Good morning. As always, please use this post as your initial space for discussing today's tennis matches in Paris. We'll be providing you with a series of Overflow posts as the day goes on, to try to keep the conversation flowing. Overflows will be accessed through a link at the top of the current post - no links will appear on the front page.

Today's Order of Play is here. My personal matches of the day are those between Nicolas Almagro and Ernests Gulbis, and Maria Sharapova and Nadia Petrova. Action on Court Philippe CHatrier begins with Andy Murray's second-round match against Potito Starace, with Ana Ivanovic and Venus Williams also in action, along with Marat Safin versus the Frenchman Josselin Ouanna. Dinara Safina, Gilles Simon and Rafael Nadal will play on Court Suzanne Lenglen today, where Fabrice Santoro and Christophe Rochus will also finish the entertaining match that could be the Frenchman's last appearance at Roland Garros, which was stopped last night due to bad light.

Today's weather in Paris is forecast to be dry but cloudy, with some sun breaking through.

As always, enjoy today's tennis.
