The young Frenchman flashed his talent as expected but Pico is just too solid and experienced for him at this stage in their careers. Awesome passing shot winner from Pico to win the match. He got too passive too often the final three sets, but Rufin made too many errors for it to matter. Once Rufin gains more tactical ability to complement his weapons, he will be dangerous.

Can't believe some people really think Mugaco will put up a decent fight against Nadal. :facepalm:

Just two. But I'm watching like five matches at a time sometimes. Right now only three.

Pico did a good job here 41-28 winners-unforced errors to Rufins 41-48. Though Pico needs to improve at those break points. He should add more net play in his game he actually volleys well.

Good news for Raonic. Monaco is kinda weak.

Cause Raonic is like one of the best, they are on the same level. Roanic is like a weaker Isner. He has nothing but that serve.

What I meant is Monaco wasn't so powerful today.
Raonic should get to R4 easily.

well if monaco plays well then he is definately the favorite over raonic in the 3rd round so saying he should get to the 4th round easily isnt true

it would be an interesting match but if monaco plays well , the way he has been this clay season i'd put the match in his favor 60-40

Looking forward to Raonic - Monaco match-up! Raonic would trouble Nadal more than Monaco I think.

I can't deny Monaco is a very hard worker, he always battles hard out there and makes the most of his talent but, damn, he's one boring player to watch! I know he can, sometimes, hit the ball nicely and a few flashy winners but I really can't watch his matches from the beginning to the end with the exception being if he's playing one of my favourites. Props to him though, he grinded yet again another good win over a less-experienced, less consistent opponent.

Not really; he's strong on clay. But it was about time he finally won another match at RG :lol:

Nice fight, Juanini.

Am I the only one finding Rufin disgusting?
