Murray, Del Potro Join Paris Exodus And Save Energy For London; Ferrer Sets Sights On First Masters Title

Andy Murray and Juan Martin Del Potro both are en route to London after being upset at the Paris Tennis Masters on Thursday. With no week of rest before the Finals, the last two Grand Slam champions left in the field likely opted to join Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer in London instead of slugging it out in France any longer, much to the chagrin of tournament officials.

However, with Murray now in London for the weekend, certainly ATP officials must be pleased to have the Scot available for all the pre-tournament hype and publicity.

Murray’s London return appeared to be on hold as the Scot took the first set and then served for the match at 5-4 in the second against 6-foot-8 giant Jerzy Janowicz. The Pole, who had never beaten a Top 40 player until this week, saved a match point, scratched out a tiebreak then ran away with the third over a disinterested-looking Murray to collect the biggest win over his young career 5-7, 7-6, 6-2.

“I remember I didn’t believe I can win this match” Janowicz said. “I was just thinking to play my best tennis and not to lose 6‑Love, 6‑Love, 6‑Love.

“In the beginning of this year, I had many changes in my life,” Janowicz said. “I changed the racquet. This racquet which I’m using right now is helping me a lot. Even if I have some weak days, this racquet is actually helping me. So this is one change.

“The second one is, I [have] a new fitness coach this year, and he’s helping me a lot. I’m doing a lot of fitness. When I’m at home I’m actually doing more fitness than tennis. So there is this other change. My behavior on the court is also a little bit different. I decided not to give up, whatever the situation is. I’m fighting right now for every single ball.”

Murray, who still has never won the Paris Masters, has curiously blown match points in his last three losses – Milos Raonic in Tokyo, Novak Djokovic in Shanghai and now the Pole. But the Olympic champ knows things will need to improve for next week’s crucial test in London.

“I have to make sure I tighten that up next week if I get that opportunity in the matches,” Murray said. “It had nothing to do with my serving today. I missed groundstrokes.

“Obviously me and Novak lost early this week,” Murray said. “Roger didn’t play, and then I think the rest of the guys are still in here. You never know, maybe the guys that go deep here they’ll have confidence from having a good tournament. But they may arrive a little bit later and might take a while to get used to the conditions.”

Also heading to the exits was Del Potro who had his 11-match win streak snapped by Frenchman Michael Llodra. The lefty, who once beat Novak Djokovic in Paris, hadn’t won a tour match since Roland Garros until this return to the French capital.

“Coming here I knew I was playing well,” said the 32-year-old Llodra. “But now, thinking I would be able to beat Isner and Del Potro, I wasn’t sure. It’s true that the conditions are getting faster, so I served very well today. Del Potro is a good returner, but he couldn’t do anything because I served really well. When my favourite weapon works, then it’s difficult to play against me.”

Also, former champion Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Janko Tipsarevic were winners, and both qualified for the last two spots in London. Tsonga now faces the highest seed remaining, David Ferrer. The Spaniard is seeking his first career Masters title and with the top names out this may be his best chance. Tipsarevic gets Janowicz.

American Sam Querrey prevailed over Canadian No. 1 Milos Raonic who finishes his year disappointingly losing four of his last six matches. Llodra is next for Sam. And Gilles Simon continues to take advantage of Roger Federer’s withdrawal. The smooth Frenchman is into the quarterfinals against 2005 champion Tomas Berdych.

77 Comments for Murray, Del Potro Join Paris Exodus And Save Energy For London; Ferrer Sets Sights On First Masters Title

jane Says:

Wow, I missed everything today: too bad about Murray and Delpo. I wonder who’ll win this? Tsonga? Berdych? They could very well be squaring off in another final. Maybe Ferrer! That would be kind of cool to see him cap a great year with a Masters win.


RZ Says:

Come on Ferrer! He’s the most deserving of the bunch to win a Masters 1000 crown.


jane Says:

Simon has a good record over Berd; that’ll put it to 5-2 now. Oddly I haven’t lost interest in this tournament at all. It’s kind of interesting to see who will come through now, imo.


the DA Says:

It’s weird how Simon’s game troubles Berdy.


