Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Luke is into the semis after defeating the fourth seed Alex Bolt 7-5 6-0. Now plays James Duckworth. Summary of the match from http://www.tennis.com.au/pages/News....se&newsid=7951

Quote:
Bolt, seeded fourth, raced away with an early break and looked poised to take the first set.

Saville regained his composure and fended off several more break points, stealing the set then taking absolute control of the match.

His power from the back of the court was impressive, producing winners from both sides and sending a clear warning to his next opponent.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Luke lost to Duckworth 63 62.

http://www.tennis.com.au/pages/News....se&newsid=7957

Quote:
Opening the encounter with an ace, Duckworth was in fine form from the early stages of the match. In stark contrast, Saville was forced to fend off break points in his opening service game, which added to the mounting pressure. The break came in the fourth game, as Duckworth moved ahead into a 5-2 lead and later closed out the set 6-3.

In the second, Duckworth broke a dejected Saville in the first game, later having to save break points against his own serve to lead 4-2. Moving around the court with ease, Duckworth appeared to have all the answers to Saville's game. He took the second set 6-2 but insisted that he must improve if he is to take out the final.

“I think we were both a bit nervous, probably wasn't both our best match ... it's always tough playing a friend.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Luke produced an upset by defeating Joel Lindner 61 76. Great performance from him considering Lindner beat him 63 64 a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Luke lost to Mahut 60 61 in just over 40 minutes. Hopefully he can do well in the junior AO.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Luke must be the favourite for the Junior Open out of the aussies, he has made it through to the semis of Loy Yang Power Tralagon International after beating 13th seed Mate Delic of Croatia 2-6 6-3 6-3. His next opponent will be Belgium's Joris De Loore who is the fifth seed.

Joris has played two aussies so far in the draw and both of them he won in straight sets but it wasnt that easy for him, these two have never played each other before.

Andres Artunedo Martinavarr def. Luke Saville 2-6 6-3 6-2, bad luck on the lost hope he can go one better at the Aus Open.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Luke is progressing along well at the AO Juniors. Defeated Adam Pavlasek in the first round 75 62 and then defeated the second seed, Dominic Thiem 75 64. Although Thiem is the second seed Luke will probably encounter tougher opposition if he hopes to progress deep in this tournament. Plays the 15 year old, Nikola Milojevic in the next round.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Into the QF after defeating Milojevic 46 63 86. Very tight but good to see him pull through in the end. Next up is Lucas Pouille.

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

He plays Roberto Carballes Baena next who already has a hard court Futures title. Good news is that Luke beat him 7-6(4) 6-2 when they played a couple of weeks ago.
