Auckland QF: Rochus def Paire 6-3, 6-7, 7-6

Brilliant match by both! Best of the year, so far!

Shame one of them has to lose it

Wow, that was great
Both have incredible volleys, Rochus also has a good pass, this match had like no unforced errors. Best Rochus has played in years, Paire is so talented.
2 3rd set breakers in a row, the road must end here though

David beats Goliath, but I rooting for Goliath in Australia. He's so much fun. Maybe I'll get tired of his antics like Monfils, but for now Paire has a new fan. So much talent for someone ranked 92.

AMAZING match. Sadly Benoit lost after he had 2 break points to go 2 breaks up in the third.
Rochus played unbeliaveble well too.

Hopefully someone puts a highlight real- it was more fun than any of the exos in Kooyang.

Rochus would have 5-10 slams by now if someone had the smarts to place him on a rack as a kid.

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.
