Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Shame he couldnt sneak that win out and open the draw up...needs to get some more points happening and get that ranking up in the top 200.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Jonsie is playing a challenger even in America this week and takes on Fritz Wolmarans in the first round. Good chance to score a win here.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Good chance for Greg to score a win here if Wolmarans serve is slightly off. Fritz relies on the big bomb a lot...

Jonesie got the first set 64 off Gooch, but succumbed in three sets, going down 26 36 to the big guy.

Brisbane QR1: Jones Def Groth 7-6(2) 7-6(3). Good work Greg. Looks like a match up with top seed Kamke is next will be tough ask.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

I hope Greg does well in Sydney as the selectors are going to be scrutinising him very closely for the wild card. If anyone like Millman/Guccione continue to do well in Brisbane he may miss out.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Jonesie stepped up in round 1 of qualies in Sydney, beating 110 ranked big serving giant German Daniel Brands 7-5, 6-3. Worked his way into the match, matched Brands to get to 6-5, then broke Brands to get 1st set. Dominated Brands in 2nd set to lead 5-1, then serve out match at 2nd offering 6-3

In second match Jonesie went down to No.3 seed American Ryan Sweeting 6-2, 7-5. Match was played in windy conditions (Homebush of course) and was a closer affair than score-line suggested. Jonesie played well but did not cope with the power of Sweeting at first, then worked his way into the net and the match.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

I agree with RustyOz's assessment. I only watched from mid way through the second set and he was definitely matching it with Sweeting particularly in the power department. Just a few points here and there proved the difference sadly. Such a shame he had to be on court 9 as there was no seating or room for anyone to really see. It was latish in the day and I am sure there would have been a better court around.
