Re: Christophe Rochus Cheering Thread!

Chris lost to Ilhan in the second round of Tunis, and is in the QF this week in Egypt as the #2 seed, beating Tosic 6-0 7-6 and Luncanu 6-3 6-2. He plays Dasnieres de Veigy tomorrow in the QF, let's hope for another victory!.

Re: Christophe Rochus Cheering Thread!

Chris lost 2-6 3-6 in Egypt in the SF and now is playing Madrid qualifying, starting today. Here is his draw:

(5) FALLA, Alejandro COL v ROCHUS, Christophe BEL
TRUJILLO-SOLER, Gabriel ESP v (10) HERNANDEZ, Oscar ESP

Falla will be tough but is a winnable match, he hasn't been playing great of late outside of a home challenger in Colombia and prefers hard courts. Likely King Oscar in the second round will also be tough for Chris.

Good luck vs. Falla, Christophe!

Chris beat Falla 6-3 5-7 6-2 and is playing King Oscar tomorrow for a place in the MD of Madrid. Difficult match but certainly winnable. Good luck, Chris!

Chris defeated King Oscar 6-4 6-3 and is into the MD of Madrid. Congrats, Chris! Hopefully he gets a kind spot in the draw where he can do some damage!

Re: Christophe Rochus Cheering Thread!

Chris got Isner in the MD. He has to hope that Isner is tired from the long Belgrade final, and that he returns and serves well, otherwise he has no hope and will be smacked right off the court. He can make things tricky for John, he seems to be playing well, hopefully that good form continues.

Re: Christophe Rochus Cheering Thread!

Seems like Christophe is enjoying himself again. Is he stageing a comeback?

He got a wildcard for F4 Futures in France and easily reached the semifinals, in which he lost to Kenny De Schepper:

Re: Christophe Rochus Cheering Thread!

I don't think he's staging a comeback. I think he still plays if he's motivated, it's close to home and when it's fun for him. In any case, it's nice to see him playing once again and I am glad his life post-tennis has by all reports been stress free and good for him

Seems he will take part in the municipal elections in October in the village of Grez-Doiceau. He will support the current mayor, Alain Clabots, who leads a local party.
