Re: O. Rochus def. J. Vanek 6/2 6/0 6/2

great win
quite comfortable
I like the little belgian
he makes it look easy
I always wonder how much better he could have done with a few more centimeters & a few pounds
gives hope to the rest

Olli rocks
great win, it seems like nobody can stop him. Who will? Next round Martin, and then possibly stepanek or marcos-benneteau. He's in a pretty good side of the draw... maybe he can get to the quarters
c' mon olli

I did not know this but it is only the second time Ollie makes it to the 3rd round in Paris, and last time is 5 years ago. And as I type, I realize that I have seen that match, it was on center court against Kafelnikov.
It would be nice if Ollie could make it to the QF of a Slam.

Great chance for the quarters for Rochus. Take advantage of the draw Ollie.

Re: O. Rochus def. J. Vanek 6/2 6/0 6/2

Oli is on a roll! He only lost 7 games in the first round and now 4. Very impressive

A good performance here will push him further towards the top-20. I've much believe he can accomplish that at the end of year


Xavier Malisse & Kristof Vliegen & Olivier Rochus

Steve Darcis - Dick Norman - Christophe Rochus

Desein - Bemelmans - Masson - Mertens - Authom - Wauters

A quick match like this bodes well for little Oli, since fitness is often what lets him down in the slams.

Andreev - Cilic - Dolgopolov - De Bakker - Djokovic - Gulbis - Haase - Hrbaty - J Johansson - Kucera - Kuznetsov - Russell - Simon - Sweeting - Thron