Brando Says:

Simon’s through, gladly take that result.

Tipsy should go through.

One of Llodra or Querrey will make SF here.

Then one of Ferrer or Tsonga.

Probably the most strangest last 4 in a MS event in a long, long, long time.


Giles Says:

This JJ character is darn good. Don’t be surprised if he beats Tipsy!!


tennisfansince76 Says:

doesn’t anybody remember JJ from Wimbledon? i seem to remember that he sent international playboy Ernie G. packing in a 5 setter after IPEG got his fans all lathered up by winning in the previous round. JJ looked good doing it. big serve, powerful strokes. then i think he flamed out the next round.


tennisfansince76 Says:

that’s right. Gulbis beat Birdy in the first round. then after poisoning his long suffering fans w/ hope he lost to Janowicz in teh second round.Thank you wikipedia. then JJ lost to Florian Mayer 7-5 in the 5th.


tennisfansince76 Says:

good lord and MTO at this pt. migth as well play the next 2 games, back to the locker room, shower up. go out and have a nice meal in Paris and then get ready to London.


Brando Says:

What happened? JJ was 4-1 up and then he’s out due to retirement.

hope it’s nothing serious, shame really thought he had the match.

very, very unlucky. :-(


Giles Says:

Typical Tipsy – retiring whilst losing!! #unsportsmanlike.


Brando Says:

LOL, got played by atp website- it’s tipsy who retired.


Giles Says:

This JJ guy has beaten Kohlschreiber, Murray and Tipsy. This is no fluke- he is a great player and his drop shot is the best. He might be totally exhausted facing Simon tomorrow.


Brando Says:

@Giles:

Have not seen him yet, but maybe he could be the new guy that everyone is wondering about, i.e. the ONE who shall eventually take over from or contend against fedal + nole + muzza.


Giles Says:

@ Brando. Could be – he is an incredible player, plenty of guts and determination and as I said before his drop shot is super duper. Try and catch some highlights and you will see what I am talking about. Hope he is not in Rafa’s part of the draw anytime soon!! Lol


Tennis Vagabond Says:

This is turning into the ant-WTF: The tours second and third tier players, plus JW Tsonga and Mr Charisma David Ferrer, duking it out at their final event of the year.
What a disaster for the organizers. Good luck to… wait, who are these guys?


Tennis Vagabond Says:

Actually, should be “3rd and 4th tier”


Giles Says:

https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A6t9qsaCUAEkZgI.jpg. Roger’s locker room at WTF. Take note – complete with daffs!!! Lol


Margot Says:

@Tennis Vagabond
If a French guy wins, the organisers and the public won’t give two hoots about whose not there.


alison Says:

WOW Congrats to Daveed Ferrer,as much as i also love Joe im soo pleased for him,he played brilliant,what a warrior,what a fighter,such a nice guy too,now go get the title and give the big guns something to think about ahead of the WTFs,to win the title will give him a big confidence boost at the WTF NEXT WEEK.


El Flaco Says:

Jersy Janowicz reminds me of Lukas Rosol.


El Flaco Says:

It would be crazy if Ferrer’s one and only M1000 title ends up being Paris Indoors.


jane Says:

I am really hoping Ferrer gets it, but there are two Frenchies left – Simon, and Llodra, who is in a first set tiebreak as I write – so seeing one of them win would be kind of cool too. Mind you I like Sam, too. ha ha.

Margot’s right, though: no one in Paris will care too much who is/is not there if one of their own guys wins it!


Wog boy Says:

Good on ya Daveed.
He shoul take this one, the only one I am worried is that Polish dude, but than again I cannot see him beating so many top 10 or so players on one single tornament.
Go Daveeeed Go :)


Brando Says:

Llodra looks a tough one for Daveed then maybe Simon (homeboy) and the polish surprise package, JJ.

I really hope daveed wins this one- i’m more nervous for him than i have EVER been for rafa or muzza!

fight all the way daveed!


RZ Says:

Earlier this year I think just about everyone was rooting for Andy Murray to win the US Open since they felt he had paid his dues and deserved a slam title. Seems like now everyone is rooting for David Ferrer to win Paris for the same reason. I hope he can do it!


