Wow, that was great
Both have incredible volleys, Rochus also has a good pass, this match had like no unforced errors. Best Rochus has played in years, Paire is so talented.
2 3rd set breakers in a row, the road must end here though :sad:

David beats Goliath, but I rooting for Goliath in Australia. He's so much fun. Maybe I'll get tired of his antics like Monfils, but for now Paire has a new fan. So much talent for someone ranked 92.

AMAZING match. Sadly Benoit lost after he had 2 break points to go 2 breaks up in the third.
Rochus played unbeliaveble well too.

Hopefully someone puts a highlight real- it was more fun than any of the exos in Kooyang.

Rochus would have 5-10 slams by now if someone had the smarts to place him on a rack as a kid.

Rochus makes for good matches - he's had some absolute beauties over the years.

Good to see Paire starting to put it together also. I always wanted to see what would happen if he got a few big crowd matches under his belt, if he got a taste for it. Might spur him to take the game seriously.

Wow, Rochus is the mental giant of 2012 so far. Winning two matches in a row by 7-6 in final set. :worship:

I would be very grateful for some highlights of this match too. Everybody is saying what a great match it was, there was like no UEs and the whole match is a highlight in fact. :)

Don´t believe the hype, Paire had his usual 50+ UEs in a 3 setter me reckons

Yes, Paire made many UE's but still was a very good match with some stunning points. It seemed like an exho match, sometimes, but playing seriously. My favourite one was the dropshot of Paire, I have to see it again!
