Roger Federer v Marcel Granollers: French Open 2015 – live!

Roger Federer v Marcel Granollers: French Open 2015 – live!

French Open 2015 second round updates from Roland Garros French Open court invader disturbs Roger Federer’s post-win glow And email jacob.steinberg@theguardian.com or tweet @JacobSteinberg 12.55pm BST Third set: Federer* 6-2, 7-6, 3-2 Granollers (*denotes server): Federer holds easily enough. Suddenly he can spy victory. 12.53pm BST Third set: Federer 6-2, 7-6, 2-2 Granollers* (*denotes server): This is incredible! At 15-30, Federer, seemingly out of the point on two separate occasions, slides back and forth across the baseline and twice claws sliced forehands over the net to dumbfound Granollers, who eventually fires into the net! Federer has two break points. He only needs one. We are back on serve. 12.49pm BST Third set: Federer* 6-2, 7-6, 1-2 Granollers (*denotes server): Federer restores a semblance of normality with a hold to 15. 12.47pm BST Third set: Federer 6-2, 7-6, 0-2 Granollers* (*denotes server): That was a weird and surprising loss of concentration from Federer. And so is this. He’s up 0-30 in this game, only to let his level slip again, giving up three consecutive points to make it 40-30. Granollers holds and consolidates the break. 12.44pm BST Third set: Federer* 6-2, 7-6, 0-1 Granollers (*denotes server): This is not how Federer would have envisaged the start of the third set going. He commits two errors on the backhand side and Granollers breaks! The comeback is on! It’s definitely on. 12.41pm BST Second-set tie-break: Federer 7-1 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers drags another backhand wide and the second set is Federer’s! Not without a fight, though. Granollers will feel he should have won it when he had a game point at 4-2, only to pick a very bad moment to double-fault. You cannot afford to be that wasteful against Federer. Momentum shifted, he was always likely to make the most of that 12.39pm BST Second-set tie-break: Federer* 6-1 Granollers (*denotes server): Federer ha five set points. 12.38pm BST Second-set tie-break: Federer* 5-1 Granollers (*denotes server): Granollers can only block a backhand return into the net. 12.38pm BST Second-set tie-break: Federer 4-1 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers plonks a backhand wide. He’s in trouble now. That’s an expensive miss. 12.37pm BST Second-set tie-break: Federer 3-1 Granollers* (*denotes server): A stunning backhand return down the line from Federer! 12.37pm BST Second-set tie-break: Federer* 2-1 Granollers (*denotes server): An ace from Federer. 12.36pm BST Second-set tie-break: Federer* 1-1 Granollers (*denotes server): Federer hits back. 12.36pm BST Second-set tie-break: Federer 0-1 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers starts the tie-break with a cross-court forehand. 12.35pm BST Second set: Federer* 6-2, 6-6 Granollers (*denotes server): We shall have a tie-break. 12.32pm BST Second set: Federer 6-2, 5-6 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers holds to 15. At the very least, he has forced a tie-break. 12.29pm BST Second set: Federer* 6-2, 5-5 Granollers (*denotes server): Federer does hold to stay in the second set. 12.26pm BST Second set: Federer 6-2, 4-5 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers is smiling after spinning a drop shot away to make it 30-15. Federer doesn’t even bother going for it. He knew. Granollers wins the next two points and Federer will have to hold to stay in the second set. 12.23pm BST Second set: Federer* 6-2, 4-4 Granollers (*denotes server): I fear that Granollers is going to regret that double-fault. To compound his disappointment, he thought that the first serve was an ace, only for the umpire to call it out. It would have sealed the game and thirty seconds later, the second serve was out and Federer was back in it. The margins between success and failure can be so fine. 12.19pm BST Second set: Federer 6-2, 3-4 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers simply has to consolidate the break here. What he doesn’t need to do is double-fault at 30-15. Federer smells blood - but he lets Granollers off the hook with a wild forehand. 40-30. A point for a 5-2 lead. But Federer is too good here, a backhand down the line setting him up for an easy volley to drag the game to deuce. Federer, though, has lost a bit of his early flow and a terrible backhand gives Granollers another chance to hold. Can he? Nope. For goodness sake. A double fault. What a time to do that and soon Federer has a break point. A lengthy rally ensues but eventually Federer wears Granollers down and punishes him with a forehand down the line. We’re back on serve. 12.12pm BST Second set: Federer* 6-2, 2-4 Granollers (*denotes server): Here’s a chance for Granollers! He wins the first point and then roars away with the second, a coruscating forehand from right to left helping him into a 0-30 lead. Is a break on the way? Maybe! Soon it’s 15-40. There’s a ripple around the court. Federer hushes it with a serve-volley combo to save the first break point. But he can’t save the second! A brilliant backhand return from Granollers is enough for him to break and suddenly we have a proper match on our hands! 