Re: Clay, clay ... time to show yourself

Round1
Igor Andreev (RUS) - [WC] Simone Bolelli (ITA)6:3, 6:4


Round2
[4] Marin Cilic (CRO) - Igor Andreev (RUS) 6:7 (4:7), 6:1, 6:4

Bitter defeat



The fact that the first set tie-break on the remains of Igor is good, but then know how to fold sometimes decisive 13th break games for him.
At the beginning of the second set there was a decline, just 0:4. There have been attempts to win back, but failed. Twice as many mistakes at Igor in the second set 11/22, although the active wins 10/12.
But the third set was smack on the roller coaster with its ups and downs.
Already in the third game of the Igor provided just fantastic opportunity to lead with breaks in the form of a triple break-point, but each time after receiving a second feed to complete the drawing in his favor could not be.
Then how is it not strange confident in their game after such filing, and again the chances that this time using Igor, the behavior of 3:2.
But unfortunately he confidently held game to its filing and remained the only
Under zero lost his own serve, but after the break again and again to defeat. 15: 15 and the rope broke, who played in favor of the Marina, good luck .. Oh, you ...
Igor again lost its filing, although the first break-point played a brilliant combination with a shortened, but the second failed
And more ... Marin comes forward, easily taking the game, and the reception ends the match, because Igor was unable to impose a fight here, which was until then (

The match, which could culminate in the victory of Igor, to whom he was close and who could give him confidence, ended with the defeat
Pity

Re: Clay, clay ... time to show yourself

He was playing pretty well and really should have won. Needed to hold onto his serve after a couple of breaks in the 3rd and just couldn't do it.

Re: Clay, clay ... time to show yourself

Tournament Name: BARCELONA OPEN BANCO SABADELL
Category: ATP World Tour 500
Place: Barcelona, Spain
Date: 18.04.2010-25.04.2010
Draw Size: S-56 D-24
Prize Money: €1,550,000

MAIN DRAW SINGLES http://www.barcelonaopenbancosabadel...chivos/MDS.pdf
MAIN DRAW DOUBLES http://www.barcelonaopenbancosabadel...chivos/MDD.pdf

R Gasquet (FRA) d I. Andreev (RUS) 7:6(7:5),6:4




In the first set, Igor twice went ahead making the break, but failed twice to maintain their advantage.
In the end, Seth came to tai-break.
In tai-break Igor immediately played great at the reception and led 1:0, but lost two of its filing. In general, inferior to 2:5, won another in the reception, and filing with the capture of the difficulties. The Frenchman has helped a little bit of his double and an error, when Igor is well accepted. Account 4:5, take two points from the filing Igor would have earned setballs.
One picked up - was a good one.
But the second could not.
He had chances to equalize, but failed forehand.
Set lost and a break - the heavy rain began.
Statistics of the first set -

In the 2 set immediately gave his submission (although led 40-15), then made a reverse break, but again lost serve.

Do not change the course of a match after the first set and lost to Igor.
Total match bad

Re: Clay, clay ... time to show yourself

Hey everybody! Remember me? Back after a while gone, I've seen Igor and his results haven't bumped dramatically upward though

From what I have seen, Igor seems to lack confidence, his second serve is a weakness now and gets attacked constantly, and he is stuck in a rut of losing in general, and it has affected his game entirely. He hasn't improved enough if any and the game is going to pass him by if he doesn't get it together. He's almost out of the top 50, so it's time for him to pull it together.

Re: Clay, clay ... time to show yourself

Okay guys I'm back...It looks like I didn't miss much (Igor) !

Oh well here's a little bit of what his draw in Italy (I have to go there one day!) looks like.

[3] Rafael Nadal (ESP) bye
Pablo Cuevas (URU) - Philipp Kohlschreiber (GER)
Victor Hanescu (ROU) - Michael Berrer (GER)
Igor Andreev (RUS) - [16] Juan Monaco (ARG)

Damn can this guy ever get a good draw?Monaco is probably going to give him a beat down in the first round!I guess that's what happens when your ranking drops !

Re: Clay, clay ... time to show yourself

Apparently Monaco is injured and in bad form... like that means much where Igor is concerned right now though. Hope he can win
