Awesome from Paulo :worship:

Horna led 5-2 double break in the first set, Paulo comes back to win it on a tie break. Horna led 4-1 in the 2nd set, Paulo comes back to win it on a tie break. Then he rolls in the 3rd :rocker2: What happened to the choking Paulo :D

Grosjean next, a real chance to make it to the Quarters. Allez Paulo :hearts:

Like I said, this is going to be PHM's big breakthrough. He has a good chance of reaching the quarters too.

I was mocked throughout this forum when I said PHM will be in the top 20 by the end of this year. I'm gonna find the thread and bump it ;)

I left him out of my signature by mistake :bigcry:

I've made up for it by granting him star status under my name.

OMG. I overslept again. :help:

It was still really nerve-wrecking following the scores page by page. Another rollercoaster match from Paulo. What fighting this time though! :D

Good luck against Seb in the next round. :scared:

This doesn't mean anything. He showed moments of brilliance last year too but we all know that he isn't known for his consistency. :mad:

Grosjean is a better and more solid player than Clement, Bogomolov Jr. and Horna.

Yes but Paulo is a lot more confident now.Must you always be so negative?

And yeah Silver, Seb seems to be in great form right now.

C'mon guys, he is in the 4th round at a Grand Slam Tourney!!!

This is quite unexpected... anything is possible :lol:

Anyway, against Seb, BRING IT ON, PAULO :rocker2:

Well realistically speaking Paulo should have been out in the first round,that`s what everybody(including me) expected,but he reached the fourth round so everything is possible.

IMO, the Clement match was 40-60. This one is 25-75.

I've seen 2 of Grosjean's 3 matches, and he's really not playing that well. Tons of unforced errors, he was lucky Coria wasn't right yesterday. If Paulo can keep his never, I like his chances :D

MariaV
01-21-2006, 08:54 AM
Grosjean was almost error-less in the 1st rd vs Flip. That's the only match of him I've seen. He seemed to be in great shape.

I assume you mean "nerve". :ras:

Anyway, that's asking a lot considering

1) It's a big occasion
2) His opponent (he doesn't play well against his compatriots :o - Clement was an exception)

PHM has had the easiest of draws :tape: I think he will crash out easily to Sébastien, but we'll see. Even though his draw was very easy, he did beat all his opponents in straight sets so that should count for something.

Stop :tape:ing. It's not as if Boredo hasn't received easy draws before. :rolleyes:

He's usually very unlucky with draws (eg. Fed in the 1st round of Wimbledon last year) so it evens out. :shrug: Besides, it's not his fault that Gonzo and Gael didn't come through. And knowing him, he could have screwed up this draw but he didn't. :ras:

:nerner:

Fact is that he had a very easy draw and is possibly the weakest player in the 4R :ras:

Even Healey would have made a better player :angel:

Against Clement it was 50-50 and against Grosjean: 40-60

You didn't choose a good example , Paulo won this match thanks to his mental, read the report of the match.
