On his 19th birthday Novak Djokovic, 63rd player in the world decided to make his fans glad and take the place at the "Country Club" exhibitional tournament in Paris.

In his first match, Nole will play Paradorn Srichaphan from Thailand (this year Indian Wells semifinalist), 39th on ATP singles rankings. This "clash" is scheduled for Tuesday.

Novak Djokovic def. Paradorn Srichaphan 6:3, 6:3!

In the tomorrow's semifinals he will face 1st seed, James Blake.

Second 1/2 pair is: Marcos Baghdatis vs. Grosjean or Serra!

Murray pulled out!

Tomorrow, apparently.
My Eurosport schedule says:
Semi-finals on Wednesday on Eurosport 2 (15:00-18:00) - LIVE
Final on Thursday on Eurosport (17:30-18:30) - LIVE
Match for the 3rd place on Thursday on Eurosport 2 (21:00-22:00)

Sans garantie, that's the schedule they sent me one month ago!
