Another horrible result of this event. Not b/c Julien won, but Benni needed this win so much more. He fought so hard in the third set to hang on for nothing. He would have been top 150 with this win. So disappointing and unfortunate.
How can Benneteau be seeded? What has he done lately?
Some of these guys born the same year as Federer have barely declined, I mean players who never were big shots and not even dangerous players in their peak like Benneteau, Lopez, Fish, Nieminen, Melzer and so on are still going strong as ever in their 30s.
I would just have loved if the really talented players from that generation like Davydenko and Nalbandian would learn how to resist aging like these guys.
