San Jose R1: Berankis def. Becker 6-3 7-6(2)

Decent overall performance from Berankis, and a great tiebreak. Too many errors but served and returned quite well, was very consistent in hitting the ball deep when he wasn't making mistakes, hit the slice well, and moved well. Just the better player from the baseline and frustrated Benji into errors. He played at a very high level on the big points.

Becker's game has changed a lot from what it was, he's standing much further back and lofting the ball much more, as well as hitting more slice. His FH was not good, as usual it was his weakness.

played well, kept his nerve on those crucial points, serve was good. Dictated the rallies , forcing Becker's frustration. Nicely done

NID...choked a bit at the end of the second set with lazy errors, but put himself together in the tiebreak. Young should be another routine 2 - setter

Re: San Jose R1: Berankis def. Becker 6-3 7-6(2)

It's funny how "overrated" Berankis just keeps winning.. and winning.. and winning.. and winning.. Sort of a thing you have to do if you want to be a "future of tennis", huh?

The above is aimed not at Grisha himself, I have nothing against him at all and I do want him to succeed. But some of his fanboys, oh boy..

Good match from Rycka, I thought. Shame I couldn't enjoy it too much because of the annoying commentary, who seemed more keen to discuss the LA event in the summer than the event going on right under their noses.

Man he beat Benjamin Becker and you think Berankis is a god. Dimitrov had to play a much tougher opponent, face it. Berankis is pretty good though, a good asset to men's current tennis.

Grigor Dimitrov is the future.
The OP of this thread does (third post down), but I wouldn't try to reason with him.

quotation marks should have shown you that I was being sarcastic, v-money already posted a link to the thread I was referring to.

Again, I am a fan of Grisha myself Also, not saying that Berankis is god and I agree that this victory is absolutely nothing special. My snide remarks were aimed at some of the Grisha's fanboys who seem to be quite delusional (Berankis has some of delusional fanboys too, feel free to make fun of them!)

Expected, Becker is ranked much higher, and Berankis much lower than they actually are.

No i knew you were being sarcastic i was just shocked at the person who said he was overrated cos they have clearly never watched tennis before.
