Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Did you see that look Kuznetsov just gave to Pippo? I can see why he's not giving in on the break points, now. He's determined as hell not to lose this

Too passive from Pippo on the break points, again. It's unfortunate. So many chances, but not playing positive tennis when it matters.

he knows there's nothing wrong with him and that it was a douchebag move to pull

i wish there was some way that that could be prevented.Taking a timeout to try and throw the other guy off is pathetic

I agree that in principle it's wrong, at the same time, it's a move that has been pulled off many, many times before. You have to be professional and not allow it to throw you off. Kuznetsov made it personal and allowed the timeout to throw him off, and with that, he can't blame anyone but himself.

yeah but how likely is a young up and coming player going to be able to deal with that well as compared to someone like volandri

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Match has COMPLETELY changed since the medical timeout. Kuznetsov looked completely gassed physically. Pippo started playing more offensive tennis, and there you go, from *3-4 down to 6-4 second set.

Re: Week 11: Rabat (Entry List)

Kuznetsov got mad at the ball pop as well, remember. Complained that he missed a shot because the ball was dead. Then he missed a forehand to get broken. So it's not all Pippo here, since he had gamepoints to hold for 5-3. Kuznetsov lost his focus and couldn't keep his head together.
