RG R1: Olivier Rochus d. Benoit Paire 3-6 7-6(4) 6-4 7-5

Great atmosphere, cool match to watch. Some great points between those two.

Paire showed he can be a good prospect and as for Ollie, gotta love this little warrior.

Paire served for the 4th set, but good work from him making the main draw and playing a good match against a tough campaigner.

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".

Watched a bit of this before the stream cut out. Paire is an interesting player, but his shot selection seemed to be really terrible at times.

Benoit really was the better player the first two sets, but Olli just hung in there and fought hard and keep the pressure on. Paire got tired and couldn't keep his level consistent and that was enough for Olli to win.

Benoit can be a very good player once he improves the forehand, conditioning, movement, shot selection and consistency. Congrats to Olivier!

If someone good coaches this Benoit kid, he will soon eat the likes of Gasquets and Monfils of France for breakfast

I didn't know that Paire has such a bad volley. The rest of his game looks good though.
