Aaaargh, my Internet connection died in the middle of the match, I missed his win, it would have made my day to see him win this match! I was almost hoping it wasn't over yet when my Internet came back, but of course it was.

He was just being solid and serving well in the part of the match I saw, but it was good enough to beat Mika today. No show, in control, playing the way he needed to - same now against Benneteau, please!

In L'Equipe:
Quote:
MONFILS OU BENNETEAU ? – Il y aura au moins un Français en demi-finales puisque Julien Benneteau affronte aujourd’hui Gaël Monfils en quarts. Mercredi, à 23 h 50, « Bennet’ » avait fait mordre la poussière au numéro 5 Nikolay Davydenko (6-3, 6-2). Étrangement inconstant, le Russe fut une proie facile pour un Benneteau des grands jours : « J’ai été très bon en retour, très bon au service. J’ai joué mon jeu sans me soucier de lui. » Hier, malgré un déficit d’entraînement après sa blessure au poignet, Gaël Monfils a pris rendez-vous pour ce quart 100 %français : « Contre “Mika”, j’étais bien inspiré en retour, expliqua-t-il après sa victoire sur Llodra (6-4, 6-4). Et comme mon service marchait bien, tout s’est enclenché... » Dur d’affronter encore un compatriote aujourd’hui ? « Vu que le tennis français marche super bien, statistiquement, on a de plus en plus de chances de s’affronter. Pour moi, en tout cas, ce n’est pas un problème. »
I was wondering a little bit about Bennet's win over Davydenko and hoping he's not playing out of his mind, all of a sudden, but it says that Kolya was fairly poor and an easy prey. It sounds like Bennet is playing well too, though.
Gaël says he doesn't mind playing Frenchies. I don't think it'S a problem indeed against guys like Mika or Julien.

2nd match of the night session today, allez!

What a French choke from Julien when serving for the set at 5-3, even I was feeling bad for him. Gaël only played well a couple of points to get the lead in the tiebreak, but it seems he has a stomach bug again, so I'll cut him some slack.

It's unbelievable, he is sick half of the time. Huge guy, but with a baby's digestive system! His physio made a sign he was vomitting again during the bathroom break between the two sets, poor him.

Argh, my stream just died, this tennistv.com is such a joke.

UE from Julien on MP, no surprise.
It was a terrible match, but at least he didn't waste too much energy. Just relieved he came through.

That's bad news. I had picked him to win the tournament.

I know your feelings for Rafa and Muzza, so I'm putting things into perspective , but it's nice, thanks!

The draw in Marseille is horrible:

PHM in the first round and all the Frenchies together.
