Roland Garros R2: [9] Del Potro def. Roger-Vasselin 6-7(5) 7-6(3) 6-4 6-4

The Frenchman was 7-6 *4-3 40-0 up. Major missed opportunity for ERV, as JMDP was looking very negative through the first half of the match. As soon as ERV allowed Juan back in, there was only going to be one winner.

A lot better serving the final three sets and more aggressive, offensive play from Juan after falling behind in set two, cut out the bad errors, started moving better. All things considering, not a bad performance after the first 1 1/2 sets, something he can build on vs Cilic. Good to see some fire from Juan at the end.

Very tough win for Delpo. Let's hope his knee isn't too serious.

RIP Henry Chinaski. A true MTF legend

Pff, that was really far too tough. I was really worrying after 7-6 4-3, as he was playing pretty poorly and didn't have the good attitude to turn a 0-2 around.
Even when he won the second set and you'd think that he would be okay, he still had lots of problems. Had 15-40 at 4-3 and 0-30 at 5-4, but won both games. In the fourth things went easier, but not good that he spent 3,5 hours on court with that knee. But he didn't call for the doctor this time, did he? That's a good sign.

Del Potro is a tremendous fighter, but the road should end here. No way is he getting past Cilic with his current hampered movement. Either the knee is sorted out or he's out in round 3. Hope it doesn't at least affect the rest of the season.

Vasselin is a massive choker, otherwise he'd the one in round 3.

yip, end of the road, no way he beats cilic.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

Doud played very well and showed a lot of heart. He kept fighting for each point.

Poor choke by ERV given Del Potro looked physically cooked after set one.
