Quick: What's your favorite Roland Garros moment?

If you're like us and you can't decide, then you needn't worry. You don't have to choose just one.

Video: Papa Federer Practices with Nick Kyrgios in Zurich

This video of the five best “completely crazy” moments in the Roland Garros history takes viewers on an eight-minute, 18-second jaunt through the annals of the event's tragicomic history that makes us feel as if we have actually traveled through time. We see the footprints and ballmarks in the beloved terre battue, hear the roar of the rowdy French crowds in Chatrier, witness Michael Chang's underhand serve, Marat Safin mooning the world, and Guga, lying on his back inside his giant heart.

In the end, we feel completely satisfied but with still enough energy left to begin a perpetual debate about which of our favorite moments were cruelly left off the list.

(Feel free to offer up your opinions on that)

Two quick observations from the vid:

Safin is known for pulling his shorts down in what is one of the strangest reactions to winning a point in tennis history, but the athleticism and cool that he displays during the point is what we really should remember. Okay, maybe not...

Venus coming out with her camera and snaking her way to the front of the photography pit to take snapshots of Serena with the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen after their 2002 final is such a beautiful, playful move. In our opinion, one of the most emotionally acute moments in Williams Sisters history.

Stay tuned for more of these posts, as Roland Garros has released a series of top 5 compendiums on its YouTube page.
