They’re harder, they’re fluffier, they’re Babolat.

They’re better?

They’re faster—sure, at first.

They’re the fresh tennis balls of Babolat.

It’s goodbye, Dunlop. A new sphere dawns.

French balls at the French Open. Did you expect less?

Shouldering a heavy workload at the French Open? All that running and sliding and now this…

A song and dance about nothing, you say?

Well, let’s give the musical some lyrics and a tune.

Here’s to ballsy folk at Roland Garros.

Have a ball swinging to a remade version of Jerry Lee LewisGreat Balls of Fire.

You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain
Too much fluff drives a man insane
You broke my strings, oh what a thrill
Goodness gracious great balls of fire
I learned to love all of tennis money
You came along and you moved me honey
I changed my mind, looking fine
Goodness gracious great balls of Babolat
You kissed me racquet, Babolat, woo…..it feels good
Hold serve, Babolat, learn to let me serve you like a server should
Your fine, so kind
I’m a nervous world that your mine mine mine mine-ine
I cut my swing and I quiver my thumb
I’m really nervous but it sure is fun
Come on, Babolat, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of Babolat

Balls coming down

Well kiss me racquet, Babolat, woo-oooooo….it feels good
Hold serve, Babolat
I want to serve you like a server should
Your fine, so kind
I got this world that your mine mine mine mine-ine
I cut my swing and I quiver my thumb
I’m real nervous ’cause it sure is fun
Come on Babolat, you drive me crazy
Goodness gracious great balls of Babolat

I say goodness gracious great balls of Babolat…oooh.

Roger Federer has left the building!

The government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it. – Ronald Reagan
