Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Jonesie served for the match at 5-3 in the 2nd but Santiago broke. Jonesies next serice game he won to love - go figure? Held his nerve though to win the tie-breaker 7-5 and advance to 2nd round

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Jonesie did not start well today. Dropped serve 1st game and fell behind. Lost 1st set 6-2. Played much better in 2nd set and had break-point opportunities but did not convert. Led with a mini-break in the tie-break and had set point, on serve, at 6-5 up, but Witten denied him that point and broke again to serve out the tb 8-6.
Disappointing for Jonesie

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

After a well earned two week break, Jonesie was a bit rusty in losing in the 1st round of the ATP Newport qualies, on grass.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Jonesie drew his nemesis Donald Young, the 3rd seed, in the Aptos Challenger. Jonesie has previously lost to DY in the semis at Junior Wimbledon and twice on the Men's Challenger circuit. He managed to win the 1st set 6-3 but DY rolled him 6-1, 6-2 in the next two sets. I think that is the first set Jonesie has won against DY, so encouraging signs but needs to works on playing the full three sets.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Jonesie and Feeney made the dubs final in Aptos last week. Fell to the "Twin Towers" (Gooch & Ball) in straight sets. A good effort for their first pairing at Challenger level.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Kuznetsov 2-0 now in H2H, as Jonesie went down 62 62. Not his best performance. No doubt lack of preparation will have been a factor, due to late arrival in Lexington after a late departure from Aptos due to the doubles final being played on Sunday. Can now prepare early for the next tournament as he is not in doubles main draw, due to being in Aptos!
Reports are that Jonesie was suffering from a very sore right elbow, so could not get his serve going. Hope that clears up before Granby.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Good win By Jonesie. He battled through the 1st set, saving a few break-points along the way. Was never headed in the tie-break although it was quite even, But he was more dominant in the 2nd set, unlucky not to break a bit earlier, breaking Polansky at the end of the 2nd set and then confidently serving out the match. Good luck in the second match Jonesie.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Good solid win for Jonesie over seasoned Klec. Faces a tougher challenge next up against Kamke, who Feeney pushed in losing 6-7, 4-6. Time for Jonesie to step up his game.

Re: Greg Jones Cheering Thread

Kamke too strong for Jonesie, dismissing him 6-3, 6-2 in the QF at Granby. Jonesie has not entered in Vancouver so may try his hand at the qualifying in Washington DC this weekend, if he can make sign-in.

Fortunately for Greg there was an entry list for qualifying in Washington so he was always going to play unless he beat Kamke. He plays Salamanca first round of qualifying which will be tough followed by a possible second round encounter against Ryan Sweeting which also won't be easy.

Hopefully Greg can have some more good results over the US summer and he can get back in the top 200.
