That was rather anti-climactic, wasn’t it?

After two sets of head-to-head ball crunching on Friday suspended by darkness, Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin del Potro resumed their battle on Saturday at Roland Garros, where the no-nonsense Serb rolled past the Argentine in the last two sets by the score of 6-3, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 in approximately 80 minutes.


“I was managing to control my game a little bit better today than I did yesterday,” said Djokovic, who improved to 40-0 on the season, and 42-0 stretching back to 2010. “I think that resulted with the win.”

While the world No. 2 managed a stiff challenge, the world No. 1 Rafael Nadal rolled past Croat Antonio Veic 6-1, 6-3, 6-0. Afterward the Spaniard fielding media questions as to whether he has gotten his game back on track.

“Solutions don’t come from heaven,” Nadal said. “I mean, you can’t change everything in one day. And you know what? I had not forgotten how to play tennis for a week, but I played better today.”

Djokovic will next face Richard Gasquet, while Nadal will next face Ivan Ljubicic, who was impressive Saturday in steamrolling Spaniard Fernando “Mild Sauce” Verdasco in straight sets.

Ljubicic says he knows he will be facing a more vulnerable version of Rafael Nadal.

“There is no question that his confidence is shaken,” Ljubicic said. “You see him in the lockerroom. He’s saying it. He’s not hiding it.”

Also winning third-round matches on Saturday were No. 4 Andy Murray straight-setting German Michael Berrer, No. 5 Robin Soderling beating Argentine Leo Mayer in straights, No. 18 Gilles Simon upsetting No. 10 Mardy Fish in straights, and No. 15 Viktor Troicki topping No. 23 Alexandr Dolgopolov in four.

In all-unseeded action Colombian Alejandro Falla defeating Lukas Kubot in four, and Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela topping Czech Lukas Rosol after dropping the first set.

Matches to look for Sunday at Roland Garros include (2) Novak Djokovic vs. (13) Richard Gasquet, (3) Roger Federer vs. (14) Stan Wawrinka in an all-Swiss, and (7) David Ferrer vs. (9) Gael “Force” Monfils.

On the women’s side, Saturday at Roland Garros was the demise of the giant killers.

Dutch former junior No. 1 Arantxa Rus, who burst onto the international tennis radar when she knocked Kim Clijsters out of the event a couple days ago, was demolished 6-1, 6-1 by Russian veteran and No. 25 seed Maria Kirilenko. Likewise American Vania King’s run was ended, also the last American exiting the women’s draw, when she was dismissed 6-4, 6-2 by No. 9 seed Petra Kvitova.

One upset-minded player advanced into the fourth round on Saturday when Russian Ekaterina Makarova ousted No. 16 seed Kaia Kanepi 6-4, 7-5.

Other Top 10-seeded winners in third round play were No. 4 Victoria Azarenka topping No. 30 Roberta Vinci, No. 6 Li Na defeating Romanian Sorana Cirstea, and No. 7 Maria Sharapova beating Taipei qualifier Chan Yung-Jan, all three matches in comfortable straight sets.

“She started really well and it took me a few games to adjust, because she has a little bit of an unusual game but very, very solid for clay,” Azarenka said of Vinci. “I think I adjusted really well and really started to dominate.”

No. 12 Aggie Radwanska advanced by stopping No. 21 Yanina Wickmayer in straights, and the dancing No. 15 Andrea Petkovic outlasted No. 24 Jarmila Gajdosova in three.

Singles matches on Sunday are (5) Francesca Schiavone vs. (10) Jelena Jankovic, (3) Vera Zvonareva vs. (14) Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova, (11) Marion Bartoli vs. Gisela Dulko, and (13) Svetlana Kuznetsova vs. (28) Daniela Hantuchova.

Kuznetsova, who has taken on former French Open champ and fellow Russian Anastasia Myskina as part of her coaching team, clarified for the media that she will still be keeping her main coach Larisa Savchenko.

“The thing is, I said Anastasia was going to help me, and I see in the press everywhere Myskina is the new coach,” said the animated Kuznetsova. “It’s not like this. I mean, I know you guys [find it] boring in the press. You have to sell newspapers. Probably you don’t have big stories, so that’s why you put this. She got scared, poor girl. I mean, come on. She just helps us, Larisa and me!..She’s good friends with Larisa. She wanted to come to Paris. She makes us company and good atmosphere…I respected her as a player before, and as a personality. She can explain things. She knew exactly how to play tactically and was very smart on the court, so I think I can learn from her. And she can tell me what to do when I am, for example, back in Moscow. This is where I have been struggling, because Larisa is not there. I don’t want to practice alone…Anastasia can do good exercises and follow up with me.”

309 Comments for Djokovic Wins, Faces Gasquet; Schiavone v Jankovic Sunday at French Open

Kimmi Says:

“David Ferrer has not dropped his serve”

really? wow! i think federer has not dropped his serve too. But this does not mean anything..


Eric Says:

Fed dropped his first service game to Teixerira, actually – so at least once, although I think that’s it. But it’s true, it means nothing – after all, Rafa dropped his serve against Veic just thanks to a few horrible errors, but it doesn’t mean he’s in some sort of dark place in his tennis game right now, it was just a blip in the middle of a streamrolling.


Kimmi Says:

“ESPN commentators laughing that Roger Federer again on Friday had no questions from journalists in English in his post-match conference. No Americans in the Top 10, no American journalists in the press room.”

what? americans are not the only nation that speaks english so your reasoning doesn’t make sense.


Kimmi Says:

oh yeah, i forgot about maxime teixerira..ha-ha what a name. still it is impressive for ferrer. he is been on a roll this clay season..losing only to hot rafa and djoko. he pulled out of rome with a virus, so that won’t count. if he gets to play fed, it will be a tough one for fed.


