Thanks, that does seem like too much. I guess he's expecting to lose early in some of them given how long its been since he played. Hope his injury has fully healed this time. Allez Ben!

Yes it seems a bit too much tournaments in a row except he's waiting first round losses

Ben will play his first match back tomorrow, 2nd match on Central court, Casablanca, v Albert Montanes.

It could be very tough - Montanes is a strong clay court player. Allez, Ben!

Not a classic match but a win is a win, and after nearly 3 months off, I'll take it. 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 over Montanes, R2, Casablanca.

Ben was better than I expected at times, but quite up down over the whole match. He ranged from poor to hitting some excellent winners – some lovely backhands down the line, a few great lobs, and some really fine drop shots. Montanes level was fairly poor throughout most of the match.

Ben could have won in 2 - he was a set and a break up, and served for the match leading 5-4, but was broken to love. He made a bit of a mess of the end of the 2nd set and smashed his racquet, but did enough to hold it together in the 3rd, helped by Montanes not playing well.

Ben's movement seemed ok but he was playing a lot of serve and volley, trying to keep points short at times. Not sure if that was about his lack of fitness, or if it was tactical. It was effective, either way. He played with his left knee strap on, but took it off early in the 3rd set and sprayed something onto his knee.

Can you get spray on painkiller? I guess it would numb the area or something. Anyway, hopefully nothing serious.

Allez!

I just saw a few minutes of this before I had to go out. Did anyone see the match?

Worryingly, Ben had a new black support plaster underneath the usual white tape on his left knee.

Edit: From Ben's instagram. Hopefully, he is just being careful.

It was a very up-and-down match from Benoit (when isn't it ). Again, he was in a position to serve out a set and failed (from 5-3 to 6-7). I am happy he's back, but I have to wonder if his knee is ok or if he came back too early.

But this is reassuring:

Thanks RU90. I'm worried about the knee too. Hopefully, it will be ok.

Ok, so the match didn't go so well.

But people in Monte Carlo say Ben seemed happy and not worried about the loss. He says he just needs more practice/ matches to find his rhythm.
