Kozlov served at 91% in JDC today.
The reason for that likely being that his second serve wasn't worth anything at all. Out of the amazingly low 7 he hit all match, he double faulted 3, lost 3, and won 1. I wonder what hw did to get so many first serves in and yet hit them fast enough to consistently win points.

From an interview earlier this year, Stefan said that he worked on his serve a lot (particularly the placement).

I've read that too but 91% is ridiculously good. If that's his norm after working hard on first serves then.... I can't even imagine how good he'll be when he's older and worked more on everything.

My guess is he was just spinning his serve in because it's clay

Maybe he should tell Noah to go for the same tactic.

Will is into the final with a straight sets victory over Moreiras Way to revenge for Reilly, Francis, and Rob. Ever since his loss to Francis at the Les Petits final, Will has been doing very well. Keep it up.

Stefan won his first itf @ Waco last year. I hope that by this time next year, Will will be at a similar position (ranking-wise). At the start of the year, I thought Francis would be ahead of Michael and Will in terms of itf ranking. He got some catching up to do. I feel that Francis is the weakest (mentally) of the three. Too bad, Sell is not his coach.
