damn, I really wanted him to win this, but it turned out to be a bad loss instead
Jürgen seemed to be pretty nervous and made lots of stupid errors, also he can serve much much better and he has to stop making stupid errors on his backhand side...
I hope that loss doesn't mean too much for Melzer's Davis Cup career and I hope he can still go into the right direction in future...
I'm attaching a few GettyImages pics of Jürgen Melzer and Stefan Koubek in their singles against Great Britain on Saturday...
Thanks for the pics! I also wanted Jürgen to win.
But Rusedski was the better player.
I think the fact that Jürgen started the tie-break with a double fault explains a lot, also the thing with the racket misuse. He didn't feel well at all. Also Stefan said that when they interviewed him about his opinion why Jürgen was playing that bad.
Jürgen surely will find his way! His next goal is to be seeded in Melbourne next year! Hope he reaches that!
But that's far too far into the future, let's concentrate on tomorrow!
