By the way I have never seen Pdorn on grass, I assume he is good, looking at his Wimbledon results. My question is why is he good on grass. THe last few times I have seen him was on hard courts, and his serve is nothing special...
He has his days every now and then when his shots decide to go in the court. On those days, he can hit with just about anyone. If I recall (and I haven't seen him play in about a year, so I could be wrong), he has a nice serve that sets up the points for him, a big forehand and one-handed backhand, and sometimes he uses a backhand slice that is effective on grass. He is terribly streaky, though.
This should be a fun, close match like some of their past battles. I think they have a pretty even H2H, no?
