Nice scoreline for clay-court match :yeah: The longest match in qualifying this year: 3 hours 57 minutes.

Brands qualifies to his 2nd Roland Garros, De Chaunac was the last French hope in the qualifiers. 14 Frenchmen at the start, no-one has qualified to the main draw :help:

Seems to be another pathetic Roland Garros for the Frenchmen... Simon and Tsonga out of form, Monfils injured, Gasquet cokes... :o

I think it looked even worse last year before the start, with Gasquet and Tsonga out, and 0 good result on clay until Casachallenger. But at the end there were 1 semi finalist and three in 1/8, which is pretty good.
Although I don't exept any of them to go as far as Monfils did last year, some of them can reach 1/8 or 1/4.

It makes you wonder why the slam on clay is there.


It would be interesting if Brands (or Bozoljac too) draws Nadal.

Both players did well this qualifying event, really. Wanted Sébastien to win this, but am not unhappy with Brands in the main draw.
