Roland Garros R1: [13] Monaco def. [WC] Rufin 6-2 2-6 6-2 7-6(3)

The young Frenchman flashed his talent as expected but Pico is just too solid and experienced for him at this stage in their careers. Awesome passing shot winner from Pico to win the match. He got too passive too often the final three sets, but Rufin made too many errors for it to matter. Once Rufin gains more tactical ability to complement his weapons, he will be dangerous.

Can't believe some people really think Mugaco will put up a decent fight against Nadal.

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Just two. But I'm watching like five matches at a time sometimes. Right now only three.

Pico did a good job here 41-28 winners-unforced errors to Rufins 41-48. Though Pico needs to improve at those break points. He should add more net play in his game he actually volleys well.

Good news for Raonic. Monaco is kinda weak.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.

Cause Raonic is like one of the best, they are on the same level. Roanic is like a weaker Isner. He has nothing but that serve.

What I meant is Monaco wasn't so powerful today.
Raonic should get to R4 easily.

...Really?
well if monaco plays well then he is definately the favorite over raonic in the 3rd round so saying he should get to the 4th round easily isnt true

it would be an interesting match but if monaco plays well , the way he has been this clay season i'd put the match in his favor 60-40
