Oooookay, great match.
First set was a monologue, 5-0 Tomic up, and when serving 5-1 he got broken.
He easily broke and won the 1st set. At that moment the match was in Tomic hands.
But Julien reacted so well... And won the 2nd set deserving it.
He was break up in the 3rd set but Bernard recovered it fast, and then... You know the end of the story. Julien saved 3 MPs, but it wasn't enough. Tomic won a very, very important match.

Congratulations Bernard, keep on the good work.

Awful loss for Benneteau in the end. Did so much work to get in a winning position then mugged it up.

Tough way to end it for Benneteau. He received medical treatment and had a good deal of DF's in the end of that 3rd set.

3rd set of this one was the first set of tennis I've watched this year and it was pretty entertaining. Tomic has good potential.

I thought Tomic was absolute garbage for most of it, apart from the first set. Too many unforced errors on big points not to mention blew 5 match points before he actually got one by default. Benneteau was alright in patches but overall it wasn't pretty by both players.

Not a great match from Tomic, too many wasted opportunities. At least he seemed happy with the way he played. :shrug:

Didn't think it was that bad a match, especially for the opening hit out of the season for both. Some sexy tennis from B-Nard in the opener then the trademark lack of concentration kicked in during the second set, combined with Benneteau lifting his level. Benne then dominated from the middle of the second to the middle of the third then started cramping up. Tomic took advantage, regained his focus and won it on his sixth match point.

This is a good victory for Tomic considering that Benneteau is one of those dangerous floating players that can give a hard day to anyone if he is a good one.
