    The independent CW Tennis Watchdog made the decision to award the discretionary wildcard to West CWLand's Rick Langley due to his recent good form. Roy Daniels was subsequently quoted as saying "I'm gonna firebomb those ****s", but we can't substantiate that yet.

    Yet another bit of institutional embarassment for the West - Read was already in the main draw. Langley gets the wildcard.

    Apologies in advance for this first page which over the coming weeks is going to turn into one great big picture dump.

    Roland Garros Qualifying preview - the active CWLanders

    • Randy Banks: His third seed is a sign of how far he's come, and he's been given a fairly generous qualifying section. British teenager Michael Posinović should pose no threat early, but Christian Mary is a more difficult prospect in the second round of qualifying. Evgeny Volkoff his likely qualifying round opponent. Chances: Good, provided he avoids a scare against Mary. His clay ability is questionable.


    • Marcuss Deane: Seeded four, the teen will be looking to become the youngest player in the main draw. His chances are good, really, with a managable draw. Unlike Banks he has clay form to back up his campaign. Chances: Very good. He's still young and has played a lot of tennis lately, but he is a truly exciting prospect and there's not a lot of guns in his section.


    • Julian Clipton-Marshall: JCM received a wildcard in dodgy circumstances, and I'm really not sure what to make of him on this surface (or any for that matter). World No. 244 Guilliano Soave is winnable first up, but he's drawn a really tough section with the likes of Mario Timko, Jaime Barral and Taavi Aleksejev. Chances: Unlikely, but who knows with these CWLand guys? JCM is a self-professed serve and volleyer and I can't see it working on this surface against this opposition.


    • Pierre Rose: Ouch - he's drawn the best player in the draw in the second round of qualifying and a former top twenty player. He's a real shot of beating Max Eisenhauer in the first round, but Maarten Berg on clay is a tough prospect for any player let alone a World No. 205 out of match practice and without solid clay results. Chances: Needs a miracle, really. Berg can drop matches he should win, but there's some good points on offer here and I don't think he'll surrender them.

    I must admit there's a few players I've wanted to see do well based on the name fakenamegenerator has thrown out. Bartlett Babin and Wyatt LeRoux are two of those.

    Roland Garros II - Men's Singles Qualifying
    Grand Slam - Tuesday (1st Qualifying Round) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • Pierre Rose has picked up a dramatic three-set win to advance to the second round of qualifying in Paris. Rose came from a set down and saved three match points in the third set to edge past Max Eisenhauer in an extremely tight affair. A see-sawing contest was level at 6-6 in the third set after Rose had bravely fought off three opportunities for Eisenhauer to win, and the West CWLander earned what would be a decisive break of serve. The German needed to break back immediately but could not do it as a near three-hour affair finally came to an end with Rose a 6-7(6), 6-4, 8-6 winner. He now meets Chile's Alex Rojas who beat 33rd seed Pat Hewitt 6-3, 6-4.


    • Randy Banks was untroubled in his opening match as the third seed trounced Michael Posinović in straight sets. The West CWLander played a convincing match as he outgunned the promising British youngster in a 6-1, 6-4 win. He plays Christian Mary next which is sure to be a tougher matchup.


    • Marcuss Deane likewise took a confident win as he beat Italy's Evans Russo in straight sets. Deane was irresistable early as he dominated the Italian, but was given a better hit out in the second as Russo produced an improved serving performance to take it to a tiebreaker. In a close set, Deane took the breaker and the match 6-0, 7-6(5) to book a second round clash with Vladimir Stakhanov who beat Frank Smith 6-0, 4-6, 7-5.


    • Finally, Julian Clipton-Marshall produced a thoroughly impressive win against Italy's Guilliano Soave. Repaying the faith of the French Open organisers to give him a qualifying wildcard, JCM had too much power and guile for Soave in his destructive 6-1, 6-4 win. He's not a classical clay courter, but he will get to play again tomorrow as he meets Taavi Aleksejev of Estonia. The 27th seed came back from a bad start to beat Miguel Molina 2-6, 6-3, 9-7.


    • Finally, 21st seed Ishan Narang made a winning start but was taken the distance by Swede Patrik Boman. Narang played solid tennis but was far from his best in the 6-3, 4-6, 6-4 win, but he plays Jason Schmidt next who was a 6-7(5), 6-4, 8-6 winner in a draining matchup.


    • Other CWLand winners included Jason Lawley (b Vilkki 60 61); Phoenix Wleft (b Nesterov 26 61 97) and David Briggs (b Gonzá 63 06 64).

    and yes I made a mistake in putting Maarten Berg in here. He's already made the cut for Roland Garros and is playing Nice. ****

    Haha **** no. I just whacked an alternate in there because no one is ranked high enough to be top seed that isn't already in the main RG draw.
