why did roger not catch the french this year? who'd he lose to, or did he even play? i don't know, i only got to watch the men's final.

He lost to Kuerten in the round of 32. Not a bad loss.

Ok Seb what would you do if Roger were to win 3 majors in 2005? Just curious.

I'd say that he's had TWO incredibly special years! But I seriously doubt that he'll get 3 in one year ever again. People jumped on this same bandwagon after Wilander won 3 in one year ... 87 or 88 I believe. Everyone expected him to keep winning like that. It didn't happen.

Fed is having a year which is making him seem much better than everyone else. But he is a human being, he may win 2 majors next year but I really don't think he'll win 3 in one year ever again. And, of course, if he wins the Grand Slam I'll eat my shorts without condiments and provide the pictures.

I just don't think people realize what a special year this is for Roger. He's not going to dominate the field like this every year. It's just not going to happen. He seems far superior to all other players because of the year he's having. But this perceived superiority is not reality.
