Roland Garros R1: [6] Ferrer def. Lacko 6-3 6-4 6-1

Pretty routine. Lacko had his chances the first two sets, had break point at 2 all in the first set, but David is simply too consistent, too solid, and by the third set he started taking control of more rallies and playing more offensively. Lukas gave a good account of himself overall but he was never winning, didn't serve well enough today.

Not a vintage performance but more than good enough from Ferrer.

Lacko wasn't up a break in the first set, he was broken in his first service game and then broke back directly in Ferrers second service game to 2-1*.

Lukas quite surprisingly showed some promising moments in the first 2 sets. He was better than I expected, but obviously Ferrer is too good. Hoping for some better draws for Lukas, especially at Wimbledon. He wasn´t that bad today, so potential could be there. Lukas absolutely hates clay, so now the things will really matter for Lukas.

Good luck to Ferrer, he´s a great hardworker.

Ferrer is the sixth seed, not the fifth.

True, I made a mistake, meant to write he had BP at 2 all in the first set.

Lacko is the most happiest guy on tour that clay season finally ends.

His confidence is lower now and you can see it on his serve. It is a mirror of his confidence and now he serves bad.

He needs to be better on grass, that is for sure.

Ferrer is so boring to watch. Even more than Nadal. Lukas should be happy that the clay season is over.

Ferrer - such a likeable guy off the court I decided to watch this, couldn't be any more boring than the last match I saw him play? WRONG, Ferrer makes Nadal look like Stefan Edberg. :o

Lacko was in rallies, which were nice to watch, he just wen't for winners maybe too soon and made a lot of errors because of it, he was playing aggressive and really seemed to be trying which is nice to see vs. Ferrer, he just can't or doesn't know how to hit the lines on clay, of the 1st 3 mens matches of the day that were shown, this was the one to watch for me.

Looking forward to seeing Lacko on grass, although I don't think he does very well there either.
