Ignore my query then
wouldn't discount Julien so easily... winner plays Berdych.
I like to root for Jerzy, but I don't have a lot of confidence in him yet so I never feel like he's got a game in the bag. Nice to see he's got a quick break in the second set, though.

Tsonga Vs. Tomic to look forward to and Simon vs. Del Potro.
I like Jerzy... has potential. I would have liked to see how he matches up with Benneteau, but I'm not need a TV now.
Nahh, you can tell Janowicz has the mental strength to close this out... saved MP vs Murray and came from 2 sets down in the 'how many times' match
Do you get Tennis Channel? They've been rebroadcasting early round coverage in the evenings. Maybe they'll show this one tonight.
How many times goes through, solid performance going by the stats, wish I could have seen it
Yeah from what I can tell he saved 1 SP serving 4-5 down in the 1st set as well.
Is Jerzy due another top 10 win?
Well I feel sheepish
