0-30. Bye, Fred.
oh gosh...hold on pls fed
benny 2 points away
Benneteau will be kicking himself that he didn't force Federer in a longer rally.
This point is gonna be interesting.
Double Fault! Match Point!
And what is the age of the person on the other side of the net?
Match point Benneteau.
5-6 30-30 down, federer hits a double...
match point benneteau
fed choking, cant buy a first serve
Benneteau win in straights!
man,, what a match. fed loses but still, well played.
Lol ouch Fed, better luck next tournament! Well done to Benny, I'm guessing he played well?
Federer LOSES 6-3 7-5. Looks like Mr. Indoor isn't Mr. Indoor anymore.
Fed's bh just wide....sigh. Nice play from J, from what little of the match I caught.
Almost but not quite.
Credit to Benneteau, fantastic performance especially on the returns.
Benneteau wins! truely well deserved he came out firing and federer didnt show up till the end of that final set. Hopefully he can prepare well for Dubai but the 2013 season is looking like just a shadow of the 2012
That was one of my favourite matches of 2013.
At least he's not losing to a Zeballos on clay or something.
Very surprised to see Benny get the win. Fed played like he was out partying too late last night. Not a good performance from him today at all.
A deserved win for Benneteau!
Unfortunately, you can't win them all Fed. Tis nice when a nice guy beats one of the top 4.
You can't win matches if you don't put the first ball, Fed.
congrats to benny but fist pumping when feddy double faulted is dbaggery, fed needs to dump his mug couch asap
Brilliant. Don't like seeing Fed lose but love seeing the likes of Jules really rising to it and getting a win. Inspired stuff from the Frenchman, Fed off his game slightly. Delpo's to lose now.
So when nadal lost last week Mr. CLAY is not Mr. CLAY anymore?
yeah, its starting to look like 2012 was the last hurrah.
ah well, who knows, he may eke out a win here and there but, its gonna be tough rowing.
Full credit to Bennet for a well-deserved win.
Federer showed flashes of brilliance and flashes of ugliness. His 1st serve absolutely let him down today. Benneteau played well though, just crushing the ball at all angles.
Federer makes things really hard for himself. He didn't have to go for a curling topspin DTL backhand. He could have chipped it DTL
Perhaps his lunches at 5pm took their toll
No it isn't. It means Benneteau won the mental battle. Fist-pumping is just Benneteau showing emotion, something his opponent never usually does.
Nadal had previously not played a match since June 28th 2012, and that was his first tournament back AND he made the final of Vina del Mar. Not comparable.
Hahaha, Federer has been Zeballost. And he's not even on a 7 month break !! Maybe he needs to dope.........:twisted:
what's the point of rotterdam for the likes of federer? Did he get offered big money?
Now this is over I guess we can all turn our attention to Woz vs AgRad in Doha,right? Right guys?
A poor service display by Federer for his standards, highlighted by the DF's on crucial times. Good stuff from Benny though.
H2h is 4-2 Should be 3-3
Hahaha I love how in your universe a 250 is somehow superior to a 500. :lol:
Federer would have lost to Gilles Simon in the next round.
I can't wait for the palette of people who are going to beat Nadal 5 years from now.
Congratulations to the French fans particularly to Benet's fans. Hope he wins his first ATP title. He deserves it for beating crybaby Feddy !
Good stuff from Benneteau. Really not all that surprised with a result like this. Fed (and for that matter the rest of the top 4) often have results like this sprinkled through a year. If he wins 1 of the next 2 I'll be happy.
Fixed that for you.
Yep, it would be nice. Not sure if he'll have as much success against Del Potro. I wouldn't mind either winning this now.
Ah well you kinda know Benneteau had a chance from the start.
Now please can Berlocq defeat Nadal so that the troll can shut up?
It's always nice to see PinkFeddy lose. It was better that way. Rather than see him lose to Klizan........:twisted:
I didnt watch the match...did he cry again?
yes he did and he wore pink too.
I like Delpo, but it would better for Benny to win his first. I think he's the only one in the top 40 without an ATP title.
