Re: Week 44 : Eckental (Entry List)

4 DFs in the last game from Ram and he still held. It's early but that will probably cost Mertl.

Re: Week 44 : Eckental (Entry List)

Well, Mertl has been holding his serve very well this week as well. I guess they will reach tie-break in the 1st set, and that will be very decisive.

Mertl is missing too many first serves this game.

Re: Week 44 : Eckental (Entry List)

And that was a huge letoff for Mertl. He made I think one first serve that entire game. Two set points saved, 5 all.

Yup, that's what it's looking like.

A couple great returns from Mertl so far in the tiebreak.

Re: Week 44 : Eckental (Entry List)

Those couple good, confident returns were enough for Mertl to win the 1st set.

I still think that Rajeev with a reasonably good chance, just needs to keep holding his serve and take some of the rare opportunities on Mertl's serve.

Re: Week 44 : Eckental (Entry List)

Rampras isn't playing that great outside of his serve today, though. Some good volleys too, but I think Mertl has this as long as he can maintain his level.

Re: Week 44 : Eckental (Entry List)

Missed first serves from Rampras this last game, and a DF to get broken.

Mertl is a choker so this match is not over.

Longest rally of the match, ended on a Ram BH error.

Re: Week 44 : Eckental (Entry List)

Mertl def. Ram 7-6(3) 6-3

Mertl played well outside of the end where errors started coming, but three first serves got him through down BP in the final game.

Raji was pretty poor outside of his serve. Out of the top 100 he goes.