Huh Says:

M surprised Nadal didnt think about two year system during 2008 or 2009 when fed was No.1 and he was no.2. Now that nole’s threatening hid no.1 position n he’s in danger of losin it, nadal suddenly’s becomin concernd n determind to implement 2 year rankin system for longevity of players’ career. Really Rafa??? Huh!


scineram Says:

I don’t buy there were no english questions.


Kimmi Says:

zvonareva taking her frustrations to the ball kid..not nice.


Kimmi Says:

montanes looking good at the moment


Kimmi Says:

Pavlyuchenkova had her match point come and go. zvonareva fighting.


Kimmi Says:

match point again for another upset..


Kimmi Says:

ah she goes long…ok, she gets another chance.

third match point


Kimmi Says:

and there it is. Pavlyuchenkova wins. first time i see her play in a full match, her weight of shots was giving zvonareva problems. decent FH and BH.

french open for WTA is soooo open this year. who will take it?


Kimmi Says:

The battle of the swiss coming up..

Go Fed!


Kimmi Says:

montanes was cruising but now he manages to bring fognini back to this match, are we going for fifth set?


madmax Says:

Come on Fed!

Work hard and let’s get it done!

Warwinka is no easy opponent.

Roger knows he’s got to get on top of Wawa early. His backhand is one of the best in the game and he is great in his long rallies.

Fed apparently been working on his drop shots in practise this morning.


madmax Says:

Fed won the toss and gave it to Stan!!!!!!


Van orten Says:

Go fed ..no drama yet pls..it is subday morning ..no need to wake up the neighbours


Kimmi Says:

fognini levels the match..we go to a decider.


Kimmi Says:

lets go fed.


madmax Says:

Federer v warwinka.

Fed just described as ‘the most attractive player on the court’ and the best player ever’.

Fed chose the side and warwa had the choice of serving but chose to receive.

Lundgren said stan recovered quickly against Tsonga so should be no after effects.

Got to be aggressive, I feel today.


Daniel Says:

Wow,
they are showing some Federer stats in Grand slams. I think if he plays untill 2013 he will break the record of all time grand slam match wins and possibly all time wins in each particular Grand Slam. He is 12 matches away from Vilas record in Roland Garros, he already is the player wiht most wins in Australia.

Truly amazing!!


Kimmi Says:

battle of the singe handed backhand, wawa with more pace.


Daniel Says:

Federer’s forehand is on fire today!


Kimmi Says:

break..great start so far. let goooooo!


Kimmi Says:

beautiful BH slice down the line..


Daniel Says:

A shot you don;t see everyday: slice passing shot down the line.
Haven’t seen a unforced error so far by Fed apart form the DF.


Kimmi Says:

c’mon fed..leaking the BH there.

wawa looks a little chunky in my eyes, he needs to lose some weight a little. too heavy on court.

fed found the serve to save himself out of 15-30 hole. great slice BH, while turning backward. great variety from the maestro.


madmax Says:

Love watching federer play. He is awesome. So beautiful to watch.

Please play until you are 50 years old Fed!

Am also a big fan of stan.


Kimmi Says:

again fed found big serve when he needed it. set point. wawa hits long and fed wraps up the set.

C’mon fed! i am expecting wawa to play better in the second set.


Kimmi Says:

wawa fights to hold. now fed’s turn to serve


Kimmi Says:

break! great variety from fed. love the BH spins on that game.

madmax – i am with you. fed please play until you are 50 :)


Kimmi Says:

FED!! great crosscourt FH.

wawa is rushing now!


Kimmi Says:

montanes was 5-2 in the fifth set..i looked at the score again, its 5-5..

fed breaks again..wawa with no chance in this set.


Kimmi Says:

becoming too easy for fed. aaargh, wawa, should give a challenge!! fed needs a challenge please.

c’mon wawa!


Daniel Says:

Federer is playing very smart, varying his shots a lot, spins, power, changing sides, slices. He knows exactly how to play Wawa and disrupt his rythim.


Kimmi Says:

wawa with 2 big serves..just what he needs. he holds. fed to serve for the second set..


Kimmi Says:

EASY second set! Fed too good for wawa today. lets see what wawa will bring in the third..

fognini and montanes on still on serve


Kimmi Says:

ah, bad miss on the passing short fed. wawa hold with big serve.


Kimmi Says:

ooops fed 0-30 for the first time..chance for wawa?


Kimmi Says:

wooooo going for too much, wawa with 2 break point

big serve to save one


Kimmi Says:

FH long from fed on another…break!

ah, not like this fed, wawa came back against tsonga after 2 sets down


Daniel Says:

Fed in his usual walkabouts. Seems he likes to make his life harder this past 2 years!


Kimmi Says:

federer is missing a few shots now..going for too much. needs to relax.

wawa 3-0 in the third


Kimmi Says:

aaaah, bad miss on the volley!


Kimmi Says:

fognini/montanes still at it 8-8 in the fifth


Kimmi Says:

federer righted the ship, he needs to break back now


Kimmi Says:

wawa playing well, were was he from the beginning? c’mon fed


Daniel Says:

Wawa got lucky when 15-30, he send a ball up and landed in the baseline, next he had a perfect backhand down the line to set the point. Even so, Fed with break point.


Kimmi Says:

BREAK! great return from fed, i think it hit the baseline..back on serve. go fed!


Daniel Says:

Montanes is mad cause he can finish an ailing Fogini who is hardly walking, he can’t bend anymore.


Kimmi Says:

mantanes had a match point..it came and went. now he is 0-30 on his serve.

fed please hold


Daniel Says:

Wow, Fogini will serve for the match on 9-8 fighting cramps in nis left thigh.


Kimmi Says:

daniel – i am not watching that match, just following the score. so fornini is injured?

well, he has two breaks points now to break


Kimmi Says:

ha-ha i see fognini breaks, can he serve it out.

fed with couple of errors here..c’mon


Kimmi Says:

wawa hitting big now.


dari Says:

Fab Fognini!!!!!