Wog boy Says:

Do I have feeling that this blog was never as unified as now when it comes to one particular player wiining?:)


Wog boy Says:

Ok, I missed to mention Andy;)


Brando Says:

@WB:

LOL, this is an ALL TIME PEAK!:-)

Such a happy blog- see world, even TX can be joyful and happy place on occasion! :-)


Wog boy Says:

“ALL TIME PEAK”

Well said:)


Brando Says:

LOL, WB.

Llodra’s through- he’s a tricky opponent for Daveed IMO, with his variety and also the noisy, loud home crowd support.

The SF will be like a final for Daveed tomorrow, very tough. I hope not…..


RZ Says:

Wog Boy, I think so! LOL


RZ Says:

“It would be crazy if Ferrer’s one and only M1000 title ends up being Paris Indoors.”

El Flaco – stranger things have happened in tennis! (Conchita Martinez – only grand slam final and win was Wimbledon!)


Wog boy Says:

Brando,

I am not worried about crowd, every Spaniard knows what to expect in Paris, I mean if they are going against seven time winner of FO, the others cannot expect any better.
I don’t think Llodra is good enough to stop Ferrer even with his S&V and crowd with. His H2H is also 2:0, so no worries for Daveed in SF.
I don’t want to sound bias but I cannot stand that spectator with drum or what ever they call that instrument, he is coming year after year, you are not allowed to bring that thing in Sydney or Melbourne for tennis match, no way. As the matter of fact I don’t remember seeing it anywhere else.
I am trying to imagine traditional Serbian brass bend blasting at Serbia Open:)


alison Says:

Nice to here Daveed has quite a fan club on this forum,and like Brando says nice to here everyones in agreement for a change,no bickering or name calling,lets see how long it lasts lol,i have to say Daveed Ferrer is just about the nicest male tennis player on tour,no whinging,whinning,no ego,just a normal humble guy who enjoys playing tennis win or lose,go get the title Daveed you deserve it.


Brando Says:

@Wog Boy:

Completely agree re the drum- friggin’ hate it! annoys me each and every time I hear it.

Re ferrer: i think your right, it’s just that I have this uneasy feeling about it all, and this MS has been very strange in its results so far.

I hope you are proven correct about it all.


Kimberly Says:

I think it ferrer will play two back to back frenchies. Why did tipsy retire?


Wog boy Says:

Kimberly,

Officially dizziness, I read it on the other site.

I haven’s seen the match so I don’t know if he was wobble or not but looking at the result I would say he was :)


Alok Says:

Tips could have waited to retire. It was just 2 more games before the match ended. The retirement was very unsportsmanlike, IMO, not allowing Janowicz to serve it out.

Anyone else thinks JJ looks like a combo of a young Safin and T-Berd. Nose up Safin, mouth shin down, T-Berd.

Too bad Sam lost, another round and he’d be gaining some serious ranking points.


Alok Says:

I meant *chin* not shin.


Margot Says:

@Wog boy
That drum reminds me of the Vuvuzela we heard so much at the world cup in S. Africa. Crikey, imagine if THAT got smuggled into Wimbledon!
Joining in the David appreciation society here. Am sure he has the best chance too. Though confess would not be very upset if Simon sneaked it. Has he won a 1,000 yet? Don’t think so.
Eek, if those two meet in the final they’ll still be playing sometime into next week…..;)


Wog boy Says:

Margot,

If Vuvuzela got smuggled into Wimbledon, that person would have chance to blow it only once ;)

“Crikey”, I haven’t heard that one for a long time, brings back Steve Irwin memories:(


Margot Says:

@Wog boy
U think those elderly “bouncers” at Wimbles can move that fast do u? Hmm…;)
Love old words like crikey, cripes, blimey, blighter, bounder, cove etc. Most are Anglo-Saxon in origin, I think.
Of course many were, at the time, as shocking as our swear words.


