The good thing which can be said about Amir is that he has a deceptively excellent serve. He does place it quite well all over the box, I would actually say that his serve might be in the top 10 current serves on the ATP tour. He has a much better serve than most top 100 players.

Still, good win for him!
That's a bit harsh. There are worse shotmakers than him in the top 100. Forehand needs a bit of work, agreed, but still harsh. What he lacks I think is a killer instinct. He's way too sweet and cuddly and respectful to everyone. And he seems to be a team player, he needs people to create atmosphere for him, when he's alone on the otur he lacks something.

His nerves are pretty French too.
