Toronto 2R: Lu def. Mathieu 3-6 7-6(3) 7-6(5)

3 hours, 16 minutes

I figured PHM would lose when it got to a 3rd set TB

Good job Lu

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!

You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.

Poor Mathieu and his ridiculous journey of tight defeats. A couple days ago 5:2 and match point up against Nieminen wasn't enough for him. He had to play as a lucky loser to get one more slap in the face. 6-3, 4:2 (30-30)... 5:4 (30-0) in the final set, 5:4 in the tie-break, and double fault at match point down without even trying to risk the second serve...

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

Re: Toronto 2R: Lu def. Mathieu 3-6 7-6(3) 7-6(5)

once correction. mathieu was up in the last set 5-4 but it was 0-30 on Lu's serve so at least Mathieu didn't choke the game from 30-0 on his own serve. The stats show a few things. Mathieu was ouplayed on second serve points, he didn't come to the net enough and its suprising Lu has more winners. With Mathieu's power advantage that shouldn't happen. It leads me to believe he isn't moving well at this time.

Awesome win for Asia's finest.

Lu again entering new territory. This win puts him in the top 40 for the first time. Remarkable achievement for someone with more losses than wins this year.

impressive stuff from yen-hsun pork as of late.

What is the real game?
It is a game in which the heart is entertained,

It is the game you will win.

Re: Toronto 2R: Lu def. Mathieu 3-6 7-6(3) 7-6(5)

asia will be the next dominant tennis power.
book it.

it was america and australia before now its europe, next will be asia. even martina navritilova said it in one of her interviews.

lu is from taiwan, and once tennis becomes popular in china, watch out.
chinese are pretty darn good at these racket sports. i.e table tennis and badminton.

its just a matter of time, u need someone to inspire the fans, then it becomes popular.
just look at womens golf over the last 10 years, asians dominate that.

Remarkable to think Lu is the only Chinese player in the top 300 and the only East Asian in the top 100.

Before him Srichaphan (Thai) and Lee (Korean) were the only Asians to make the top 40. Even though hardly any Thais or Koreans ever make the top 300. Interesting how these anomalies pop up every now and then. Goes to show these countries all have talent but no tennis infrastructure.
