San Jose R1: Haas d. Britton 6-4 7-6(3)

Good effort and serving (15 aces 0 DFs) from Devin, which is nice to see. Good experience for him.

A solid performance from Britton.

Of course, Haas is in different league all together. Win this title, Tommy!

Sweet story, how Britton was a ballboy in one of his matches years ago and now gets to play against him.

Tommy: "I hope I was nice to him"

Re: San Jose R1: Haas d. Britton 6-4 7-6(3)

This Britton has got some game. Some things I noticed from the livestream:

1. Devin's serve is obviously his biggest weapon.
2. His volleys are solid, but his net closing ability (both cutting off angles and rushing the net quick enough) needs some work.
3. He is not patient enough in extended baseline rallies. Anytime a rally went past 4 shots, Haas won 99% of them.
4. His ability to return serve deep and consistently also needs some work. He can hit a flashy winner, but needs to be more consistent.
5. His side-to-side speed, movement, and footwork need to improve, probably a cause for #3.

All in all, a very good performance from Britton and a positive experience. Hopefully he can work on these 5 things and who knows how high he can get his ranking.

He is not patient enough in extended baseline rallies (that's always problem for young talents)

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Thiem will be top three by Dec 2016
Borna Coric will be No 1 by Dec 2017
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2018

his image in germany isn't the best and i'm pretty sure he will play for the USA soon which will make his image even worse. i'm 100% sure he's more proud of his US citizenship now. definately one of the worst characters around.
