Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

First round in Heilbronn versus Kenny de Shepper. Seems not unbeatable...

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Struff beat Ungur, and there was a somewhat comical point. Struff's last service game (second to last game of the match) when he was leading 30-15: his first serve hit the top of the net, it looked like it was going to bounce out, but it fell in the left service line, Adrian lunged for it, but with no luck. I would have liked to see a replay. The no-let service point came kind of by surprise. I'm not sure if Ungur forgot about this temporary rule, or simply thought the ball wasn't falling in. If he had stepped up to the service box in anticipation of the ball dropping in, the ball stayed in the air enough time too - he could have let it rip to level the game at 30-30.

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Jan-Lennard is steadily closing in to the Top 100. Final in Bergamo tomorrow. Good thing for him is that he doesn't defend any points till May. This is his chance to take a jump.

I dream of a better tomorrow, where chickens can cross the road and not be questioned about their motives.

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Next week he is in Quimber and in three weeks in Cherbourg. Afterwards he is on the list for Miami. Inbetween he plays maybe the Challenger in Dallas, but this is only speculation. In this tournaments he can collect enough points for the Top 100 and the MD in RG...

...this could be exciting

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Disappointed with last week's effort. Roll on the next tournament.

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Sure disappointed but not unexpected...

...final in Bergamo sunday evening, journey to Quimper on monday, so real rest only on tuesday. Ignatik instead has lost first round in Bergamo and had much more time for rest...

...I think in Cherbourg will be better!

Cool Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

He's playing again and winning 6:3, 6:3 against Ivo Karlovic in first round of Miami Qualification...

...one more to go for the Main Draw!

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Yeah I have seen Jan play quite a few times now, last time was live at the Australian Open qualies.
His results are totally unpredictable: On a good day he can blast top 100 guys off the court with his straight powerful shots, but on a bad day he can produce 50 unforced errors and lose to the number 600.

Hopefully he can fulfil his potential and do some damage!

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Donskov looks like a realistic opponent to beat.. the betting odds are even in Struff's favour cause Donskov's clay record is not that great. Hopefully Jan will be on his game!

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Couldn't do it in the end, but the points gained from qualifying are welcome.

Re: Jan-Lennard Struff

Would love to see him come through against Chardy, he'll then get the chance to showcase his skills v Djokovic on Centre / No.1 court. 3rd round of Wimbledon + Qualification should see him reach the top 100 too.
