Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray all got their matches done on a pair of clear days in Paris and are now sitting comfortably in the second round.
The rain which marred Tuesday may have an impact on fourth-seeded Novak Djokovic, whose opening match against Nicolas Lapentti was hit by the weather.
For Federer, tournament scheduling is the least of his worries as he works to win his first-ever French Open.
In fact, even the tennis hero doesn't always get his wish when he asks for a match slot.
"I asked for Sunday, but Monday and Tuesday would have been OK," he said after advancing into the second round. "Wednesday, as well.
"We can go through the whole week if you want to. What counts is that in any case, you have to win seven matches. Never mind who you're going to play against and the type of weather you have - what you have to do is end this race and win the battle."
Multi-lingual interviews all part of the job for Federer.
|1. Djokovic||12 500 pts|
|2. Murray||8 750 pts|
|3. Federer||8 670 pts|
|4. Ferrer||6 970 pts|
|5. Nadal||6 385 pts|
