    French Open Predictions Thread

    Just like the australian open we will tip on the winner of each match, with points doubling per round meaning the final is worth 64 points, semis 32 and so on.

    Tipping closes at 7pm AEST each day, england is 9 hours behind, so work that out...

    Day 1 Matches (worth 1 point each)

    Roger Federer (SUI)[1] vs Dudi Sela (ISR)
    Julien Benneteau (FRA) vs Gaston Gaudio (ARG)[5]
    Sebastien Grosjean (FRA)[23] vs Juan Monaco (ARG)
    Daniele Bracciali (ITA) vs Richard Gasquet (FRA)[30]

    Alberto Martin (ESP) vs Carlos Moya (ESP)[14]
    Luis Horna (PER) vs Jerome Haehnel (FRA)
    Thierry Ascione (FRA) vs Davide Sanguinetti (ITA)
    Juan Ignacio Chela (ARG)[31] vs Rainer Schuettler (GER)
    Nicolas Almagro (ESP) vs Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER)
    Jiri Novak (CZE)[26] vs Bjorn Phau (GER)
    Marcos Daniel (BRA) vs Mario Ancic (CRO)[18]
    Jiri Vanek (CZE) vs David Ferrer (ESP)[20]
    Paradorn Srichaphan (THA) vs Radek Stepanek (CZE)[16]
    David Nalbandian (ARG)[10] vs Marcos Baghdatis (CYP)
    Andrei Pavel (ROM) vs Florent Serra (FRA)
    Juan Pablo Brzezicki (ARG) vs Tim Henman (GBR)[7]
    Tomas Berdych (CZE) vs Jeff Morrison (USA)
    Dmitry Tursunov (RUS) vs Stefan Koubek (AUT)
    Peter Wessels (NED) vs Ricardo Mello (BRA)
    Hyung-Taik Lee (KOR) vs Alex Calatrava (ESP)
    Robin Vik (CZE) vs Kevin Kim (USA)
    Christophe Rochus (BEL) vs Tomas Behrend (GER)
    Oscar Hernandez (ESP) vs Daniel Gimeno-Traver (ESP)
    Victor Hanescu (ROM) vs Michal Tabara (CZE)

    naa we only tipped on mens matches during the australian open, and the womens games is far too predictable and not very interesting at all... except when Sharapova, Hantuchova, Dulko, Dimentieva etc... are playing

    Winning and losing is a part of it all and isnt the be all and end all really so I would maintain it rocked regardless

    I dont remember regarding the things in the previous torunament regarding the tips being private but I think that would be cool from the QF onwards too..

    On second thoughts I think it would be cooler to be a bit more flexible with those wanting to not disclose their quarter finals onwards tips to e mail them to you and others who dont mind disclosing their tips publicly to be allowed to do the same.

    Some people may just be too lazy to go for emailing..
