Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

Looks like de Bakker so far in the 3rd, has a set point for 2:1 before the rain break. Well done Jojo

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

Nice win, and he beat the rain too. Next up De Bakker - time for revenge.

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

Tight match against Thiemo. Is anyone watching and can provide some feedback how is Jo playing?

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

Jo could have won the first set. Had so many break points and double faulted at 5-6 in the TB. Thiemo has been serving big. Jo then took a medical time out for a back problem. Movement looked to be affected for sometime. Then I guess it loosened up because he's moving better now.

Jo got an early break in the 3rd set and went up 3-0, but then got broken again and now it's 3-all.

He's playing like usual. LOTS of winners and LOTS of errors.

EDIT: He was also clutching his left wrist at one point early in the first set. Looks physically comfortable for now.

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

I am watching but came to complain.
Jo had an injury earlier and had treatment
he broke and got broken right back in the 3rd.
I think he's limping a bit but I'm not sure.
He is playing a mix of his typical good shots and horrendous errors and awful double fault to give mp.
I feel he's rushing to finish the points.

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

Wilfried has picked up his level a few notches. That was a fantabulous game to get an early break in the 4th. Please Jo. Hold all the way through.

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

Jo was literally limping at the end of this match. Looked beat tired and was grabbing his back.

Anyone catch what he said in the on-court interview with Leconte? I put together words and am guessing he said he wanted to continue because Roland Garros is special? Aww.


Hoping a day off will help him.

Well done Jo

Lots of important points defended, just don't push yourself too much if you are carrying an injury

Re: Clay Courts are back! :D

Yes, I'm also a bit afraid he'd push himself even if he's not fully fit and risk potentially aggravating the injury, home crowd, slam all that, wants to do his best here. Good win today
