Re: Dan Smethurst

Serving for the match at 5-4. 0-40 he saves 3 break points to go Deuce, then saves another break point. Then gets broken...


could be the turning point in the match. 5-5 Polansky serving.

Re: Dan Smethurst

Awful first set against Gunneswaran. 6-2 loss with a double break.

Far too dependant on his BH slice, not getting enough first serves and just being too cautious in general.

Re: Dan Smethurst

Held at the start of the 3rd too.
