Roland Garros R1: Chardy def. Lu 6-4 6-1 6-7(3) 3-6 11-9

Escape for Jeremy. Was up 6-4 6-1 *5-3 and cruising. Lu was *3-2 in the fifth set and choked badly, double faulting to lose the break. Chardy needed five match points in the fifth to close it out.

Jeremy played pretty well to take the lead he did through the first three sets, Rendy was very negative, wasn't returning well, made a major amount of loose errors. But as soon as Jeremy served for it, he fell off the cliff and made tons of ridiculous errors all over the place and started hanging his head, and didn't recover until Rendy let him back in the match in the fifth set.

Ultimately, both guys had huge opportunities to close this out sooner, and Rendy will look at this as a failed one to get a rare clay-court win. Jeremy's serve really came through for him in the end, hit bomb after bomb, and played a solid final game with a great slice BH when Rendy was at the net, an aggressive return at 30-*15 and a good passing shot to win. Very good win for Jeremy, would have been heartbreaking for him to lose this.

Jeremy...that was lucky. Would've been the worst choke of all time if it had happened.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Good to see that Chardy kept his cool after missing so many match points, especially the triple MP he had at 9-8 on Lu's serve

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

One of the EPIC matches of RG 2012 ..............

So many tight/long matches. Why? Hot weather = extra slow courts and everybody is getting to the balls?

Re: Roland Garros R1: Chardy def. Lu 6-4 6-1 6-7(3) 3-6 11-9

epic indeed !
Chardy had 1 MP at 6-4, 6-1, 5*-3 then choked it
He had 1 MP at 8-7 on Lu's serve
He had 3 MP's at 9-8 on Lu's serve (it was 0-40).
The sixth MP was the good one !

Lu had also a break in the fifth, he broke at 2-2 and in the next game... he did 3 DF's Chardy needed it a lot at this moment !!

Chardy would have had nightmares about this match for years if he had lost this. Lu had his first break point of the match at 4-6 1-6 3-5* on a Chardy double fault.

Wrong, the courts are faster when the weather is hot and the ball bounces higher. The courts are laid on limestone base, sun dries out the court therefore conditions are quite quick relatively speaking. The ball is heavier this year.

Too bad the king of clay clowns couldn't beat the ballbashing buffoon.

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

Pretty slow conditions this year despite the weather.

Atrocious result for tennis.

Chardy . I'd love for him to get confidence again. In 2009 he was almost in the top 30.

Re: Roland Garros R1: Chardy def. Lu 6-4 6-1 6-7(3) 3-6 11-9

Surprisingly close scoreline considering Lu has only ever played 14 matches on clay in his 11 year pro career. From those, he won only 2. One of those wins was against Fernando Verdasco on the outdoor carpet courts of Madrid last year, and the other against an unranked Pakistani in the Davis Cup 11 years ago.

Juan Martin Del Potro

David Ferrer - Tommy Haas - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

Andy Roddick - Juan Carlos Ferrero - Mardy Fish
