Wow - I wish I had that forsight for tennis tipping
Vasek had his chances early in the third - complete lack of concentration. ERV was nothing special and Vasek let him back into the match rather than ERV earning it. Look taking one set on clay is already a good result for him - off to the grass now, he's the first alt for Wimbledon so will get MD there and a 2nd or 3rd round appearance should be the goal.
Knee jerk reactions to losses are not productive either - Vasek is ATP player material, don't forget his age. Look at a guy like Malek Jaziri - took him much longer to get to the top 100 and into MD's on the ATP tour. Vasek achieved it far quicker than most at his age group, and even if he stays a hard/grass specialist, so what - he's got the skills.
