Queens R1: The Don def. AHM 6-4 6-7(5) 6-2

Don had 5-*3 in the second set tiebreak, was mostly dominant on serve in the second set but didn't win another point, then fell behind a break to start the third, so I was worried this would be another loss exposing his mental fragility. But he came back and broke three times in the third set to win it. Obviously not the best opponent but a good win nonetheless.

Serving at 72% is definitely a positive sign for Don. Hope he keeps that up going forward.

The rise of the Don. Good for him, seems to be decent on the grass to be honest. Served well.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

The Don to strike come Wimbledon.

Last week he lost 3-6 1-6 to Niland, so I was obviously expecting nothing today. I don't think he's that great on grass, he got a good draw against a clay courter and took advantage. He has improved mentally, although he's still fragile, he's got more fight and that definitely helped.

Glad he got a main draw win. Beating Anderson or Ivo on grass next round I think will be impossible. So I'm happy with the win.

Very strong recovery after blowing 5-3 up in the TB and going a break down in the 3rd.

Tough draw next round, will be a good challenge.
