I just submitted and I really picked some 'unusual' results so if our team falls in the rankings... you'll know why! :rofl_2:

Hey, I have Evgeny upsetting Robredo to get to the 3rd round and Andy loses to Melzer in the 4th round. :rofl_2:

Good luck all of you.

I see Monfils has been getting some strenuous practice in - http://estaticos03.marca.com/albumes/2009/05/20/fotosdia20mayo/1242849487_extras_albumes_1.jpg - but I have to say, it's good to see fromthat pic that Richard Gasquet still has a big smile on his face, having managed to secure himself a temporary job as Eurodisney's resident tennis pro to tide himself over during his suspension ...

Richard has been cut out of that picture, if that's him on the right in the white. :(

LOL I thought he was the one in blue, but I wonder who the one in white is.

More seriously, entrant numbers from T4Y 12 hours before the deadline are way down on last year's RG for some reason (down more than any other major team), so here's another reminder.  :whistle:

btw,not fair, myself and Dallas deserved 2nd and 3rd spot being the only ones (except tf78 of course) who picked Fed to win :thumb-down:
I was 1 point behind being 3rd and Dallas 3 points.  :whistle:

First tournament ever where I didn't pick Federer and I'm so glad he proved me wrong :)

In the end, I am glad that Fed finally won. After multiple years of losing to Rafa at French, this feels pretty exciting, doesn't it?
