So you want to sound like you know what's going on at the French Open without spending all of the time watching the early round matches? Here are a few quick commentaires to throw around in the next day or two that will make you look tre's inte'rressant and incroyablement intelligent to your tennis friends!
1. What do you think of Rafael Nadal's pink shirt? I personally love it. He's good enough to pull that look off.
2. So how about that Ivo Karlovic – 55 aces in his Round 1 match and he still loses to Lleyton Hewitt!
3. I'm so happy Andy Roddick won his first round match. You know, he hasn't won at the French Open since 2005!
4. It's too bad that Bethanie Mattek-Sands had to face Venus Williams in her Round 1 match. I was really hoping Bethanie would make it a little farther. At least she won a set off Venus.
5. Wow! Can you believe it took Serena Williams 9 match points to finally win her Round 1 match!
6. How many Lacoste commercials am I going to have to watch until this is all over?
7. A' Bientot! Profitez de votre fixation de tennis!
