Ummm, on second thought ...

Well, she got through it at least.

That sure was a tough opener for Maria Sharapova, who's only my pick to win the whole tournament!

I'm gonna chalk it up to the blustery conditions and her opponent playing solid as opposed to my already-shaky pick not really being ready to win the French. She's gonna have to shore it up, though. But at least she gets to play another day.

And I'm still sticking by my earlier call!

Hey Van

just wanted to say how much I'm enjoying your posts on the French Open - you're on fire at the moment.

And thanks for the comments on Murray. Expectations are so high over here about what Murray may achieve in the game, so I have to remind myself he's only just 21 and we wont see the best of him for probably a year or two.

So a great result today but we shouldn't be too hard on him if falls to Almagro.

Keep up the good work.
