Congrats Chicken Man, old Thunder Lips is going flog him in the next round.

Q. Where did you grow up?

JULIEN BENNETEAU: In France.

Q. Right.

JULIEN BENNETEAU: In Bourg en Bresse, near Lyon, 50 kilometers from Lyon.

Q. Good food.

Q. You were raised on chicken, right?

JULIEN BENNETEAU: Yes, yes.

Q. Every day, chicken?

JULIEN BENNETEAU: Not every day, but every week (laughter).

Q. Are you tired of chicken?

JULIEN BENNETEAU: No, no, I love that.

Q. Even for breakfast?

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".

I thought Benneteau would collapse in the fifth set with all the wasted chances in his mind and because Baghdatis is a proven 5set warrior who would probably raise his level as he is always tough in these situations. But congrats to Benneteau for keeping his level and winning this encounter to hand Baghdatis his first loss in a five setter.

Thanks for winning me money. Knowing as little as I do about tennis, I'm surprised I backed him at 3-1. Oh well, itmight be enough money to pay for bad gambler's lunch...

Nice win for Julien over the Second Coming (Baggy) Congrats!

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

Thank you, Julien, for not collapsing in the 5th set after this big choke job in the 4th set, that was, all in all, a very well-deserved win!

Bennetau played out of his mind, congrads to him.

But tough loss for Marcos.

Great win for Julien, his volley's and drop shots were great and the way he moved too. Well done to him!

Kinda shocked for Baggy though but that's the way it goes, always seed casualties

Please, can anyone post the video of the point in which both Baggy and Juliena fall? One of the bests points of the tournament so far.

Thanks!
