Bonjour, veterans and rookies, and welcome to Day 1 of the Men’s Roland Garros Suicide Pool – 2010 edition.

Important Rule: A Sunday pick is mandatory. You will have to survive three days of first round picks - Sunday, Monday and Tuesday!

You will be making one pick EACH DAY of the men’s event (NOT one each round), and once you use a player, you can never use him again. There will be a “picks and results thread” posted after the day 1 thread is closed so you can check the choices you have already made.

It is very important you follow the schedule of play for the day posted below. Since the first round is spread over three days, only a portion of the draw plays each day.

Post your Day 1 pick by replying IN THIS THREAD. Your pick must be in before the start of play for the day in Paris, rain or shine. For day 1, that’s Sunday, May 23, 2010, 11:00 AM in PARIS. For those in the US, that is Sunday 5:00 AM EST. Please do not be late, as we hate making those hard decisions, but we will. This thread will be locked at the deadline, so please don't wait until the last minute or you may find it locked when you hit "post."

If you change your mind after you make your pick, and before the deadline, please make a second post advising us of your change - PLEASE DO NOT make your change in your original post, as we often go through the posts before closing to begin the task of updating the picks and results, and we might miss a change if you edit your original pick.

Since the object of the game is to pick a player that you are sure is going to win on that day, should your player withdraw, he obviously cannot win his match. You do not get a substitute (lucky loser) - you have chosen a player, not a spot in the draw. You might want to scout your player and make sure there is not a known injury or illness issue.

Best of luck and thanks for joining us.

Day 1 consists of only the following 16 matches from the top half of the men's draw:

J Tipsarevic (SRB) vs A Falla (COL)
N Massu (CHI) vs F Fognini (ITA)
(10) M Cilic (CRO) vs R Mello (BRA)
J Bennetteau (FRA) vs (23) E Gulbis (LAT)
(29) A Montañes (ESP) vs (Q) S Galvani (ITA)
S Robert (FRA) vs (Q) T Kamke (GER)
(W) L Recourdec (FRA) vs (5) R Soderling (SWE)
JI Chela (ARG) vs (W) R Sweeting (USA)
(Q) S Devvarman (IND) vs M Chiudinelli (SUI)
(W) E Roger-Vasselin (FRA) vs K Anderson (RSA)
(11) M Youzhny (RUS) vs M Przysiezny (POL)
(Q) M Yani (USA) vs L Lacko (SVK)
(32) G Garcia-Lopez (ESP) vs R Schuettler (GER)
(Q) O Patience (FRA) vs T De Bakker (NED)
(W) J Ouanna (FRA) vs L Kubot (POL)
D Brands (GER) vs (8) JW Tsonga (FRA)

As mon ami Roland Garros, wise in the ways of clay, slipped into a coma after a heavy night of absinthe with white wine chasers, he seemed to be muttering something like "choisissezcilic...choisissezcilic", and since I can never resist voting for a palindrome, I am taking his advice:
Marin CILIC!