Kimmi Says:

fognini with 2 match points


Kimmi Says:

fognini wins..ha-ha how will he have a chance against the winner of djokovic and gasquet??


dari Says:

ALLEZ ROG


Daniel Says:

Yes Kimmi, Fogini had cramps in 5-5. He though much point down not walking and Montanes didn’t move him around the court. He start banging the ball and everything was in, but he couldn’t serve. I think the line judge calles 5 foot fault. Very dramatic and the crowd divided: some thought he was making a scene and some calling his name. Plus the French won’t forget last year agaisnt Monfils and that controvertial match due time.


El Flaco Says:

Epic choke by Montanes. Lenglen is way behind schedule now. If the next 2 matches take a combined 5 hours including the transition time then Hantuchova/Kusnetsova won’t make it on Lenglen. Looking at the matchups I can easily see that happening. I wonder if they will move it to another court.


Eric Says:

Kimmi….Fog/Mont never had a chance, it’s a farce to pretend that it will be a “match” now. Maybe he will be able to play for all three sets if he’s lucky.


Kimmi Says:

El Flaco – somebody was saying they should put the women match last..ha-ha..now they have done it.

fed missed a break chance, he gets another..go fed


Kimmi Says:

fed breaks! great. looks like a straight set finish..

great comeback in the third by fed.


Kimmi Says:

c’mon fed..no errors. serve it out pls


El Flaco Says:

The quarterfinals aren’t until Wed if my scheduling memory is correct so Fognini has 72 hours until he plays again. Djoko and even Gasquet would still be the big favorite in that match regardless of Fognini’s condition.


Van orten Says:

Vintage fed today…flawless


Kimmi Says:

@eric, i agree!


Daniel Says:

Fed playing very clean tennis. He wanted to finish beautfully, serve and volley, since he couldn’t go with an ace!:)


Daniel Says:

27 straight Grans Slam quarter finals!!


dari Says:

Awww, Stan almost got a set.
Allez Rog :)


Kimmi Says:

ACE! to finish the match.

I love it wawa was able to give fed a challenge in that third set. fed answered! very impressive performance. great variety. Good luck in the next round rog.


Daniel Says:

Not 27, 28!


El Flaco Says:

Ha ha Kimmi. If the matches are long enough the order doesn’t matter. It’s just a question of who gets the short end of the stick in scheduling. If the Jankovic match is over in 1.5 hours and Ferrer is done in 2 hours then having the women’s match last will work out ok. Otherwise I think they will make a decision some time during the Ferrer match and move Hantuchova to Court 1.


Dory Says:

This will be his 28th consecutive GS QF!!!!!

Must read book: How to play effortless and efficient tennis by Roger Federer


Skeezerweezer Says:

Very efficient match for Fed. Low UE’s & high BP conversion. He is playin great tennis right now. Thinkin beyond the FO here, if he continues to play like this he will be extremely tough at Wimby.

Go Fed into the Qtrs!!


tfouto Says:

Federer played really well… i think he will have no trouble with Ferrer… But as good as he’s playing Djoko should get to the final.


Kimmi Says:

ha-ha, they are showing the end of fognini and montanes. OMG, the guy cant move. Didn’t they review the rules for cramping, i think i read that you cant call a trainer. i see fognini calls a trainer at 15-30. gets a rub, and then goes back to play.

how many match points did he save? 3!! montanes will kill himself for that loss.


tfouto Says:

Federer played ‘perfectly’ except for around two games… the break and one or two games after…

he just need to perfect that mental up’s&down’s.

He’s backhand was pretty good today. when he makes BH down the lines regulary its a sign he’s cofident with his backhand.


Kimmi Says:

djokovic breaks already..gasquet needs to play well today..


Duro Says:

Break in the very start…

Backhand diagonal at his best from Novak…

0:1…


Eric Says:

Djokovic already up a break.. :(

But Schiavone too!


Duro Says:

Kimmimmissimo,

Fed rolling again…

I am always seeing you in the semifinals, at least…


Duro Says:

Any info on Murray?


Eric Says:

Hooray Gasquet!


Duro Says:

Oh boy…


blank Says:

Gasquet in a Casket.


Eric Says:

Schiavone serving at 5-1 now. When she can actually string together a few UE-free points, my god is she amazing!


Kimmi Says:

durossimmo..if djoko wins today, i think he will have a walkover in the Qtrs, did u see fognini match?

fed has a tough one next..ferrer or monfils will be tough..


Kimmi Says:

eric – yes she is, i am watching that match now on the streaming. she has too much spin for other girls to feel uncomfortable.


Dory Says:

What suddenly my comments are not appearing?


Duro Says:

Of course I did, Kimmi.

Nole doesn’t need a walkover from Fognini, though…


Duro Says:

Dory, India fixed your ADSL finally :-)!


Eric Says:

Djokovic defends a double break point, nice; meanwhile, Francesca can’t seem to close this out…bouncing around deuce.


Van orten Says:

Ferrer nor Monfils should be problematic if fed keeps playing like this…monfils still doesnt know how he won indoors in paris last fall…so as long as santa fed doesnt show up , he wins comfortably


Kimmi Says:

djokovic so good at saving break points now-a-days..


Eric Says:

Well, Jankovic manages to break back; now Schiavone will probably just re-break again for a 6-2 win… hopefully, anyway. :)

Van Orten, is Federer plays well (not brilliantly, just well), he’ll beat Ferrer (I would assume Ferrer can triumph over Monfils) in straight sets. Otherwise it could be a slog. So I agree.


Duro Says:

Will Troicki get a walkover, Kimmi?


El Flaco Says:

Sometimes in women’s tennis the break is the hold and the hold is the break.


Eric Says:

Well, or not. Error-strewn Schiavone is back. Can she serve for the set this time? Dun dun dun….


Kimmi Says:

jj is starting to play well, schiavoni findind difficult to close this set


Eric Says:

Gasquet is playing really, really well. It’s too bad he dropped that first game and couldn’t convert any of those bps. If he keeps this up without the lapses in focus, he should be able to snag at least a set…


jamie Says:

Nole is the GOAT.

