Roland Garros R1: [Q] Schwank def. Karlovic 6-4 6-0 6-3

Very happy Edu won here, but Ivo is not fully fit, obviously, with a shoulder issue. Good that Edu took advantage. He also needs to be Flo Mayer in R2, as that is extremely winnable.

Schwank bagelling Karlovic just seems impossible.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Karlovic is injured on his shoulder. Saw him last week in Dusseldorf and he could not serve, he could not hit the ball with power and he was only few minutes on court before quit practice. Was expected thing today.

Injured, Ivo played just to collect the 1r money. Life in the US is expensive, anything you can get is welcomed.

Ivo shouldn't have played. Spare himself for probably his last grass season.
But glad for Schwank, hope he can take Mayer out.

From Karlo,

I came, I saw, I iced my shoulder, I ate croissant, I called travel agency.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Re: RG R1: Schwank def. Karlovic 6-4 6-0 6-3

Why are so many players this season just showing up with no intention of winning, just to pick up a paycheck? Is the money situation THAT bad? This is pathetic. Steals opportunities from players who could give a real effort.

Great to see Schwank back again and with any luck, he can beat Mayer in the next round and get his ranking up.
