I'm currently leaning to Oswald to beat Grigelis in the next round. Did you see any of Oswald's match to compare it to?

I didn't see it but I do know Oswald dominated on serve vs Navarro. Navarro is an awful returner, though. Oswald relies on his serve a lot. Grigelis really should win that match.

Michalicka seems like a good returner. He's a former college kid. Michi needs to dominate here with his weapons.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

I put on the Berrer $1.10 candy into Oswald at $2.15. Decided on taking a risk, but I see Grigelis goes up an early break, then Oswald blows 2 opportunities to break straight bck

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

I hope it works out..............I wouldn't favor Oswald over Grigelis. But if he serves big, he can win it.

Michalicka has the type of game that can cause Michi some problems. Hope he keeps serving well.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Grigelis has been struggling on his serve quite a bit lately, but his return game surprisingly improved by leaps and bounds...interesting, since he was pretty much all serve at the start of his career

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

True, I thought he was a serve guy but apparently he isn't, or at least he's developed into someone who relies more on his return than his serve. It's fine if he can find a way to hold his serves easier than he has been in many of his matches lately.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Michi is serving great and dominating second serve points. Good performance overall, Michalicka could have been tricky. This really is his title to lose.

That was an awesome way to start the match from Andi. Extremely effortless hitting, great returning.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Good serve numbers overall for the Lithuanian but Oswald isn't the best of returners. He got the win he needed to, though, and has taken advantage of his draw thus far.

Re: Week 12 : Bath (Entry List)

Ryderstedt has turned things totally around. Serving well, returning really well, and he's absorbing Beck's pace and counter-punching effectively. Andi is having a hard time beating Ryderstedt from the baseline.
