Just because of this result, he should not be given the US Open wildcard.
Smeets has lived off TA hand outs this year, and what has he to show for his efforts? Diddly!
6-1 6-1 7-6 and 6-1 6-0 6-0 he lost his last two main draw matches at Grand Slams, there are other players like Groth and Klein who are younger and better prospects who deserve the wildcard.
Still, congrats on the title
