Re: Qualifying Draw

A quick report on the matches I saw today. They are brief because I wasn't able to watch any match fully.

Nathan Thompson vs. Benjamin Balleret - Nathan won quite comfortably 3 and 4. Being a Clemson grad he had some support and that definitely never hurts. Balleret never really was able to take the offensive 1) because Thompson was usually striking the ball with more authority and 2) when he tried, Ben often miss hit the ball long.


Brendan Evans vs. Artem Sitak - I have seen Evans a million times and I've never seen Artem so I was anxious to see Sitak. Evans was pretty well behaved and didn't talk to himself too much, but that might of been because he was playing pretty well and won in 2. Artem should have at least taken it to a tie-break in the first, but he lost the key points and his play quickly faded in the second set. When he is hot, he can flatten out his forehand a lot, and backhand somewhat, but when he is cold he can literally hit the back fence on them...


Luka Gregorc vs. Michael Shabaz - Luka Gregorc is another player I ALWAYS see when I attend tournaments, but I don't mind watching him. He was bothered by a hip/waist issue which he had worked on a good bit by the trainer, and he was wearing a knee band which is quite commonplace these days. Shabaz needs to drink a few less coldies probably, but I like him, he is a good player, and he definitely didn't fade in the heat and had some nice fight so props for that.


Rohan Bopanna vs. John Valenti - I had never seen Rohan, and I think it was my first time seeing John live (have followed his site for years though! www.johnnyblazed.com ). Anyways, Rohan has some nice talent and toyed with John pretty much. John is cool as shit though.


Haydn Lewis vs. Niko Karagiannis - I had never heard of Haydn and I had not seen Niko play in probably 3-4 years, so it was nice to see him. Haydn Lewis is a lefty from Barbados and while the match was not super rigorous, I could see that he can play. Really not sure that he could move beyond an average future/challenger player though. Niko was off and Haydn played well, hit lines constantly and passed Niko well.


Andre Sa vs. Olivier Sajous - Had never heard of Olli, but he can definitely play (after researching he plays college tennis in Florida). Sa's balls had almost zero force behind them and Olivier hits the ball with a lot of both topspin and drive/speed. I only saw the last 5 minutes of this one but it was clear who was the superior player (in 2010).

Andreev - Cilic - Dolgopolov - De Bakker - Djokovic - Gulbis - Haase - Hrbaty - J Johansson - Kucera - Kuznetsov - Russell - Simon - Sweeting - Thron
