Re: Miami R1: Muller def. Bogomolov 5-7 6-4 7-6(5)
Yes, and not being seeded means he's more likely to face tough players early. Guys aren't taking Bogomolov for granted anymore, and he doesn't have the same motivation this season. It's a very similar situation to Dodig, where they just play above themselves and everything comes together for them, until reality crashes on them.
Bogo's biggest problem is his lack of a forceful serve, though. It's a decent placement serve, but his last few losses which have been to Matosevic, Stakhovksy and Muller, they have the serves to get them out of trouble plus can break Bogo. He'd be better if he had a Ferrer serve and won more free points with it.