He will win all 4 slams this year.


Eric Says:

Actually, the fact that Gasquet (playing at this level) is holding his own vs Nole gives me a lot of hope for Roger. Their SF will be super-tight, for sure, eh?


BlackCat Says:

Where Can I watch the match.
Its not on ESPN3.
Which TV channel. Please.


Kimmi Says:

@ eric, let hope so. those 3 loses to djokovic makes me think fed does not have a chance..


Daniel Says:

Agree, Gasquet is playing really well. More credit to Djoko, seems he found a perfect range in his return game. He only not return the ace like serves.


Eric Says:

BlackCat, it’s on the Tennis Channel. You can also watch it streaming (for free) from their website: http://www.b2livetv.com/flashplayer/frenchopen.html


Kimmi Says:

schiavoni double faults to be broken..


Van orten Says:

We have to realize that of course fed has a chance vs nole..he didnt lose 6:0 6:0 last 3 matches and had always chances. By the way gasquet can still win today


gregoire Says:

jamie,

OK, Nole is the GOAT. Tomorrow is school, so now get back to studying or go play with other kids.

You are destroying your childhood by spending too much time on mature sites like this. I feel sorry for you.


Eric Says:

Meanwhile, Schiavone’s consistency has evaporated, giving her trouble at the end of the first set. Then she flubbed bp(s?) in JJ’s first service game in the second, and then dropped her own. Guess this set will be a slog, then.


Kimmi Says:

djoko did not see gasquet drop shot coming..must be a good one.

now, stop those errors reshaaaard


Duro Says:

Van orten, naaaah…


Kimmi Says:

too many errors from schiavoni. she is now 0-3 down the the second.


Maso Says:

Damn, Gasquet’s playing really well today. Should be a rather interesting match.


Kimmi Says:

in this match i see djokovic very relaxed. not like in delpo match, he was raising his hands, speaking to himself etc.

I think he knows, gasquet wont really trouble him.


Eric Says:

Jankovic is playing very solidly now, not at all like in the first set. And Schiavone is just giving away so many points. She needs to hold here, and fast, not get drawn into another stupid error-fest for 10 points only to drop serve again like last time…


tfouto Says:

Game over.


El Flaco Says:

Gasquet imploded in that last service game – broken at love.


Eric Says:

She finally held. Hopefully this will switch the momentum around a bit.


Duro Says:

Cobranole…


Van orten Says:

Hahaha no one aplauding for the djoker…he simply doesnt give a,..wow


Skeezerweezer Says:

Sad Gas lost all confidence in is FH


Kimmi Says:

i knew it. djoko was just waiting for his chanes..gasquet going for too much.

djoko breaks. this is the second set. since that first set, gasquet has not really threaten djoko serve.


tfouto Says:

Djojo is playing relaxed and without making an great effort…


Kimmi Says:

aah, we are back on serve. schiavoni breaks back.


Eric Says:

Gasquet is basically giving up here. No real effort… Not that I blame him. On to the next set…


Kimmi Says:

and she is broken back..roller coaster


Eric Says:

Meanwhile Schiavone dropped another service game, even though I think she was up 40-30 at one point. But making inroads on JJ’s attempt to go up 5-2 already. This set is a massive error-fest!


Dory Says:

In the women’s shame game, hold really is break and break is serve a LOT of times.


Eric Says:

…and then she almost breaks back to love, only to lose the next four points in a row. This is madness, I say!


Dory Says:

Djoko’s return ability and backhand is now I think the best ever of all players.


Eric Says:

This is so painful to watch. Can’t Schiavone string together three good points?


madmax Says:

Hi Duro,

Federer always has chances against the top players. He is playing at an extremely high level right now. Remember, first round was going to be *tricky*. I really think fed is in a good place.

But I don’t look too far ahead. always got to take things carefully, matchwise, now we are coming to the business end of the tournament.

Fed has made the QF’s. That’s brilliant., really happy and really want more for the fed. Would be wonderful for him to reach the Semis. No less than he deserves. He’s kept his matches short and very sweet. Stan the man, came up with a great third set, which did not surprise me. He has been playing some great tennis this season with Llundgren.

Nole is still the man of the moment. We shall see what happens from QF’s onwards. Someone has to snap his swing, why not roger? There’s a game befroe that one though.

Fognini doesn’t stand a change aginst novak. He must be filled with Glycogen phosphorylase right now, flooding his system with those cramps –

He needs a couple of days off, it would be like running marathon then running another one straight after, playing novak.

I think Roger has pitched it right for the moment.


Kimmi Says:

sciavoni has lost it..too many errors! lets hope she comes back in the third..this set is done already


Kimmi Says:

gasquet broken..bye bye gasquet. congrats nole for 43 straight wins


Duro Says:

“the women’s shame game…”

How wouldn’t it be shameful when the only four women that really can play tennis are not playing it now?

Two Williams, Kim and Henin….


Eric Says:

Schiavone went from 15 winners, 10 unforced in the first set to 10 winners, 16 UEs in the second. And JJ also started playing much better – over twice as many winners, and just 2 more UEs. They’ve combined for 59 UEs out of 149 total points (44% errors)…


Duro Says:

Maxi, hi there…

Man of the moment? That moment lasts for quite some time now… :-))

And what a play this is? Too much…


Dory Says:

2 of them can’t play great either. Justin “can’t serve” Henin, Kim “can’t control unforced errors” Clijsters. The Williams of course were GREAT, simply AMAZING when they arrived years ago but their form has been continuously fading away. Not necessarily because of injury.


Kimmi Says:

JJ holds. match very tight now. schiavoni needs to hold to stop the bleeding.


Duro Says:

Oh boy… I’m blushing…


Dory Says:

Commentators calling Djoko “The Machine”. LOL


Daniel Says:

Guys, really, this is Djoko’s tourney, unless Fed decides to have an A+ day. NAdal won’t stand a chance. Never say I will say this in RG.

