i hope I am not too optimistic but this is a pretty decent draw on paper and he should go deep provided no injuries flare up.

yes, even though I believed he would eventually pull through, it was very stressful. he was extremely frustrated and he had trouble keeping his posture. at one point I thought he had gone mad: he was nervously smiling and mumbling but he had this strange look about him. and eric was popping pills

That was torturous. Jo needs to work a lot on his service returns.

Anyway, a win's a win. Hope he has an easier time against Ouanna. No repeats of Marseilles first tiebreaker please.

Jo just wanted to get into the GS mood =p

slightly tense, but never really looked like actually losing it.

It's just a bit frustrating that the year he gets his best draw in paris, turns out to be the year when he has his worst form

Well, that was harder than it needed to be, but credit to Daniel Brands for playing positive attacking tennis. Hope Jo makes a concerted effort to move closer to the baseline and attack second serves more against Ouanna. It's actually a decent quarter and hopefully he can play himself into form and push himself as far as he can. It's Roland Garros after all - this is the ideal place for him to feed off the crowd's support, which he loves to do.

As a Tsonga fan, it's frustrating that he never brings his intensity from clay into the grass season.

Quick, somebody drug Tsonga and make him think that Wimbledon is in France.

Jo served poorly in the first set, but his ground strokes looked sharp all match.
Ouanna neither could serve well nor play consistently, but glad Jo got an easy, stress-free win. That too just before it started drizzling.

Stats:


And Jo signed this on camera.



Awww. How adorable is he?

Nice to see Jo cruise through this round, hopefully he's got enough confidence/energy to get through a much tougher 3rd rd match up.
