At that age you never know just how good they are as they've barely played on the pro circuit. Most of the top juniors could probably easily match the top 500 players, and as they improve their physicality and get more used to pro matches they can climb quickly. A lot of talented players in the juniors.

You would think that Chardy's experience will allow him to find a way back, whilst Garin may start to tire, either physically and/or mentally. He's got a set on the board but he still needs to find a way to win another.

Chardy breaks, 3-1 up in the 2nd.

Gasquet has won his second title of the year in Montpellier, beating Benoit Paire 62 63. Good start to the year for him.

Great tournament for Paire as well, taking out Simon en route to the final.

Yes he was very impressive in that match - shame he couldn't back it up by playing a bit better in the final. But still a great run to the final for him.

Tomic and Dimitrov playing in Rotterdam at the moment, both wearing exactly the same kit! Palely patterned top, grey shorts, yellow shoes.

Dimitrov just taken 1st set.

I didn't know Rotterdam was being televised so early in the week - thanks for the info. Just tuned in now.

Good to see that now Andy, Novak, Rafa and Fed are all saying the same thing. Hope this means that it's more likely that something does get done - more blood testing is definitely needed to ensure that the sport is clean.

I see Tsonga lost last night in Rotterdam to Sijsling - surprising result. I'm looking forward to watching Delpo/Monfils tonight - should be a good match. Shame they have to meet so early though!

Very interesting that on the Eurosport posts re: Tsonga there has been no mention of choking as there would have been had it been Andy.

Humm didn't notice this yesterday, Jerzy Janowicz got knocked out of the first round in Rotterdam by Hanescu. Another player who seems to be failing to live up to his hype, the Australian open outburst aside he seems to be rather outspoken off court also judging by these comments:

"I’m always my self, I imitate no one, I don’t play. Emotions guide me. When I’m angry I show it. I don’t have idols. I used to like Sampras style and Safin’s attitude. Djokovic is a false one, he just likes to show off and play. Federer instead is full of himself, he has something not natural. It’s hard to feel him like a integral part of all of us."

Now i know as fans we can have our opinions of tennis players but i think for a proffesional sportsman to have such outspoken public opinions of fellow tennis players is very disrespectful. I'm hoping this chump does not amount to anything on the tour.

Lol at the Federer comment.

Yeah the more I hear about Janowicz the less I like him.
