Interesting tournament happening right before the French Open. IT will happen May 20-22. Features 12 players:
-Federer
-Nadal
-Monfils
-Murray
-Nalbandian
-Safin
-Blake
-Haas
-Wawrinka
-Benneteau
-Clement
-Some other player

From Rogers site: The players will meet as teammates and opponents in a unique new event that will be staged on red clay in Paris providing ideal preparation for the French Open. The team competition will feature the same balls and court conditions as Roland Garros. The 12 players will be divided up into two teams of six, Guinot vs. Mary Cohr, coached by internationally renowned captains. Two best-of-three set matches a day from 1:30 p.m. onwards will commence. Each player will play once only during the three-day tournament and the two captains will challenge one another on the Friday just before the presentation of the trophy. Because the stands are nearer the courts than anywhere else, the spectators will get a close-up of the stars in competition.
Haven't found any other articles on this site about this yet so tell me if there is.

Sounds very interesting, and it's nice they didn't just pull the top 12 (hooray Safin!), sounds like a nice fun event before the French Open.

Hopefully Federer plays Nadal, great practice if he does.
