Haas is ill ffs.

Why would he pull out of a tournament in his home country minutes before the match?

Coz he didn't feel up to it.

Cakewalk for most. Rafa has all the youngsters, Djokovic has Dimitrov, Federer has a shittable draw and Berdych has Monfils and Gulbis in R1 and 2 alone.

I'm still going with Djokovic. He's far less likely to suffer an early upset in a five set match, and after the way he dealt with Nadal in Monte Carlo (a tournament Nadal has dominated as long as he has Roland Garros) I would fancy Novak if they meet. I'll be amazed if they are in the same section though.

The cynic in me feels sure that it'll be Federer/Nadal and Djokovic/Ferrer just to allow the Nadal/Djokovic final to happen. Of course if the draw is truly random then that might not happen.

Something tells me the semi's line up will be Ferrer/Djokovic  and Federer/Nadal. I feel sure the organisers will be keen to have a Djokovic/Nadal final.

Anyone (apart from PseudoFed: "Roland knows which side his croissant is buttered ") still thinking the draw is fixed?

Simon Cambers ‏@scambers73
Excellent draw for @laurarobson5 v @CaroWozniacki - Robson will be able to dictate rallies and Wozniacki 1-5 on clay this year

Heather Watson to play Stefanie Voegele in R1 in Paris. Elena Baltacha plays Marina Erakovic.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Well Federer must be giving a very golden handshake to have got such an easy draw.

Federer's draw is utterly laughable. What did I say? I predicted Simon-Tipsarevic-Ferrer, and he got Simon-Tsonga-Ferrer. Close enough, for all the difference it makes. Cakewalk of a draw all the way to the final where he'll be crushed by Rafa or Nole in straight sets.

Haas pulled out of Dusseldorf with the flu yesterday. Ominous.
I suspect he's most likely just saving himself for the French. Playing Dusseldorf was always a strange decision.

I changed my tune after Murray withdrew. And I was right, in respect to which half the top 4 will be in.

Watch Federer draw Simon in his 1/8th, Tipsarevic in his quarter and Ferrer in his half.

Draws are actually predictable these days, and I mean that in the literal sense.

I have absolutely no doubt there is fixing involved, with the seeds certainly.
