WWW Roland Garros R1: Phau vs [WC] Mathieu

Bjorn has not won a GS MD match since 2006 USO, but if he were to win one, this is a great opportunity for him. PHM hasn't played a five set match since USO 2010. PHM says clay is tough on his knees physically, and with the lack of 5-set matches in so long, he may not be ready for this sort of match. Bjorn isn't a great claycourter, which makes this match unpredictable. Hopefully Bjorn takes it, he's defending 35 points here and needs the points.

Phau started the year well but was disappointing last months

Mathieu seems to get better and is used to being ultra-motivated by Roland-Garros.

I will say Paulo Mathieu in 4.

Will be praying for PHM to take this one.

If this was the best of three sets match, PHM should win. But I'm not sure if he can last more than three sets thesedays. So, if it goes to distance (four sets or more) the winner is Phau.

PHM in 5 sets, he will lose some sets due to lack of GS rhytm.

If it goes five, Bjorn will definitely win the match.
