"SCARY START FOR RAFA"

AFTER LOSING THE 1ST SET TIE-BREAKER THEN BEING DOWN IN THE SECOND SET
TIE BREAKER 3-0 ONE BEGAN TO WONDER!  IS THIS IT FOR THE KING OF CLAY TO GO DOWN IN THE 2ND GRAND SLAM OF THE YEAR ON HIS FAVORITE SURFACE AT THE ROLAND GARROS IN PARIS FRANCE.  THIS STILL I THINK IS THE MOST PUNISHING OF ALL THE EVENTS, BECAUSE IT REQUIRES PATIENCE, ENDURANCE,
BALANCE AND FOR THE GREAT ONES TIMING OF THE SLIDE IS SOMETHING THE AMERICANS  BESIDES ANDRE & SERENA HAVE ACCOMPLISH!  THE SURFACE THESE DAYS ARE A BIT FASTER, THE RACQUETS ADD EXTRA MILES TO THE GROUND STROKES AND SERVE.  ALSO THE ATHLETES ARE VERY GUMBY LIKE FIT AND ACROBATIC.  THIS IS WHERE WE PICK UP RAFA WHERE DANIEL BRANDS REALLY STROKE THE BALL WITH CONVICTION BUT THE DESIRE AND DETERMINATION OF NADAL CLICKED IN WINNING THE 2ND SET TIE-BREAK (7-4) THEN THE NEXT 2 SETS NOT EASILY BUT 6-4, 6-3 TO WIN HIS 37TH MATCH THIS SEASON WITH 16 VICTORIES IN A ROW.  BRAND KEPT TH POINTS SHORT, AIMED FOR THE LINES BUT RAFA IS JUST A MAGNET FOR THE BALL LEAPING, SLIDING, PUMPING THE FIST.  NADAL STATED "HE MADE ME SUFFER"!  TO BEAT NADAL YOU HAVE TO GO FOR BROKE.  YOU NEED EVERY SHOT IN THE BOOK PLUS SOME CREATIVE FOOTWORK AND A CHESS LIKE MENTAL GAME PLAN.  OVERALL YOU GOTTA HAVE HEAVY ARTILLARY AND ALWAYS BRING YOUR LUNCH!

NO UPSETS ON THE MEN'S SIDE OR THE WOMEN'S SIDE "YET".  GAEL PLAYED A
WONDERFUL MATCH AGAINST BERDYCH  AS THE FRENCH WOULD LOVE TO SEE
SOMETHING THEY HAVE NOT SEEN IN 30 YEARS SINCE YANNICK NOAH WHO WAS THE SINGLES CHAMPION IN 1983.  FRANCE WOULD CLOSE DOWN FOR A WEEK IF THIS WERE TO BE.  HE LOOKS SOLID AFTER GOING TO THE SEMI'S 2 TIMES RECENTLY AND THE OTHER SIDE OF MONFILS IS SHOWING UP AS HE IS EMPLORING PATIENCE NOT HITTING  VAGUE BUT WITH A PURPOSE TAKING DOWN
THE 6TH PLAYER IN THE WORLD.

JOHN ISNER  HAS A CLAY COURT TROPHY UNDER HIS BELT!  CAN THE BIG GUY BRING HIS "A" GAME TO THE FRENCH FANS?  WITH THAT WING SPAN AND THAT SERVE OOH LA LA!

SERENA, LI NA, AND MARIA ALL HAD EASY MATCHES UNDER AN HOUR.  WHO KNOWS SCIAVONE LOOKS PRIME TO HAVE A RUN AS SHE BAGGELED FER OPPONENT IN THE FIRST SET.  WILL SLOANE STEPHENS SET MATTERS STRAIGHT AT THIS SLAM?  BETH MADDOX SANDS IS ALSO HYPED AS SHE PLAYS GREAT OF THE RED STUFF AS WELL!  VENKA WILL PROBALY END UP IN THE FINALS ALONG WITH SERENA OR MARIA! NO ONE I'M FOND OF ACCEPT STOSUR WHO LOOKED GOOD PLAYING THE POWER GAME IN HER 1ST ROUND MATCH AGAINST KIMIKO DATE THE 42 YEAR OLD FROM JAPAN!
