Verd Good morning, Please use this space to discuss today's matches at Roland Garros. We will also be providing you with Overflow posts as needed - the first of them to be linked at the top of the current post, but not appearing on the front page. Please keep your conversations focused on the tennis - you can go off-topic after all of today's matches are finished.

Today's Order of play can be found on this link.

My personal pick of the day is the match between Fernando Gonzalez and Josselin Ouanna, who took out Marat Safin in a memorable five-setter two days ago. I'm also anticipating the Nadal-Hewitt encounter, as well as looking forward to finding out whether Andy Murray can go further than ever before at this tournament - if that's to happen, he'll need to defeat Janko Tipsarevic today. Nikolay Davydenko versus Stanislas Wawrinka could be another interesting match.

The most interesting WTA matches of the day might be the encounter between Carla Suarez Navarro, last year's quarterfinalist, and Victoria Azarenka, and the one between  Agnes Szavay and  Venus Williams. Szavay and Williams have only played each other once before, on clay in Acapulco earlier this year. It was won by Williams, but went the full three sets.

As always, enjoy today's tennis.
