Sorry for the short notice but it's almost time for the second leg of the FT tennis comps with the beginning of the French Open at Roland Garros (tomorrow no less!). Will Dizart and BxBarracuda defend their men's and women's titles, respectively, or will we see a new face atop the podium?

Come one, come all, and tip your way through the French!

Tips must be in by commencement of the second round.

Scoring will be the same as the one used for Wimbledon, the US Open, and the Australian Open:

5 pts x 1 : picking the winner.
3 pts x 2 : picking a semi-final winner (picking a finalist).
2 pts x 4 : picking a quarter-final winner (picking a semi-finalist).
1 pts x 8 : picking a quarter-finalist.

Additionally, sign up and you will get bonus points for the seeding of your correct picks. You may also get these bonus points if you don't sign up, but, banter is so much more rewarding than points.

Will have another go at this, not expecting much as clay court knowledge is something I lack.

You both still have Kuznetsova along with ozzz.

I wasn't bold enough to pick her back to back, but she earned you and me the top podium spots in the Australian Open.

If she makes the Quarters for the 2nd major in a row while being unranked that will be something else and it's quite possible too.


Edit to add: Svetlana did it again, that puts ozzz, gtho and srini in the drivers seat on the Women's side now, great picks.
