Logically 3rd round on Friday, 4th round on Sunday. If the weather doesn't mess with the scheduling.

Gasquet ● B.Baker ● Soderling ● Wawrinka ● Federer ● Goffin ● Sijsling ● Youzhny ● Thiem ● Gulbis ● Mahut ● Brown ● F.Mayer ● Tomic

Re: Who's Going?

How does that add, could you help? Is it because round 1 is played 3 days (so I heard)?

1 Sunday
2 Wednesday
3 Friday
4 Sunday

Yes.

If I'm not mistaking, this is how it should go since this year the bottom half starts first:

Code:
Sun 26 may: R1 bottom-half
Mon 27 may: R1 top-half + bottom-half
Tue 28 may: R1 top-half
Wen 29 may: R2 bottom-half
Thu 30 may: R2 top-half
Fri 31 may: R3 bottom-half
Sat 1 june: R3 top-half
Sun 2 june: R4 bottom-half
Mon 3 june: R4 top-half
Tue 4 june: QF bottom-half
Wen 5 june: QF top-half
Tue 6 june: Women SF
Fri 7 june: Men SF
Sat 8 june: Women F
Sun 9 june: Men F

Gasquet ● B.Baker ● Soderling ● Wawrinka ● Federer ● Goffin ● Sijsling ● Youzhny ● Thiem ● Gulbis ● Mahut ● Brown ● F.Mayer ● Tomic

Re: Who's Going?

Has anyone been on the practice courts on the Saturday? Do you know if there's any chance of seeing the men finalists practising there, or will they be practising on Chatrier only?
I have understood now that by the end of the tournament, the players who are scheduled to play their match on Lenglen or Chatrier will usually practice there earlier during the day, and they have priority over the other players who have to practice on the smaller courts.
But maybe on the Saturday, since there are few players left, all of them (including the men) practice on Chatrier? Does anyone know?

Difficult to say. I've been on Friday and Saturday, but I didn't see anyone from the top training. I will soon upload my photos, although there aren't too many, I was too busy watching and enjoying.

There were probably a lot of them who were training, though. Even this Tuesday, I still saw Jankovic, Serena, Azarenka, I heard that Rafa was on court 4, and I know that yesterday Tsonga was on court 12 and Ferrer could be seen on one of the small courts as well (yes, just on the day I wasn't there). The week before I saw Rafa, Fognini, Robredo, Wawrinka, Janowicz, Tipsarevic and Schiavone.

That's possible... Basically he could be seen on all the days when I wasn't there

My visit to Roland Garros

It is in Croatian, but you can use Google translate. And you have the link to the gallery underneath. Enjoy.
