I am watching Jo and wino at the interlaps and it's terrible

Jo is like unreachable. Wino is whispering tenderly some advice and Jo is daydreaming far away.

At least, he found some form

Good third set : first a return to the basis with the good ol' moonball plan : "defend hard, defend sure, make him sweat". Second, some tentative gameplan, some controlled agression and some good winners.

It's not the craziest match I've ever seen Jo played, but it's sweet to find him a little happier on court (particularly after having watched Gilles "galère")

Sounds like story of Jo on clay in 2009 to me
I see he managed to win, good news. I can't say I am genuinely excited about a win over Ginepri, but hey, I'll desperately cheer for what I get:

Jo is a little better atm, but Ginepri is playing atrocious too.

If you like UEs fest and occasional good points, this match is for you.

I'm glad to hear Jo has found form. Too bad Gilles lost again, poor guy can't seem to get a break. I am actually amazed he accomplished so much with his fragile-looking physique. I wonder if France has a chance to play any more matches, I doubt it but if they did it would be good for experience. I'm not sure about the format of Düsseldorf.
Fingers crossed for Paris now. I hope the french crowd gives him the excellent support he feeds on.

Guys, I made 50 vcash by betting on Jo-Ginepri. I was the ONLY mtf poster to place a bet on either player. I guess nobody cared

Eventhough I think it could have been a lot worse and I would only worry about possible a Juan Monaco in the first 3 rounds, now that Benneteau has won more matches on clay than Jo, I am going to look at the draw one match at a time and be content if he goes past 1st round. Good Luck Jo!

Bennet is a tricky opponent for Jo (he has already lost one time against him on hard last year), and a trickier one at RG where he had some really good results : something like one quarter final and a 1/8 final last year, that's telling something.

So has you said, one match at a time is a good approach.

Congratulations donna karen! I wish you love and happiness in your married life.

As for Jo, Benneteau will be a good first test. Hope he finds that extra gear, work himself into form and anything is possible. Good luck!

Well, the 2nd round is very tricky, but the 1st and 3rd are not that bad. I'd prefer if he had Roddick's quarter, but no such luck Good luck Jo.
