Another strange match.

I have seen many idiots since i started following tennis.
But never one like Soderling.

Julien, very smart match

Is Soderling injured or something? I think he served for the 2nd set and lost 12 straight games...unbelievable

What happened to Robin? Did he implode?

I like a lot of players.

Strange match but you have to give some credit to Benneteau.
He played awesome from the end of the third set to the end of the match.
Well done Benneteau
I'm overall very proud of the french players in this FO: they are giving everything and playing at their potential if not above.
A certain french player who was not involved in this FO could learn a few thing from them

mind boggling this Soderling.

& Benneteau is the 5th French to advance, that's quite something. Congrats.

lol dark horse, he had a good run but this guy does not have the consistency and mental strenght to make a really long run in roland garros but he should have better chances for the next two slams.

Soderling should've won this match considering his form coming into this, gives Fed an easier path to the final.

I hate the word but that was a choke from Sodo in the 2nd set TB after having been impressive before.

Wonder what happened that made him that crazy with the referee at the beginning of the third ?

Anyway very solid and smart match from Benneteau and congrats to him.

Yeah he was injured. Brain cramps. I think he asked for a PTO (Psychological Time Out) somewhere during the 4th set.

I was expecting this meltdown versus Monaco, who's a much better player.

Wasn't expecting at this point though.

After Soderling lost a set to Mayer at the AO being 2 sets up, I'm used to just about anything

Re: RG R3: Benneteau def. Soderling 1-6, 7-6, 6-0, 6-1

The Toad had this in control, then fails to serve it out and plays in the pink dress.

Another disappointing show in a GS for Toad.

Benneteau will get some good ranking points and take his straight set beating against Fed.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
