  • Tipsarevic, Monaco and Almagro advance in Paris

    5/29/12 10:21 PM | Cheryl Murray
    Janko Tipsarevic overcame an early deficit to Sam Querrey to advance to the French Open second round. Joining him there are Juan Monaco and Nicolas Almagro.

    Janko Tipsarevic (8) def. Sam Querrey 2-6, 6-4, 7-6(3), 6-3

    After a scratchy start that saw him drop the first set to American Sam Querrey, Janko Tipsarevic hit his way back into the match.

    Querrey dictated play for all of the first set and the first half of the second. The American outhit Tipsarevic with both pace and placement, but victory would not come easily for Querrey. Tipsarevic earned the break back and secured another to snatch the second set from under Querrey. The underdog made another push in the third, forcing a tiebreaker, but it wasn't enough to take the lead and Tipsarevic closed out the match in four.

    Juan Monaco (13) def. Guillaume Rufin 6-2, 2-6, 6-2, 7-6(3)

    Except for an off second set, Argentina’s Juan Monaco played clean, smart tennis to advance past French youngster Guillaume Rufin.

    Rufin played flashy tennis and is setting himself up as a shot-maker but his game leaked errors, which spelled disaster against a player as consistent as Monaco on clay.

    Monaco's win sets up a second-round showdown for the Argentine against Lukas Rosol.

    Nicolas Almagro (12) def. Paolo Lorenzi 6-3, 7-5, 6-4

    This was not Nicolas Almagro at his clay-court best, a result perhaps of fatigue from winning in Nice just a few days ago. The Spaniard was solid enough to get past Italian Paolo Lorenzi, however.

    The Italian had plenty of chances to break Almagro's serve; earning an even dozen for the match. But Lorenzi only converted on a pair of them. Almagro's own return was solid enough to secure five breaks of serve, enough to win the match in straight sets.

    Almagro will take on Cypriot Marcos Baghdatis in the next round.
