The clay court experience of Devilder too much for Jonesie, who lacked penetration on his serve and committed too many errors compared to Devilder. Jonesie served at 72%, fairly decent, in the 2nd set but only won 32% of those points, so Devilder must have returned well. Hope that Jonesies previous leg injury did not affect his play.
Disappointing end to his run, in a match he could have won.
I suppose that is the reason the Jonesie struggled against Devilder, a former top 100 player coming back from an injury lay-off, who is a very good on clay. R3 at Roland Garros is class. But I agree, a potential lost opportunity for Jones... if he could have beaten him. Not to be, this year.
Good luck to Devilder.
Jones has to have the worst luck in draws. No.1 seed the one week, No.2 seed the next. Needs some luck draw.
Pretty close between these two - one ranked 84, the other 303. That's how competitive men's tennis is!
