RG Day Two: The Things That Happened

Posted by gauloises1 on May 25, 2010

A brief round-up of the things I found noteworthy today …

JJ won 60 64 against Alicia Molik. She looked pretty.

Remember Project 45, Special Kei Nishikori? He’s back after a protracted injury lay-off, using his protected ranking to enter the main draw after winning consecutive Challengers, and putting it to good use, beating Santiago Giraldo 64 in the fifth. Good stuff.

Gonzo is back. And still Gonzo.

La Monf is also back, winning in four and confirming he is still himself.

As is Nole.

We lost Tommy Robredo to Viktor Troicki. Is that an upset? It doesn’t feel like one.

This is Benoit Paire. He’s 21 and he lost to Olivier Rochus in four. I watched, and I think he’s a thing. Watch this space.

Nose Job won and took his shirt off (not necessarily in that order).

And all was well in the land.
