Roland Garros R1: [29] Benneteau def. [Q] Zverev 6-2 6-7(3) 6-4 6-4

Awesome effort from Julien. Some amazing volleys the final two sets. Was cramping at the end of the match and started coming to net more as a result, served big the final couple games. Saved 0-30 at *4-3 in the fourth with great serving and volleys, and a great crosscourt BH winner. Julien served for the second set, he could have won much easier in straights, the quality of the match was pretty mediocre, but both guys competed very hard. Very good win for Julien given he only started hitting again a little over a week ago!

Yeah, apparently, he and his team really stretched their limits to make sure he was fit for RG

Emotional win for him, good that he turned out fit to play and even win here.
Hope he is fit for next match, which is well winnable too.
