Paul-Henri Mathieu def Davide Sanguinetti 5-7 7-6(4) 6-4

Paulo Great fight in the second set!

He started the match rather poorly, giving away free points with UEs. He looked down and out in the second set, only winning 1 point on Sanguinetti's serve in the first 4 games. Then, at 5-4, he started to fight and made some magnificent gets (similar to those he made against Roddick) to give him 2 SPs but both were saved. 0-3 down in the TB, he won 7 of the next 8 points to squeeze out the second set. He led 4-2 in the third, got broken back, then broke again and served out the match.

He's going to lose to Gonzo but what the heck. I'm glad he pulled out this match.

Yeah, valid point, but match was a classic Mathieu´s show, PHM was shivering every time he went down 0-15 or 15-30, he looked like he had lost, he recovered, then when he looked he was gonna nail it for sure, comitted 4ue´s in a row to get broken again in 3rd set, and finally wins it. He´s still the number 1, Verdasco has to fight a lot to surpass him yet

Well done Paulo!!! That was fastidious but he did it. After his cruel loss against Youzhny in 2OO2 and all the 1st round losses in the Paris MS, he won his first match ever in Bercy...
Good luck against Gonzalez

Tell me about it. That game was just typical of him. Went for too much on all 4 shots.

In the post-match interview, he said "That's what is fascinating with me, we never know what to expect!"

At least he won one match in Paris so I'm satisfied!
He won't win against Feña,but I hope he cut some stupid errors down!

Stan The Paris Man

Cheer for: Wawrinka Murray Ljubicic Gonzalez Mahut Nishikori Soderling Tipsarevic Mathieu Monfils Muller Tsonga Berdych Acasuso O.Rochus Kiefer...
