Aus Open reports, pics etc

Day 1 qualifying

Darcis def Coelho

Darcis has a nice game, hits hard off both sides and has a good serve. Coelho didnt serve well, doing many DF's including one on bp and one on match point. He was way too inconsistent too, and Darcis had no trouble and was always in control.

Niemeyer def Lindahl

I only saw the 3rd set and Lindahl was the same as Coelho, he was too inexperienced and made simple errors when he should have kept the ball in play. Niemeyer was solid and that was enough for the win.

Meffert def Vinciguerra

Vinci played pretty bad, but I suppose thats to be expected as he hasnt played in a while. He was about to be bagelled in the first but then managed to fight and hold serve, then he played better in the 2nd set but still coudlnt win.

Junaid def Mertinak

Rameez was absolutely on fire. He was playing his normal serve volley game, and hitting serves, volleys, and groundstrokes very well. He looked very confident and Mertinak didnt play his best but I doubt he would have won even if he had. Michal got very frustrated and flung his racquet against the well hard. Rameez was really happy with his form at the end and thought he could make the main draw.

Udomchoke def Stakhovsky

Stakhovsky was not very impressive, he didnt have that much power on his shots and not a great serve for someone that tall. Danai played well after the first set, played a very smart game, keeping the ball low on his opponent, and got to every ball. Danai led 4-2 in the 3rd set but then gave the break back with UEs, and games went with serve until Danai finally managed to break again at 7-6 to win the match. Tammy Tanasugarn was there for most of the match to support him.

Gremelmayr def Heuberger

Ivo was in pretty bad form, he made way too many UEs. Gremelmayr has a nice baseline game and passed Ivo a lot.

Re: Aus Open reports, pics etc

Qualifying Day 2

Fleishman def Junaid

Zack played out of his mind today, being aggressive and dominating every point with hard groundstrokes from the baseline. He was great at the net too, and held serve easily all the time as Rameez couldnt touch his serve. Rameez was struggling on most of his serves, but managed to hold on to most of them, only getting broken once, in his first service game of the match. Rameez fought hard and managed to get 4-2 up in the TB, but then gave the lead away with a missed 2nd serve return, and 2 netted volleys (one was difficult as it was low, but one was high and easy). Zack then served out the TB. Rameez was really positive after the match though, he knew that he played ok but Zack was just playing the match of his life, but felt that if he'd been able to take the 2nd set, Zack couldnt have kept up that level in the 3rd. I think Fleishman finished up with 40 winners and 16 UEs, which was insane. Obviously it was a great day for him, if he played like that all the time he'd be top 50.

Smeets def Montcourt

I only saw the end of this, but Rob was playing great. He was being aggressive on the returns, hitting hard and volleying really well. He served out the match to love, with no sign of nerves at all, and finished with an ace on match point. Montcourt has solid groundstrokes with good pace on them, he has a nice game to watch.

Lu def Klec

This match was really close, Klec was more aggressive and went for more winners, but made UEs at crucial moments in the TB, and Lu was too consistent for him.

Luzzi def Vico

Luzzi was getting really fired up, and kept saying "Forza!" whenever he won a point. Vico got down an early break in the 3rd and then looked like he was tanking.

Joseph def Berrer

Joseph was playing well and hit a lot of winners in the 3rd set. He was the better player but got tight when serving for the match at 5-4 and got broken. He managed to break again though, and served out the match the 2nd time.

Snobel is my new hero. Wasn't there a guy who used to do the smiley face on the racquet thing before him?
