French Connection…


The French connection did have its share of nail biting matches on the 2007 circuit….

The traditional rivalry between the French and the English defining ‘opposites’ seem to extend to the Roland Garros and Wimbledon. The bright red Parisian Clay of the Garros had to be in defining contrast with the lush green striped Grass of the Wimbledon. Even the players seem to be rigid by showing their favoritism , maintaining the exclusivity in wearing their kingdom’s winning crowns n fighting hard to elude themselves’ from the rival triumph, all this proved excessively by Sampras, McEnroe, Becker and now Fedrer, all confirming their loyalty to the Queen by not wanting to get too dirty on the French Clay, so as to retain their presentable best in whites for the Wimbledon at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club to be followed in a few weeks after their French connection..... Only the impartial few world citizens (6 to be precise ending with Andre Agassi) seem to lend their service to the ancient empires on equal basis.

And with Nadal having electing himself as the Eiffel towers bigget fan for the 3nd consequietive time and proved his love to it by not even knowing the Queen’s language, he seemd to have stuck his legs in clay for quite some time to come …….. as Federer still not wanting to hit the right note with the French…… After Nadal’s lionlike sharp looks/cuts in keeping Roger off his space, now it wud be the latter's turn on the Greens. They seem to have taken over the mattle from Agassi-Sampras, n with no grt challenge from masters like Courier, Becker, Ivanisevic things r up for these two….

Switzerland known to be the best in the orbit of Swiss Banks, Swiss Watches, Swiss Choclates & Swiss Federer…. The Swiss have this knack of reinventing all these time n again and looks like its time to work on the last one… well he has certainly carved his name along with the greats at this very moment. Just has to work on surprassing that greatness to follow the swiss legend of "eternity"…. The french open being quite a diappointment to his fans and record books… he should be looking right now at retaining Her Majesty’s Crown next month ….

As no talk on French is complete without the mention of its women… the red clay carpet did provide a perfect venue for the french haute-couture with lots of its internationl colorful “models” hitting the “ramp” …. hey they had an accessiory too--- tennis racket!!! with our own ash doing her bit too….. in the stands this time ….looked like it was a re-run of Miss Universe contest??? All of this was very much interupted by some classy strokes (with the racket) by Henin, she wud have felt out of place… poor gurl… jus knows tennis n collecting trophies…. {not much help on the Ftv rgt :( }…

Something seem to have replaced talent in womens’ tennis circuit, have the “Steffi Grafs’” gone the dinosaur way……

Ahh the French Open.... been a while since I followed it, in any sense of the word. May be it was the retirement of Grafs, Seles, Sabatini (ladies first), Sampras, Agassi, Edberg, Courier, Brugeira... game is just not the same for me. Newer ones are far more attractive compared to the older ones but the grace-factor seems to be missing, at least in most of them...

Thanks for reminding me that I too once watched this tournament, for reasons other than just tennis as well :)