Novak is just sublime. When you think the other guy can show some resistance, all of a sudden he manages a 6-1, 6-2 set, agaisnt top 10 materail players.


Duro Says:

Nole is absolutely perfect. Peeeeerfect.


tfouto Says:

I agree with you Daniel… Altough i think Gasquet is not really any menace to Djoko of any kind…


Dory Says:

I am very confident about Nole winning RG but when it comes to Nadal and Federer, anything can happen. Those 2 can turn any day into “sublime” day.


Daniel Says:

Anyone heard anything regarding Murray’s ankle?!


Dory Says:

Fognini to be demolished next.


Kimmi Says:

djokovic smiling missing all those match points.

JJ and schiavoni are both playing well so far in this third set..


Eric Says:

Schiavone continually going up 40-0, 40-15, 0-40, 15-40, w hatever, only to hand away the huge lead and get trapped in deuce-zone. What happened to first-set Schiavone? :(


Kimmi Says:

what! just as i type..schiavoni makes 2 errors to bring JJ to duece


Eric Says:

Gasquet completely giving up again. If only we could combine Wawrinka’s fighting spirit with Gasquet’s talent… oh wait, that would just be ROGER FEDERER!


Kimmi Says:

Ok she holds! great.

whan was the last time djoko missed 4 match point? he has another 2 here


Kimmi Says:

No match for superman nole. 43 match winning streak and counting….

fognini should just withdraw..there is no match.


Dory Says:

Doesn’t everyone recognize the Serena line judge by now? She’s there now lol at Lenglen (Jankovic-Schiavone) match.


Kimmi Says:

schiavoni breaks. Now..big question..can she hold?


Eric Says:

Schiavone up a break. She seems to be trimming down on the errors in this set; she nearly broke JJ’s last two games too.

And no, Fognini shouldn’t withdraw. He has an entire day to rest and do physio. He’s into the quarterfinals, which is about three rounds further than he’s ever been in a slam before… of course he’s going to try to get even further.


jane Says:

I have never said this, although others have: Nole is just too good of late. He finished with something like 41 winners to 14 UEs. Nole dealt with Gasquet’s serve, too, which was excellent through two sets, and he was playing fantastic overall for the good part of two sets. He had the measure of Nole’s second serve for a while there. But Novak really stays focused now. He figures out the way through. I wouldn’t be surprised if he does meditation and/or visualization with that doctor. Something to keep him zoned in. Or maybe it comes with confidence?

Anyhow, Nole finally gets a day of rest after 3 straight against 2 high qualitiy opponents. Amazing.


Dory Says:

I hope they show Ferrer vs Monfils match on TV here after the Schiavone one ends. Instead of Bartoli vs Dulko.


Kimmi Says:

great serve then double faults..she needs to hold here


Kimmi Says:

bad drop shot..jj breaks. back on serve


Dory Says:

Hold is break and break is hold again. Oh Steffi Graf, where are you.


Duro Says:

The streak!!!


Eric Says:

Dory, we heard your sexist comments the first time, stuff it.


Dory Says:

JJ’s forehand used to be flatter last time I saw her. Almost moonballing. BH is good.


margot Says:

Wow Nole looking pretty near damn invincible I’d say and Fed not too dusty either. At least, for two sets Richard gave Nole a bit of a work out, more than can be said for Beefy Boy.
Richard for breakfast, Fognini for lunch and ? for tea ;)


Dory Says:

What sexist comments? I am all for anyone who plays a solid *consistent* game with fundamental techniques correct. Nothing sexist about it I swear.


Kimmi Says:

schiavone needs to hold now


madmax Says:

kimmi, novak has 41 since the beginning of the year. 43 since last year’s davis cup win. Depends what record you are going for. If it’s to beat vilas’ record, then he has 46, which I believe is from the start of the year, meaning novak has 5 to go to match it.

Even so, currently, he matches macenroe and federer at 41, which is phenomenal – no doubt.

duro, I agree, the man of the moments (plural). I hope you don’t have a heart attack through all of this duro – even you couldn’t have foreseen this happening – you should never desert him you know, even when he was playing badly (by his standards), and you were in a very dark place then. He is an incredible player. I really enjoy watching him play.

He doesn’t look up to the sky anymore, shows he has more confidence in his game. I like that.

I don’t know what is happening to Francesca. I really thought she would pull this off. she is going to have to fight for it though. She seems to have lost the pump right now.


Kimmi Says:

oooh, 2 bad errors. danger time


Kimmi Says:

too much spin on that backhand..hold schiavone


margot Says:

daniel and anyone interested, apparently Andy was out on the practise courts today. Good news :) or he’d be on a train home.


Kimmi Says:

JJ swearing i gather..in serbian


Kimmi Says:

margot – yeah great news. he ahs a good draw..so goo andy.

schiavone going for her shots but they go out..great BH there


jane Says:

Good news margot! Yay.i looked all over online and at Murray’s World earlier. But I couldn’t find anything. Also, I like the practice photos there.


dari Says:

Two good point by franki, but I loved that defense and variety from JJ in that 30-0 point


Duro Says:

he he he, JJ is swearing better than I do!


Kimmi Says:

backhand to the net…

lots of adje from jj


Kimmi Says:

aaaarg..what was that?


dari Says:

To supplement margot’s news, from brit tennis writer: “RT @NeilHarmanTimes Light hit for @andy_murray today. No decision. Let’s see tomorrow”
I bet he will give it a go, and hope he is in good shape to win the match and keep going! Pity such a great draw would go to waste!
What a point, schiavone!


Eric Says:

YES! Serving for the set >>>> serving to stay IN the set…. especially when it’s the deciding set. ;)


Kimmi Says:

BREAK! wow schiavone fought in that game. she was rewarded.

now needs to serve out. I mean HOLD!


dari Says:

Though its up and down, this is a fun match. I wish one of these guys wasn’t being eliminated so soon. Love them both, hard not to cheer defending champ.


