The Eye's Roland Garros - The Dirt Files Day 1

Well day 1 starts in a few hours time and I will have some updates news and other various posts as the tournament progresses.So I guess the major news is that it will not be a Djokovic and Nadal final, Nadal with his time spent out due to injury was seeded 4th,the French powers that be that could of seeded Rafa higher elected to go with the current rankings. The player with the biggest smile after the draw which landed both the Djoker and Nadal in the same half was the GOAT Rodger Federer.
For those that are not familiar with the term GOAT it stands for Greatest Of All Time.Now for those that did not know Rodger has now joined Twitter .So Twitter followers Rodger has tweeted that Fans can choose what colour bandana he wears for his first match.Yes you could choose White or Violet!

 Lets just hope readers Rodger is not wearing Red after the match as Rodger and his opponent features in one of my Matches of the Day
His opponent is Spanish Player Pablo Carreno-Busta.He is the best qualifier and started the year at 654 and is now around 133.He has won 7 out of 8 futures and obviously can play on clay.This will not be a walk in the park for Federer and he cannot be affording to tweet too many times during the match.Oh by the way I think he will be wearing Violet, I just checked the poll! The other match up is The little Aussie Battler Lleyton Hewitt up against the Local and 15th seed Giles Simon.Sadly being an Australian and knowing the battles Hewitt has fought Simon will be burying Hewitt in the Red Clay and probably will mark his last match here at Roland Garros.The dim light at the end of a dark tunnel is Simon is in the worst form of his career.Whilst on the Aussies Marinko Matosevic will also be joining Hewitt and on the plane( he plays Ferrer),I want to say to no where but it will be to the Grass courts and they will have plenty of time to practice before Wimbledon starts.James Duckworth another Aussie has come through qualifying and has the best but slim chance to make it to the second round.

THE YOUNG GUNS : Who are the next grandslam winners? Alas my opinion is whilst Nadal,Djoker,Murray and Federer are playing I don't see any of these pretenders holding the Cup.Young Gun 1 playing today is 14th Seed Milos Raonic from Canada. I don't think he can win this tournament ,His mobility on Clay is a huge question and he will be found out in this area. He plays Veteran Xavier Malisse in a good match up also on Day 1. Raonic is 23. Just an Interesting stat is that World No 1s such as Fed,Sampras,Nadal,McEnroe have all had their best year at around 24 or 25.This maybe a good gauge for players .I would class Busta in the Young Guns category also so readers keep an eye on this guy.I will add more as they play , for me that's it for today in this catergory no other worthy entries playing on Day 1.

LOVE 30 - Paris and Love what a couple.So everyone says that Serena Williams and coach Patrick Mourataglou are more than just player and coach, I have to say that Serena starts Favourite and my Pick for the title.I have never seen Serena look fitter and she wont be losing first round today.In fact Serena has a great draw with Agnieszka Radwanska seeded to meet Serena in the Semi's.She does have Caroline Wozniacki in her quarter but since her and Rory have been an item there has not been too much major success on the court. Another Victoria Azarenka and in her Corner REDFOO will be screaming her way through matches ..would hate to have the hotel room next to them!The other screamer Maria Sharapova complete the top 4 super couples with player Grigor Dimitrov , who has been suffering with cramps recently and yes I mean the leg ones! So which one of these 4 couples will make it to the final.Will they be overpowered by love, can they put lust to the back-burner for the two weeks.
