    Roland Garros II - Men's Singles Qualifying
    Grand Slam - Wednesday (2nd Qualifying Round) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • Fourth seed Marcuss Deane is a win away from a main draw appearance at Roland Garros after an impressive win over East CWLand's Vladimir Stakhanov. In an all-CWLand clash, Stakhanov put up a brave fight against Deane as he let fly with some impressive power from the back of the court but was continually thwarted by the calmness of Deane under pressure. Despite both sets being tight, Deane was the superior player in the clutch moments and secured a well-deserved 7-5, 7-5 victory with his sixth ace of the match. He now plays 28th seed Renato Varas who won his match with Marc Lubbers 3-6, 6-2, 8-6.


    • Randy Banks continues to have the sum total of no trouble winning matches as he putting a hurtin' on Christian Mary. The third seed was dynamic as he replicated his first round scoreline against improved opposition with some impressive hitting from the back of the court. In fairness, Mary played some awful tennis for the most part compounded by an ankle injury mid-way through the second set. He stuck it out, but the damage was done as Banks won 6-1, 6-4. He plays Poland's Radaslaw Marzec who thrashed Aussie Thomas Cartwright 6-0, 6-0.


    • Wildcard Julian Clipton-Marshall's qualifying campaign has come to an end as he fell to Estonian 27th seed Taavi Aleksejev. It was a tough start for JCM who dropped the first set 3-6 on the back of two service breaks for Aleksejev. But the second set was an improved performance and at one stage he even had a set point. Aleksejev, though, was too polished and flourished on the clay as he earned a well-deserved rest tomorrow before Friday's qualifying round with a 6-3, 7-6(2) win.


    • Finally, marathon man Pierre Rose is just a win away from a French Open berth after a tight three-setter against Alex Rojas of Chile. After a bruising three hour encounter with Max Eisenhauer yesterday, one could be forgiven for expecting Rose would be far less fresh than his Chilean opponent. But in an amazing performance, the West CWLander came from a back down twice in the third and final set to pull of a heroic 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 win in a match that lasted two hours and thirty-three minutes. His fate is decided on Friday against Sweden's Linus Petrus who came from a set down to oust seventeenth seed Jiří Gross.

    Roland Garros II - Men's Singles Qualifying
    Grand Slam - Thursday (2nd Qualifying Round) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • Jason Lawley has won through to the qualifying round with a hard fought three-set win over 29th seed Paul Arroyo. The West CWLander has the perfect opportunity to make the main draw next week after a 6-2, 4-6, 6-3 win over the Colombian. Lawley won his first round match dropping just one game, but the World No. 160 provided stiffer opposition. But Lawley was too good in the end with some fine returning in the third set, and now meets local wildcard Eric David for a spot in the main draw. The World No. 263 dropped the second set 0-6, but beat Xabier Jiménez 6-3, 0-6, 6-4.


    • Phoenix Wleft came from a set down to move into the last 32 with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 win over the Netherlands' Ronald Bergsma. Having come from a set down to beat Ilja Nesterov in a nailbiting display earlier in the week, Wleft did it again and more convincingly this time against the World No. 249. He meets eleventh seed Oleg Puder next.


    • There was also a victory for Westerner David Briggs as he outgunned Piotr Bak of Poland. The World No. 237 hasn't played much tennis on the pro tour, but showed why he is a great prospect for the West with a 6-4, 6-3 domination from the back of the court. He has American Brian "Butch" Miller next after Butch beat a South African 6-3, 6-1.


    • Finally, 21st seed Ishan Narang proved too good for Jason Schmidt in a 6-4, 6-2 win. The American was no match for the powerful East CWLand signing as the enigmatic Narang crushed Schmidt inside of two hours. It was a welcome easy win after he was pushed to the limit by Patrik Boman earlier in the week, and he now moves to a qualifying shootout with World No. 193 Orazio Rizzo who beat Jesse Adams 6-4, 6-3.

    Roland Garros II - Men's Singles Qualifying
    Grand Slam - Friday (Qualifying Competition) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • Pierre Rose was the first CWLander into the main draw after a straight sets win over Sweden's Linus Petrus. The on-fire Rose, who has been awaiting this moment for quite some time, played comfortably his best tennis of the week after being taken to three by Max Eisenhauer and Alex Rojas. Petrus was also coming off a three-set affair earlier in the week, but couldn't match it with Rose who played sensible tennis for the most part as he showed his game is growing on the red clay. He cut down on errors and managed to outplay Petrus as the doubles specialist showed he still has work to do physically as Rose overpowered him with a 6-4, 6-4 win.


    • No such luck for third seed Randy Banks who, having dropped just ten games in his first two matches, blew five match points in a nervous affair with Radaslaw Marzec of Poland. Marzec dropped the first set and was again trailing regularly in the last as Banks failed to take advantage of his numerous opportunities. With just his first match point, the Pole secured victory 4-6, 6-2, 9-7 in the most tense match of the day.


    • A second set catastrophe wasn't enough to stop Marcuss Deane charging into his first Grand Slam main draw with a win over 28th seeded Chilean Renato Varas. Despite taking the first set, Deane was on the receiving end of a smashing by Varas who claimed the second set 6-1 with Deane managing just eight points. But after the humiliating turn of events, Deane hit back and began to make inroads against Varas' serve as he clinched a composed 6-3, 1-6, 6-3 win.


    • Jason Lawley completed a fine week of qualifying with a hard fought win over local wildcard Eric David. David had taken his first two wins in three sets this week, but Lawley denied him that chance in an iffy performance which was saved by some strong willpower in tiebreak tennis. Taking the first 7-4, Lawley took the second 12-10 as he finally converted his fifth match point to advance to the main draw 7-6(4), 7-6(10).


    • Phoenix Wleft also advanced with a 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 win over eleventh seed Oleg Puder.


    • There was also a main draw berth for David Briggs who continued a monumental week for the East with a straight sets upset of American Brian Miller. In a tough match, Briggs produced his best tennis late in sets to steal the match from underneath the American in a confident 7-6(5), 6-4 win to make his first Grand Slam draw.


    • Finally, Ishan Narang made it a sweet six for CWLand as the 21st seeded Easterner took out Italy's Orazio Rizzo in three sets. Despite throwing away a 5-2 second set lead, Narang never gave in and reaped the rewards as he claimed the third and final set 6-0. With his game dogged by his typical inconsistencies, it was a positive sign that Narang managed to fight off the adversity and secure a massive victory with his top notch serving and a baseline game that is growing in confidence. He even managed to secure the match with a serve-and-volley in the ultimate show of where his game is at right now.
