Rieschick serve good yesterday 11 aces , i think Bhambri and Jimmay can be suprise

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

Ito won 76(5) 67(4) 63. He needs just one more win to get into the top-100

Sugita lost in two tiebreaks against serve-machine Groth

Jaziri overcame an awful start and beat Wang 06 64 63

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

Hopefully, Groth continues serving like a machine and takes out Jaziri. I do NOT want Jaziri to be in the top 100. He winning this event would be only slightly less bad than Soeda doing so.

Ito needs the points as he defends a challenger title in a couple of weeks. Gritty win for him today over a good opponent in Bhambri. He's the favorite for the title now, IMO.

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

I don't necessarily hate him, but I do think he's way overrated. Dramatically overrated, for several reasons. And that makes me resent him quite a lot. I think he's an average challenger player and I think most of his following that he's gotten now are bandwagoners.

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

If he makes top 100, he'll drop out of it as soon as he makes it, so I don't want him to make it. I'd rather guys who I know could maintain a spot there take it.

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

I think it would be nice if he makes the top-100, even if just for one week. He's 28 already, and as you said, he probably won't last long in those positions. That would be like a dream come true for a player who has been playing mainly Futures in his career till some months ago, and also great news for Tunisian tennis (and Arabic tennis in general).

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

Ito vs Moriya in semifinals is great. Finally a breakthrough tournament for Hiroki. He won a future on grass two weeks ago, and if he keeps up with this form, we'll be able to see him playing Wimbledon qualies in a few months (I think he's pretty good on grass and fast surfaces; probably a future top-100 as well)

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

funny scorelines yeah

jaziri isn't really overrated, but the fact he's a laid back player from arabic country (and handsome, imo ) makes him generally liked. the effort against tsonga gave him more popularity. i think people miss a character like younes el aynaoui on tour, well younes was one of a kind, but jaziri is a very nice and relaxed guy too (younes game wasn't any special, unlike arazi's, but younes was loved nevertheless)

we rarely see someone from that region breaking through. also look he's such a late bloomer, i think he partied too much when he was young

ons jabeur should have a better career than him also, isn't selima sfar working for al jazeera now?

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

would be good to see Jaziri in the top 100 for several reasons.

Regional representation, nice game, great personality for starters.

Oh and it would annoy Filo V? Well there's another.

Re: Week 10: Kyoto (Entry List)

I agree on the regional representation aspect. I actually thought about that last night, and that's the ONLY reason I would be happy with his presence in the top 100, because yeah, based on everything I've read and seen, he's a relaxed, cool dude, he has a relaxed demeanor on court, but guys like Brands and Robert have similar dispositions and I don't like them. I don't care about the sentimental aspect. But it would be cool to see an Arabic player making a breakthrough and hopefully spur more Arabic representation within the sport, and it would be a great moment for his career, and maybe he'll prove me wrong and make something more of it.

I still believe, though, that Tsonga match is where the bandwagon really started. I'd say 80% of people who follow him here didn't even know him until that match. I think he's a flash-in-the-pan player who can make a deep run 4 weeks in a season and that's it.
