Mike the grinder went to Paris earlier this week to test himself on clay. He was 31 seed for qualies.

QR2: def. Junqueira 64 76(6)
QFR: def. Hocevar 62 63
With these wins, Mike has now qualified for 3 of the past 4 majors(US Open, Wimbledon). Beating a guy like Hocevar 62 63 says a lot about Yani's game right now. Who would of thought he could do this on clay!?
In the main draw, Michael will play Lacko first round. The winner will likely face 11 seed Youzhny.
Join me in congratulating Mike for this huge feat! He has never played in Roland Garros before.
