re: The Unofficial Great Great Roland Garros Thread 2021
Tennys is one and done with Joker first round
Fritz should move to the 2nd round
Fed Cilic could be good 2nd round
Droopy Dawg and Sam in first round, good thing I wont get too pissed off during the tournament
Tiafoe and Stevie 1st round may be interesting
Strange Nadal is a 3

Coco Gauff media fest will go for a week ugh
It is amazing they completely ignore Kenin story, that is what the American dream is

Looks like our favorite Coco lost in Qualies this week.

You’d think Novak is a big enough deal for him to tell Belgrade to reschedule their event and he’ll play it, but it’s stupid to do so on the week before RG.

I feel like he’s played every week for the last month+.

Just noticed Tennys draws Djokovic first round.

I would bet you he takes a set


I'd take that bet.

So, I'm an idiot and dropped $1,200 on Rafa yesterday. His draw looks insane to me. I forgot Medvedev is number 2. Djoker and Rafa in the same half. Popyrin and Gaston are not chopped liver in the first couple of rounds, but he will get through those. Sonego is kind of nasty now. Possible Sinner 4th, Rublev quarter, Djoker semi. That is a tough road.

Tsitsi should coast to the semis. I think the quarter with Zverev, Thiem, KK, RBA, Ruud, Hurkacz, and Evans is really hard.
Draw.



It's a silly arse draw. I'm annoyed that Rafa and Djoke are in the same half. I'll do a breakdown of it in the next day or two if I get the chance. The thiem quadrant is by far the weakest and most wide open.

Cilic may lose first round. It appears you haven't been paying much attention to recent form. I think Fritz will give Fed a very tough match in the third round

Here is the PDF draw. Roger got a decent draw to win a few matches. I thought he would struggle to get out of the first round. I think Fritz would beat him and that the odds would be pretty close to even. Berrettini would beat Roger 2, 2, and 2 in the fourth round if Roger gets that far.

I think Medvedev has the best route

Medvedev isn't great on clay. I think he doesn't like the footing and his flat shots are nullified by it.

Thiem is down two breaks in the fourth and probably going five. Andujar +200 right now looks good to me.

How are yall watching this?

I just bought peacock plus and its absolute shite. Theyre not even showing the 3-5 matches going on right now. Theyre just doing the typical espn bull shite talking about osaka's feelings

Should I get tennis plus?

I'm having to resort to a russian livestream.

Very strange on the coverage. Tennis Channel has it going today. But, they weren't showing the Thiem match. So, NBC must have the rights to Chatrier. That would be fine, but there is no NBC coverage today. Just Peacock streaming from 12-3 eastern, I think. Bally's Sports, which used to be Fox Sports, seemingly has some rights. They are showing Ruusuvuori and McDonald.

Now Zverev is down 2 sets, that quarter is about to be a mess.

Tennis Channel Plus gets you every match on tour, correct? That might be worth it. It's clear the major networks are going away from tennis and/or pushing their streaming services. And Tennis Channel kind of sucks with how they pick which matches to show.

Droopy Dawg won in straights. I swear this man is a riddle inside of an enigma wrapped in a curse

Tiafoe may need therapy after today

Sonego goes out in straight sets first round, and Sinner had to come back to win in five sets.

re: The Unofficial Great Great Roland Garros Thread 2021
You would think big guys shouldn't be good on clay because the surface neutralizes their serve and they typically don't move well on it. But, Isner and Opelka aren't bad. I think they can handle the spin and their serves are so huge that they are some of the only guys that can get free points out there on it. In Isner's case, he probably likes the extra time on return.
