He always served great, that's about all he has. But he has a very strange motion indeed, with lots of effect. If he'd hit it flatter, it would be even faster.

First set to Muller, 7-6 (9)

He was impaeccable on serve in the beginning, but not in the end. Sijsling's stats are actually better.

First poor service game in the set and he immediately loses it, 6-4 Sijsling.

1st serve percentage dropping for Gilles, looking bad.

On the other hand, he won quite a lot of these close matches off late.

Re: Week 44: Eckental, Germany [Entry List]

i never knew igor was so strong behind his serve, seen him twice and i never got the impression he was a solid server at this level.

Re: Week 44: Eckental, Germany [Entry List]

He has a very good serve, but it seems to work only indoors. On clay he just his motion I guess, so it's not that big.

I saw him in Rotterdam this year, against Soderling, and there he was serving huge as well.

Re: Week 44: Eckental, Germany [Entry List]

Not a single first serve and Sijsling wins. Good win, but once again Muller shows he is just all serve.

Re: Week 44: Eckental, Germany [Entry List]

Great win for Igor! He conceded only 18 points in 17 serve games. Usually he isn't very convincing on own serve.

Tsonga - Wawrinka - Del Potro - Gasquet - F.Lopez - Monfils - Haas - Janowicz - Youzhny - Tomic - Hewitt - Gulbis - Mahut - Haase - Schoorel - Sijsling - Huta Galung - De Bakker - Van der Duim - Westerhof - Middelkoop - Koolhof - Lootsma - S&T. Griekspoor - Sels - Van Rijthoven

All time: Safin - Schalken - Krajicek - Sluiter - Verkerk - Henman - Ivanisevic - Nalbandian - Ferrero - Philippoussis - Sampras - Siemerink - Blake - F.Gonzalez - Ancic - Haarhuis/Eltingh

Still supporting all the Dutchies despite their great choking skills
Looking forward to the Dutch Futures and Challengers this summer!