Kimmi Says:

great first point.


Kimmi Says:

big serve..yeah, two more points


Kimmi Says:

JJ with a great point..


Kimmi Says:

DOUBLE FAULT..nerves. c’mon hold.


El Flaco Says:

Who has a more macho strut, Schiavone or Fognini?


Kimmi Says:

Schiavonen knows how to celebrate. great match it was. still in the tournament, she could win this thing.


Eric Says:

ohhh yeah! She may have wasted 15 break points, but Schiavone just needed one MATCH point! That was SUCH a tight match. Schiavone should have won like 6-1 6-2 on the basis of their forms in the first 6 games but then her erratic nature took over for far too long… To quote Gulbis, I was sh**ing my pants… well done, though, on now to Pavlyuchenkova, that shouldn’t be a tough match for Schiavone.


dari Says:

Haha flaco, those Italians today, huh?!
Good win by frankie!
Gael and David next!


jane Says:

madmax,

Nole is third right now in terms of longest winning streaks straight. He has 43 straight now. Only Lendl (44) and Vilas (46) have more.

Nole is second behind J-Mac only for longest start to a season streak. Nole has 41; J-Mac had 42. So one more match and he ties J-Mac.

He passed Fed’s & Borg’s 41 match streaks when he beat Delpo.


dari Says:

Jane- novak is really blowing my mind right now. Just to let you know ;)


Kimmi Says:

ferrer and monfils warming up. i want to watch that match..


jane Says:

^ Me too Kimmi – should be a cracker. And dari, me too. He is freaking me out, in a good way. :) I liked your “Elaine song” “Get well” for Murray, by the way. Made me laugh.


Kimmi Says:

monfils with 2 break chances but missed them both


dari Says:

Haha, Jane, yes tennis and seinfeld always find each other somehow.
Can’t cheer either David or Gael, just sit back and watch


Eric Says:

Wow, I didn’t watch the Fognini-Montanes match, but I didn’t realize it was this bad. How did Montanes lose so many match points against someone who couldn’t even move???


Kimmi Says:

just checking their H2H. its 2-0 in favour of monfils. played one on clay and hard. last match was davis cup (hard) in 2010 which went to 5 sets.

Ok, i now have the idea..so this match could really go either way..maybe monfils has the edge coz he is won their last meetings.

But ferrer has been great this season. ha-ha almost like the circles we always go re: who is fav. rafa or nole lol!


Eric Says:

Monfils is playing way more solidly than Ferrer….. weird to say that!


Kimmi Says:

If the rallies can be this long..then we have a long match coming.

Monfils breaks. the crowd goes crazy.

ferrer broken for the first time this tournament now.


jane Says:

Monfils versus Ferrer match is going to last 14 hours if all the points are that long! JMac is saying his thing about Monfils again: “one of the best athletes I have ever seen on a tennis court…”


Kimmi Says:

jane – if his head was as great as his athleticism then we would have had another nole.


Eric Says:

Monfils isn’t any more athletic than 90% of the other top 20 or 30…he’s just black (sorry, African-French?).


jane Says:

Ferrer and Wawa kind of remind me of each other; they are both work-man-like in their attitudes. I am cheering for la Monf just a little bit more, although I do like both of these guys. But since Nole took out Gasquet, it would be nice to see at least one Frenchie through to the quarters. Simon is still in it with a shot too, though.


jane Says:

Kimmi, maybe. But Monfils is a little too passive at times. Definitely it is his head, though. Just like with Tsonga. And Gasquet maybe too. All are super talented.


Kimmi Says:

bartoli was 5-2 up..now 5-5 what is going on?


Eric Says:

Monfils is REALLY taking it to Ferrer here. I honestly thought this would be an easy win for David, but it looks like some Gael-force winds are blowing him off course… Okay, sorry, enough punning. I am rooting for Monfils – I agree it would be awesome to have an actual Frenchman go far in the French Open, Jane.


Kimmi Says:

hmm monfils decides to be really aggressive today. two breaks up now


Eric Says:

Wow, hold that thought. Sea change underway? Ferrer suddenly playing hard and solid tennis. Breaks back to 15.


jane Says:

Monfils cannot play from 90 miles behind the baseline.


Kimmi Says:

OK, monfils ferrer is on TV now :)))


Kimmi Says:

dulko retired..bartoli to the qtr.


jane Says:

Baroli is through on a retirement?


marrisv Says:

Wow monfils really cranking up the pace….


Kimmi Says:

la monf really going for big shots.


Kimmi Says:

the serve is good too…what a serving display form la monf. that is how you serve for the set..


jane Says:

Carillo called la Monf “the human highlight reel” :)


Dory Says:

Monfils can be a top 5 player IF HE always plays aggressive and with more strategy instead of being too passive or honestly clueless sometimes.


Miki Says:

Is it only me who thinks something about those streaks is wrong? Novak is 41 to start a season, McEnroe is 42, but the first 3 of his wins are from Masters Cup, which was part of the previous season, but played in January. Now are we talking from the start of the year, or the season? I mean I’m perfectly fine with that, but then we should call it longest star to a year streak. As far as I remember, in the beginning it was 39 for jMac, which makes sense if it counts from the start of the season, not the year.

Anyway, good win for Djokovic, he became very good at shifting gears, when necessary, he raises his game level. He played just enough to win, without spending too much energy, that’s very important for his career . Willander brought that up few days ago, and he said that he did that himself, and that Djokovic is fitter, but he is also good at rational consumption of his energy resources. I always thought that it was one of Fed’s biggest qualities. He wins his service games, and then at, let’s say 4:4 in a set, just raises his game as needed, and breaks, and he gets the set, without exerting himself too much.


jane Says:

Agree Dory: those two things, brain cramps and passiveness. Otherwise, he has it all.


Kimmi Says:

which feed are you watching jane? sounds like you are on ESPN. TSN is showing another feed here.


