Kubot has been playing with confidence and Zverev does not have any. And that is how you get a result like this.

Kubot is a pretty dangerous player to me. I could see him doing pretty well for himself in this tournament.

For the last time, TO BAGEL MEANS TO WIN A SET TO ZERO.

Tsonga/Stakhovsky doesn't qualify? They were both doing it a lot and the same will probably be true when he plays Dent

Yes? I didn't see that match. Generally I consider Kubot as the more offensive player than Tsonga and Stakhovsky, I would say they are in the Zverev's league in this department but I suppose Zverev was attacking to the net more against Kubot than he usually does.

Anyway the Tsonga-Dent match should be fun if Dent will have good % of 1st serves

Zverev is the most serve and volleying of them all... the only true S&V of the ones cited in this thread really, except Dent, as the others do it whenever they feel like it with little to no tactical sense.

Did you know that zero is called love in tennis? It is actually. The score at the start of a game is love all, that means zero-zero. When a player wins a set to zero, it is called to love. The first point made is 15, the second point 30, the third point 40, and next point is the game. One side needs to win a game by two points; if the score is 40-40 (called deuce), the next player to win a point has advantage. If the same player wins the next point, he wins the game. If the opponent wins the point, the score returns to deuce.

Thank you for not reporting my post.

@ Voo Not all the time, but Tsonga's level of a lot. Not sure about Stakhovsky, from what I've seen of him, he varies it from practicalyl pure S/V to basically none, so not sure where it stands on his scale.

In any case, should Kubot beat Giraldo, he's on course for Gasquet/Youzhny possibly, which while not S/V encounter sounds tasty

All true, but does love have the shape of a bagel?
