Brown def. Baker 6-4 3-6 6-2

Baker got Dustin MAD when he complained about Dustin's rituals/habits. The players had an argument and after that, the match totally changed. Dustin got focused and started being a slight bit more consistent while continuing to go for his shots. Totally overpowered Baker in the end.

Michi vs Mertl now. I will be so, so sad if Michi doesn't win the title. I'm fine with Dustin being in the final, but I'm scared he may take the title here, which would be awful. Hopefully not.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

I can't believe it. Michi just lost to JAN MERTL of all players. I'm so embarrassed. Such a devastating loss. Top 100 chances now look extremely bleak. How disgusting.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

First time I see him play, but he has some game. Of course a very good serve but also good base line game.
Very strange he had such a terrible last few months.

Mertl def. Berrer 2-6 6-4 6-3

Michi was clearly completely tired at the end. The match yesterday took everything out of him. It's his own fault, since he had no business being taking so far by Grigelis. He blew his chance of the top 100. I'm so disappointed.

What could have been a Beck vs Berrer final becomes this. Pathetic.

Mertl is pretty horrible overall. Confidence does wonders.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

I only saw the last games, but he completely outplayed Berrer from the back. Lots of winners, aggressive play, looked good. I thought he was more an all-serve guy.
Wins over De Bakker and Berrer is very impressive.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Michi was tired, IMO, had Michi held his serve the first game of the third set when he had 40-15, he'd have won the match. Anyway, his *first* serve is good, he plays a lot like Karol Beck. Very similar style of play to a lot of Czech/Slovak/Croatian/etc. players. Usually, he makes mountains of errors and hits many double faults. He likes fast courts so the courts the past two weeks suit his game.

His wins are impressive until you look at the context of the victories. He's riding a confidence wave.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

His first serve is actually very dangerous, at least from what I´ve seen from him, he is serving bombs left and right...and yeah, he is definitely a fast court sepcialist, and they sometimes make such surprising runs like this one indoors.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

yeah michi was already dead against grigelis, i don't know how he won that one

good last 2 weeks from mertl, he is a very cool laid back guy, one of coolest who have ever played in wroclaw, actually i'm happy he has his 5 minutes now, although yes he can be so raw on court sometimes

I will burn
And you will die...
