Roland Garros may only be in the round of 32 however in one section of the men's draw four unseeded players are all looking at a career opportunity.
The 2011 French Open saw a rash of upsets on Thursday as six players who were seeded in the event were shown the door.
Those included three seeds in one section of the draw as eighth seeded Jurgen Melzer fell, 20th seeded Florian Mayer fell, and the 32nd seeded Kevin Anderson fell.
What that has led to is a section of the draw where four unseeded players remain in the draw to the quarters, a rarity in Grand Slams.
Those four players are Lukasz Kubot of Poland, Alejandro Falla of Columbia, Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina, and Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic.
Of those four players Chela is by far those most accomplished having made the quarterfinals at the French Open once before and the quarterfinals at Flushing Meadows before as well.
Kubot is best known for making the fourth round of the 2010 Australian Open although he's hardly a household name for tennis fans.
Lukas Rosol is a 25 year old who doesn't even have a photo up on his IBM home page for the event, something that will probably change if he can win another match.
Alejandro Falla is Columbian left-ahdner and known on tour however he has never even made a fourth round match in any Grand Slam before.
Whoever goes through to the quarters will likely face Andy Murray in the round of 8 although the draw could be viewed as really wide open as Murray himself has never won a quarterfinal match at Roland Garros.
