Not sure how he did it after saving 8 BPs this set but he finally held to love, then broke Paire to lead 6-5. Hopefully he can serve it out now but the way this set is going, anything is possible.

Which Twitter account are you looking at chantelle? Did it say anything else about the match? From the scores, it doesn't look like he's serving well which has been a problem since his foor injury.

He won his service game to love to take the set 7-5. Hopefully he can maintain this now.

He hasn't served any aces which is worrying but he saved 8 BPs in that set so at least he is hanging tough.

Don't think Benoit is playing badly either, all of his UEs are DFs...

Grigor needs to hang in there, I really want him to win this one.

On the untelevised courts, the winners listed are only aces and the UEs are DFs. You don't get any further information on these courts.

It looks like it might have helped him because he's won his last 3 service games to love.

That stats is not true ... They just don't have info for W/UE and the only thing that counts are the aces and the double faults, so that's why all of his UEs are DFs

He's going to have to turn this match around soon. I found these tweets about the match.

OnTheGoTennis ‏@onthegotennis
Grigor really bothered by his foot. It's a little worrisome

Sandy ‏@nycsandygirl
@sapphireswell @gandaines ok I will but enjoying Grigor for the moment. He is killing it w some great passing shots, volleys & drop shots

Sandy ‏@nycsandygirl
Awesome drop shot from Grigor to get AD. It almost went back over the net. Grigor had a big smile on his face. Cute.

So looks like he will play those tournaments next:

24-30 Sep - Thailand Open (he is in the main draw)
01-07 Oct - Rakuten Japan Open Tennis Championships (he needs 3 players to withdraw to get in the main draw)
08-14 Oct - Shanghai Rolex Masters (he will play qualies here)
15-21 Oct - IF Stockholm Open (he is in the main draw)
22-28 Oct - Swiss Indoors Basel (he needs 6 players to withdraw to get in the main draw)

I'm glad he's taken a long break until his next tournament. He's had a few foot problems over the summer so it will give him time to heal, rest and work on his game. Hopefully he comes to Thailand motivated and in good form.
