Very very frustrating....
What a tough match to have to watch or follow on livestream. I didn't see it but just saw the scoreline. JC had the first two sets - what happened after that? Did Troicki raise his game or did Juan Carlos start to run out of steam. Certainly, after he lost the fourth set tiebreak, he all but gave up mentally. But he also lost the third set way too easily. Do you think it was a matter of fitness?
Like you all say, JC had a tough first round but he should have taken it in three. (Easy for me to say
But he does still have the game and there's no pressure on him rankings-wise right now. I think he needs more match play to get into a groove again. Hoping for this certainly.
