Shock loss, but he didn't deserve it really. Very bad performance.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Oh my gosh. That was pure disaster from Paulo, but honestly he fatigued at the end, and Menendez was clearly the better player in the third set overall. His motivation levels were extremely high, and he wanted it more, plus he was serving great.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Once PHM lost the second I knew it was over. He should have won like 6-2 6-3. His serve was great throughtout the second set until he game he got broken, and he had numerous break chances through out the second set. I know Adrian was fighting, but PHM has to win one of those seven break points in the second set. He seemed to play too conservately on the break points, like he overthinks insead of just playing like he does normally.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

I agree. I knew it was likely over but was still hopeful He didn't have the momentum, though and Menendez had all the energy at the end. Very disappointing result, not really much can be said about it. PHM had the match in his hands but just didn't cross the finishline.

Carreno hits a very clean ball. Good serve, decent mover, good backhand and forehand, good power. Why has he been struggling? Doesn't have a big weakness from the baseline at all.

Best match quality wise of the day so far between Carreno and Hanescu.

Fucking AWESOME game from Victor to break and win the set. Beautiful lob after a good rally, great wrong-footer shot for 0-30, dropshot and then another wrong-footing shot to win the set. Really awesome.

Hanescu stepped up his game a ton right there to go from break points down to winning the set.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Victor should have won the match at 5-*4. Carreno has shown some bad choking habits today. Vic has stepped his game up at the end of the two sets.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Hanescu def. Carreno-Busta 6-4 7-6(4)

Victor showed his professionalism and experience at the end of both sets. Moved the ball around very well and wrong footed Carreno several times. Kept a good length of shot and served well and intelligently. Carreno showed his talent, but exposed serious mental fragility.

Klizan vs Hanescu will be fun to watch!

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Ungur has GREAT shotmaking ability and quality of shot in general. He hits a really sharp ball and gets consistently great depth of shot. He should be on the ATP tour right now. Too bad he's so inconsistent.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Ungur def. Crivoi 6-3 1-6 6-3

Typical lapse in the second set, but he played a good third set, got out to the early break and held when Crivoi started really going for his shots at the end of the match.

Re: Week 12: Marrakech (Entry List)

Hanescu-Klizan about to start, should be the best match of the week thus far, hopefully Victor wins, but we'll see.