12.08pm BST Second set: Federer 6-2, 2-3 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers chunters after Federer makes it 15-30, whizzing a forehand down the line. He might be in trouble here. But he digs in on serve to cling on and make it 30-all, then 40-30. Granollers snatches the game by wanding a drop shot over the net, Federer flummoxed. 12.04pm BST Second set: Federer* 6-2, 2-2 Granollers (*denotes server): At full stretch, Federer slices an overhead just out of Granollers’ grasp, before winning a game of cat and mouse at the net to take a 40-0 lead. He holds to 15. Granollers has been out of depth on the Federer serve. 12.01pm BST Second set: Federer 6-2, 1-2 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers steams into a 40-0 lead, but Federer isn’t going to let him wriggle away that easily. It’s 40-30 quickly enough. But Granollers holds Federer off with an ace down the middle. 11.58am BST Second set: Federer* 6-2, 1-1 Granollers (*denotes server): Everyone’s too interested in Fifa today, no one’s paying attention to me. 11.55am BST Second set: Federer 6-2, 0-1 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers steadies the ship a little by holding in the first game of the second set. 11.50am BST It’s not happening for Granollers. He starts this game by knocking a backhand past the baseline. 15-0. It’s soon 30-0, Federer romping to the net and dabbing a backhand volley away into the open court, and Federer has three break points when a defensive lob from Granollers drifts long. He can’t take the first. He can take the second. He charges to the net and Granollers, knocked off-balance by a volley from Federer, slices a forehand wide. And that’s the first set. 11.47am BST First set: Federer 5-2 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers looks like he has this game under control at 30-15, but he loses the next point and then double-faults to give Federer a break point. Uh oh! Uh oh, uh oh, uh oh! Bad move. Ill-advised. Federer doesn’t even have to do much to break. Granollers flaps a backhand into the net and Federer will serve for the first set. 11.44am BST First set: Federer* 4-2 Granollers (*denotes server): Federer punches a volley into the corner and puts a smash away to hold to 15. This has been rather drama-free so far. 11.41am BST First set: Federer 3-2 Granollers* (*denotes server): Federer whistles a forehand just wide to give up the first point; Granollers then runs around his backhand and whips a forehand down the line to claim the second, before the Federer backhand malfunctions, as it sometimes tends to do. Granollers holds to love. 11.39am BST First set: Federer* 3-1 Granollers (*denotes server): Federer holds to love. He was never in trouble. 11.35am BST First set: Federer 2-1 Granollers* (*denotes server): Granollers gets his own back with an impressive drop shot to make it 30-15, Federer slipping and sliding and stooping and unable to reach the ball in time. So he plays the next point as though he’s taken that impetuousness from Granollers as a personal affront, walloping a forehand into the corner to make it 30-all. The next two points are traded and the game goes to deuce, no let-up from Federer. But Granollers holds, winning a drop shot contest on the final point. He’ll be relieved. 11.30am BST First set: Federer* 2-0 Granollers (*denotes server): Ping! Ace. 15-0. Ping! Ace. 30-0. Federer is already having fun. It’s soon 40-0. He seals a love game with a feathery drop shot from the back of the court. 11.29am BST First set: Federer 1-0 Granollers* (*denotes server): Let’s begin. I’ll level with you, I missed the first few points of this, the opening game, as I was trying to work out how to get the match on my screen. It’s this loveable attention to detail that keeps you guys coming back to this place, isn’t it? Anyway I join the players with Federer in possession up 15-40 and in possession of two break points. He wastes the first with an errant backhand down the line, but not the second, a forehand screaming out of the reach of Granollers. A perfect start for Federer, an inauspicious start for good old me. 11.24am BST Tok! Tok! Tok! They’re knocking up. 11.21am BST Hello . So Roger Federer is still around. Not going anywhere in a hurry. Could be with us for a while yet. He’s 33 and he’s still going strong. Overstaying his welcome, though? Not a bit of it. Enjoy him while you can. You’ll be sorry when he’s gone. Thirty-three years old and he’s still the No2 seed at the French Open, which is a remarkable feat of skill, commitment, fitness, athleticism, underrated endurance and everyday taken-for-granted Federer-brand genius - the most genius kind of genius there is! Mind you, having said all that, I wouldn’t be surprised if an awkward couple of hours awaits him against Spain’s Marcel Granollers. Play begins at: when it begins at. Continue reading...
