Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Bah, close match between friends, tough loss
Fortunately, Olivier got into Gstaad. Let's hope for a good draw and a great run to get back on track

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Olivier hasn't been playing well this whole year, but he had a great run in Ukraine and looked dominating in winning his first CH of the year.

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Last week Olivier beat some very good players and reached the final in Florianopolis. He lost to Massu, but still a good week. He's playing Massu again in Montevideo first round
Let's hope he can play well and push towards the top-100 by the end of the year.

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Wish him luck against Massu, hope he can reverse the loss.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

He lost first round to Massu in Montevideo but seems to be playing well in BA. He had to qualify but now he's in the quarters against Thomaz Bellucci. Tough match, but good luck Olivier

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Olivier has rising Argentine Leo Mayer in the first round of Cali. It's a 125k+H, so tons of points to be gained. Good luck Olivier

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Lost 7-6 in the third after being up 4-0 in the third and having 4 match points, 2 at 6-4 in the 3rd set tiebreak.

:retard:

Excessive emoticons for emphasis

Still, due to Olivier's terrible first half of last year, he has basically no points to defend for, well, the first half of the year

Because of this and his very good second half, some good play in these next few months (be it challengers or getting in ATP tournaments when he can) could get Olivier in the top 100 again. (Ok, I'm not getting my hopes up)

That, however, would involve not pulling enormous classic French (sorry) chokejobs against players ranked 100 spots below yourself. And also, you know, winning matches.

So do that then

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Tomorrow in BA Qualies Olivier plays Zabaleta. Tough draw, but winnable as Mariano is just returning.
Allez.

Re: Olivier Patience anyone?

Finally some solid play.
Acapulco Qualies:
Q1: beat Sebastian Rivera 6-2 6-1
Q2: beat Lopez Jaen 6-3 6-2

20 points gained by Olivier and he'll now play his first ATP match of the year.
Unfortunately, all the qualifiers got really bad draws.
He has Monfils in the first round, who is now top-10.
Monfils retired against Olivier last year, so we'll see what happens.
Either way, it appears he is a bit more focused now, it's about time. Good luck
