Time for on-court reports and it's not gonna to be many!
YAROSHENKO, Sergei UKR d. (WC) KONIUSZ, Blazej POL 6-1 6-2
It was sad for me to watch. So many people gathered in the small stand to celebrate the juniors AO champion and he lost disgracefully to the hangovered Ukrainian. Błażej showed us two different kinds of shots - one group provided shots wide or long, and the second group was about to pack them all in the net. He as the person to lose the match, not Yaroshenko to win.
(8) CHRAMOSTA, Ladislav CZE d. STANCIK, Jan SVK 6-4 7-5
One guy was dressed in a fluorescent green shit and blue panties, the second was wearing the same shade f blue shirt, but his panties were white. Both were having more imagination than skills and both were making more unforced errors than winners (crossed out, written "anything else"). Time after time the one in the blue shirt "played a Nalbandian" from forehand or double-handed backhand to the right conrnet of the court. He also used more power in his game. In the end, he turned out to be Jan Stancik (according to some interested enough chicks) and he lost.
(2) DELGADO, Jamie GBR d. (WC) TERCZYNSKI, Bartosz POL 6-2 6-2
Jamie was reading a book about golf before this match ("It's also about tennis, you know") and didn't even try to concentrate as much as yesterday. All the free time he spent on sending SMS to James Auckland if he's already here (each time he got the same answer: "I'll be here in 15 minutes"). Bartosz Terczynski is a talented thing but came to the court scared as hell and so the match looked like. I had a dinner while the match happening, but I don't think it was anything more than just Jamie few times more experienced. If you ask about his serve, he often used second serve but it was enough. His match against Diłaj would be interesting.Bartek tried to serve and volley - but you know: it needs experience and not just some general idea. When the opponent plays ball harder than fellow juniors in your club, you can't do anything.
DILAJ, Maciej POL d. (WC) GAWRON, Marcin POL 6-4 6-3
Very interesting match, perhaps the best match today, mainly because of Gawron. I haven't seen him befre, but I read positive opinions about this junior player, who had to face the 27 y.o. older brother of the tennis playing twins (currently on scholarships in US). Maciek Diłaj, despite his age, is improving from tournament to tournament and he's aggressive and can keep up in rallys. Gawron lacked regularity from the baseline and was surprised by the sudden rotation changes by Diłaj. He was just used to srong "bang-bang" even from one corner to another. A sudden dropshot or topspin changed the situation. Will it be enough for Jamie Delgado? We hope no. We want at least one Pole in the main draw after quallies (and I need something to write about).
(3) ZELENAY, Igor SVK d. POKRYWKA, Marek POL 6-3 7-6
Two years ago the most interesting thing about Zelenay was the thing that he had shirt from Adidas and panties from Nike, this year he's got all clothes from Adidas. He hasn't changed his style - serve and goes to net at times, while Pokrywka plays a strong game. Last year in Q he played 3 sets against Alex Hartman from Sweden (yes I was supporting Hartman). This year the strong support for surprisingly talented local Pokrywka wasn't enough for the more regular Zelenay.
(5) KRALERT, Petr CZE d. DEVOTY, Theodor CZE 3-6 6-1 7-6
I haven't seen much. Sorry.
(4) MASIK, Jan CZE d. NIJAKI, Radoslaw POL 7-6 6-4
I was writing a text then so I haven't seen it, I only know Radek one day complained abou his bellyache problems (one that match), today he was coughing just like me and showing up with "Coldrex" so I guess it was for him the big deal to go and fight, like it was for me at my failed exam.
(7) TERESHCHUK, Orest UKR d. ROSOL, Lukas CZE 6-4 7-5
Hmm... Tereshchuk isn't that bad..
I didn't see too much to write. I think I wrote enough from today anyway.
