I'm very happy because he played much better groundstrokes than in USO,and the fact that he won a match against Baghdatis without his biggest weapon-serve.Only 6 aces,and 50 % of the first serve.
I hope he will serve better tomorrow,he can beat the out form Fena.
Beijing is finished story.
Ivan will play DC next week.After that he has 2 weeks off.
Then it's the final run.4 weeks in a row,Vienna,Madrid,Lyon,Paris (hopefully Shanghai ).I wish him,best of luck,I wish him to do great in indoors,to get his confidence fully back,and to keep improving,playing more and more aggresive and good tennis.Because I saw improvement this week in Beijing.
in his interview, ivan said that he was exhausted. it just sucks that he couldn't close this out because he played a perfect first set and gonzo really wasn't in this match at all. he lost so many points when he had short, midcourt balls to put away, it was ridiculous
my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world
Should of won it but i dont really care Im just glad its indoor season now and we can see Ivan and his serve. Beijing was the slowest conditions ive ever seen. Slow court and the ball wasnt going through the air at all, it was worse than hamburg. Id be willing to bet Ivan will have more aces his 1st indoor match than all 4 matches he played in Beijing combined.
