The “Final” to End All Semifinals.

The reason I posted the video of Rafael Nadal in Monte-Carlo is because it was there that “this” all started. “This” being the debate that Nadal should be seeded higher for the French Open based on his overall career and not his current ranking.

French Open Opening Day: Confusion Makes It Special.

It’s been a long day, at least for me as I woke up at 2am this morning to watch the opening match of Roland Garros 2011. The Sunday start to the event continues to get mixed reviews from both fans and players. When asked about in her post match press conference, Svetlana Kuznetsova said it felt “weird” but also nailed the reason behind the odd start day due to the event wanting to make more money on an extra day of ticket sales.
