De Bakker is so overrated. Stakhovsky played very well. Will probably win tomorrow too.

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

Did Stakhovsky serve and volley?

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Nice display from Stak. He's a nice all court player to watch.

Great win by Sergiy He is such a fun player to watch. Not a lot of power off the ground, but he looks like he loves to use tactics and work the point out.

Not much. He came in quite a bit though if you look at the stats, not really from S&V however.. He was very solid sneaking in and chipping/charging occasionally.

Thiemo has to play well on other surfaces than just clay, he just isnt a good hard court player yet...

Very good match from Stakhovsky though, he played flawless. Nothing Thiemo could do except serve better...

Re: New Haven SF: Stakhovsky def de Bakker 6-3 6-4

De Bakker has two glaring flaws, and they are punishing his game and confidence.

1. 1st serve returning
2. 2nd serve defending points won.

He needs to put some real pressure in people's service games or he'll have to improve his serving. His 2nd serve is too weak for him at the moment, so he has to re-evaluate his tactics for the australian open. It's a little too late now to tinker.

Re: New Haven SF: Stakhovsky def de Bakker 6-3 6-4

Stakhovsky is one of those players I really struggle to read, but with the style he has I was expecting him to trouble De Bakker. I haven't seen De Bakker for a few months now but his rise has surprised me a little...has a good serve and can hit a big ball but I don't see much else in him. Is he really just 66kg?

That can't be true.

Expected. Sergiy brings more to the table and has the type of game to frustrate players like De Bakker. De Bakker is talented but he lacks the firepower of the true top threats who play his game, Berdych, Cilic, Tsonga. But he's still developing, it just will take some time. Stakhovsky played very well and solid and was confident, congrats to him.

Don't think the power is the issue. I mean he will gain more pace over his career regardless. His issue is still the mental part of his game and his consistency. He doesn't know when to pull the trigger and when to hold back as well. But for sure, I don't think it has anything to do with him lacking pace.
