The Second Grand Slam of the year begins and the we are holding our breaths to it. Who ever wins, I just hope for a great tournament with some brilliant matches.

With this we will also have our daily prediction game where you can predict your winner in a given match. Rules are simple and most here already know about it. Tenez is the champ here, so lets try to beat him down.

1.

Gilles Simon (FRA) [15]
vs.
Lleyton Hewitt (AUS) [33]

Interesting first round match. Simon is know to frustrate opponents into submission, and he will be backed by the French crowd. But Hewitt is no easy to pass through. A good match in the making.

2.

Viktor Troicki (SRB) [33]

vs.
James Blake (USA) [33]

Rider match, it can go anyone's way depending on the form of the day.

3.

Marcel Granollers (ESP) [31]
vs.
Feliciano Lopez (ESP) [33]

Off late Granollers has done much better than Feli who I think is returning from some injury(?).

4.

Milos Raonic (CAN) [14]
vs.
Xavier Malisse (BEL) [33]

Raonic should be good to make it on paper, but he is either too hot or too cold. Malisse has the game to beat him.

5.

Andreas Seppi (ITA) [20]
vs.
Leonardo Mayer (ARG) [33]

Seppi looks to take it. But he has been poor in form off late. Can anyone take this gamble?

6.

Steve Darcis (BEL)
vs.
Michael Llodra (FRA)

Another tough choice which of course it expected in this game. Llodra may just have a slight advantage but I'm not sure he can make good use of it.


My takes:

1. Hewitt
2. Blake
3. Granollers
4. Malisse
5. Seppi
6. Darcis

May the best win.

My pick:

Gilles Simon (FRA) [15]
James Blake (USA) [33]
Marcel Granollers (ESP) [31] Though I think he is also injured.
Milos Raonic (CAN) [14]
Leonardo Mayer (ARG) [33]
Steve Darcis (BEL)

Sure. Walkover is allowed to be taken till you get in the game. Once you get in, a day miss is taken as all incorrect predictions. Of course all in light spirit.

Errani really plays a lung-busting game. Keep moonballing till the opponent has no strength left to carry on.

anyone watching?

I hope I'm not too late.
I promise I didn't look at the scoreboard, have been too busy working out how to get from Paris Nord to my hotel tomorrow by Metro (women and maps..... Winking )
Rotla, please don't penalise me if I don't enter my choices for Tuesday. I don't know if I'll be able to connect when I'm there.
Am supposed to be on Chatrier all day, it's round 1 still, so I have no idea who I am going to see (it says 2 men's and two women's matches in the schedule), since Nole is most likely to play tomorrow...maybe PAIRE!!!!! The way my luck is....it will be Nadull...in which case I'll let him know what I think of him.
All I hope is it doesn't rain...

Simon, Troicki, Lopez, Malisse, Seppi, Llodra.

I know I have made at least two wrong choices here, but...

And, thanks for the thread, rotla Star , I hope either Nole and I win this RG, ideally Nole, though Somersault

She ain't linked to another famous Spanish doctor (Morales) for nothing. Not watching her, though.

Simon is the new Hewitt. He did to Hewitt what Hewitt did to others at his peak...that is asphyxiating his opponents.
