A win is a win, but you need to raise your level for the next round, Picasso

Next up: Probably Murray :scared:

A champ doesn't want to overwork himself. Magic slice

Its a pity The Slice didnt play in australia this week... maybe he couldnt get in... the more the aussie crowd see of The Slice, the better... i am sure he'll reach legend status this year if he wins a match or three...

Very disappointed in this start of the season. Thought Petzschner was a pretty good draw, and I think Jérémy should be able to handle Philipp's game pretty well. Argh.

Why would that be the case? Chardy is an error hitter and most error hitters aren't good against slice and tempo changes. The H2H was also against him.

Petzschner's baseline game is below average, so I thought Jérémy's serve would enable him to maintain serve very easily, while being able to break Petzschner once or twice in the match.

You are right about Jérémy struggling if someone can keep the ball in play with a lot of slices, just didn't think he'd give Petzschner much of a chance to do that, especially not on his own serve.

I don't think it is about slices, Philip played ok, Chardy was in the mood that he wanted to win the match easily. When it didn't happen he started to play with attitude 'fuck it, i don't really care about my missed shots).

Hence many easy points of the Petzchner's serve and that's why he won.
