Losing a set to DGT isn't that promising, but good that he got a win again. Fognini isn't a must-win imo. He is very unpredictable, but Melzer is too these days. So pretty unpredictable match imo. Think Melzer is hte favourite though and is going to win. He must! But after that, Verdasco awaits
His straight set win over Fognini gives me hope that Jurgen may be back on tract with winning the matches he should win. If it is Verdasco, it will be tough but Verdasco has been having a rough year also. It will be up for grabs as to who will win. Jurgen needs to go far in this tournament and not lose points imo.
I did not get to see the match but I read this and thought that is so sad for Jurgen.
Referee wrong decision will cost Melzer two break opportunities
Melzer really unfortunate for it was then in the last game: Jürgen led 30:15 when the linesman saw a forehand in the pages of the Austrian-Off. The referee checked and confirmed the decision. The Hawk-Eye, which is seen only on television, but showed that the ball was in the field. Instead of 40:15 and two chances to recent re-break, it was now 30:30. Verdasco finally converted after a long rally 2:09 and his first match point.
