RG R3 : Hanescu def. Simon 6-4 6-4 6-2
Lurch Hanescu gets revenge on Simon for beating him in Bucharest, by returning the favour in Paris.
Very solid from Hanescu, served well, kept good length and used some good touch as well. Had a poor break conversion, but was able to get it done eventually.
Simon at *2-4 in the 3rd set serving and break point down, called for the trainer, he tried to slide, but got stuck in the court.
“ 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
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
