Roland Garros R2 : Fognini def. Troicki 6-2 3-6 4-6 6-3 8-6 saves 2 match points

Fog was pretty solid in the 1st set, got bored and then Troicki who is to tennis as Sepp Blatter is to anti-corruption levelled.

The Fog will be happy with the suspension don't want the hair to get messed up. Hope he comes back 2nd match tomorrow and finishes the job.

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

It's raining hence the suspension.

Fognini is too solid, should beat this disgrace of a tennis player tomorrow

Troicki in 4, everything going as expected

“There’s so many athletes, tennis players around the world,” he continued, trying to put his life into some kind of perspective, “they want to be the best in what they do. They want to succeed. Many of them, they don’t succeed in the end. I’m fortunate to have this opportunity and succeed.”

Don't feel obliged to support Troicki because you're Serb Taejin. Self-flagellation hurts you know.

Interruption clearly worse for Troicki, who had the momentum on his side. Hopefully he will take this in 4 when play resumes tomorrow.

Well, I don't feel obliged to support Fognini just because he's god around here for reasons unknown either

I really like both. I don't mind which one wins, I just hope the winner goes through the next two sets easily. If it is Tsonga who is in the next round then I would perhaps prefer Fognini as I give him more chance of causing the upset than Vik.

Cant understand why anyone can favor Fog over Troicki, i think ranking speaks for it self.
I hope for faster surface tommorow and to send this Italian clown home.
To bad Viktor gifted 1. break in first set with silly UE.
