lol 5 sets.

That's what you get when you have 2 mugs in the 4th round.

Looks like one of the latter matches will be put on Chatrier.

Actually it's been confirmed that one of the womens matches will be moved to court 1. Also round 4 consists of 16 players, you can't have 16 of the best players playing in every match, there is bound to be some random unseeded player that comes through. In this case Faillare.

No but jesus christ does it improve the actual viewing. When you watch standard eurosport on a HD tv it looks lburry as shit, so when they pan the camera through the crowd it gives you a headache. In HD you can see theactual detials of the Net and the motion is also much smoother.

Why would they move the women's match to court 1? I think the Chatrier crowd have been treated pretty badly. Moved Delpo/Djoker match to Lenglen, refused to let them in, they saw a set, darkness, next day match back at Lenglen. Every holdover match is put on Lenglen.

With all the focus on Nadal, it's worth observing that this is a disgraceful performance from Ljubicic. 1st serve percentage low, can't return to save his life, missing easy or routine shots again & again & again, on a day when a decent level of play would give him the chance for the biggest win of his career.

If it had been Simon out there today, he would be winning. The only reason Nadal isn't making even more errors is that Ljubishit is obligingly making them first.

Djokovic has a luck draw? Hanescu was never going to beat him and Del Potro/Gasquet would have beaten Nadal given current form and evidence.

Nadal was supposed to face Davydenko/Verdasco but both failed. His draw cleared out and he should have steamrolled. Not anyone's fault Isner took him to 5 sets and Andujar choked what might have gone to 5.

If this pearler's directed at me - where did I state Djokovic had a luck draw? I simply stated that a retirement and a w/o ain't bad luck. Fail to see how a 7-5 6-1 win in Rome translates to a Parsian win for Gasquet (infamous for playing nowhere near his best in France.) Delpo was giving a great impression of an error machine for the majority of his R3 match, those players successful against Nadal, since?!
