AO R1 Sergeyev def. Sela 6-3 7-6(3) 4-6 7-6(8)

Good win by the up-and-coming Ukrainian. The two guys traded a whole host of minibreaks in the latter stages of that fourth set tiebreak but finally the man from Dnipropetrovsk prevailed. I've never seen him play, is he any good?

And, yeah, WTF was that, Dudi?

I seen him in some CH. he play baseline tennis with long rallies, his favourite claycourts. it's very big surprise that Vanya will play 2round in AO

TT Trofy :

Doubles: W Stuttgart 08 (w/Dmitriy), W Tokyo 07(w/Dmitiy), Istanbul'11 CH(w/Pauchis)

Singles : San Sebastian'11 CH, Manerbio'11 CH

Sela should be kicked out of top 200 for this awful loss. Gifted with a beautiful draw and he does this?

Sergeyev is an offensive counter-puncher, good defender and hardworker.

His main strengths are movement and solid baseline play. Forehand is his better wing (he runs around his beckhand oftenly), using it he can change directions, change the rhythm and occasionally hits some winners. His backhand is more defensive with irregular depth. He has a good, slice 1st serve - not massive in terms of power (average speed about 180km/h) but is effective and good placement. He’s got solid passingshoots.

His weakness is attackable 2nd serve - passive, and often too short.
While making mistakes, he gets angry, screams, and throws his racket.
