2019 Roland Garros of France Main Draw Ceremony LIVE Discussion
 
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D4QxLjYWAAAO8vl.jpg

I remember that former GOAT Martina HINGIS would visit Notre Dame cathedral (RIP) on the eve of the Roland Garros draw in order to run rosary beads between her fingers and pray for a fortunate draw :surprise:

well now we are less than 24 hours away from the fates of our favorites being decided:

Draw Ceremony: Thursday, 23 May at 7:00pm at “l’Orangerie” in the Botanic Garden

at this time tomorrow, this thread will transform into a live discussion thread of the MD Ceremony (hopefully it will be streamed again)

until then, let's imagine ourselves in Notre Dame, and list some match ups that we would like to see the draw throw down ... here are mine:

ZHENG v TATISHVILLI :nerd:
ZHANG v [WC] JANICJEVIC
[Q] X WANG v [22] ANDREESCU
MLADENOVIC v [4] BERTENS :wavey:
[16] Q WANG v BOUCHARD :inlove:
V WILLIAMS v [13] WOZNIACKI >:)
[Q] XU v [WC] ALBIE
Y WANG v [WC] PARRY

[11] S WILLIAMS vs [8] BARTY 4R :p

We're going to have another Williams vs Williams in the early rounds. It's the trend nowadays.

I’d like to see Kerber vs. Andreescu early on and see Angie’s reaction when Bianca crushes her career slam dream for this season 😉

I'd love SAISAI to draw Serena so we can admire her claycourt expertise on the biggest stage. She's already won the other RG this year so she'd be the favourite coming in, no? :oh:

PovaBmachY May 22nd, 2019 06:42 PM

Halep vs Ostapenko 🤭

I hope it happens in every tournament they play. Maybe then, when both of the them are in danger of dropping from top50, we are going to see something that doesn't scream "training session"?
If not Serena-Venus, then maybe Serena-Mladenovic?
Also Halep - Mladenovic/Vondrousova/Ostapenko would be interesting.
Azarenka - Cibulkova/Sabalenka?

it depends on the draw ... if any of the French girls draw a top SEED, that will be the match ... if not, then it will be MLADENOVIC, CORNET or GARCIA :shrug:

is this the first year that they do the FO draw on Thursday? Historically it didn't come out until like 1:30pm on Friday afternoon (very, very late considering the Sunday start).

Garcia is in Strasbourg. I bet on Kiki unless Ferro or another one draw Serena or other top.

Can't wait to open the obligatory will Svitolina finally reach a grand slam SF thread!

Reckon she’s got a good chance this year, no pressure!

I will love that.

Bertens vs Anisimova
Serena vs Vondrousova

Why does everyone want Simona has a hard confrontation?
