Re: Week 45 : Knoxville (Entry List)

Kudla has a clean and clever game, might be a good one to watch for 2013

Re: Week 45 : Knoxville (Entry List)

Denis I'm glad he didn't participate in the No Shave November. Brad will probably end up looking like big foot by the end of the month. Rhyne doesn't look too bad yet.

Re: Week 45 : Knoxville (Entry List)

Groth broken from 7/6 *5/4 40-0...but breaks right after, 7/6 *6/5

And he wins 7/6(3) 7/5 after trailing a break in the 1st set...looked relieved in the end after missing some MP...Sweeting looked very slow...

It's a golf bet a few of the American guys have going on. Smyczek, Kuznetsov, Reynolds, etc. Wait till you see Smyczeks mustache next week. He lost a wager and has to shave his beard and go with just a mustache.

Re: Week 45 : Knoxville (Entry List)

Russell def. Kudla 4-6 7-6(5) 6-3

Pretty mediocre match, but Mikey did it. Huge for him and the AO MD participation.

Re: Week 45 : Knoxville (Entry List)

Kudla can do much much better than this. He was very close, had 2 crucial BPs at 6-4 5-5 (40-15*) but made 2 stupid UEs there. I haven´t seen him that much so far, but this was clearly the worst match from those. Russell wasn´t bad but still very beatable. Only if Denis played at least 80% from his best, it could be enough. Denis is an interesting talent, he should be winning matches like this. Disappointment for me.

Re: Week 45 : Knoxville (Entry List)

Yeah, not a good last half of the match from Denis!!! He looked in great form last week, maybe just tired??
He is still only 20, so hopefully he can learn from this and just keep improving
