Howdy, everyone. I'm on my way to the farm in game-rich Andes shortly, but I wanted to give you all a fresh place to chat, and to pass on the details (below) of the Suicide Pool that has so often been a part of the Grand Slam experience for many of you. Special thanks to Mariya Konolova (as always!) for providing this information. Have a great weekend, I'll be back on Sunday - if not before. . .
Whether you have been dreaming of drinking your sorrows away in the Loser's Lounge while throwing darts at your favorite player's photo since the Aussie or never had the pleasure of putting all your imaginary medal chances on the likes of beacons of stability like Julien Bennetteau or Lucie Safarova, we look forward to hosting you in the French Open Suicide Pool '12 at TalkAboutTennis.com.
In addition to enduring pride and a fake medal, this fortnight, winning the SP gets you a Roland Garros Swatch, generously provided by our collective friend Jon Wertheim!
