Roland Garros 2008

So I open the thread





Single Draw pulls out tomorrow and Doubles Draw will be available on Monday. First round begins on sunday : 16 men's single will be played this day.

What can we expect of this tournament?

Re: Roland Garros 2008

When I watch the draw wasn't donne in fact. It was only position.

Monfils is a little bit injured but don't worry Arnaud can loose!

Re: Roland Garros 2008

Re: Roland Garros 2008

i think this could be a good match. arnaud built at least a bit of confidence this last week, and gael looked slightly injured at the end of his run in casablanca. i still see la monf coming out ahead

Simon, Mannarino, Chardy,
Paire, Benneteau, Gicquel

Muzza

Fogna

Dolgopolov, Petzschner, Kamke, Malisse, Haase, Andujar, Riba

Re: Roland Garros 2008

Verdasco could be a better option! lol Against Gael there is also a Frenchman vs Frenchman thing (must be fun to watch anyway).
Well... now let's wait for the doubles draw

In that case, I'll buy a tv for my colleagues with the condition they'll let me watch everything, even if it's only on a French channel
