Hewitt - Karlovic
Junqueira - Capdeville
Massu - Koellerer
Gulbis - Querrey
Zverev - Starace
Tipsarevic - Montanes
Bellucci - Vassallo Arguello
Santoro - C. Rochus
Korolev - Gimeno-Traver
Ferrero - Ljubicic

Picks due by start of play Sunday, good luck!

kickserve, can I joined the pick. I forgot about this . Only Hewitt-Karlovic and Gulbis - Querrey play on Sunday. Others will be play on MOnday right? So I just forfeit the Hewitt-Karlovic and Gulbis-Querrey pick.

Junqueira - Capdeville = Capdeville win.
Massu - Koellerer = Massu win.
Zverev - Starace = Zverev win.
Tipsarevic - Montanes = Montanes win.
Bellucci - Vassallo Arguello = Vassallo A win
Santoro - C. Rochus = Santoro win
Korolev - Gimeno-Traver = Gimeno-Traver win.
Ferrero - Ljubicic = Ljubicic win

PS: I just realised that this pick ,em competitions were not only for the 4 Grand Slam but also include the 9 TMS. I am so behind the overall ranking. lol

That's OK, good luck with the rest of the tournament. I'll be sending out PM's for future rounds.

Zverev counts as a loss as the match had started, Junqueira won his match vs. Capdeville  :confused1: Do you mean Bellucci? Again, as the match had started, it counts.

I do think lots of players who are injured enter this competition anyway. Tons of them are retired after few sets. Why they entered if they know they are injured? Cause the pay are the best even for first round loss?   :mad1:
Better if they just did not enter French Open and give the chance to healthy lucky loser in qualifier round.

Anyway, I do hope all top seed did not had any serious injury and can play the best of their ability. (looking at Davydenko and Monfils  :)) )

A little ranting here:

Good god, James Blake lost to a rank 93 in the worl in first round in staright sets, Leonardo Mayer and this is Mayer first French Open.

After seeing he had at least decent start in clay court season , I  predict at least he will reach round three this year. Guess I am 100% wrong. Luckily, kick serve did not had this macth as a pick  :rofl_2:
