Congrats Martin on making the 3rd round and defeating a good player like Grosjean.

Good payday and ranking points for the battler and he showed his best friend Chucho how to get the job done against a good player.

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".

Saw the end of the match...good job Martin.

I like many tennis players including Ancic, Cilic, Djokovic, Gasquet, Monfils, Murray, Troicki, Tsonga

I watched the end of the fourth set. Grosjean made some awful UE in the last game (3 with his forehand, in very confortable positions and one with his backhand). All what Martin had to do was to put the ball in the court. I wonder whether all the match was like this, with Grosjean making these gross mistakes.

Many moments of the match were like that, yes. It wasn't the best version of Grosjean.

I would say that "horrendous" is somewhat exaggerated, he made AO QF, and that was the tournament where he could have done something, and he did. He also made Marseille SF, the only tournament on a surface that really favors him in the last times.
Sure it isn't a very good season, he had the conditions to beat Vassallo and should be very angry with himself, but the parts of season that really interests him, didn't start yet.

You really don't know Grosjean then, RG is his favorite tournament...

And I keep thinking his season is really disappointing until now

After the game was suspended yesterday i didn't have a lot of confidence that Martin would take the match.

I'm so happy for him

Playing like this he has a good chance of reaching the second week and i'm loving every minute of it.

This is a big chance for him to make the 4th round here and playing Sluiter is a dream for this task.

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".

That reasoning works the other way round as well. Sluiter hasn't made it past the first week of a slam either and is apparently in good form.

17 (yes, yes, yes!) Slams! And counting....

The difference is that Sluiter isn't very good on clay and this year he especially sucked
