Definitely. Vasek was solid. There were many service games where he simply couldn't do anything with Guccione's serve. And up until 5-5 in the 2nd he was cruising on serve with little threat. To that point, the only way it seemed he could lose was 6-7 7-6 7-6, but overall I never felt Vasek was going to lose the match in the second set (and usually I'm very pessimistic). The vast majority of rallies went his way, and Guccione wasn't doing anything really with even his second serve. As the match went on Vasek was reading the serve better and getting a lot more balls in play, at which point he was the closer of the two players to threatening to break.

Yes that looks like the same shirt - it was definitely K-Swiss

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Vasek's match has been cancelled today. I'm pretty sure he's up at 10am tomorrow with the other cancelled matches

Guess this is better than waiting all day long in the locker room.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Almost every game on serve / return is close in this set, with a handful of break points here and there by both.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

So, sixth time lucky for Vashy. He really needed that break, so I'm not complaining.

6-1, 7-5

Total points won in the 1st - VP 31 : CB 19
Total points won in the 2nd - VP 50 : CB 47

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Good stuff from Vasek, but definitely his hardest match still to come against Zemlja.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Given how many seeds have fallen he is kind of unlucky to be meeting one.

The bright side of that is that if he does lose, he will definitely be in the LL lottery.

Not a problem at the moment, gets the first set, broke to love

Re: Vasek Pospisil

He chose a good moment to finally make inroads on Zemlja's serve.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Seems like he's really gone off, hasn't held yet in the second, down 1-4*

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Guess he got a bit carried away, after winning the first set.

Keep focused!

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Judging from the long break between the sets, it seems like he called a trainer.
