Ruben Bemelmans (ATP-110) won Tuesday at Roland-Garros in the first round of the Indian Yuki Bhambri (ATP-93). For the 30-year-old Limburger was still the first victory on the main table in Paris from his career. He couldn’t believe his luck.
“Roland-Garros is wonderful this year. What a rollercoaster of emotions”, responded to Bemelmans, who, after his elimination in the third qualifying round fished as a lucky loser. “Friday, there was disappointment, Saturday I fished. Bhambri is not gravelspeler, so I knew that it was a droomloting was. That chances I have with both hands. It’s finally succeeded.”
The start of the race was tricky for Bemelmans. “I was nervous and had difficulty to find solutions for its fast returns. After that, I had that I him from left to right had to move. After I got the true second set won, he is mentally cracked.”
In the second round, plays Bemelmans Thursday against the Est Jürgen Zopp (ATP 136), which is surprisingly the American Jack Sock (ATP-14) off. “Rather against Zopp against Sock. Zopp has in the past, a lot of physical discomfort known, but has been in the top 100 charts. He is easily in the ball and hits pretty hard. But he is less experienced than Sock.” ALSO READ: Three in four for the Belgians today at Roland Garros
