No-one seems to know where saul is. And we won't know the answer to your second question until Sunday's order of play comes out. I don't think there is any set pattern for the order in which the French Open draw begins. Albeit the champion has opened on Monday for at least 5 years, but I don't think this is set in stone like it is at Wimbledon.

The men's defending champion opens the tournament on Sunday, the women's defending champion starts on the monday IIRC.

The first part of this definitely isn't true (unless it's a new thing). Nadal hasn't played on Sunday ever as far as I know.

Didn't like Li Na in the quarter, but as said before she is up and down. On a good day she is very dangerous. And now i think Vika got players just outside the seeding in the first round 3 tournaments in a row.

But i think we at least will see the two best players in the tournament in the final here, unlike the Olympics and Wimbledon.

Cue Serena losing early and then the entire top half is wide open .

I think I mixed it up with another slam.... I know this tradition is true but for what slam? Anyway sorry.

I have seen on Twitter that the top half started on sunday and monday.

I just thought about that after i clicked submit. How is Vesnina on clay btw? It seems like a first round she needs to focus on. (Trying to forget the first round last year still).

This tradition is at Wimbledon. Mens champions opens centre court proceedings on Monday and Ladies champion opens centre court proceedings on Tuesday.

Anyway Vika will probably start on Tuesday now.

Has won 2, lost 4 on clay this year. I don't envision Vika having any problems.

It's not a bad draw, but it's not great. She'll have to play really well to make the semis.

victoria mamarenka
lindsay mamaport
madison keys l johanna konta l maria sharapova l saint karolina pliskova l ana konjuh l naomi osaka l oceane dodin
2016 sucks more than your favorite

Hoping for a QF with this draw. Everything else would be a bonus for me.

Just so you know: I'm better than you because my fave is better than your fave. Your fave is a bitch and a shrieking BBB. Or was it pusher? Who cares. She's a classless brat anyway. But don't you dare insult my fave, idiot.

No Vika on Sunday: Sunday matches @ Roland Garros

Now for either Monday or Tuesday.
