rotla, you picked both Stan and Ilhan from their match (and did not pick from Gulbis-Sijsling).

I don't know how the first two sets went, but the match looks heavy, dead and slow.
Fed kind of can't wait to leave the court.

Finally set myself up with Eurosport player...

I don't know whether it's the grey skies, but everything looks heavy.

Both Fed and Nishi actually look/ed tired.

Fed looked ok I thought. He started out quite shaky but from the midway in the first set I thought he as playing reasonably well - not great but ok.

Bojana Jovanovski a flat-hitting young Serbian player, after her win today:

"The courts are very slow, much slower than in Rome. I couldn't get used to it.
Hitting the ball fast is not dangerous at all, you have to play with a lot of spin and try and open up the court"


Yes, that sounds about right...and explains why Nadal thrives in Paris...
That explains why Fed and Nishi looked so slow, sedted and tired today. Those balls are pure death...

fed again said balls are dead and conditions too slow "returning second serves is a joke".   Probably why he look aggravated even while comfortably winning.

Yes. Also Falla was not playing bad, infact quite good. Just lost because he lacks a bigger game and Fed was fine within himself.
This court/balls are as slow as they can get, maybe even slower than what they have ever been.

Fed needs to adjust, and adjust to the grinding game.