Dory Says:

The victory Monfils scored over Federer in Paris last year. There also he served brilliantly, returned very well and played AGGRESSIVE.


jane Says:

Fed broke Connor’s record for most quarter final appearances at a slam with this appearance – congrats to him for another record!


jane Says:

Kimmi, yeah, I am watching NBC in HD on the cable box instead. Because when this match began TSN had on ladies.


Kimmi Says:

wow! monfils with 2 good winners


Kimmi Says:

aha, OK jane. that makes sense :)


Dory Says:

It would be very interesting how either of them do against Federer. Cause Monfils won in Paris last time they met and Ferrer has been in top form the clay season. But I still think RF should have no trouble dispatching either of them.


tfouto Says:

Dory Federer will straight sets whoever wins this game… Simple as that…


Kimmi Says:

la monf making few errors here


Kimmi Says:

tfouto – we will have to wait and see. monfils i think will be tougher than ferrer.

grrrrr, monfils suddenly decided to be passive again. why not play like first set?


Kimmi Says:

great pass for la monf to break back. good stuff


Eric Says:

Hantuchova – Kuznetsova are in a first set tiebreak.


Kimmi Says:

i am watching them eric..tough one to call right now.


Eric Says:

Hantuchova had the early minibreak, but Kuzy just won it back. There really isn’t anything to separate them right now. I guess I would go with Kuz’s greater experience but they’re both playing solid and powerful tennis. Maybe nothing spectacular, but very good.


jane Says:

I like Hantuchova’s bright fuscia shoes. It would have been nice to see her pull off another upset and do well. But Kuz will prevail as she is more solid and better overall.

Come on la Monf. Stay focused. Jeepers.


Kimmi Says:

hantuchova was leading with mini break now lost abot 4 straights points


Kimmi Says:

ha-ha hantuchova fights back


Kimmi Says:

monfils and ferrer can hold serve now


jane Says:

Way to go Hantuchova! Nice drop shot to take the first set!!


Eric Says:

And a fantastic drop shot from Hantuchova seals the deal for her…


Kimmi Says:

*can’t*

OMG, hantuchova grabs it..she was almost out in that tie breaker. came back, first set point..she takes it. Good for her..


Kimmi Says:

ferrer just saved a 0-40 game to hold.


jane Says:

It is getting late again. It is around 8:00 pm now, and it looks like this is going at least four sets. I hope for their sake they don’t have to come back tomorrow.


Dory Says:

Monfils “forgot” to be aggressive again.


Eric Says:

People say Ferrer doesn’t have any fearsome weapons, but MAN is he driving the ball hard here. Very powerful and solid tennis. Monfils in danger of losing this set 2-6.


jane Says:

Yes, his brain stopped working, he lost focus, whatever, took his foot off the gas. Now Ferrer is back in the match.


Eric Says:

Awesome point from Ferrer… I love how he forgot to be excited about winning it until 10 seconds later after he had adjusted his shirt.


jane Says:

Ferrer is just more steady. He is playing well. JMac just listed a bunch of la Monf’s injuries – wow so many.


Dory Says:

Really commendable how Ferrer is handling the extra pace Monfils is hitting with every once in a while.


jane Says:

Ferrer breaks, he is whacking that ball and also playing cleverly when he lures Monfils into net,


jane Says:

Kuz with the second set. La Monf breaks back.


jane Says:

Kuz with break in the third.


Kimmi Says:

cross court backhands


Dory Says:

Wow 3rd set is turning into a battle. Very crucial for both. Ferrer I think will win the match.


Kimmi Says:

monfils looks about to fall over. he has not really being playing a lot of tennis. so i don’t think he is as fit as ferrer. ferrer looks like he just started.


Kimmi Says:

hahaha, monfils the show man


jane Says:

9:00. i doubt the will finish the match today. Monfils is always in these “darkness” matches: in 2009 vs Roddick, which he won; last year versus Fognini, which he lost. So he is due for a darkness win if history holds. :)

Speaking of holding, Hantuchova broke back and held.


Kimmi Says:

i see daniela breaks back..

alllez! bad dropper!


jane Says:

Deuce again.


marrisv Says:

Monfils could be more challenging than ferrer for fed and he will have the crowd for him as well. This is one of the more entertaining matches… Every point is a battle


Dory Says:

Ferrer is requiring to play extra aggressive than normal because of Monfil’s incredible defense and if once in a while Monfils plays aggressive, Ferrer can’t handle it. But in the later stages of any match, Monfils returns his natural passive style so I think Ferrer will come through.


Kimmi Says:

ferrer fighting..yeah baby.


Dory Says:

Yes agree marrisv. :) Monfils could trouble Federer more.


Kimmi Says:

major break chances for la monf


Kimmi Says:

la monf breaks…wow!

can he serve it out? federer is probably watching this match..


Kimmi Says:

they will probably stop after this set! getting dark out there


Kimmi Says:

wow! big serves when he needed them


Dory Says:

What a weapon that Monfils serve is.


Kimmi Says:

WOW! serve and volley! didn’t see that coming!


marrisv Says:

NBC is going to show golf now… Unbelievable.


Kimmi Says:

i am worried for the fed now, this monfils serves will kill fed


jane Says:

La Monf has won the third! It is looking like Kuz will win and she has broken and consolidated.


Kimmi Says:

So they still carry on…

I think this is the 5 set match..


jane Says:

All the coverage has stopped? NBC, TSN. Only TSN2 is continuing. I thought they might halt play after that set, but it looks like they will continue in the gloaming.


Kimmi Says:

the thing with monfils, i feel like he will cool off this set and let ferrer back in that match.


Kimmi Says:

drop shot kiss the net..lucky ferrer


Kimmi Says:

kuzy very happy to see hantuchova on the other side of the net. she had struggled a lot with wozniacki.

so..i they still playing?


Dory Says:

I think Outova will win FO again.


marrisv Says:

Kuznetsova won 6-2 in the third… I also think she wins the whole thing.


jane Says:

Wipe out by la Monf but he gives the thumbs up that it isn’t injury number 1xxxxxxx. However, Ferrer gets the break.

