Who were the two withdrawals so far. I think Grosjean was one, but who was the other?

Actually I got that confirmed just now, this is what happened. Like I said before there were players who knew that they weren't going to make it and they didn't withdraw.

Fognini is doubtful, del Potro would be as well.

Nice move by the Slams this time, players won't be able to speculate anymore about getting in or not, or losing on purpose to allow a ''friend'' get in.

Problem with this is, that while in theory it's a good idea, it punishes the ones who are trying their best to qualify and whose ranking is good enough to enter, but starting the qualies as early as they do at RG, means there are usually more LL's than at the other Slams.

What a "lucky" Bellucci.... just enjoy!

I personally like this better than picking random out of the top4.

Topseeded would have been my most favourite choice though.

no surprise, Kiefer was really frustrated after his loss to Tursunov

after the match he said sth. like:
"Why should I go to Paris the way I 'm playing now. I will only go there if I'm rested and 100 % mentally fit. The way I've been playing here it makes no sense."

Jakke is not in great form, but there are lot of other suspect ones to me.

Looks like my call of 6-8 LLs is going to be likely. At the same time this is making harder for me to write previews.

Hope Tsonga can get back to full health, sure Lucho got the break, at the same time he should never have been in this position.

Terrible luck for Tsonga. I'm so disappointed that he won't be able to play on the grass. Also seems doubtful he'll be ready for the US hardcourt run. Hope he recovers well.

Tsonga has withdrawn. It's in the news.

Horna was 5th on the list of LLs.

Pull outs have been Grosjean, Haas, Fognini, Kiefer and Tsonga.

So you can do the mathematics from here.

Tennis-Open-Injured Tsonga pulls out of Roland Garros

Sat May 24, 2008 4:01pm BST Email | Print | Share| Single Page| Recommend (0) [-] Text [+] PARIS, May 24 (Reuters) - France's Jo-Wilfried Tsonga has pulled out of the French Open with a knee injury, French technical director Patrice Dominguez said on Saturday.

The Australian Open finalist, who was seeded 14th, will undergo surgery on a broken meniscus on Tuesday morning.

"(Tsonga's coach) Eric Winogradsky called me an hour ago to tell me that not only Jo was pulling out of the French Open but also that he would not avoid surgery," Dominguez told French radio RMC.

Tsonga, who picked up the injury in March, took a month off to recover, but had to retire from the Casablanca Open on Friday after the injury reappeared. (Reporting by Julien Pretot, editing by Miles Evans)

I think they were drawn out in order yesterday and all I know where Horna was on that list, not sure who is next, but hope it's Korolev.

Jakke has fever and has asked for the latest possible start.

Lucho's draw looks very nice right now, just hope the calf is fine.

It has worked out for Lucho, he has to take advantage of this fortune and we'll see Jakke might get a Tuesday start.

Who is going to win the Roland Garros final, Nadal or Federer??

Both Nadal and Federer are verry strong players but when it comes to playing at clay i think that nadal is going to win !!!!!

Yesterday Nadal played against Djokovic and that was a good game.
In my opinion both Nadal and Djokovic played verry good and made the game worth watching!

Also yesterday Federer played against Monfils.
Federer won with the following score 6-2 5-7 6-3 7-5.
In my opinion Federer dident play so good.
I dont know why bout he missed some verry important hits !!!

I think that tommarows game going to be a outstanding game and worth watching and i also think that Nadal is going to win!!
