It's Slam time and not without drama or intrigue. Nadal is going for title 14 and has quite the tough draw. Federer is making his third appearance this year, entering the tournament with a negative W/L record for the year. And no 2 seed Medvedev has barely won a match on clay this year, but is apparently liking the RG surface this year.
On the women's side, the favorites are, and rightfully so in my opinion, Swiatek, Barty and Sabalenka who have all been playing well in the lead-up to this event. The drama has been dominated by Osaka for refusing to do press at tournament and Andreescu for playing very little and withdrawing very much. Names to look out for are Badosa and Gauff who have been looking good going into this event.

Interesting how the draw has worked out in the mens ,oldies in top half ,rafa,novak,roger,with rublev and sinner dangerous lurkers .The "next big thing " gang of 4 Thiem,Tsitsipass,Medvedev,Zverev in the bottom half ,with Bautista a possible danger .Should be interesting ,changing of guard ?? or same old ,same old ??

Tough luck for Sinner and Rublev. There's a reason Tsitsipas shortened greatly being drawn in the same half as Medvedev who's allergic to the clay and Thiem who's allergic to winning post USO last year.

Cannot believe the prices on Andreescu outright and R1, on these.

Probs going to miss most of tomorrow's play, but should be around every day after that.

woah, unbelievable odds. How her OR price is twice as big as Osaka's is also muggery. Osaka has proven she can't play on clay, with Andreescu we don't know. And for anyone to read anything into her recent withdrawal ... Laugh

It can only be cos of injury concerns though. She's signif bigger than she was for AO when she had 0 matches in 15 months going in.

Osaka probs just attracts mug money bet as people heard of her/won 2 slams in recent history.

Badosa's outright is awful imo.

Like with that there is absolute 0% chance you don't get a much bigger price just backing her every round.

yeah. Solid against mugs, but will come up short against the big guns.

There's defo some she's hot in that price imo. Equals attracts bets, the price is just silly.

actually now that I've looked at the draw I don't think Badosa's price is a mug price. Bertens and Osaka the top seeds in her section and I rate her better than those two. Then in the section above Bencic, who she has beaten twice recently, and Andreescu are the top seeds. Semis not out of the question. But given this draw, Andreescu's big price is an even bigger mystery than before I had had a proper look at the draw.

Will be interesting how Osaka comes out. Feels like it's either going to be feast or famine.

he was asking Naomi about her play on clay, she said "It's a work in progress, I hope they more I play the better it will get". He said "Sorry, I don't understand".
