CH Savannah R1: [Q] Strode def. Matosevic 7-6(8) 6-1

Four straight first round losses now for the Australian. Big win for Blake. Matosevic held 5/10 times in the match.

Anyone catch the scoreboard to see how the first set/tiebreak went down?

I've thought that Matosevic has the talent for top 100 but not always the motivation. After making an ATP final he probably thinks he's good enough to always be on tour and finds it difficult to become motivated for Challengers, even when he knows they are his ticket to the ATP tour.

He's got a garbage game in general, so these types of frequent losses are expected.

When I first saw Mugtosevic play in AO, I immediately realized he was a terrible player - glad to see him live up to the expectations of mediocrity.

Mediocrity? Even that is too high of a standard for this junior level clown.

Matosevic does have motivational issues I think, but he's also a headcase and he is not a high-level player at all. I think his talent level is not top 100 quality. Especially his serve.
