Open 13 Reports

I will be there for my home tournament, as every year for the past 10 years.
I will attend the tournament from tomorrow up to friday for quarterfinals day.
I will post reports every evening when back from the tournament.
Do not hesitate to post requests and I will have a look at the matches you're the most interested in. (even if my faves will pass first, of course )
If you're lucky enough, I'll find someone to lend me a good camera.

Re: Open 13 Reports

I would say ERV vs Gicquel. The score in the last two sets in tough for Marco and as his season is tough would be cool to have your report about his game.

Well, the first set won by Gicquel was just about Roger-Vasselin doing absolutely nothing but awful mistakes. Several overheads landing in the net and poor serves in general. As soon as Gicquel won the first set, Edouard started to be more agressive and let no chances to Marc, who on the contrary played worse and worse after each game. His serve especially was quite poor, especially his first serve that he was no longer pushing. He didn't even seem to bother losing that match and even joked around with Edouard after they shook hands. I think he might have been too tired from the trip to Quimper, Bretagne, in the night, since he played there at the Challenger on Friday afternoon.

Not too much to say about that one actually. Trevisan retired being 0-6 2-3 down after one of the worst displays I've ever seen in a professional tournament he didn't seem to have any major problems physicly speaking, no straps, no bandages, no obvious injuries on site... Trevisan is a very muscular guy who has this unbearable habit to ask for 5 balls before each and every serve that + the absolutely horrendous ballboys, and no wonder each of the Italian's service game lasted aaaaages, just to get broken anyway in the end Sousa is a very thin tall young-looking player, hitting as hard as he possibly can, and yelling "C'MON" after each and every point His serve is quite tremendous though and his running forehand is impressive too.



I'm heading back to the tournament now after a quick lunch at home after Roger-Vasselin's win

Re: Open 13 Reports

How was Ryderstedt's matches? Plenty of aces from Michael, I guess.

Well, yeah, his serve is amazing. He generally looks like a mini-Soderling I have to say even in the attitude and since he wears the same clothes, it's quite disturbing. His forehand is quite weird with a ridiculously wide swing à la Mayer his backhand though is absolutely beautiful, especially when down the line. I have to admit that he's been helped a lot by Niland's inconsistency and numerous double faults. He just missed some key opportunities today against Sidorenko but he plays much better than his ranking says.

Today, I have reports for : Bemelmans/Schukin, Sidorenko/Ryderstedt, Jouan/Struff, Roger-Vasselin/Struff.

Just ask what you want to hear about.

Re: Open 13 Reports

^ well, he's lucky to be in the final qualifying round to be honest. He played horrible today against Ryderstedt. It was most of the time a battle of servers, especially considering Ryderstedt's bomb in first serve. From the baseline, he was overpowered by the Swede, and above all, could not move around the left-handed opponent's backhand which is just amazing. Alexandre was a little bit slow too, and had this bitchy attitude, throwing rackets and arguing with everyone, including some poor ballboys! In the deciding tie-break, he got some luck with two netcalls and a double fault from Ryderstedt. He celebrated the win moaning and complaining, talking to the chair umpire for a good two minutes.
Considering Roger-Vasselin's form today, I would say that Sidorenko's chances are not in his favors if he plays as he did today and yesterday.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to acceed to any of the practise courts.
The only glimpse to the players out of the match courts are when they walk from the locker room to the cars outside the stadium. I've seen Arnaud Clément, Nicolas Mahut and Julien Benneteau today, taking time to sign autographs.
