ATP Queen's Q2: Korolev beats Baker 6-4 7-6 (5)

Baker not ready for the grass, it seems.

Korolev has been rubbish for months now. Hopefully he is turning things around.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

I love Korolev but he lost passion when he fell down the rankings. He admitted it.

First grass court match in 7 years, I think.

Given the quality of some of the match-ups in the QD, it's a shame that these two got paired up. Interesting momentum for Korolev to remember that he can play tennis too.

A bit of a shocker, I thought Baker was in the MD for sure, Korolev has been good, but not for a long time, it seems on this day he was.

Great to see Korolev win a match. When he's on, he's fantastic to watch.

We don't know how about his grass Tour 1 win 1 loss, CH 2 win 2 loss.

Bad loss for Brian Probably he has overplayed at Nice and RG, so he was little tired.
Good win for Korolev

Baker should retire after this pathetic loss

People saying that Brian deserved a wildcard is a bit overtly too much. He has done well on clay, but grass is questionable. unlucky to draw Korolev though. Well i think the acceptance list of the event was before Nice so Baker was ranked below 200.

Re: ATP Queen's Q2: Korolev beats Baker 6-4 7-6 (5)

First match on grass in so long, this result isn't a terrible one. I don't think Brian's game translates to grass as well as it does clay and hardcourt. When Korolev is on, he's a good player with the power to outhit someone with the game Baker has, so it's not too bad a loss. Maybe Zhenya will start making things happen again.
