It's a big day at Roland Garros on Thursday, with lots of the top tips in action—Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Maria Sharapova, for starters. Will they coast through, or will there be any surprises?

Well, don't expect Nadal to slip up against compatriot Pablo Andujar, and Murray should be okay against Simone Bolelli.

Sharapova, though, could be pushed by France's Caroline Garcia. They're up third on Philippe Chatrier, so plenty of time for the No. 7 seed to fret about needing to recover her form.
