I've expected for tougher match. Again, as in match with Kukushkin, Marchenko was very nervous. It seems Marchenko had sleepless night and has burned out before the match :( Today Illya's tennis was terrible. So, we have easy win of Sergiy who is also far from his best form

OMG, this win was much-much needed for Illya and the loss creates many problems with his ranking

People on Ukrainian tennis forums, connected to Marchenko's club, say Illya has catched a chill in Paris and today played with temperature :(

Did it affect his play much?

Usually Marchenko looks better on fast indoor courts, but last half year with new coach destroyed his confidence

Court seemed a little quick for Marchenko, couldn't touch the Stak serve, and hard to play his defensive game too.

Anyway, Stakhovsky is always going to beat Marchenko on a fast court, if he's in decent form (seems he's been perpetually unfit/tired for a while now though).