Wog boy Says:

Margot,

Few years back, when I used to do more overland and inland trips, I loved to duck in a country town local pub and enjoy drink and listen to locals who probably came here with Captain Cook or just after him :) and still speak that old, I would call it, Anglo-Irish-Saxon English. They would be able to speak for hours in the same voice over the beer and they would walk out of pub in same way …no hurry… no worries.
You cannot hear that in the big city anymore. What was interesting, regardless off them being sheep farmers, cattle farmers or just sheep sheerers, they all had nice manners, swear words were not aimed at anybody and they didn’t sound bad like when city slickers use to use them. They would pick my accent but I never ever had any bad experience with them, and I have crossed the country from Perth to Sydney and Adelaide to Melbourne and all the way up to Cairns, huge country :)


Margot Says:

Wog boy,
Gr8 memories, thanx 4 sharing.
Accents are fascinating, as well as language. eg In Uk, on TV, someone who is a bit stupid is often given a Brummie(Birmingham)or West country accent.
Villains usually have Essex/South London accents. Think Ray Winstone or that Vince something or other.
Lol I could write a book :)


volley Says:

the draw is out for WTF. Andy/Nole/Berdy/Tsonga in one group; Fed in the easier group, by far. once again the gods look down on him.


the DA Says:

hahaha, Fed will be laughing about that draw. The other group will be a bloodbath.


gannu Says:

my god wat a draw for my GOD whom i am going to see him play live for the first time in my life ;-)…Gods have been smiling on him..feddy bear got lucky,he better thrash everyone and reach the final and win this


the DA Says:

Murray v Berdych Mon afternoon, Djokovic v Tsonga at night. Federer will be Tues afternoon.


Kimmi Says:

WooooW!! How impressive is this guy. serving for the match now…

He is a qualifier this week, right?


Kimmi Says:

He got it!! and he is crying!! very emotional. Great to see something like this. Hope he wins tomorrow….


boss Says:

the DA:

where did you find this schedule?


volley Says:

yes, he’s the next big thing. we’ve had a number of ‘next big things’ the last few years, all for nought. let’s wait and see what happens early in 2013, especially at the AO. see how he does in best of five.


the DA Says:

@ boss – on the ATP twitter feed:

https://twitter.com/ATPWorldTour


the DA Says:

Tues: Federer v Tipsy (1.45pm) then Ferrer v Delpo (7.45pm)


Margot Says:

Ops, don’t think French are going to get their champion….


Giles Says:

After seeing the WTF draw Fed could easily have finished the year end No. 1 !!!! #justsaying


Giles Says:

As for this JJ guy, he seems like the business! Where on earth did he spring from???


volley Says:

interesting reply by Simon in his presser to whether he thinks Janowicz is destined for the top-10. “I want to see him outside in the wind, hitting 160 km/hr on the line, will they land in”?

i agree with Simon. Let’s see if he can do it outdoors before hyping him up too much.


grendel Says:

Interviewed after the match by the Sky Sports chaps, Janowicz filled up. Try as he might -and Marcus kindly bid him to take his time – he could not overcome the emotional heaves his body was subject to. So he couldn’t answer any of the questions, although he was able to say that he was exhausted, physically and mentally. You do wonder, actually, what he has left for tomorrow.

At any rate, I for one believe I have seen the future. A few weeks ago, Tennislover introduced as a link a thread on this site from about two years ago. I noticed that there, we were discussing who was around who might emerge as a new face. Hopeful murmurs were made about Dimitrov, but there was no sense of conviction. And since then, Dimitrov has inched forward slightly, and one gets the sense that he will become a solid top 20 player, perhaps springing the occasional surprise. Who else? Harrison has shown a nice game, but nothing spectacular. Tomic has undoubted talent, but a hopelessly frail mind. Nishikori and Goffin are wonderful players, but have drawn the short straw from a biological perspective – unfortunately, that matters, consider Oliver Rochus, as talented a player as any of his generation. And then there is Raonic – well, a real find, likely to threaten the top players a la Berdych, but can he go further? His game is a little limited, he’s one of those players you can see snatching a slam but never being particularly dominating.

I do think Janowicz is a different kettle of fish. Consider his attributes. His serve is as big as Isner’s or Raonic’s – he topped 145 mph today, and hit the 140′s fairly often. And his second serve was demonic on occasion, flying out of the reach of Tipsarevic, such was the spin he could impart from his great height, and practically bowling poor old Simon over with the sheer force of it.

