Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

embarrassing player this Torebko, how James Ward got beaten by him is beyond me.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Torebko is a decent player, but he's sort of wild, is mentally weak and can lose to anyone. Plus playing a qualifier who would have match practice here and be motivated, not surprising he lost.

Golding looks overwhelmed, really. Andi isn't playing amazing, just solid. Poor performance from the Brit.

Grigelis cannot hold serve whatsoever. Dismal service numbers. He's really regressed.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

funnily enough i think rycka's success drove him to want to do better. almost like a friendly competition thing. With rycka out the motivation may be gone a little

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

I agree, Misty. Also I think maybe just being on the challenger tour for a full-season really for the first time is something he's having to adjust to.

Grigelis did come back to win the second set down a set and break. He's really cleaned up his service numbers and has had more opportunities than Fischer on return in the third set. This would be a good win for him so let's see what happens.

Grigelis def. Fischer 4-6 6-3 7-5

Grigelis broke and held to win the match. Had to save some break points his final few service games and did so. Great win for him. Two guys who have better returns than serves, it isn't too surprising the match played out in this way.

Torebko played the future event last week and won it at the exact same facility in Bath so missing match practice is not the reason. Mental weakness and a too bad first-serve rate kill his game. He needs his serve because thats one of his biggest strenghs.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Oh yeah, I forgot about the future, I remember seeing he played it. Guess the pressure of playing a challenger tournament and the added pressure from winning the future in Bath got to him. His first serve percentages always seem very low and he double faults too much. I don't rate Torebko that high solely because he's inconsistent as can be and I don't think he's a great match player nor has a great feel for the game. Also, I agree about the mental weakness.
