Re: Roland Garros R2 : Giraldo def. Tomic 6-4 6-1 6-3
Giraldo played good, very solid from the baseline.
He could come to the net more often, 80% 1st serve was very convincing.
Giraldo is Top 30 on clay at the moment, but he has to add a bit of variety and increase his net game.
Tomis was gamewise kind of arrogant, he plays without much pace (as always) although he can hit much harder. He was not totally in that match, he could easily win one set but was not able to create pace or variety to win a lot of rallies. He only uses 1 of 11 breakpoints.
He is always waiting what happens (and on opponents faults) but he could create more of his own game to dictate more of the rallies.
Strange performance by him.
