If Simon keeps the error count down, he'll win. It's essentially the same plot as the first two sets. It all comes down to how well Simon plays/serves.

Damn, this is a ground breaking win for Simon. Kick started his season this week.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Pere usually wins matches like this and he probably expected to win this match, so I can understand his anger. Simon played a very composed latter half of the third set and started coming to net more and overall, played aggressive tennis without being reckless and cut down on the errors he made in the second set and start of the third. Very good win for Simon.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Klizan should make quick work of Olaso today if he plays anywhere near decent.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Klizan should win here judging from his recent form - he really looks like a solid ATP level player recently.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Klizan isn't really playing great today and doesn't really seem to be all the way there energy wise and has a 6-0 3-*1 lead. Olaso has been pathetic.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Klizan has improved a lot, but I don't think he'd succeed with high success in ATP tournaments, at least not yet. His focus still wavers and he has weaknesses that ATP players could exploit. But he does have a game that does translate well to the ATP tour when he's playing the best he can. Good power off both sides, good serve, and he can volley a little bit.

My intuition was he was going to take the title here and I still expect him to do so. If he does he'll be inside the top 105 and put himself in position to make the French directly. He can be very dangerous on those courts.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

well, he's tall powerfull baseline hitting leftie - those qualities are kinda rare even for ATP level. If Bellucci can do it, why can't Klizan?

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Difference in serve, difference in rally shots, difference in backhands and I think Bellucci has better movement/balance around the court.

They are very similar players, but I see Bellucci as someone who does almost everything a little bit better, with a little bit more shotmaking ability.

Pippo making some bad errors early. This match should be a cakewalk for him if he's in form.
