Come back at Wimbledon.

Pffft, since I root against her so much now she is destined to win Wimbledon without losing a set.

This was probably posted here already and I missed it, but here's more French Open karaoke. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmuuXd-BnCc&feature=youtu.be)

I am so glad they brought back French Open karaoke. I about died laughing watching Soderling :D

I read this thread every day hoping to see all the "OMG Henin LOST" posts but no luck so far.

I don't think such posts are going to happen for at least a month.

WTH happened in the Monfils match? I missed it! :(

ETA: Just seen a replay of Monfils-Fognini on Eurosport. What a ridiculous ending! Have to say, apart from the clearly idiotic referee, Monfils did NOT come across well after that.

Thank you, Paris rain! My day off and I don't regret not waking up at 5am for tennis! :cheer2:

Jankovic took the first set vs. Kanepi, then we have the conclusion of Monfils vs. Fognini. :watch: I'm almost a little scared! Caught the last few seconds of the M/F match yesterday and the crowd sounded rabid! :yikes:

What happened? :watch:

According to FrenchOpen.com:

9.35 pm: Monfils comes back from 0-30 to hold, 4-4. Monfils wants to carry on, Fognini wants off… His corner are saying "No no no", so Monfils gets the crowd to start cheering. Will we play on? It looks like it..

9.39 pm: One more game then that's it, so we'll finish at 5-4! Fognini wants off, he's trying to leave, but Steafn Fransson, ITF Grand Slam supervisor, won't let him! High drama in fading light... Fognini complains some more and the umpire docks him a point! 0-15! Fabio levels it up at 15-all after a 21-shot rally, with the pro-Monfils crowd booing lustily. The next one is 29 shots, and again LaMonf puts one wide. 30-15.

The Frenchman eventually saves 3 match points!

(Bold highlights by yours truly......thats some intense drama!)

Gosh, normally I don't care about WTA at all but I'm really sorry to see Ivanovic doing so poorly. :yikes:

Sounds like it would've been just dessert for Monfils and the French crowd if he'd have whiffed a ball (a literal shot in the dark) on one of those match points.

Monfils was a bit of a prick here last year, too, IIRC (or was it the year before).

And the Russian hulk serves Ana a bagel in the 2nd to take the match. OUCH! Get thee to a shrink, pronto, Miss Ivanovic.

Elena takes the first set! With the typical Dementieva match stats ... 15 breakpoints. (Er, Roddick's match also has 15 breakpoints. Serving problems today, boys?)

Davenport - er, whoopz! - Kanepi takes the second set, evens the match!

The Estonian's coach looks like one of the dudes from ABBA. :respec:

And they have a bit of a bear daddy for a chair ump. :dog:
