Do you know where the draws can be found? I'm checking the Roland Garros website, but it's a real mess. Also can't even find the tournament schedule, order of play, etc... Help would be appreciated!

As for Chung - it'll be a big ask. He's flying from Seoul and will be exhausted & jetlagged, he's played a TON of tennis recently, and I don't think red clay is his most comfortable surface (and he hasn't played on it in donkey's years). But he's a good player and I'm not gonna count him out.

Great 1st round matchup. Chung is the better player, but he's probably exhausted from his recent run so I think Jared will take the win.

I think Chung will take this, even taking into account the number of matches he has played recently (and on a different surface).

Donaldson put up a good fight for the RG WC and I like his game. But he struggled against players that were weaker than Chung. Last week he got routined by Pouille.

I'm ready to ban myself if Donaldson ever makes a GS final.
Well you've got a few years left then, enjoy till it last. JD to make a slam final is pretty much a guarantee imho.

Wow, this could be a very interesting match. I think Donaldson is the one that Jeff Salzenstein pegged as the one to watch this year.

But, I am hoping for Chung in 2!

I disagree. Time will tell.

Seeing Chung in a GS final someday would be equally as shocking.
I'm still uncertain about that, but I'm pretty sure there was never such an ugly forehand in a GS final. Edberg's looks like a beauty in comparison.

I agree that his forehand looks a little weird. But, once he goes into a forward swing, he does have a straight arm forehand like Nadal and Federer.

According to this high performance coach, that is a huge advantage.

Great content by the way if you are serious about playing tennis.

Gutted about this one. Both are good enough for the main draw and are great talents. Seems theirs a personal vendetta to make sure Chung doesn't get to the main draw. Can't call this one.

The question is whether Chung even remembers how to play on clay. He's basically jumping into the mud with no clay warmup whatsoever. I think he's looking ahead at Wimbledon already.

Still, Donaldson is not exactly a world beater on clay either, so this match might turn out to be a total mugfest.