Play is suspended. Darn Roland Garros – get some LIGHTS!


marrisv Says:

Looks like they are stopping play with ferrer leading 2-0 in the fourth


Dory Says:

Ferrer breaks for 2-0 in 4th set and play is suspended. Monfils falls down before break point.


Kimmi Says:

break..thi is a 5 set match

re: kutzy i don’t think so…she needs to beat schiavone first..she is playing well too..


Miki Says:

Jane, regarding lights, i think someone here wrote why installing lights isn’t an option. And the explanation was something that the people in the neighborhood wouldn’t be very happy about it, possible lawsuits and all. I think that is just a very bad excuse, because that applies for any stadium and any outdoors sports venue.


Eric Says:

I don’t really know what is around the tennis complex, but the aerial shots they show during set breaks don’t really seem to show any houses around. So I don’t know who would care or why.

But assuming it’s the real explanation, the issue with installing lights probably isn’t the actual lights, but the fact that they would enable matches to go on later… imagine the noise from a crowd watching a nail-biting 5 set match going on until midnight or later, as happens all the time in Australia.


Eric Says:

I don’t know where these journalists get off calling Novak’s win over Gasquet “easy.” Djokovic is right to call BS on them:

“NOVAK DJOKOVIC: I don’t think it’s easy. It’s never easy. I didn’t expect it to be easy. That’s for sure. Maybe the scoreline says differently, but I really– I mean, I had to work, you know. First two sets it was only one break that decided, you know, those two sets. We were winning quite comfortably our service games.”

Take out Richard’s nerve-ridden opening service game, and they were dead level for a set and a half. And Gasquet never made it “easy,” except maybe for a while in the third set.


jane Says:

I agree Eric.


Kimberly Says:

kimmi-you better root hard for monfils, you will probably win the whole thing if he comes through for you!


Kimmi Says:

kimberly – I am worried of monfils now. (thinking of fed) but that will be great to win the bracket challenge again. maybe it will convince me to go to Vegas and use my luck properly :)


Kimmi Says:

monfils was lucky they had to break coz he looked tired to me at the end. he was 40-15 when serving, ferrer came with some great shots..monfils a little passive, before you know it ferrer breaks.

lets see what happens tomorrow. monfils definitely has a bigger game than ferrer, but can he keep his head steady?


Eric Says:

Here’s an amusing interview with Ferrer:

http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/news/articles/2011-05-23/201105231306169477283.html

He just goes through all the Spaniards…


Eric Says:

Actually, all of these little interviews with the players are interesting and, dare I say, a bit cute. This might be the best, with Monfils:

http://www.rolandgarros.com/en_FR/news/articles/2011-05-27/201105271306514558389.html

“To accompany you to the Cannes film festival?
I need a girl! Or multiple girls! I think the best would be to show up on the red carpet with five of them.”


Kimmi Says:

@eric, great interviews. i read ferrer’s few days ago. but thanks for posting la monf. i didn’t see that. ha-ha he is funny.

good buddies with Jo Wilfred it seem


mat4 Says:

@Eric:

They have made a lot of funny interviews. Tsonga is good, LaMonf too. “In the car” is good too, especially with Bartoli. There are some good videos too.


madmax Says:

Nole has 41; J-Mac had 42. So one more match and he ties J-Mac.

He passed Fed’s & Borg’s 41 match streaks when he beat Delpo.

Thanks Jane. Still confused though.

You say Nole has 41, and Fed has 41, so doesn’t that make them equal right now? (since the start of the year?). Not that it matters, because I think Novak is going to break that and at least get to 43.

Then it’s the SF’s and anything can happen then. Have to stay positive. But seriously, Novak is a star. I love the fact that he spoke in French today.

I wasn’t sure why he was looking up the crowd. Was he looking at a poster or something? or trying to read something in serbian?

I couldn’t work it out.

Anyway, really happy with Fed’s result today.

A perfect day.


mat4 Says:

@Jane:

I don’t know what’s happening, but my posts don’t appear. Maybe it is because of the link inside.

It seems that DelPo’s still has problems with his hip. He said it in his last interview, on the page you posted before (sportcampus).


mat4 Says:

… and you were right about it.


tfouto Says:

kimmi no need to be worry for Federer… He will win in straights either Monfills or Ferrer… he’s playing really good. Everything is working. Serve, FH, BH, etc… Federer rarely have everything working. Sometimes the serve is down, the fh, and most often the bh. But today everything was working. He only needs to be focus all the time, that’s the only issue.


jane Says:

Madmax, the difference is between these two things:

1. Straight wins in a row – could be spanning two seasons.
Fed’s was over 05-06 season, and he had 41 straight wins
Nole’s now 43 straight wins are from last seasons DC to now

2. Start of a season wins – only within the samr calendar year.
Fed is not in this running, his longest was 25 or something.
JMac has 42 starting in 1984 through to FO
Nole has 41 starting in 2011 through to now (so the two DC wins dont count)

:)


Kimmi Says:

tfouto – I always worry for federer (silly me) but you are right about playing great today. he mixed it up so well and i think the new balls are taking his slice well..stay very low. wawa was having all sorts of problems with it.

Monfils is a better mover than wawrinka and he seem to be playing well again. so we will see, fingers crossed.


Kimmi Says:

ooops, for all we know it could be ferrer..


Miki Says:

Jane, nobody answered my question regarding the streak. If it’s start to a season streak, then JMac’s streak should be 39, cause first 3 matches of the streak came are from Masters Cup, which was part of the previous season. Not that it’s important, but it’s very confusing. JMac’s has 42 wins if count from the start of the year, but then we should call it longest start to a year streak, rather then longest star to a season streak. Hope that you know what I mean.


Nina Says:

When Kanye West and Robert De Niro are on Novak’s box you know something is shifting in tennis. :)))
