Wimbledon R1: Istomin def. Wawrinka 6-7 (5) 6-1 2-6 7-6(4) 6-3

Good stuff Istomin and now Stani can play Braunschweig next week.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I don't see how this is very surprising. I picked Wawrinka but Istomin had quite a good grass season leading up to this.

Stan prepared for Wimbledon by playing a clay challenger. Istomin has shown major potential these last weeks on grass. So, this result is not only not an upset, but it was expected.

Stan is a clay guy with OK results on other surfaces. Istomin is the fast court guy with the fast court game.

Stan does lose a lot of points, but yeah, he'll probably ask for a WC into Braunschweig next week, and regain the lost points.

Istomin has a good game to expose Wawrinka's general fast court weaknesses.

At the end of the day though, if you forget about the Murray match Wawrinka's grass record is shoddy. He generally loses to the first guy with a serve he meets.

Denis is a much better player than I thought. He has really nice looking shots, powerful, flat, he hits pretty good angles, good serve, OK net ability and his movement is average but good enough for a guy whose aggressive like he is. Seems like he may be starting to break out a bit.

Stan in general is about moderate level on surfaces outside of clay. Simply takes too big of swings and doesn't move well enough. His results off clay actually have gotten worse since he made his move to the top 10 in 08. However, he has made the 4th R at Wimbledon at least twice, so he can play decently on grass.

He can produce on slower hard courts, not really the faster ones (IW and Miami last year he was excellent). As you say, all about his backswing mechanics.

Yeah, but check who he played. Vassallo/Schwank/Levine last year - Levine is competent at times, but I could beat the other two on grass :-) 2008 it was Daniel, Potro, and Zverev by retiral. His game worked against Murray because he wasn't pressured, in very heavy indoor conditions after the ventilation systems failed. He could set up and tee off big hit after big hit, while Murray couldn't do any damage at all.

Against a heavy serve and powerful groundstrokes he's toast - I saw him Nottingham one year, he was even overpowered by the mighty Seppi groundies, could barely win a point against that giant serve. Sure, Notts is a lot quicker grass, but it's the same general problems Wawrinka has on any faster court.
