Great win, Bjorn. Great great great. So happy, great job holding his nerve, and he was surely relieved at the end. This should be a major boost for him.

Bozo played really well today, hitting and serving hard, and being pretty accurate/solid in the process. He's a threat to anyone playing like that.

Re: Week 42: Orleans, France [Entry List]

Mannarino is sick and let Mahut reach the quarter. Pity for Adrian who is not so far from AO MD but good for Nico to take some free points.

Re: Week 42: Orleans, France [Entry List]

Too bad for Adrian, I guess that's why the last two weeks he's struggled in R1. But he's still very close to the top 100 and just needs one good result, so hopefully he'll be fine and get it, still a long way to go in the season to do so. Good opportunity now for Mahut to make the final.

Re: Week 42: Orleans, France [Entry List]

Anyone following the Robert match? He's losing 6-0, 3-0 and only won 4 points on his serve in the whole match so far. I can't understand how he can be that bad against a guy ranked 579 in the world. If he's injured, why doesn't he retire instead of getting humiliated?

Re: Week 42: Orleans, France [Entry List]

It's questionable whether Robert was hurt or he just sucks, because his recent results have been so poor that it's not any real surprise he struggles to win any match. If only Marc would have won yesterday, he would have a bye to the quarters at least. Hopefully there is some report on if Robert was hurt.

Anyway, Nicolas has an amazing opportunity at making the final, he needs to take it.

Top half of the draw is better on paper, Grigor should win his match, and one would assume Llodra should win his match, setting up a great SF match. Good luck to Bjorn, though!

Re: Week 42: Orleans, France [Entry List]

Unbelievable that doing Renavand, form me only success that can be seen this round. Defeat Gisquel without motivation, Robert maybe injury or maybe motivation, but this reason I tend to reject. So today Guez. H2H 6-1 for Guez, last 4 match (3 on hard, 1 on clay) win on 2 sets. I don't believe that Renavand can win. All in for me. GL
