At least, Ferrer seems like a genuine contender.

Circe what were the crowd like it always feels like he dosent get much support from the French crowd when your watching it on the tv.Why that would be i dont know maybe it was just my imagination.
It's an,erm, interesting crowd.  Their preferences seem to be based on citizenship - anti-Spanish and American for sure.  So very little Ferrer support against swiss Stan.  And I understand from a friend that racist chants are not unknown :shudder:  

On the plus side, UK fans could learn something about getting behind their Andy.  I was pro-Tsongo and so the gladitorial circus and Mexican waves was great to be part of.  BTW that bongo was totally tourney-endorsed - it was coming from one of the blue sponsor and friend stands.

In Andy's second match, the crowd started as pro-Andy, but they were even more pro-giant slayers.  And given the topsy-turvy nature of this event historically, they get plenty of it.

By the second half of the first set, some pretty unpleasant characters sat behind me, yelling at Andy to double-fault.  So it was fairly horrid when I picked up my stuff on Andy's match point ready to go, only for him to completely wig out on 3 consecutive points.  But I'm an Andy fan because of the rollercoaster, not despite it.  And now I've seen him play twice, so I'm still hugging myself,

Now time for bed - I went straight to work from the airport this morning so I've had about 27 hrs of tennis and 10 hours of sleep in the last 3 days.  But I totally want to do it again next year.

Mmm.  I'll take the other side. Ferrer to bt Jerzy I reckon.  Ferrer incapable of tanking, and at this stage of career would value Masters title more than making up the numbers in London.  Jerzy hot and muscling in on Raonic hype.

But some impressive French performances on home soil that's for sure.

Well at least you enjoyed it regardless of a partizan crowd.

Sorry scotnadian - I'm a weird non-camera person.  Occassionally, I half regretted that, what with being touching distance from Tipsy, Monaco, Raonic, Querry, Almagro and pretty, pretty Feli.  And overlooking the net after 10pm for Ferrer-Wawarinka and the Raonic-Chardy snoozefest.

I swear: if Milos and Janko are the next generation, I'm going to skip it.  C'mon Kei!

I don't mind Janowicz, but Raonic is extremely BORING!
