Roland Garros is officially under way. I hope any of you who get to go have fun. And of course take lots of pics. 😉
So far so good as Ferru was able to beat his opponent Marinko Matosevic 6-4, 6-3, 6-4. He did have trouble in the match in keeping his own serve. (He got broken 5 times). Usually the first round of a major can be used as a wake up call. Hopefully the Valencian will be able to play with a more aggressive style which may end up being Albert Montañes.
Speaking of, congrats to Albert Montañes for picking up his sixth ATP title of his career. He beat Gael Monfils 6-0, 7-6 last week. The Spaniard was ranked 80 before winning last week in Nice, but now climbed back up to 47. It is a sweet victory considering he had claimed he wasn’t even going to play the tournament. In fact he had a “day-by-day and match-by-match” attitude and was just happy to be playing in the first place. Yay for him!Marcel and Feli’s match was suspended due to darkness so they will have to pick up from 5-7 6-2 4-6 6-4. A lot of the guys are in action tomorrow. I’ll k.i.t. All the best from me. 🙂
