Petzschner had 54 4015* in the first set, but lost it completely and was down 57 *02.

Such a shame to see him out, but at least Darcis is also an entertaining player to watch. Would have loved Picasso - Monfils, but it wasn't to be.

Darcis' first ever Grand Slam 3rd round! Pretty surprising for someone with two ATP titles.

Picasso just resting up for Wimbledon

Nah, Darcis is a good player on the clay but a good performance from him this year in Paris. Could challenge Monfils

Picasso is very inconsistent. Not a shock result really. It's a good win and great tournament for Steve overall but i think that he has no chance against Monfils.

Re: RG R2: Steve Darcis routines Philipp Petzschner 7-5, 6-4, 6-4

Steve is such a great talent. His movement really bothered Picasso today, he served well for the most part, hit nice passing shots, and Steve really took Picasso's game away by doing similar things Picasso does, but better. He was effective at the net, was authoritative and consistent from the baseline, and the difference of quality from the backhand side really showed itself in the match.

I really think he may have a shot v Gael, but even if he does lose that match, it's been a great event for him and should give him a lot of confidence going forward.

Unnecessary loss, as he basically had double match point in the first set. What makes it worse is that he had a relatively easy third round opponent. That means Petzschner will remain the most underranked player in the top 100.
