    The FOSP Loser's Lounge is Open For Business

    What's a Slam without a Suicide Pool? And what's a suicide pool without our legendary Loser's Lounge? For the 9th year, our Roland Garros Loser's Lounge is now officially open for business.

    Janko or Caro pull another first round stunner? Confuse your Mayers or Pliskovas? Find yourself getting Safarova'd, Malisse'd or Krumm'd? Well, here's the place for you.

    Losers Lounge Lingo - if you lose in one of the two games (mens or ladies) you are what we call here at TAT a "half cheeker". Once you've lost in both games you are fully cheeked. And if history is any indicator, we'll have some full cheekers here beginning Day 1. This game is a LOT harder than it looks.

    So pick out a spot, make yourself comfortable, pick out a favorite song on our Jukebox From Hell, or simply say something snotty about a player. It's a long two weeks from now til the end of the French, and if history is an accurate indicator, some of us are going to be spending an awful lot of time in here.

    Since this is the FO lounge, will Tati be making an appearance?

    A French Open without Tati? Why, that would be like a Maid/JJ match without a medical time out!

    I sign in early to get a drink or two. Won't be able to participate this time as I leave for a short vacation (6 days) next Thursday and will not be taking my computer with me. Have fun and I'll be back for Wimbledon!

    No pick from the start - as safe a choice as most other options.

    The stunner would be if Caro actually won!

    unfortunately, that is the case, especially against Robson.

    either way, glad to see the lounge is open again, but i hope i won't be back here for at least a week!

    Nadia Petrova has done some good business for the Lounge. Ton of us coming here. No more women's SP for me.

    Klaywein, I'm here right on your heels....Petrova done me wrong!! A bottle of Bordeaux for me. GH (who still expects to be a stand-out on the men's SP and YCWJ....as if!?)

    Yes, you see that large contingent in the corner? That's the Petrova party. I wonder if you would be so kind as to deliver them an assortment of your finest vodkas?

    Funkstar, Thanks for the vodka....can I mix it with my Bordeaux? I'll try anything just now. GH

    Simple Simon almost sent me here on my very first pick ever. He was down two sets to none and had never come back from two sets down in his career. Then he wins the next two sets and is up 5-0 in the fifth before proceeding to lose the next 5 straight games. But he came through in the end so I am just a visitor here... for now.
