Enjoyed it more than Wimbledon. Was pretty easy to get midweek tickets for a show court. Weather was nice. Hardly any queue to get on outside courts. Much easier to walk around the grounds without huge numbers of people. Will go again.
pretty common experience IMO. ease of getting good tickets is a big difference between Wimbledon and Roland Garross

I feel like Tsonga has the most legit chance of anyone we mentioned to take the title, but I don't recall his odds being overly long.
Nishikori? On him at 30/1 after a tip from a sports betting friend of mine.

Betting on someone besides the top 5 seeds and Thiem has the same ROI as lighting your money on fire.

Re: 2016 Roland Garros WOAT slam AINEC

To be fair a couple of years back, betting the top 4 was a great ROI.

No longer do we have a big four.

IDK why people expect anything, half the WTA has a 1.5 yr run into top 10 and is never heard from again. I mean..... there are a lot of other cute ones, I don't get this obsession. I guess because she is American(ish)?

Interesting that Novak has more match wins than Rafa. Wouldn't have thought that but get Novak has been more consistent throughout the last few years to over take. Plus a big proportion of their earlier careers.

Canadian Women are the nuts in my book and to answer your question it's Alize Lim, page 1. Giorgi took her out in straights.

Love watching the atmosphere of Tsonga/Monfils matches at RG.

Also like watching Baghdatis play.

Novak has played one more grand slam than Rafa. The 2005 Aus Open was Novak's first and Nadal's 5th, but Nadal has missed 5 through injury since then (Novak 0).

Edit: 16 more wins from one more grand slam means Novak wins more matches per tournament on average, however Nadal's match win percentage is slightly higher because he averages less losses (since he has 3 more titles).

Have barely been watching this slam, but tomorrow is the first day that I am starting to gain some real interest. Usually love the earlier rounds, but lol FO.

Yep and it doesn't help that it's impossible to watch unless you somehow have the tennis channel. No highlights that I've seen. Most people probably have no idea this is even going on. It's incredible

Well after a surprise coup at the AO we are back at normal. 2nd week without ze germans. Zverev has tough matchups ahead of him so him making next week would be a huge surprise.
