Too bad he didn't since I'd much rather see Janowicz here than Brown. Andi would have beaten the Pole.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Baker is upset because hit hit a ball that was called out and then corrected in. Baker missed the shot, and it was set point. Baker lost the set and he's been protesting for literally 10-15 minutes.

6-3 Jouan first set.

Jouan had 7 break points before finally breaking and holding after Baker had a handful of break points. Jouan seems really serve dominant but he's a lot like Dustin, he can hit some great winners. Baker is the consistent counter-puncher but lacks weapons.

Grigelis is picking off Berrer's serves. This is not going to be easy for Michi. Grigelis' flat shots and court positioning are giving Michi problems and he's not doing enough damage on return.

Baker def. Jouan 3-6 6-4 6-3

Baker saved 13/14 break points, including a handful the final game of the match. Just too consistent overall for Jouan, kept running everything down, made Jouan hit the extra shot. Also counter-punched well and turned points around from defensive positions. Great win and great week for the Brit.

Mertl def. Mertens 6-4 6-3

Back to back challenger SF for Mertl of all players

Got a good draw and he's taken advantage, good for him. He sure loves fast courts.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

AWESOME defensive slice BH from Michi to win!!!!!!!!

That was a battle, Grigelis was honestly the better player the final two sets. His first serve % dropped in the final game and it cost him. So happy, my man for the title is still in it

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Baker is one of the worst players ive ever seen, imagine his game on a clay court, grass court or even a outside hardcourt medium, fast or slow, he would be so exposed its not even funny.

he reminds of miloslav mecir but worse

lets pray to the tennis gods he doesnt win this tournament

He is a decent counterpouncher when he has form. Last year he played great match with Schuettler in Astana on slow hardcourt.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Dustin can overpower Baker whenever he chooses but his net approaches and constant S&V has hurt him in the second set. Baker is getting a read on returns now. Dustin's volleying comes and goes, he misses a lot of forehand volleys.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Brown won the first set 6-4 and it's Baker up *5-3 in the second. Dustin lowered his intensity for like 15 minutes and that's all it took to lose control of the match.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

6-3 Baker second set. Dustin basically tanked after losing the break in the second. Third set basically comes down to how many errors Dustin hits and if he's getting tired or not.
