Washington R1: F Serra def. B Baker 4-6 6-3 6-4

Serra really picked up his performance, by the look of the numbers.

That is sooo embarrassing for Baker. Off the bandwagon sadly...

I was never on the bandwagon. He's an okay player, but nothing special. The novelty factor has worn off and now he'll be worked out more readily by opponents.

He is becoming typical 50-100 ranked player. Few decent results, few stupid loses...

Really bad HC season for Brian so far,I hope he wins some matches in August.

This guy has basically missed his whole career because of injuries up till now,and now he's in top 80 ,which is a miracle by itself.Only his physical limitations because of all those injuries are stopping him to go much further,and that is probably why he will reach top 50 or something like that at most.But he is an incredible tennis talent,his shotmaking and amazing feel for the ball,well,tennis ability tbh is something mugs like Ramos for example can only dream about,so I don't see why are you making such underestimating statements about him.

Eh?

Baker has lost to Korolev this year, as well as Kunitsyn, Rampras & now Florent Serra.

These are acceptable losses for a 70-100 ranked player, like he is, but a couple of good tournaments doesn't make him automatically brilliant. On the flip side, nothing to be too concerned about. If he's really good enough to progress, results will come shortly.

And Ramos is more talented than Baker.

Mugmos more talented than Baker? Maybe.

Anyway Baker why so muggy? Losing to Serra?

Do not question our motives, our objectives, or our qualities. Question your own place in the universe.

Baker's losing momentum faster than he gained it. Bummer.

Has Baker done well in any tournament where he didn't have to qualify? Maybe that's the solution. Screw the WC's and go through qualifying!
