Sign-in for the doubles is Tuesday, so I think the draw will actually be out sometime in the evening, then we'll know. Have no idea about the Mixed, except for Navratilova, and probably Gasquet/Hot pants to defend their title.

Gasquet is already playing in the men's doubles as well, so I don't think he would participate in the mixed this year.

He's ranked #31, so not really a top player. :p

Not yet, but I saw him yesterday for the first time and he promises a lot. For this year, however, I feel that the pressure at RG will be too much for him, I seriously advise the French media not to copy the British ;)

I think nr 31 is quite high... Considering he's only 18 or 19 or so...

31 in entry rankings but 15 in the race this year. only 14 better players so far this year so surely a top player.

as for the media? I think that Gasquet will do whatever he does despite the media. champions are champions because of who they are. I don't think the media in the UK would have made a jot of difference to whether Tim could have won Wimby by now if they had stopped reporting on him altogether in the last 10 years.

The mixed doubles was the first time i actually saw gasquet play (final). Wasnt impressed at all to be honest, SUCH an improved player now! simply no comparison from last year.
