Wow! Although Benneteau is a mug, he broke him 5 times and hit just 4 UEs during the entire match :eek:
Looked like a very solid match, I think he is the favourite against Ljubo.

p.s. No thread on this one yet? :rolleyes:

Definitely not an Ivo kind of scoreline :eek:
But he has a lot of those nowadays. Can't wait for the Ljubo-Ivo match :D

Ivo's playing great. He won 40% of return points! Very un-Ivo like stat. He really seems to have stepped his game up. He looks much faster and smoother on court. I missed this match, but in previous match he was looking much more comfortable with the one hand drive backhands. I'd put him as favorite against Ljubo, but credit to Ljubo, he's really picked his game up and resurrected a career that I really thought was over about a year ago.

Where are tiebreaks? :eek:

Interesting result with Ivo losing serve 2 times in the first set which is very rare...and then breaking Julien 5 times which is even more outstanding :lol:

(I guess the courts are truly very slow :tape:)
