I am so happy with this result. I hope he makes the top 100 atleast

Edit: I read that he trained with Roddick during the off-season. Hope that helped him a bit.

Anyway, I did not expect him to beat Kim to be honest. His shape hasn't been great, but it could be that his work in the off-season paid off.

his serve is way better than it was last season, I expect Top 100 in 2009

I would have been shocked if Kim had won this

I stand corrected. I forget he beat both Dent and Kendrick in that tournament.

Anyway, hopefully he cant make a run infront of his home crowd.

First time I watched Somdev play. Great win for him!

He's a moonballer though!
Good luck against Carlos tomorrow.

I watched the match. It's always better to return as many balls as possible. He is hard working and serious and tries not to make an error. The ue of Kim made all the difference. 10 aces also from Somdev. What impresses Somdev has a fighting attitude while Prakash has a surrendering tendency.

Unexpectedly good result for Devvarman.

Does anyone know of any available highlights for this match?

It was nice to know who is this Devvarman is.

As for the match, Kim played crap tennis, ue after ue, and what matters most ue in the critical moments.

Devvarman reminded of Sela a bit. He is an all court player.
