Re: Casablanca SF: Benneteau d Calleri 1-6 6-1 6-3

Calleri is a very unstable player, hits the ball too hard and goes for too much on the backhand.

If his A -game hitting winners on lines isnt working he has no plan-B to revert too, very limited in his tennis skills.

He simply handed the W and the mental edge to julien in that second set.

Benny served well in the final set after arguing with the atp supervisor about the state of the balls for about ten minutes, i think this distracted gordo a tad.

Funny match.

Benneteau was pissed off with the balls and called the supervisor to the court. Bernades wasn't too thrilled.

The Moroccans were jeering him, this started at the start of the 3rd set.

Calleri was like what the fuck is going on here.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

At one point after Benneteau blasted some balls out of the stadium, I thought he was in danger of being defaulted when the supervisor was called. Not quite sure what happened.

In the second set Calleri played absolutely awful, almost every point was a wild miss by him, and it was not much better in the third set.
