Once again Jurgen lost in the first round to a qualifier. As I always say the qualifiers are tough to beat.
Melzer L Zverev 6-3, 3-6, 6-7 (3)
He also lost in the first round at Indian Wells last year so hopefully will not fall in the rankings.
Jurgen now has a new coach. Galo Banco, if the name sounds familiar, he used to coach Raonic. Hopefully he will help Jurgen's game. Today Jurgen lost to Youzhny 4-6, 6-7(3). From the score it was close.
He is still in the doubles playing with Haas of Germany.
Jurgen is the winner in Winston Salem by the retirement of Gael Monfils. Jurgen was leading 6-3, 3-1 when Gael had to call it quits. It looks like Jurgen is ready for the US Open and we will have to wait to see how he does. I hope that Gael is able to play the Open, but he did not look good. He said he had a pain shoot up inside him. He had problems in the semis and needed the trainer so I worry for him. On Twitter Jurgen posted a picture of Gael and himself boring a plane for NYC so Gael hopes to be able to play.
