Well how about that?
Nole and Muzz have easy straight set wins (I'm assuming -- Muzz/Blah is still in the second set), Rafa plays like shit but survives 5 match points to beat Nico, and Fed is out of Paris at the hands of a teary and bloody Apricot.
Fantastic performance by Julien. I really thought he'd choke when he served for the match at 5-4. But he held his nerves and it was Fed who seemed all out of sorts. The guy looked listless and uninspired. Perhaps those late night feedings are taking their toll?
Or maybe he just wanted out of the tournament so he could celebrate with Marat? All I know is, Roger better throw down his AMEX Black Card for this one. Only the best for Maratski.
