Battle of the French: Grosjean vs. PHM

So, who will win in the Rd. 16?
Amazingly these two have never met.
Grosjean is a former AO Semifinalist. Paul-Henri has never gotten out of the 1st round (this performance actually equals his best result ever in a Slam).

Would you consider this a no-brainer for Grosjean or not?

Re: Battle of the French: Grosjean vs. PHM

Wasn't Paulo's last GS R16 at the French in '02... el choke massivo contra Agassi.

I'd like to see PHM make it through, but I think the experience of Grosjean will tell.

Yes. That's the one.

Actually, he has had many chances to pass this stage. 2 MPs against Sargsian at the USO 2004 and then 2 MPs against Canas last year at RG (would have given him a QF since Kiwi withdrew), both 3rd rounds.

Yes, I recall the disappointment of that classic 3rd rounder against Sargsian. And last year's RG must be so much more heart-breaking when considering Canas' failed drug test and Kiefer's withdrawal. A definite shoulda-been-QF.

Sebs in AWESOME form. No bias.

Séb Grosjean ; Arnaud Clément ; Guillermo Coria; Marcos Baghdatis; Jo Jo Tsonga
Lleyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick are arrogant pigs
