I am hoping Jurgen will do well here. Clay used to be his favorate surface.
He does not have many points to defend and needs to do something before he goes to Wimbledon where he has a ton of points to defend.
I have read several articles by Austrian writers that say Jurgen's hip was bad and did not allow him to play well for five sets. When you are 31 it takes longer to heal and he needs time to get better. They feel he still can play good tennis and do well. They emphasized he has not had much time to prepare for matches because of his injuries and they feel that is why he ran out of steam during the match. They gave credit to Berrer for taking advantage of Jurgen's hip injury.
I hope his hip isn't a lingering thing and he can get better soon, because he's a friggin awesome player, and tennis needs him back in top shape, if you don't like Melzer you don't like tennis in my book.
