at the scoreline. Kohli says he played really well for a first match in the States, but still.
You're welcome Fran
The Philipp v Philipp match was not good for Petzsche. Kohli was playing extremely well. Petzschner's slice was failing him big time and just couldn't get into the match. He broke a racquet
but was pretty calm about it. He smashed it once into the ground before he sat down at the changeover and then finished snapping it in half over his knee. He handed it to a ball kid to throw away, but someone in the crowd took it. Unfortunately, none of my pictures from that match came out because it was at night. Without the flash, everything was a little blurry.
Here's video from his first round match. I was sitting right behind
his chair and got a tad nervous
at the end of the video. You'll probably notice the camera becoming increasingly unsteady.
At the time, I was thinking 'Fran really owes me one now'
