Re: Knoxville Chall R2: Marcus Willis def Tennys Sandgren 6-7(4) 6-4 6-2
Willis has a wicked wicked lefty serve out wide which he hits about 80% of the time, then throws in an ace down the middle whenever he really needs one. He closes in behind the serve really well and amazingly close for such a larger specimen and has great touch at the net. At this level he seems virtually unbreakable, I think that's why Sandgren threw in the towel after that break 1st game of the 3rd. I think Willis could be more effective at creating break opportunities if he'd chip and charge a lot more since he can't really compete very well off the ground. I don't see him as serious ATP level without a bit more improvement, but damn fun player to watch. Between the service game and all the slices & drop shots he gives less rhythm than Karlovic.
