Roland Garros R1: [WC] Rufin def. Mannarino 6-2 6-3 6-2
Some people said he should not have received a WC. This is why I thought he should. I knew he had a good shot to win but I didn't know if he had the match practice at this level to make it happen since he was out injured for quite a while. But he played a really controlled, aggressive match and totally dictated proceedings throughout. Serve was on, played very good defense at times. A lot of talent as a clay courter.
Mannarino was very poor, but much of that has to do with Rufin.
10 winners, 41 errors for Mannarino. He's simply not a clay courter. He was getting outhit, then he tried hitting with more pace, which led to more errors. Also he doesn't move well on clay. He'll be happy grass season is here.
That will be the last victory of Rafa for quite some time.. With his joke mentality and pathetic game, I hope the disgusting player loses every single match next season. He's disgraceful. He should just retire. He's a joke.
