Let's have a round of applause for Julien Benneteau

It was obvious he'll lose that match, but he put up a great fight in spite of having full set of matches in Casablanca plus long grueling encounters here in Paris. He still managed to produce fantastic winners and refused to bend over for Federer. Richie, take a lesson from our compatriot

Well done

You play only as good, as your opponent lets you to

Re: Let's have a round of applause for Julien Benneteau

Good performance from him but you could expect it, he had been in a 5-setter and when he came through that I guess he was more inspired and motivated. Hopefully he'll start pushing up more.
As for Verdasco, oh dear me... He took is anal.

Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Re: Let's have a round of applause for Julien Benneteau

The only reason it wasn't an embarrassing blowout is because Federer was awful.

No applause from me.

Federer / Youzhny / Ancic / Raonic / Dancevic

Applause for doing his job and trying to win the match?

Well okay but - isn't that what opponents are supposed to do? Am I missing something?

Nadal has defeated Almagro twice? Not "clownish" at all.
