Re: Delray Beach Final: (7) Anderson def Matosevic 6-4 7-6(2)

[QUOTE=rhinooooo;11791325]Poor match really. First five games were all breaks. Marinko making poor errors, and Anderson killing his 2nd serve. Kevin was serving like garbage too. QUOTE]

It was extremely windy at the beginning of the match, which I think made it difficult for both of them. Add to that the nerves both might have felt and that makes it even more difficult. Yes, the start of the match was pretty average, even poor, but overall there was some good tennis played. Kevin should have done better on the break points in the second set (he was a little passive), but credit to his opponent for fighting for it all the way.

Re: Delray Beach Final: (7) Anderson def Matosevic 6-4 7-6(2)

Matosevic was tired from yesterday and didn't have his legs under him. I give him credit for fighting, but his game is ugly to watch overall and I find it very unlikely he'll ever duplicate runs like this on any consistent basis at this level.

Kevin wasn't great but served well enough, returned pretty decently, and was more consistent. Good title for him, didn't play his best throughout much of the event but found a way to take the title. Will give him a lot of confidence headed into IW/Miami.

Matosevic is a mediocre server. It's improved but it's too mechanical, not enough rotation and extension. Until that improves, he's going nowhere really. Yeah, he can hit flashy winners, he's improved his consistency to some extent, but that's really about it.

true enough, it's grotesque...

fortunately the excitement machine that is matosevic gave the crowd what they wanted which is extreme excitement which significantly reduced the risk of suicide

Expected, the future GOAT wouldn't want to tarnish his CV with a Delray Beach title. I mean, try as it may, its no Newport.

Cheerleaders at Wimbly would be a step in the right direction.

They should do that for Roddick in his last match. Hot cheerleaders and the anthem.

Yeah you're right.

Roddick's last USO match. Wimbly would never go for it.

We need more Haastards. I miss that Haas avatar, especially the 1 first name in common with Tommy Robredo.
