Anyone been watching the French Open? Usually its the tournament I enjoy the least due to the slow pace and the endless baseline rallies. But this year I've been watching Barty with Aussie eyes and she has been going very well. At the risk of cursing her she's got a great chance of going all the way now that she has made the semis. I think she might even be the top seeded player now that Halep is gone.

O, I'm a Barty fan mate, think she playing very courageous in her style, not afraid of approaching the net and maybe has the best volleys in women tennis, this is something we should admire in the era when the modern players are 99% base-court hitters despite some of them have a decent volleys too.

A bit strange Barty reached a GS final exactly at the clay but..

Too bad I've missed all the matches this year, wouldn't be the case if I knew some of the scores and the upsets there, the final would be between two girls never reached there before so everything could happen I guess...will support Barty though.

Ha I didn't even jinx her. She smashed it in a one sided final. I didn't even end up watching it though because of the rain delay and then they were finishing off the men's semi final. It was way past midnight and they still had not started so I decided to go to bed instead.

You're right it is strange she won it on clay. Her own parents didn't even get there as they had booked flights to London to watch her play in Wimbledon as they never imagined she would get so far in Paris.

Yeah...maybe the final was the easiest match Barty had to play on this years tournament, Vondrousova never seems to get going in that and maybe that's been even expected having in mind her inexperience not only in later stages of the GS tournaments but in general.

I think Barty's certain now she made the right choice picking tennis instead of cricket...does she!?!

Halep was really convincing against Williams in the final, that's about the best I've seen her ever played, really strong and confident which just shows how good of a player she could be when she's in top form.

Perfectly happy with Halep winning Wimbledon and Barty Fench Open this year.

Yeah its great to see some variety in the winners and both are really good and likeable players. I don't think anyone could begrudge them winning a major each.

Ha-ha...probably nobody except for the Serena fans who's after a few records I believe..but she was never in my book of the most talented players although I can't deny she has the character...and quite a bit of physical dominance as well.
