    Janowicz beat Albert Ramos, not Alberto Martín – two different people!

    I had no idea there was so much Gael love. While on the subject of Gael – my French might not be that great but I’m pretty sure the man’s name is not pronounced GAIL, as most commentators call him. He would be such an amazing player with some consistency and more aggression – he has the Novak defense and gumby-like bending limbs, and can rip a pretty killer forehand.

    Fernando says If someone, anyone, (and Fernando has tried over escagot ) could persuade La Monf to use his power, play aggressive and look to hit more winners, you might have a Top 5 player. Maybe he should go into every march with impending cramps.

    Maestro’s draw just got some frosting on the cupcake, no?

    Stacey Allaster should show some leadership about that hindrance rule.
    It’s a complete joke at the moment.

    Sharapova has a brand new grunt. So much for the “It’s been part of me since I learned how to play”.

    BTW, telling nine years old to be quite down in Florida doesn’t count.

    Wozniacki-Robson was arguably the highest profile match of the day for the women.
    Suzanne Lenglen was about half full.

    When you don’t have a TV deal, your website sucks and the crowds aren’t there, it’s time to look for a new CEO, ASAP.

    Regarding Gael’s name: the confusion about the pronounciation is probably beacause the name Gael (used both in English and in French) IS pronounced ‘Geyl’. It’s the French variation Gaël which is pronouced Gah- El. Do we have any idea which version is Monfils’?

      It is highly difficult to explain the “on” sound to an anglophone as it doesn’t exist in English.
      BTW, Monfils means “my son”.

    Andy Murray also sent us to “Happy Dancing Spaniards” once. He did searching YouTube on a regular basis.

    So no one had a single thought about the best clay court player of all time having a tough match on Day 2? Great coverage.

      I learned that Rafa was a great player who could get himself out of tough situations about eight years ago!