With respect to the first set today, if you leave Federer aside I can’t think of anyone with a more potent forehand. It was quite devastating, the ball sent scurrying to all corners of the court. His bh is perfectly serviceable, and he has the makings of a nice slice – this boy is raw, remember, and has much to learn – and he has delightful touch around the net. And – now this is the clincher – he is an excellent mover. He has the advantages of a huge man – 6ft 8 – and few of the disadvantages. And in keeping with this fine movement, he likes to move forward, he’s not rooted drearily to the base line as are so many of the giants.

But then, you have to consider his mind, his attitude. From all I can see, it is excellent. And in more than one way. He is composed, so although he is moving through unchartered waters, he is neither dismayed nor daunted. But it’s all very well powering your way through shell shocked opposition, what about when the going gets a little tougher? Looks good there, too, although he hasn’t been properly tested yet in this tournament.

Even so, there was a change in the second set. His own standard dropped a little, whether through lack of focus or tiredness – remember, as a qualifier, he had played 7 games on the trot. And Simon, a wily old campaigner if ever there was one, had steadied himself, and the match was becoming tight. And one of Janowicz’s favourite shots, the drop shot, was failing at last. Either he misplayed it or Simon (having been bamboozled throughout the 1st set)read it. So what does Janowicz do? Unafraid, he drops Simon to gain the first point of Simon’s service game at 5-5. And he proceeds to break with another drop. That’s a measure of his courage, confidence, what ever. Definitely great composure.

And then finally, Janowicz has desire and presence. He oozes personality on the court, and this is both intimidating for the opponent and a powerful reinforcing factor for himself. All the great champions have this mysterious quality and it is this, as much as anything else, which convinces me that in Janowicz, we at last have a fresh face destined to hit the top ten pretty soon. And yes, I agree with a poster above, Safin very much comes to mind.

Incidentally, Janowicz was unable to play in the Australian Open last year because he couldn’t afford the fare. Absolutely. For the coming Open, he might possibly be a seed. The times, they are a-changing…

Watching Lodra has been great fun. I mean, I found the match with Querry enormously enjoyable. Can you imagine finding Querry – good old, nice old, positively sweet old, solid old Querry – hugely entertaining? As a foil, yes, and he brought out the best in Lodra – shades of McEnroe, my goodness! Why can’t there be more players like him? It’s not impossible. Apparently, when Lodra embarked upon his career, his volleying was nothing special. He just decided for some reason – rather like someone spotting a narrow opening in the market – on cultivating the particular playing style which he has made his own. Part of the excitement lies, of course, in the fact that he is frail. When McEnroe was on song, noone could get near him. Lodra can play out of this world, but you are always uneasily aware that he could fall off the flying pedestal any moment.


grendel Says:

Lodra had ten break points – couldn’t take one. Ferrer had two, pinched the second and won the set completely against the run of play.

And yet, you couldn’t say justice was not served. On some of those break points, Ferrer took big risks – and it was a measure of his skill, as well as his fearlessness, that his gambles paid off. On the other hand, Lodra, whilst playing inventive and most attractive tennis in the main, was unable to change gears when it counted.

And that, I fear, is the game of tennis for you. Ferrer deserves to be ahead and will probably win. But oh, Lodra captures your heart! What lovely tennis. Now, why can’t a really great player produce this sort of tennis, at least sometimes? It’s not just romantic – for sheer shock value (you could see Ferrer shaking his head in bewilderment occaionally; this sort of tennis is so rarely seen)I’d have thought this style of tennis would gain its reward in the hands of a master.

Trouble is, you have to learn it young. The old ones, no matter how good, can’t do it. So we need some enterprising youngsters..


Wog boy Says:

I guess it is eaisier to play relaxed and go for shots when there is no pressure of winning and nobody expect you to win, not even yourself:)
This guy, JJ, is 22 (one week short) where on the earth was he until now, if he can be so good on regular bases. Let us see if Daveed can stop him.
David and Goliath battle, at least looks lake one:)


Wog boy Says:

should say “like” and not “lake”


Alok Says:

@WogBoy, I believe JJ was unheard of due to his lack of finances. He’s playing with natural talent because he didn’t have money to pay a top coach nor enter many slams. Just for that reason alone, it would be nice to see him win some big bucks, which means we’d see more of him, and he can hire a good coach to hone his skills.


