Laaksonen DF's to lose first set over De Voest. Too bad because the tiebreak was quite high quality from both.

Laaksonen should have broken for 4-3. Terrible play from him to lose a 40-15 return lead.

I think maybe Vasek is a bit arrogant, kind of like the Canadian Tomic, but not nearly to that extent, I do think he has some nice talent, but he doesn't always do the right thing out there on court, he doesn't always know the right shot to play or tactic to use maybe.

His serve is quite good, it doesn't need work IMO.

This loss today just shows the mental weakness that makes the rest of his game not work as well as it should.

Laaksonen def. De Voest 6-7(8) 7-6(5) 7-6(6)

Very tight match, obviously. Laaksonen was the more authoritative player overall so glad he came through. De Voest almost came from 2-6 down in the breaker.

Oh no, Hajek-Marchenko isn't being shown, was looking forward to it.

Looks like both Ilya and Jan are serving well so far.

Is Ilya wearing knee braces?

Pospisil serves at 50% or below in a large portion of his matches. His serve has to be better. He does have some talent. But you're right in that his tactical ability isn't where it should be.

Vasek is also mentally weak and seems to have confidence issues but it's not as if his game is without warts.

I'm actually surprised more tennis players who have had serious knee problems don't wear something, like basketball players do for instance.

Fuck YES, Jan!!! Those were intense rallies at the end of the set. Good job maintaining consistency and allowing Marchenko to beat himself.
