Miami R1: Grandpa Schuettler orders kiddie Harrison to make him a sandwhich 7-5, 6-2

Rainer is over 16 older than Ryan. He'll be 35 next month. Give it up for the oldest bloke in the top 100!

Re: Miami R1: Grandpa Schuettler orders kiddie Harrison to make him a sandwhich 7-5,

so much for harrison snatching slams left and right. he will be very lucky to make top 20 at the current rate.

i admire the spirit but i just dont see it happening for him.

Surprise?
I don't think so, tennis is a very complex discipline, to be in the Top 20 or Top 10 you have to deal not only with different surfaces but also with very different styles of play. Harrison beat at Indian Wells similar players (Chardy, Garcia-Lopez, Raonic) who try to get many points with a quick "serve & forehand" combination and play flat strokes from both wings, so their margin of error is quite big. I didn't see the match but I suppose Schuettler was trying to keep the ball in play and it was the key to Harrison's self-destruction.

It should have been Grandpa Schuttler beats young Harrison 7-5, 6-2...with his walking cane. I don't know how this old guy keeps doing it. I wouldn't be surprised if he finishes the year in the top 100 again.

Supporting the unusual strokes gang: Dolgopolov, Mayer, Mannarino, Tomic

Re: Miami R1: Schuettler def Harrison 7-5 6-2

you know it's a mug era when a 34 year old man who was never that good in the first place can still be in the top 100.

no wonder the quality of the current era has driven guys like thomas muster to grab the racquet again. they know they can win something given the mugginess of today's era.

No surprise here either, chardy and ggl are playing like byes for players nowadays. Harrison got lucky in IW and Rainer shows him how far away he truly is.

Re: Miami R1: Schuettler def Harrison 7-5 6-2

I don't think his performance in IW was overrated, but he had more pressure in Miami to follow up from that performance and it's quite typical to see young players not dealing well with expectations. I'm sure he was hyped up quite a bit coming into the tournament.

Schuettler also had a point to prove. Nothing much better for a veteran tennis player than to be able to assert his authority against the up and coming guys who think they can swing freely and get victories left and right. I'm sure he played with extra motivation today.

Re: Miami R1: Schuettler def Harrison 7-5 6-2

Not a surprising result. Night+humidity+already slow court=horrible conditions for Harrison. And knowing Rainer he probably counterpunched Ryan's shots a lot and kept him off balance, and Ryan made tons of errors. Also Rainer is a better returner than all 3 of Raonic/GGL/Chardy, so he's going to get more serves back and force Ryan to play, and he's still a bit erratic at this point in his development. Lastly, the weight of expectations on Ryan from IW potentially could have been weighing on his psyche. But we all have to remember he's only still a kid, and will only keep improving from here.

Great to see Rainer getting some good results when some on this forum wrote him off

It doesn't really change anything for Ryan. He's still a very good player who will be a top 100 player by fall and a top 50 by this time next year. Losing this type of match is part of the maturing process. Schuettler knows that.

Re: Miami R1: Schuettler def Harrison 7-5 6-2

this old bone rattler, 'the kraut meister' schuettler is an evergreen... all pro this guy...

if harrison had a decent coach, he'd tell harrison to go have a shower, shit and shave then write a 5000 word essay on why he should be appreciative of the quality time him and the old kraut spent together... as well as 25 points of what he learnt for the creaking old dog..
