Was genuinely going to start this thread myself Warnock

Watched a couple of games earlier, as it happens. Alize Cornet had a cracking turnaround against Vinci from a set and a break down, then watched Radwanska somehow contrive to throw away her match against Beck, despite the fact Beck could barely stand up in the third set, she was that knackered. A few big shocks already - Lopez pumped oot early bells for one.

I can never predict clay court tournaments, but have to fancy Murray to go deep into the tournament and at least match the semi final performance from a couple of years back. To win the tournament, hard to see past Djokovic. Don't think Nadal has it in him at the moment.

For the women's tournament, quite fancy Suarez Navarro to go far. Hopefully not though, because she is rank and I'm a shallow, pathetic little creep Cool

I've always found Nadal's performances a little out of this world...

Murray has to get past Nadal to get to the semis does he not? I know he beat him in the Madrid Masters but a grand slam is different. He'll push him far but can see Nadal getting past him this time.

No interest in the women's tournament unless there's some top quality on show.

Murray has found some serious confidence on the clay. Remember he was basically a clay specialist as a youngster, so it's always been strange that he's struggled so much on it. Nadal is so up and down just now that I wouldn't bet against Murray, even in 5 sets - not after that last time Laugh

Tsonga and Nishikori's QF going to a deciding set.

Judging by the fact that this was down to page 3, nobody gives a fuck Laugh

The French crowd are total cunts, every time there's a point and Nishikori is waiting to serve they're screaming. Hope Tsonga gets fucked now Laugh

Tsonga takes it - he'll play Wawrinka in the semi.

Are the big 4 all in the same half of the draw then? Or did Federer get pumped out today?

I'd love Tsonga to win a major. Brilliant player on his day and very entertaining.

I love a French crowd.
I especially like it when they go after someone - like when that Fat Pig Hingis underarm served* to Graff.

I've been well into it this year, just a shame I've been working for a lot of it. Looking forward to seeing highlights from both today's men's games, sounded well worth a watch. Proper gutted I'm missing the Djokovic vs Nadal match tomorrow, that could be a classic.

Another fan of Tsonga here - he's had a tough run as well, so if he does make it to the final he'll deserve it. Wawrinka is on good form though and has the winner's mentality more than Tsonga so I would back him to win the semi.
