He did look pretty one dimensional today, yes.
Fair enough I haven't seen a lot of his matches (just his one against Fed at the AO and Chardy). He hits it real hard, but when coming forward he looked a bit clueless.
Fed's slice worked quite well to neutralise Korolev's power in the second set I thought.
I think he needs more consistency. He hit two double faults and a loose shot to literally gift the break in the first set to Roger.
