Oh, how everyone loves to poke fun at the French.
How rude they are, how lazy, how smug!
But at Roland Garros, the French crowds overwhelmingly supported #1 Novak Djokovic in his quest for his first French Open title and career grand slam.
It may have been Novak’s 12th major title, but it was the first time he didn’t have to battle the crowd as well.
I for one am loving all things French today.

It’s the US Open Men’s Championship. Djokovic is playing Federer. All is right with the world.
Have you spied Roger’s gear for this year’s tourney? His tennis whites are outlined in bright poppy pink.
Even his tennis shoes are dyed this neon bright color.
I’m not a fan of pink, but this isn’t an issue of personal preference.
The hot pink is an unusual choice, and I’m wondering if it was psychological. Did Roger’s team hope that the color would have its rumored effect of sapping his opponent’s strength?
Stan Wawrinka wore a similar hue in his triumphant run earlier this year at the French Open — in plaid shorts, no less.

In basketball games, the home team wears white, and the visiting team wears a more saturated color.
In tennis, the players wear whatever they please, regardless of their seed in the tournament.
That’s why all of us watching the Monte Carlo Rolex Masters tournament on Tennis Channel are experiencing eye strain.
Both players in orange jerseys.
On an orange clay court.
I believe my eyes are bleeding orange blood, too.
