Re: Philipp Petzschner

Bad semifinal loss. 46 46 to Damm/Lindstedt and they clearly missed the cut in Rotterdam.

So only Memphis and Delray Beach are left before the Masters events.

He will lose more points now, around 160 in singles and 200 in doubles the next few weeks. It's obvious that he won't have a chance to play with Peya in IW and Miami.

Petzschner vs Nieminen

I don't like this draw. But if he wins, the chance for more is there.

Peya didn't even get into qualfying.

Roddick would have been worse

oh no, I like him. But it's just a fact. He is not seeded so he could have picked Roddick aswell so I think Nieminen is not too bad for 1st round, isn't he?

Re: Philipp Petzschner

I didn't like it mainly because Jarkko is one of my other faves, but I think the match up isn't good either. I guess around half of the players would have been easier.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

This doubles draw looks like the big chance to earn big points. 0-90-180-300-500 point structure in Memphis.

Petzschner/Peya d. (WC)Delic/Levine 6-2 7-6(2)

They struggled a bit on serve from 6-2 *2-1, but who cares now. 47% return points won and the big server Delic got broken 3 times. Like in Zagreb, they face Hanley/Kerr in the QF. They better win this or soon they will have more second round defeats than Gulbis.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

That he won doesn't mean it was a good draw. He really made the big points today, he basically played only 2 good return games and struggled on serve quite a few times, made even 3 points less than Jarkko in the second set.

Kunitsyn is next. Last year he lost to him 4 and 1, but maybe indoors it will be better.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Well done Philipp

That's very big win against Nieminen. Still stay in the tournament both event.
Hopefully get some point and prize money here. There's no end to what we wants,
but I really wanna see another display trophy.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Argh, rebreak when he's serving at 6-3 *4-3.

Serving to stay in the set and 30-40...

Broken, 6-4.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Shit, but it seems after the first set he had a hard time holding his serve. He struggled much more on serve than Kunitsyn, could have lost the third set even earlier I guess. Simply not good enough.

Now win the doubles later.

Re: Philipp Petzschner

Really good:



Believe it or not, but if they beat the winner of Cerretani/Fisher vs Parrott/Polasek, they will get into the top 8 team ranking.

I would be really suprised, if Philipp didn't get a Davis Cup nomination next Tuesday. He has beaten a lefty this week, who isn't worse than Melzer, so he showed that he wouldn't be hopeless in singles. In doubles he was in the "pole position" anyway, so it was up to the others to show something special, but that didn't happen. Picasso is now 7-4 on ATP level doubles this year, while Kas is 6-6. I would be pleased to see a Kas/Petzschner doubles, but Schüttler seems to be in a good position to get nominated. 2 out of Petzschner/Schüttler/Kas/Zverev should get nominated.
