Korolev defeats Haase 7-5 6-4

The battle of the 20 year olds (but Haase is a few months older).
6 breaks in a row in the second set. Korolev served for the match @ 5-3 and had matchpoint.
1 game later he had one again and finished it.

Well this is if Almagro decides to play claycourt tennis and not try and out ballbash like he did with Blake at RG.

Congrats Zhenya, hope he can build from this week and Haase continues his solid season.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Re: Korolev defeats Haase 7-5 6-4

Haase's service stats were horrible, he lost more service points than he won. Bit unusual for a player normally serves fairly well (and is difficult to break).

Too bad, Robin. Still, a great run at this tournament, keep it up.

Congrats to Korolev!

For sure, Korolev would love it if Almagro feeds him pace or just tries to outhit him. Almagro is the big favourite anyway but Korolev has nothing to lose.

Re: Korolev defeats Haase 7-5 6-4

Robin ,wtf.
Probably tired of yesterday's match with mad Marat.
However, good result. Could have been 1/2 finals.

Re: Korolev defeats Haase 7-5 6-4

I don't know what to say. Although it is a win in straights it wasn't that easy for Korolev. Most of the points were a lot of hard work for both of them.

Re: Korolev defeats Haase 7-5 6-4

It could not be easy for Korolev, he is slowly gaining his confidence back...

Well done, Zhenya!

Haase turned 21 at the start of this month, weird match with lots of breaks. although its clay Haase should win more games on serve....

decent tournament for Haase. 3 russians was to much

Next week: some rest I guess and then Barcelona

Nalbandian

Escude-Kuerten

Gasquet-Ferrero-Lopez-Mathieu

Nadal-Acasuso-Haas-Youzhny-Berdych-Gonzalez-Tursunov
