Re: Vasek Pospisil

Well, that's a bizarre end. Mitchell held serve with difficulty and then retired?

Re: Vasek Pospisil

At least he's through and has what would be most World No. 103s an easy second round. But he is rather squattered, as mentioned - time for a bit less animated and harder assed coach than Fred (who is a nice guy, just not a top tier coach). Would have thought VP would have followed Raonic and got a Spanish base, but I guess he can't just copy his path

there was like a 3 minute pause in the second set when vasek was serving 3-4 down. Im thinking maybe benjamin took a time out

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Garza's not been the fittest looking guy around by any stretch and I guess this is a case in point. A bit of revenge by Vasek for Dancevic losing to the now Mexican No. 2 in Davis Cup last year.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

either way the fact that vasek has struggled so mightily against 2 guys he should beat much easier just proves what a state he's in

if the draw was tougher i wouldnt have penciled him in anywhere but he should be able to walk to the semis

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Vasek continues to struggle, but gets past Daniel Garza (ranked 423) 4-6, 7-6 (3), 6-0. He was down a set and a break at one point.
5,
The first serve still eludes him too often, but at least he started to find it more through the match.

I see that Vasek barely got past Garza at another challenger (on hard) earlier this year - 4-6, 7-5, 7-5, so I wonder whether his difficulties are more to do with Garza in particular or generally his inability to find form.

Wow, your message worked like magic. Final set he made 76% of first serves, 8 aces and 0 DFs.

Please come back and cheer him on tomorrow!

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Looks like US Open main draw entry list it out (I thought it was next week). Cut off is 101 so Vasek at 109 is 8 out.

Yeah, I was completely off on this too. I don't think he is likely to make it in.
