well there has been a bit of confusion surrounding Olivier because he's into the final of the Roma challenger ( ) but is also scheduled to play the first round of qualies for the masters today (they've scheduled him late ar 6pm against Hernych)...but some ppl are saying he won't be allowed to compete in both...so not sure what's going to happen
hi...does anyone know what happened to Olivier cos i'm a bit confused. I was watching the quali livescores last night when he was playing Montañés...he was losing 0-3 in the third set when suddenly it said WINNER: O. PATIENCE...so i assumed albert retired and olivier won...but then i see in the draw it's Montañés who got through (and now he's already lost to Costa)...does that mean it was actually Olivier who got injured and they just screwed up on the scoreboard? and if so, anyone know what's wrong with him? hope he's ok!!
From the FFT news:
L'odyssée de Patience - Une autre lutte fratricide a opposé en finale du Challenger de Rome (21 250 €) Olivier Patience (n°3) et Florent Serra (n°1). Le Normand s'est imposé 7/6 (4), 7/5, un succès d'autant plus méritant qu'il disputait simultanément les qualifications de l'ATP Masters Series! Malheureusement, il a abandonné au dernier tour de ces "qualifs", victime d'une douleur au genou.
>> He did retired during his 2nd Ql match because of some pain in the knee.
