Re: Week 46 : Salzburg (Entry List)

This match is really bad. Grega has been in bad enough form lately and the matches from this week I've seen he was also playing very average. Benoit is suitably worse in all departments of the game except for the serve.

It's a low intensity match, neither are really showing a lot. Grega isn't playing that badly, he's not doing much overly good nor overly bad. Benoit is the one making tons of errors.

Benoit lacks weapons on hard court outside of his serve. He doesn't even move that great on this surface. Looks very awkward. The speed of the court helps him a lot.

At least He seems focused today - not his best tennis, but He is seemingly trying and runinng down balls, what He sometimes skips.

Paire refuses to hit the routine winner at 4-3 15-15 and makes it tough for himself again.

Pathetic call to start the *4-3 game on a ball that was clearly out. Benoit then fucked himself up the rest of the game, but a 15-0 lead is much different than 0-15.

Benoit's BH from the middle of the second set onwards has really been on fire. That and his first serve are the big difference makers in this match.

Now serving for the match, hopefully he holds without drama.

Paire def. Zemlja 6-7(6) 6-4 6-4

Top 100! Australian Open MD! The final two sets showed when Benoit plays focused and motivated tennis, he's a great talent. So happy for him, and clearly he wanted it so badly.

I'm so happy for Benoit!

Honestly he played pretty bad the whole week but for once he was really motiveted and concentrated!

YES Benoit !! So happy for him. Improved a lot mentally, he didn't frustrate after the loss of 1st set, or when Zemlja broke back in the decider. And he won this tournament without playing very well, so it's very encouraging for next year. Australian Open here we come !!
