    Great to get revenge. Loving it at the French atm, good to get a good run after a good performance last season. Hopefully that can continue against Drake.

    The seeds keep on tumblin'

    Roland Garros II - Men's Doubles
    GRAND SLAM - Friday (Day Seven) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • Thirteenth seeds Rob Bowenburg and Jarkko Maxum are still alive in the men's doubles in Paris with a straight sets win over Argentina's Miguel Bertolotto and Mauro Santana. The South American pairing had started their week with a surprise first round win over Morton Blundell and Jason Bradley, and looked good against the CWLanders early as they led 3-0 in the first set. Bowenburg and Maxum powered back, though, and managed to take the first set in a tiebreaker as they created a number of free points from some smart serving that set up some easy volleys at the net. The second set was a plodding affair as Bowenburg and Maxum failed to get a break of serve despite a number of opportunities until the final game of the match as they secured a 7-6(4), 6-4 win.


    • They expected to meet third seeds Hayden Onwye and Ross Onwye in the third round before the Moroccan brothers were ousted by Björn Donaldson and Brett Read in straight sets. Semifinalists in Season I, the Onwye brothers were stunned by the makeshift pairing in a tight contest as they failed to take advantage of key opportunities to take both sets. Donaldson and Read had a third of the break points that their opponents had, but made the most of their chances with consistently attractive tennis and smart work at the net. Ensuring at least one West CWLander will make the quarterfinals, they set up a Bowenburg/Maxum meeting with a stunning 6-4, 7-6(3) win after coming back from 0-40 at 5-6 in the second set.


    • Nothing doing for Scotland Rivers and Ivan Genov as they fell to a very convincingly looking outing by eighth seeds Ion Andueza and Sanchez Emelio. Having cruised through their first round match, Rivers and Genov met a pairing who have grown up on clay and looked a street ahead of their opponents at times in terms of cohesiveness. Down a set and a double break, Genov and Rivers got a real run on to take the second set to a tiebreaker and after getting the minibreak immediately looked set to capitalise on their hot streak. Unfortunately they couldn't as Andueza and Emelio set up a third round meeting with Carlo Amato and Patrick Pascaul 6-3, 7-6(3).


    • Seeded players out: Hayden Onwye & Ross Onwye; János Varga & Zoltán Varga.

    Why do I get the horrible feeling we're going to come unstuck against these Wily Croats?

    Roland Garros II - Men's Singles
    GRAND SLAM - Saturday (Day Seven) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • Unseeded West CWLander Brett Read has advanced to his first Grand Slam quarter final with another five-set victory at Roland Garros - this time against 27th seed Sanchez Emelio. For the third time in a week Read was taken the distance before prevailing as the 28-year old showed why he has one of the best tanks on tour in his dynamic victory. Emelio was fresh off upsetting the fourth seed Sven Oxenstierna on Thursday, but started slowly to trail 2-5 in the opening set. He managed three games in a row to level the set at 5-5, but was immediately broken back by Read who went on to take the first set 7-5. But as has been the case a couple of times this week, Read suffered a complete blank as Emelio began to show the form that earned him a win over Oxenstierna in the third round. Punishing Read with his forehand, he took the second set 6-1 and charged to a 3-0 lead in the third.

    Read, however, would not die and although he dropped the third set he was still creating chances as he bounded around the Court with some fantastic defensive tennis. Despite trailing by a break in the fourth, Read again charged back to deny Emelio the chance to serve for the match and taking the set to a tiebreaker. There he got the jump on the Spaniard and although there was a brief fightback closed out the tiebreaker 7-5 after a drawn out rally.

    With it all on the line in the fifth, neither player seemed intent on taking the match by the scruff of its neck as a pretty cagey start saw the score level at 4-4. Then Read struck: breaking the shackles to bring up three break points with a thunderous backhand down the line. Emelio saved two, but the third was a bridge too far as he sent a slice wide to hand Read a 5-4 lead. With the match on the line, Read served extremely well with his kick serve out wide continuing to confound the Spaniard. Needing just one of his two match points, Read secured his quarter final place lobbing Emelio off his backhand side to complete a heroic 7-5, 1-6, 5-7, 7-6(5), 6-4 win.
    • It will take an even more heroic effort on Monday if he's to make the semi finals with seventh seed József Boros his scheduled opponent. After starting the week slowly, the Hungarian looks primed to make a run at the title after tearing through 23rd seeded Italian Antonio Bachunelli in straight sets 6-2, 6-4, 6-0. Bachunelli had dropped just one set all week and was made to look like a novice by the Hungarian who is now the second favourite to claim his first Grand Slam title.


