Bjorn in a must-win match playing Jones. Anything but a victory is an embarrassment.

Re: Week 41: Tiburon (Entry List)

Bjorn was up *4-3 and got broken twice to lose the set. So ridiculous. Almost identical to what happened last week. Not gonna get much better than Jones and Ignatik for Bjorn so failing to take advantage of this draw will be crushing.

Great comeback from Bjorn. Hopefully he can close the match out now.

Phau def. Jones 4-6 7-6(5) 6-1

Finally, a tough win for Bjorn. Now, the finals are a very real possibility for him. Has to serve better than 40%, though.

Re: Week 41: Tiburon (Entry List)

Ivo has been coming back in matches quite a bit these past two weeks. Today was down a break throughout the set but won it in a tiebreaker. Good to see that sort of commitment from him, but I'll be extremely upset if he wins this event.

Farah is 6'4 and has won 47% of first serving points against Ivo. This may be one of the worst serving performances in the history of the sport.

I thought the same thing, Smoke. Maybe something is wrong, who knows. Too bad we can't see the match. I'm guessing Robert is just missing shots and volleys more than Ivo doing something.

Re: Week 41: Tiburon (Entry List)

His serve numbers the past about 5 service games have been beyond bad.

I was surprised by this as well.


Also, I don't think Farah has a great serve despite his size. Pretty much just puts it in

Paradorn Srichaphan
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson
