Bonjour et Bienvenue -- Welcome to Roland Garros!
Today on the Lucky Letcord we say bonjour from Court Simonne-Mathieu, the gorgeous new showcourt on the far east side of the Roland Garros grounds. Chris Oddo perches in the rafters as he watches Belinda Bencic and Magdalena Rybarikova practice. And he talks you through the lineup for Day 1 as well as the beauty of the court from which he conducts the podcast. We also hear from Garbine Muguruza and Madison Keys, two players who aren't getting a whole lot of consideration ahead of the tournament but two players who nevertheless have a shot to win the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen. We talk with great excitement about the possibilities of a Djokovic and Nadal clash of the titans in Paris, as well as Roger Federer's first appearance since 2015 at Roland Garros.
