Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

It isn't the best draw but you've got to beat the best to win right? Hopefully Jo will do us proud. Allez Jo Willy!!!

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

I've not had much chance to see RG as it's half term here (it's a bit unfair of me to make my kids stay in and watch hours of tennis! ) but best of luck Jo for later.

Monaco will be tougher, but nothing Jo can't beat

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Tough match, tough win, but good one for the tournament.

It was a little "Spaniard Jo" today, with a lot of forehands. A good strategy for him.

I reckon that many naysayers in GM are going to be surprised thursday with his match against Monaco.

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Nice win Jo!

Did you guys see that smash he did on SP in (i think) the third set? Pretty awesome

Re: Clay Season Thread 2009

Great start by Jo! And that slam-dunk smash – that was Jo at his uninhibited, explosive best!

I felt bad for Benneteau as he had done so well to reach the finals in Austria as a lucky loser last week and was playing well - this was a cruel draw for him. Still, the most important thing is that Jo won his first match at RG Juan Monaco is going to be one tough cookie in the second round. As long as Jo keeps his head, doesn't become too impetuous at key moments, he should progress to the third round and give the discerning French crowd thrills galore.

I've seen it on one of the links on adthe, but the tennis channel stream is much better

It's a tight one, but Jo takes the first set 7:5