Alok Says:

I think it’s difficult for youngsters to learn Llodra’s type of game, due to the game has changed, making it more gladiatorial, and less finesse and/or sublime shot-making. It’s now just brute force that will win


Wog boy Says:

Alok,

I read that part about money and to be honest I am Little bit sceptical about that storry for a reason. He is from Poland, EU member (Polish tennis federation etc etc) not from some third world country and besides there is plenty of tournaments in Europe itself and traveling today even overseas is not as expensive as before, so yes I don’t by it, you have lot of young players with little or no money traveling the world but it sounds nice when you read storry like that in newspaper.


Alok Says:

@WogBoy, maybe I like that story because it plays to my heart strings which pulls for underdogs. I admire poor people who get ahead when they apply themselves to beat all odds.don’t much care for the rich kids who’s got daddy’s money to back them up.


Wog boy Says:

Alok,
That is exactly my point, it does play to lot of peoples hearts and newspaper people know that.
JJ was traveling the world as a junior USO 2007, AO 2008 and so on. He was looked after, had his coach then, educated tennis player by all means …you see where I am heading don’t you ?:)


Alok Says:

@WogBoy, Djokovic publicists also play up his country’s war story. I remember when Ivanovic won the FO, all we heard and read about was how much she suffered and had to practise in a drained swimming pool. Fact is, Ana moved to Switzerland, Djoker to Germany, and Jankovic to US.

The point is, that a lot of those heart-wrenching stories are to gain sympathy.


Wog boy Says:

Alok,

Difference is, those were the facts, his country was in the war and he did spend nights in the bomb shelter and practice tennis in between bomb raids, Ana did practice in the disused swiming pool. Ana found sponsor (some rich swiss man) who signed contarct with Ana, needless to say he got his money back and more than that. Nole’s parents sold everything and rented flat to be able to send him to Germany and still had to keep borowing until Nole started to earn money, they were not as lucky as Ana to find sponsor though they were lookig hard for one.
I don’t really think that this is good comparison with whether JJ has the money to travel or not and I think we are heading in the wrong direction so better to finish the discussion now. Thanks


Queen Says:

Juras Janowicz z kadze ty sie wziol? Nikt o tobie nie slyszal a ty taki talent rodaku:)Powodzenia ziomku!


andrea Says:

well, who would have guessed ferrer and janowicz in the final? nice mix up. looking forward to it!


laslo Says:

Wog boy
What about the ocker accent? Do you know much about it?


Wog boy Says:

Laslo,

Ocker accent :) well, if you ask than you probably know, it is still around you can hear it depend where you go, it is rough and tough accent but not mean. You can hear it in outback but you can hear it in western Sydney pubs or Roadhouses used by truckies but will not hear it in Eastern or Northern suburbs. I don’t mind it because I mix with different people and I am not shy to have a drink with people using ocker accent, they are hardworking and honest people there are the other ones too:) if you are not looking for trouble you will not get one.
Unfortunately you cannot post here using that accent, can you?;)


laslo Says:

I was visiting the Blue Mountains one time and ate in a little town called Katoomba.A friend mentioned that the waitress was an ocker. It reminded me of a Crocodile Dundee accent. Is a bogan the same thing?


Wog boy Says:

I had to check for that one with my friend who is true blue Aussie, he doesn’t consider it same and I know why but it is hard to explain so I leave it there.
About Katoomba, it is alternative place to live for lot of people, very cheap to live for young people on the doll, or doing something else, it use to be also methadone treatment (was before), jump on the train to Sydney so yes you can say quite a few bogans. You should go to Leura for lunch, much nicer place, a few minutes away from Katoomba. But I know, you came to Katoomba to experience the steepest railway in the world and to see the rock formation called “Three sisters”.


laslo Says:

Thanks for the tip, Wog Boy. The next time I get to Australia I will be on the look out for Leura and ockers.
