Re: Week 5: Kazan Russia (Entry List)

very good play from Marius, hard to really say anything about Zopp, he's been facing cripples (or Heliovaara whom he leads 5-0 h2h)

Re: Week 5: Kazan Russia (Entry List)

Quite surprised to find Copil doing it well on Kazan again (won title last year). Two years ago he reached the final in Cremona coming from Q but vanished on weak performances. The same in 2011 after winning in Kazan. Hopefully he may have a quite more stable performance along the year in 2012

On the other hand I`m glad to see Zopp in the final and I hope that he can win the title tomorrow as I reckon he is a top 100 material.

Last year, after Kazan, Marius faced some injuries, but this year I think he can reach top 150 at least.

Zopp has had a very fortunate draw, hopefully he can play well in the final and bring home his first Challenger title.

Copil fails to serve out the 2nd set and gives the racquet a serious thump back on serve now.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Indeed, but one of the line umpires shouted "out".

Also, in the first tiebreak at 2-0 for Marius, Zopp sent a ball out, but the umpires hadn't any reaction. Marius got nervous at that moment and he lost the first set.

Good win, his first challenger title. 100 points also are nice, he has lot to defent in Bergamo, it takes some pressure off .

Re: Week 5: Kazan Russia (Winner : Jurgen Zopp)

deserved one tbh, but there was this one controversial moment

Zopp delivering lately; will be interesting to see how he'll do in ATP quallies (unfortunately for him when his ranking encourages to try the clay will start...)
