Merited loss. They only had one bp, while their opponents had eight. But you would have thought, that with Melzer as doubles partner, they should have been able to win that match. Guess I underestimated Benneteau's doubles skills.

Positive news:
Querrey defeated Grosjean, which should increase Kiwi's chances to reach the next round (I only said "increase" not "guarantee", okay? ).

Going to be interesting to see how he will do with Kohlschreiber in his first attemps. I really have no idea

Llodra won Wimbledon and was finalist in Australia with Clement in doubles... So I think losing in 3 sets against one of the top doubles players is ok...

Playing double with Kohli in Indian Wells and Miami should give Kühnen something to think I guess... Hope they get along well and can play Olympia together

Sure is. Just that Melzer is also a decent doubles player, while I didn't know much about Benneteau, when it comes to the doubles competition.

I don't expect them go very far, to be honest. Of course it would be nice to be proven wrong.

3rd match on CC tonight, so those with TTC should be able to see him win, hopefully.
I accept a loss against Hewitt, but it would be really nice if he defeated Querrey. Come on, Kiwi.

Benneteau is better in doubles than in singles for sure, but I was still hoping for a win. I'm a bit skeptical about Kiwi's doubles skills, not sure whether he deserves to play the Olympics to be honest.

Worst career loss for Kiwi I would say. I've never seen such a bad 1st serve win % for him and Querrey is not exactly a good returner.

Unrealy, this really looked piss weak from watching the scoreboard

Kiwi allowed Querrey to go 5/6 on break points, too


really seemed to be very weak, did somebody watch this murder?

And Hewitt lost too.
Kinda of a wasted opportunity...
Well, I'll keep my expectations low for the following two tournaments.

If it's any consolation, Kiwi lost against the winner of the tournament.
Let's hope for a good draw in IW without any of the top players in the first two rounds
