Re: Hopman Cup - Simon def. Lu 6/3 7/6

It was a bit erratic. Simon played really well to start with in the first half of the first set, with some impressive changes of pace then it kind of dropped off. He missed some really easy shots at times, like the overhead smash that landed wide by numerous metres and a couple of easy passing shot putaways missed as well. Not that it matters, for the first match of the season.

Lu played decently, but made numerous double faults, a couple at crucial stages to lose his serve.

Simon on his brief collapse: "I really enjoy the fight, so when there is no fight it’s hard for me to find the killer instinct.”

this is sparta

Re: Hopman Cup - Simon def. Lu 6/3 7/6

The close second set was mainly due to lapses in concentration which are acceptable in Hopman Cup.

Win is a win. Simon is looking for a form for the AO.

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?
