I agree. Even though I have never seen him play, it takes more than just plain pushing to defeat many quality opponents that are much older and physically stronger than him. He doesn't have power to outhit his opponents (b/c of his small stature), so he has to outsmart them. Some people compared him to Tomic and Tracy Austin compared him to Hingis because of his variety and ability to manipulate the court (said that he has high tennis IQ).

Here is a description of his gamestyle from an opponent:

Quote:
"He definitely makes you think," Krueger said. "He's got incredible potential--I don't that I've ever seen a player like this, maybe Donald Young--and I think he has a chance to maybe do what Donald did. If he keeps going, he'll do very well. I don't know how to describe his game. A lot of slices, drop shots, lobs, just a lot of kind of nothing balls that make you create a lot. He doesn't miss much and can pull the trigger all of a sudden. I think I did well just to hang in there as well as I could."

I am happy that at least one American made to the next round. Mitch, albeit his match was played yesterday on a non-clay court .

Halys, Ismailov, Quinzi, and Coric all move on. (I'll let you post the scores)
This is a Grade A and yet the semifinalists are a 17 yr old, Quinzi who turned 16 this year, and two 15 yr olds (Halys and Coric). I really feel like this upcoming 1996-1998 generation will be the next group that dominates all the majors and masters.

Borna and GQ Too bad they have to face each other now.

Squinzia was down 1-5 in the first, and saved two match points.

Quinzi def. Coric 61 60

Amazing performance by Gian, he totally demolished Coric. Winners from every side of the court, great defense, great movement, great serving. Poor Borna, there was nothing he could have done today
