Roland Garros R1: Benneteau def. Machado 4-6 6-1 6-2 6-0

This match was all about Julien. First set, he played poorly and Machado was pretty inspired. As soon as Julien started playing well this was not a contest. Rui has nothing in his game to beat good form high level players on anything outside of a once in a blue moon basis. He also didn't look all the way there physically and mentally.

Julien played a good final three sets, he could be a dangerous player going forward.

I only watched the last set, Benneteau was on fire! Will be a great match against Ferrer

Benneteau is in poor form. Machado outplayed him until he lost his legs and his brain, which happens more often than not and it's the main reason he's a journeyman.

That's the point, I think Benneteau can definitely challenge Ferrer should be bring a good level on court.

Good for Benneteau. I like his game...but I don't think he can beat Ferrer, without some help from Ferrer.

Power in my time.

Very good form after Prague, Bordeaux, Nice battlefields for Benneteau but next match is the last on RG this year.

Good response from Benny after the first set...but he'll lose fairly easily to Ferrer I think
