Re: Week 28: Scheveningen (Entry List)

did you see Cedric Willems play? What a joke he is. Went pro after one year of college here at Clemson, where he didn;t even start in the top 6. And Clemson wasn't even that good of a team

Paradorn Srichaphan
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson

No, I arrived late so I wouldn't have to endure most of these all-Dutch matches (which must have been beyond dreadful, based on the matches I did see). And I left before his second qualifying match, which was the last of the matches to start.

Tiago Fernandes BRA [6] beat Gustavo Guerses BRA 6-4 6-3

The only good tennis I saw was Fernandes vs. Guerses. Really intense and long baseline rallies, with few UEs in that first set. But I had to leave after that. I really liked Guerses, with his aggressive game and his composure. Fernandes has the most annoying grunt I've heard in a while and looked absolutely miserable. He let out a big roar after winning the first set and Guerses rolled his eyes They didn't seem on particularly friendly terms.

Thiago Monteiro BRA [5] beat Stephan Fransen NED [WC] 6-2 6-2

Thiago Monteiro was there to support Fernandes. He looked pretty terrible in his match against Stephan Fransen. He has some nice groundstrokes and is able to generate a surprising amount of speed on them as well as on his serve. But I think Fransen's erratic ball-bashing inspired him to produce some of the wildest UEs of the day. I've seen Fransen play a couple of times before and when he's on, he is actually pretty good (reached R16 here in 2009). He has a big serve and big shots. But with his all-or-nothing game, today it was mostly nothing. The quality was so piss-poor that I had to leave after the first set. Oh and Monteiro looked like he hated being on court as much as Fernandes.

James McGee IRL [1] beat Scott Griekspoor NED 6-1 6-3

Saw this match until 6-1 *2-1, and then the final two games as well. Griekspoor was rivaling Fransen for the most UEs. Pretty much every baseline rally in that first set would end with an error on the Dutchman's side. He got very frustrated with himself. He was particularly upset about his low first-serve percentage, it seemed. I like McGee and he is the main reason I probably came out today. He was pretty solid, but not too impressive (but didn't need to be). After the match he spent about half an hour practicing his groundstrokes, so it seems he wasn't too impressed with his own baseline game. The Irishman did serve very well, with Griekspoor not having a chance in any of the service games I saw. On the baseline I think quite a few guys will be able to outplay him. Still, he should be able to beat Monteiro today.

Rameez Junaid AUS beat Morgan Phillips GBR [4] 7-5 6-3

Saw only the last four games of this match, just when Phillips was complaining like crazy to the umpire about some call that he had made on what seemed to have been a decisive point (Junaid was already up a break though). The Briton played here before in 2010 and I think named him one of the worst players I'd ever seen back then. I think he now deserves a little bit more credit than that, but he is really not a world-class player. He has a great serve and that's about it. I quite like Junaid, but he is much better in doubles than in singles. For Phillips to be competitive in baseline rallies with him isn't good. To rephrase that, for Junaid to be up to par with Phillips on the baseline is testament to the Briton's ability. The Australian did come up with some nice net play. He should be able to qualify now over Oostdam, but then should be an easy scalp in the first round here. Still, it's some nice prize money.

Wesley Koolhof NED beat James Feaver GBR [8] 4-6 6-0 7-6 (5)

Saw the first set and the last five games of the final set. Koolhof was by far the best Dutchman that I saw yesterday, simply because of his relatively low UE count. The match was pretty mediocre though. The lefty Feaver has only one game plan: hit topspin-laden forehand after topspin-laden forehand. His backhand is subpar and he isn't too good on the defensive either. He fights hard though. Feaver's grunt is also pretty present Koolhof didn't have any clear weaknesses nor strong suits; he was a pretty decent, complete player that has no shot at being a competitively ranked player but that nonetheless can be very proud of his performance. The match really could have gone either way in those final games, and Koolhof looked to be choking away an early lead in the tie-break, but he prevailed in the end.

Matthew Pierot NED beat Joop Bos NED 6-2 6-3

Bos dictated the baseline rallies in this match but finished almost all of them with an UE. Very low-quality match about which I can't say much more. Pierot and Bos seemed to be good friends though, with Bos joking after one good point "and now let's turn the match around" and Pierot laughing along.

Yannick Ebbinghaus NED beat Purav Raja IND 6-3 3-6 6-1

Only saw the first game and WTF? Raja is an overweight pusher. His physique resembles that of Labadze in his old days. He has no baseline game whatsoever; it's actually embarrassing. Ebbinghaus, apart from a good serve, is pretty nondescript. He wears nice Björn Borg underwear I guess.

Alexandre Sidorenko FRA [2] beat Bobbie de Goeijen NED 6-1 6-2

Saw this match in its entirety. The lopsided scoreline doesn't quite reflect the match though. Sidorenko seemed to have one strategy: stay solid and let the Dutchman self-destruct. That worked quite well in the first set, of which I can't recall a single winner from the Frenchman. As an aside, Sidorenko had to take a medical time-out because his finger was bleeding It didn't hinder him at all though. Then in the second set De Goeijen really upped his game. He started to make way fewer mistakes, but remained the dominant player in the baseline rallies. Some really nice points in this second set, but ultimately Sidorenko was too solid. It will be interesting to see how Sidorenko adapts his game against Fernandes, because I was very unimpressed by his lackluster-yet-sufficient performance yesterday.

Re: Week 28: Scheveningen (Entry List)

stream link?

McGee seems to like playing on clay but results say hard is is his best surface (and fake grass of course).

he changes surface almost every week. not sure if it's the best scheduling

Re: Week 28: Scheveningen (Entry List)

Monteiro beat McGee 4-6 7-6 (5) 6-2
Sidorenko beat Fernandes 6-4 6-3

Didn't expect those winners after yesterday. But I think Sidorenko might have upped his game against a more credible opponent.

Hopefully McGee is in for a LL spot. Timo Nieminen injured his back or shoulder yesterday in practice and couldn't continue on, so who knows.

Re: Week 28: Scheveningen (Entry List)

were you there Martijn?

I watched until rain delay and the match was always on Monteiro's racquet.

His weapons are a bit bigger than I realised. McGee was serving well but wasn't doing much in the rallies.

For such a good mover he really doesn't defend well enough on clay. The tell-tale sign that he's not a natural mover on clay is that (similar to Murray) is that when he does slide it's usually after hitting the ball, as opposed to sliding into the shot.

He was never able to reverse the momentum of a rally once Monteiro hit a big shot.

No, the weather forecast was bad and I had other engagements.

I guess Thiago managed to keep the error count under control. Yesterday he showed great groundstrokes as well, but huge mishits as well. Your assessment of McGee is in line with what I saw yesterday, but I thought he would be too solid for the Brazilian.
