Re: Philipp Petzschner

He's got the latest match on the oop and I fear Karanusic and Horna will play a slow match.

Court 9 - 12.00pm
Roko Karanusic (CRO) v Luis Horna (PER)
WTA
WTA
Hyung-Taik Lee (KOR) v Philipp Petzschner (GER)

Re: Philipp Petzschner

1R Petzschner d. Lee 6-7(4) 6-1 6-4 ret.

But he's not on the oop tomorrow so his doubles shouldn't be before Thursday.

He should improve to 441 points after Wimbledon, that means even a top 100 ranking is possible. After Newport the US Open entry list will come out. The problem is that he will lose the 35 points from Oberstaufen in that week, so he needs a QF in Newport to be safe or a win over Ancic tomorrow.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

He will play on a show court tomorrow. I changed my avatar to show the people who has the second best slice in the world.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Do you know how we can watch his match in Germany, JMG? Do you think Premiere will show it? Or are there other livestreams available here?
I had a Wimbledon Live subscription, but I just got a refund because I complained the livestreams are not available in Germany. Bad timing, it worked with a pr.o.xy. :-/

I think Premiere will show something, at least they mentioned the match yesterday evening.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

OK, thanks, I'll just stick to Premiere and cross my fingers then. Zverev and Stadler also are playing on TV courts, but let's hope they won't all play at the same time.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Eine Ehre für Petzschner
Der 24-Jährige lernt die 131 Jahre alte Veranstaltung gerade erst so richtig kennen. Zum ersten Mal hat er es im Einzel ins Hauptfeld geschafft, wozu er drei Runden auf den holprigen Plätzen überstehen musste, auf denen die Qualifikation ausgetragen wird. Als er im ersten Hauptfeld-Match dann Hyung-Taik Lee gegenübertrat, war Petzschner zunächst "schockiert", wie ihm die Bälle entgegensprangen: flach, aber langsam. Dabei hatte er schon am Wochenende auf dem Trainings-Platz ein seltsames Erlebnis gehabt: Ihm glückte kein einziges Ass. "Hier stimmt etwas nicht", schoss es ihm durch den Kopf, "oder meine Schulter ist kaputt."
Normalerweise hüpfen die Bälle in Wimbledon schnell vom Rasen. In diesem Jahr aber prallen sie eher lustlos ab. So lustlos, dass in der Umkleidekabine bereits die wildesten Gerüchte zirkulieren: Die Greenkeeper könnten die Halme beim Mähen gegen die Richtung bürsten, aus der die Kugeln kommen. Das würde einiges erklären, ist aber nicht zu beweisen.
Irgendwann war es Petzschner auch egal. "Das ist Wimbledon", hat er beschlossen, "da ist es eine Ehre, dabei zu sein, egal wie blöd der Rasen gemäht ist". Weil sein Gegner aus Korea aufgab, darf er nun noch ein bisschen bleiben.

He was truly shocked at the beginning of his first round match because the game was so slow. He didn't hit one single ace in training either, was already wondering if his shoulder was "kaputt". Many players complain about the grass and the strange bounce this year. Some even suspect the grass is brushed in the opposite direction of the ball to slow it down.
Philipp: "But it's Wimbledon, it's an honor to be there, no matter how they mow the stupid grass."

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Mattek-Dushevina has to be the slowest match ever, I cannot believe it's still 1-1 in the 2nd set, I thought my scoreboard was dead.

Nothing to do with Wimbledon, I came across that website the other day, there are some nice pics of Philipp, but with watermarks:

You probably know it already anyway.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Well, I took another Wimbledon Live subscription because I realized I'll need it next week anyway.
He isn't that bad imo, Ancic is just too strong.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Just saw your post in GM about the partly disappointing performance, JMG, I knew you were going to post something like that.
But I was also thinking during the match he can actually play better than that (ground game, serve), he was not playing out of his mind and still managed to keep it so close, it was really encouraging - and a great fight anyway.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Did he have a chance in the second set btw? I saw he wasted a triple bp in the beginning. Throughout the 3rd and 4th set he also wasted some big chances on return, e.g. this bp in the 4th when he netted the easy forehand. Thanks to Simon Stadler and Premiere I didn't see the final set until 3-5.

Tomorrow only court 9 for him. But as long as they win it's okay.
