Garin Recovers to Beat American

Garin, who demonstrated his clay court credentials by reaching the quarter-finals in Rome, recently, began his campaign in Paris with  a match against the American Tommy Paul, the world number 33, a former French Open junior champion.

The first set saw fluctuating fortunes, with the advantage swinging first one way and then the other. Paul went a break up, and then it was the turn of the Chilean, but neither could sustain the advantage. Paul then broke again and finally he was able to hold on to take the set.

But then the tide began to turn in Garin’s favour. Two consecutive breaks of serve enabled him to level the match, and two more put him in control of the third set.

Paul got one of the breaks back, but was immediately broken again, and Garin was a set up.

He then broke again midway through the fourth set, and Paul was forced to serve to stay in the match. He saved match points but not the third as Garin booked his place in the second round.

Ivashka Cuts Paire Down ot Size

Ivashka’s first round opponent was mercurial Frenchman Benoît Paire, a fine tennis player on his day, but who is sometimes let down by a suspect temperament.

Paire had again attracted headlines before the match with comments about the ATP withdrawing ranking points from Wimbledon, but, by his standards, this was a relatively low key affair.

Ivashka gained an early advantage when Paire dropped his opening service game, and consolidated that to take the first set.

The second set became increasingly scrappy, with both men struggling to hold serve. Paire, though, proved the more inconsistent, and Ivashka moved two sets up.

However, for a brief period in the third set, Paire found his form, raced into a five game lead, and reduced the deficit, suggesting he may be ready to stage a fightback.

And when he was two breaks up in the fourth set it looked like that might become a reality. But the storm blew itself out, Ivashka broke back, and, although Paire had three set points, he could not convert any of them, and was broken once more.

Paire served to stay in the match, but much to his own disappointment and that of the Roland Garros crowd, he dropped his serve again at the worst possible time.
