French Open Day 7: Business As Usual

by Jonas Eriksson

Yes, today at Roland Garros it was pretty much business as usual. At least for five time champion and world number one Rafael Nadal who won his match against Antonio Veic, losing only four games.

Djokovic vs Del Potro was resumed and Djokovic resumed business being the invincible man and won today’s two sets 6-3 6-2 against a seemingly frustrated Del Potro. It’s hard to see how anyone except for Nadal can stop Djokovic in this tournament.

Soderling and Simon both won their matches in straights and looked pretty impressive, but although they are both in good form it’s hard to see them throw a spanner in the works of the top three players in the world.

Murray was also in cruise control against Berrer, but later said that he doesn’t feel a hundred percent if he’s going to play the next round due to a lingering injury. Let’s just hope he’s well for the next match.

The oldest player still in the field, Ivan Ljubicic, scored a nice win in three straight sets against Verdasco. Ljubicic’s dominating strokes are very impressive and it’s nice to see him still doing great results on the tour.

Today’s slight letdown, at least for me, was that super creative player Dolgopolov lost against Troicki. It’s always nice to see unorthodox players in action.

We are soon in the second week and the clay action is really heating up now. Check back here for information, predictions, news, and pretty much everything else about tennis.
