LIVE Roland Garros' Draw

http://www.rolandgarros.com/fr_FR/ne...551803381.html

Le tirage au sort en direct !
Par Guillaume Baraise
jeudi 25 mai 2006
Le tirage au sort des Internationaux de France innove cette année : il sera effectué en partie de manière informatique. Vous pourrez le suivre en direct, ce vendredi à partir de 11h30, sur le site officiel. A ne pas manquer !

>>>> CLIQUEZ ICI (à partir de vendredi 11h00)

Le destin d'un joueur à Roland-Garros est souvent lié à celui du tirage au sort. Ce vendredi, à 11h30 au Tenniseum, le musée du tennis, ce moment-clé du tournoi sera donc, comme d'habitude, au centre de toutes les attentions. Favoris, outsiders, tous seront curieux de connaître l'identité de leurs premiers adversaires. Certains optimistes auront même l'envie de regarder un peu plus loin dans le tableau…

Effectué depuis toujours de façon manuelle, ce tirage sera, pour la première fois aux Internationaux de France, réalisé - en partie - de manière informatique. Plus condensé dans le temps (40 minutes environ), l'événement gagnera en lisibilité, en dynamisme, tout en offrant un côté plus spectaculaire.

Elément très important également, il pourra être suivi en direct sur le site www.rolandgarros.com par les internautes du monde entier.

Dans un premier temps, sera effectué le tirage au sort du simple dames. Les non têtes de série seront d'abord placées dans le tableau de façon électronique, avant que ne soit tiré au sort manuellement les trente-deux têtes de série. Rappelons que la tête de série n°1 du tournoi sera Amélie Mauresmo, la n°2 Kim Clijsters, tandis que la tenante du titre, Justine Henin-Hardenne, sera n°5. Les têtes de série sont désignées dans l'ordre du classement mondial paru le 21 mai.

Dans la foulée, le tirage du tableau du simple messieurs sera effectué selon le même procédé. Roger Federer et Rafael Nadal ont logiquement hérité des dossards n°1 et n°2. A noter que parmi les non têtes de série figurant dans ce tournoi masculin, il y aura quelques noms à éviter pour les têtes d'affiche, comme ceux de Marat Safin, Richard Gasquet ou les spécialistes de la terre battue, Nicolas Almagro et Juan Ignacio Chela. Quelques chocs pourraient donc animer les premiers tours…

Draw can be followed live on the official website Friday after 11.00 CET.

Merci Amélie!

Follow the draw live!By Guillaume Baraise
Thursday, May 25, 2006In a first for the tournament, the draw for this year's French Open will partly be done by computer. Don't miss it - live on Friday from 11:30 CET, on the official site.

>>>> CLICK HERE (not before Friday from 11:30 CET)

Fate, and of course the draw, can often play a major part in deciding who wins French Open. This Friday at 11:30 CET, all eyes will be at the Tenniseum, as the Roland Garros tennis museum is called, when the draw will take place. Favourites and outsiders alike will all be dying to know who they will be facing in the first round - and the big names of course will already be looking a little further.

The draw has traditionally been done by hand, but this year, in a first for the tournament, it will partly be done on computer. This will reduce the time required to around 40 minutes, making the draw more dynamic, exciting and fan-friendly, particularly for the tennis lovers following it live around the world on www.rolandgarros.com.

The women's singles will be drawn first, with unseeded players entered electronically into the system, before the 32 seeds are drawn by hand. Names to look out for include Amélie Mauresmo (number 1 seed), Kim Clijsters (2) and last year's winner Justine Henin-Hardenne (5). The seeds have been decided according to the world rankings as of 21 May.

The men's draw will be made in the same way straight afterwards, with Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal seeded one and two respectively. All 32 seeded players will be looking to avoid some of the big names lurking outside the 32 in the first round - the likes of Marat Safin, Richard Gasquet and clay-court specialists Nicolas Almagro and Juan Ignacio Chela would be more than a handful for any opponent at any stage. Depending on the draw, they could well provide some first round fireworks.

Wow, thanks for the info suzie!


A few days ago I found this on the Roland Garros website:

'The draw for the tournament has been given a major face-lift. As with the Australian Open and the US Open, the draw will be made electronically rather than manually. Scheduled for Friday 26 May at 11:30am (CET) in the Roland Garros Tenniseum, proceedings will begin with an electronic draw of the non-seeded players before a famous face pulls out the 32 seeds.'


Perhaps the proceedings start at 11.00am with the electronic draw and maybe from 11.30am (CET) they'll show the 'famous faces' pulling out the names of the seeds and placing them in the draw....


Amélie Mauresmo

2003 - Fed Cup Champion!!

2004 - WTA Ranked Number One!!

2005 - YEC Champion!!

2006 - Australian Open Grand Slam Champion!!


2006 Wimbledon Champion!!
and No.1 again!!

Unless I'm missing something, it says the draw will take place at 11:30 AM, so I would think it'll be live.

For us on the east coast, it's 5:30 AM
