Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

If Greg can get his serve going he should be able to get through the opening round and be around the mark against either of the second round opponents!!

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Greg makes easy work of the first set with a 6-1 scoreline. Won 84% of points on serve and 60% when returning.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Yeah great start from Greg i picked him too win but didn't think he would start so good, the last time they played each other Jones won 7-6 7-6, but that was on hardcourt.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

After being a break up in the second set Greg loses it 6-4. Hopefully he can keep it together in the third.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Shocking finish i really thought he was going to absoloutly flog him, but very very very disappointing finish, needs to do better at Wimbledon good luck to him there.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

I wonder if something was wrong with him in the 3rd. Not good.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

That's what I was wondering as well. He was in cruise control until midway through the second set. I think he may have even been up 4-2 in the second and then didn't win another game.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Nothing wrong with Jonesie at the FO qualies. It was just a huge momentum shift... after missing break point opportunities against Cervenak at 3-1 and 4-2 up, Jonesie dropped his serve at 4-3 for Cervenak to level.
From then Cervenak's stats improved out-a-site. He went from a decent 60% 1st serve in the 1st set to an amazing 92% in the 3rd, while Jonesie dropped from an excellent 74% to just under 60% in the 3rd. More significantly is that Cervenak's returns improved, reflected in the fact that Jonesie only won about 6 out of 15 points when his 1st serve went in in the 3rd set.
No doubt a lesson somewhere in that runaway train wreck for Jonesie.
Hopefully he is in main draw at Nottingham next week... still 1 out.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Jonesie made the cut and got a decent draw, a qualifier in the Nottingham Challenger. Did not follow it up with a good performance though, going down to Simon Stadler in two sets

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

After 4 losses in a row good to see Jonesie building some confidence with a close 63 76(4) win over Ryler Deheart in the first round of qualifying at Queens. Good luck in the next round Jonesie

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Drew Tursonov in the 2nd rnd of qualies. Good effort by Jonesie, pushed Tursonov all the way on the back of a good serving display. Jonesie broke Tursonov early and served for the 1st set but could not get to set point, saved 3 or 4 break points before Tursonov eventually broke through and took the set to the tie-break, which he won 7-4. Jonesie broke Tursonov early in 2nd set and held on to take the match into the 3rd set. Tursonov served at a amazing 100% for the 1st 4 games of the 3rd set, and having broken Jonesies 1st game, shut him out. Jonesie had a break-point opportunity at 4-5 down but Tursonov denied him and served out the match. A very good performance from Jonesie. Pity he could not convert the 1st set opportunity. It should give him some comfidence for the Wimbledon qualies, if he gets a decent draw.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Jonesie on fire 1st set in Wimbledon Qualies. Up 6-0, 2-2 when rain stopped play against Santiago Gonzalez. Let's hope he can finish it off.