    • In the first quarter final, eleventh seed Illya Altman will meet rampaging local Jean-Christophe Genghini. Altman came into Paris under a huge injury cloud but has quietly hit his straps to suggest his woes are behind him as he came from a set down to beat Javier Villaneuva 4-6, 7-5, 6-2, 6-2. While Villaneuva and Emelio couldn't back up giant killing displays, World No. 77 Genghini kept the dream alive with his crowd pleasing style - upsetting eighteenth seed Diego Hurtado 7-6(5), 6-2, 3-6, 7-6(5). Genghini's tiebreak form proved the undoing of the Colombian as he continued the form of his life to be a real smokey to make the final.


    • Seeded players out: Antonio Bachunelli; Sanchez Emelio; Diego Hurtado.
    Our first two quarterfinals:

    Altman (11) vs. Genghini (77)
    Read (135) vs. Boros (7)

    Roland Garros II - Men's Doubles
    GRAND SLAM - Saturday (Day Seven) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • Second seeds Heath Davis and Jojo Mustard have won through to the quarter finals of Roland Garros with a convincing straight sets win over Croatia's Ivan Češljar and Nilikar Midid. Still untroubled this week, the West CWLanders continued their push to the World No. 1 spot with some dynamic tennis despite both players coming off a packed week of alternating singles and doubles action. The Croats lacked the firepower to match the Westerners as Davis continued to look absolutely top notch on serve as he took a whole heap of confidence from his big win over Radivoj Daneu yesterday. Mustard, meanwhile, is one of the best volleyers in the game and has people predicting big things at Wimbledon. The second seeds through with a 6-3, 6-2 win and meet ninth seeded Belgian pairing Mark Harmel and Yves Parmentier after they edged out Carlos Machado and Denis Rodrígues 7-6(3), 7-5.


    • In the second quarter final, sixteenth seeds Mikel Fosdike and Christian Mary will meet unseeded East European duo Ivars Emsis and Alexey Yarkin. The French duo beat Felipe Menon and Roberto Santos 6-4, 6-3 while Emsis and Yarkin stunned rampaging fifth seeds Sandro Bachunelli and Hicham Hadir 6-3, 3-6, 7-6(5).


    • Seeded players out: Sandro Bachunelli & Hicham Hadir; Carlos Machado & Denis Rodrígues.

    Good luck changing your worthless Ossie money for proper stuff if you ever come to the West, ****.

    Another great win for the Mustard/Davis combo there. Looks like it'll get harder from here on in though.

    It has been an exhausting week that's for sure. Hopefully we can keep the momentum going.

    Roland Garros II - Boys' Singles
    GRAND SLAM - Monday (Day Nine) - Paris, France - Clay (Red)

    • Top seed and junior Australian Open champion Marcuss Deane has made a winning start to his Roland Garros campaign, but did it tough as he ousted Spain's Miguel Alfonso in three sets. Deane had no trouble in the first set as he overwhelmed the Spaniard with power, but Alfonso kept at it by mixing it up and using the backhand slice to great effect as he continually caused Deane trouble. The big serving West CWLander struggled to create his own pace and found himself down a break in the third set. But with his serve struggling, Deane finally changed his tactics and came to the net more often against his less-fancied opponent to secure a 6-3, 2-6, 6-4 win. His next opponent is local wildcard Henri Arcouet who won his first match 7-6(5), 6-3.


    • No such luck for Shri Ram as the East CWLander was edged out by Brazilian fourth seed Felipe Braga. Ram started poorly against the teenage South American as he unloaded with a torrent of unforced errors and bad language. After dropping the first set 2-6, he took advantage of a tiring Braga whose style really requires a better tank. However the Brazilian was clearly more comfortable on the surface and won through to the second round in a tiebreaker 6-2, 7-6(3).


    • In the same section, Eastern youngster Tom McIntosh proved too much for Slovenia's Ilijaz Koceli in an impressive three-set victory. The Slovenian came from a break down to take the first set in a tiebreaker, but could not maintain a high enough quality of tennis as the slim American-born youngster proved too solid and cool under pressure in his 6-7(3), 6-3, 6-2 win. He now meets Bulgaria's Yuri Shankov after he upset fourteenth seed Santiago Manzo of Peru.


    • In one of the day's more exciting performances, fifteenth seed Jay Ono cruised past Croatian qualifier Pribislav Matković. The Moroccan-born Ono recently accepted a scholarship with the prestigious (allegedly) East Robbham Junior Tennis Program and put a hurting on Matkovic with a talent on his forehand side well beyond his years. Even at this level he's got little on the backhand wing, but he proved too much for Matkovic in a 6-3, 6-2 win. He now meets Russia's Tomas Volkoff who came from a set down to beat Aussie John Standish 4-6, 7-6(3), 6-0.


    • In the day's biggest upset, the unseeded Morgan Burridge ousted sixth seeded Fin Yrjö Kurri in three sets. Burridge, a highly rated youngster in the West, was an underdog against the consistent Fin but proved too good over the three sets in a 6-2, 3-6, 6-4 victory. After the big win, he now meets Italy's Lucius Cremonesi.
