An OK performance from Marathon Man. Served very well, the rest of his game was so-so.

Nice performance from the young Brit. Only 17, could have a bright future.

Yeah, youngest player in ATP tournaments this year and very solid performance

Golding will be very good on hard courts. Hopefully many challengers this year, and good progress next season.

Great match for Oliver. I am looking forward to him in the future.

Tennis wins whenever Mahut wins.

Good match.

Good match for Oliver. I hope to see in Challengers.

Played really well did young Oliver. Look forward to watching some of his challenger matches.

Mahut.. gotta love this guy on the grass. Really, really do.

Golding played a decent match for someone of his experience and I'm sure a match like this will give him the confidence to string together a few wins at the lower-level tournaments and get himself into the top 200 by this time next year.

Mahut looks happy to be back on his favourite surface. Decent chance for him to get consecutive wins on the main tour here (plays Verdasco next) and will hopefully get a kind draw at Wimbledon to help him boost his ranking (please not Isner)...

Only saw bits and pieces but Golding looked pretty decent, hopefully he can make some good progress, plenty of time for him to do so. Would be nice to see Mahut have a good run here or better yet at Wimbledon.

Whoa. Golding was actor when he was child and decided to be a tennisplayer when he was 14. Very unusual.

I'm surprised how few posts there are. People seem to only follow top players. Oliver was also in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium no less.

I think he's cute and can't wait for him to get better known and go up the rankings. He isn't like many other British players and he takes it very seriously. I thought he played a great match and he has a bright future.
