Wimbledon R2: Lu def. Troicki 7-6(5) 6-4 6-4

Great for the sport.

Lu at 4.15 before the match, he is no grass gimp.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Wimbledon R2: Yen-Hsun Lu def. [13]Viktor Troicki 7-6(5) 6-4 6-4

NID :P

Although the match wasn't that exciting, but Lu winning in straights against the 13th seed is a great result!
Next up is Mello or Llodra, neither player have ever gone past 2nd at wimby before.

Wimbledon R2: Lu def. [13] Troicki 7-6(5) 6-4 6-4

Completely expected, Lu had opportunities in the first two sets to win them easier, but got the job done in those sets and finished the match off. Viktor isn't a good grass court player, he plays like Djokovic used to on grass. The serve and some good volleying was what really kept Viktor in the match, Lu controlled the baseline throughout. Viktor got a few bad calls and complained about them with Jake Garner, had a funny conversation with him before the resumption of play after the rain delay.

Happy to see Lu taking advantage of the draw he received.

4 threads is a bit much for this And a database error...

Pretty expected, good to see Lu is playing well enough to defend some of his points so he doesn't fall too far down the rankings

How unkind. ATP doesn't need an answer to Pironkova. WTA could only dream of having a player of Lu's calibre (that isn't Belgian)

Better grass player won.

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.

Yen Hsun takes out the trash. Troicki was a real twerp after the third last point. Got upset over a call and started screaming loudly while Lu still had a play on the ball. Thankfully, he didn't get distracted and finished off the point
