He shouldn’t be out there playing. Tough to tell an 18 year old who wants to badly win his first title though

Shame for Felix but I don’t see a way back from here. Damage control now, the groin/hip won’t get better from a Bo5 at RG.

I feel fine about it. I actually know about sports unlike you. You shouldn’t be watching
Of course you feel fine, you got nothing better to do in your life than hate your betters. Pathetic.

Betters? Is this English? Felix doesn’t bring it in big matches and if you can’t see that then you’re just a blind spectator who doesn’t know anything about the sport. Which is fine, but don’t participate in discussions about it and pretend you’re knowledgeable

He wasn't....prepaired.

I guess his game will continue to develop, but I'm not impressed with Felix. Like I don't see anything that really separates him from the other baseliners.

At least you can see the obvious. Props to you it’s good to see someone who actually watches the matches

1) I’ll participate where I see fit, thank you
2) You couldn’t even see the kid was hampered and compared the men’s game with the women’s - that really shows what you “know” about tennis
3) Just apologize for being such a ********* and admit you are nothing but a little hater and I’ll give you a pass

That's a pretty good looking trophy IMO, something of a rarity on the tour.

Felix is doing well, but I never thought he'd win. Paire was too good and too focused this week. When he's like that, he's magnificent. Sadly, he only hits those highs in rare moments. I saw Felix bending over several times, and although I know it would have been a heartbreak not to play, he might have done himself more harm than good. It's obvious he has a groin injury. As someone who's gone through that recently, even a minor strain can be very painful and prolonged resting of the muscle is indicated. At the very least, it should have been wrapped. I hope he'll be okay for RG, but five set matches might not be in the cards for him. The fact is, when not treated properly, a groin injury can become chronic. I hope that doesn't happen, and he takes good care of himself.

After Marrakech I became impaired by the fact Benoit had a paire of titles so having three career titles is awkward. He needs to get a fourth one very soon so he has two paire, even if three of a kind beats those two paire.

I hope Benoit is not too tired for Roland Garros. With all these deep runs in tournaments, he might might need to paire down his schedule.
Paireish the thought of less Benoit!

I still take a tired Paire over a rested Romanian Cupuvpils 1R. Czechs only for good Pils(ner)
