Quotes from the news wire:
Truth is, and I hate to say it, we are going to lose the greatest player of all time in terms of interest in a year or two when Roger stops, we have a new breed of men and women that are really exciting, great athletes, great attitude but they are missing out on a bit of the limelight while the likes of Federer and Rafa Nadal and Novak continue to play.
Obviously we lose a year of the chase in the history books but at the same time who really cares who ends up with the most majors? it hurts Novak more because he was in great form and Roger is getting older. But for the younger players a break like this is much tougher. Yes, they are obviously going to be able to practise at some point, somewhere, but not playing matches?
The only way to beat Rafa on clay is to take risks... to over-achieve you have to over-play and risk more than you feel comfortable doing, if Thiem can do that and build enough hope in the first hour, hour and a half, maybe get the first set he can make it physical like he did in Madrid. I'm not sure if Thiem and Rafa had a run in the Bois de Boulogne that Rafa would win.
If I were Thiem I would be going like, 'You know what Sascha, today we're going to go for a run. It's not going to be a sprint but a run and we're going to go uphill for four hours. If you beat me in the end you're better than me, but I'm going to take you the whole way.' If he does that Thiem is the favorite.
I think with Keys it's a matter of time before Mihaela Buzarnescu pulls it together for two weeks, mihaela Buzarnescu has got a huge game and big forehand and serve so Keys is always one of those ones that can win it. For Keys this is a little bit of an opening and I think Mihaela Buzarnescu might take full advantage of( Buzarnescu beating fourth seed Elina Svitolina).
