Queens R1: Mahut def. [WC] Golding 6-3 6-4

An OK performance from Marathon Man. Served very well, the rest of his game was so-so.

Nice performance from the young Brit. Only 17, could have a bright future.

Golding will be very good on hard courts. Hopefully many challengers this year, and good progress next season.

Played really well did young Oliver. Look forward to watching some of his challenger matches.

Mahut.. gotta love this guy on the grass. Really, really do.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Golding played a decent match for someone of his experience and I'm sure a match like this will give him the confidence to string together a few wins at the lower-level tournaments and get himself into the top 200 by this time next year.

Mahut looks happy to be back on his favourite surface. Decent chance for him to get consecutive wins on the main tour here (plays Verdasco next) and will hopefully get a kind draw at Wimbledon to help him boost his ranking (please not Isner)...

I support Andy Murray!

Only saw bits and pieces but Golding looked pretty decent, hopefully he can make some good progress, plenty of time for him to do so. Would be nice to see Mahut have a good run here or better yet at Wimbledon.

Whoa. Golding was actor when he was child and decided to be a tennisplayer when he was 14. Very unusual.

I'm surprised how few posts there are. People seem to only follow top players. Oliver was also in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium no less.

I think he's cute and can't wait for him to get better known and go up the rankings. He isn't like many other British players and he takes it very seriously. I thought he played a great match and he has a bright future.
