Expected result.

Julien is going to want Federer in the 3rd round so he can prove what he did in Paris wasn't a fluke.

Benneteau can't serve, attack, volley and play like a God on clay as he did in Paris ;) :haha:

Querrey really needs to fix this tiebreak problem he has. Barely over 50% career.

:lol: Well, I don't think it will happen, but who knows, maybe he gets more inspired from all of the doubters who don't think he can do it again(like Roger himself) :p Or maybe it doesn't matter which surface it is played on, Julien just has out-of-body experiences in him when playing Roger :tennis: I don't know, a boy can dream :angel: But at least when he is old he can always say he beat Roger Federer in Paris in front of his home countries fans.

Sam is a clown outside MM tournaments in US. He can't even win matches in IW and Miami, let alone Rome.

yes :lol:

but he already lost several times on clay against Federer, including in Paris, clay is for pushers like Federer, not for serve-and-volley gods like Benneteau :lol:

He hasn't been the same since he won Memphis/since Davis cup, it's not about clay, he wasn't playing well in IW and Miami too.

Serve and volley God's and Benneteau in the same sentence. Now I know I must be dreaming :crazy:

You are right though, Benneteau is clearly too good for clay. His aggressiveness, style, and class is above the long and boring rallies on the dirt. He will probably lose to Volandri easily to put Roger in a false sense of security thinking he is easy bait for him, and when the Wimbledon final comes around, Roger won't know what hit him. It will be like Pete Sampras reincarnated!

well in Paris that day it was nearly like that :cool:

or I'd rather say Federer as he didnt' make serve and volley, there was the good and the average Federer on two sides of the net :lol:

Sam needs to fall through a glass table again. Maybe the table was cursed and he needs to reverse it.

Yup. Djokovic too.

Perhaps that's why Querrey is heading back to Belgrade next week - can play Djoko in the final and reverse the hex :-)

Querrey seems to perform better in U.S. Outside U.S. he is a novice.
