Well I've watched the match and I can't say that was "an ugly match". Grigor didn't play at his best but showed a good game in the second and the third set. He totally controlled most of the rallies and made some very good shots. Wish him a lot of luck in the MD. I still wait who will be his next opponent and when will he play.

That's mainly what I meant, wise guy. According to ATP rulebook, qualifiers should be placed after qualifying finishes. Maybe they just waited for Galvani's match, as I've seen before happening (even making the top qualifier seed playing two rounds on Sunday while the others play the last match on Monday).

He totally controlled most of the rallies and made some very good shots. Wish him a lot of luck in the MD. I still wait who will be his next opponent and when will he play.

If you read carefully my report, I said he showed some awesome shots. He had big problems in that match with his backhand (too many unforced errors with that shot) and I also noticed 2 things: too many times he went for winner return and missed it badly (sometimes he did it, but most times not, especially in the 1st set), which isn't required against poor opponents like El Amrani (that he can control from baseline, as you say and is truth); and that he has to train his net approaches, more than once he attacked but couldn't get a good placement to the net.

Unfortunately I won't go to the club on Tuesday so I can't probably see his first round match. I hope I can see him in further rounds nevertheless ;)

Pless retired from the match against Niland while trailing 1-6 0-4.

According to his blog, he's fed up with his current form and decided to retire as his serve was off and his movement was poor. He will skip the next couple of tournaments and doesn't know when he'll be back on the tour.

Jose Checa-Calvo defeated Frederik Nielsen (7) 3-6 6-4 6-1

Nielsen was up with a break at 3-2 in 2nd set and then, according to himself, lost his head and timing.

Crappy week for the Danish male players :help:

He really have been struggling lately against his own game. Hopefully he can find his skills and motivation to be back soon.

Apparently according to Filippo's report ( http://www.tennisalternative.com/news.php?readmore=507 )Marco was upset with some decisions in the first set, he sat down and ate bananas in the middle of the game, and had no warning for it :tape: This made him lose the focus and lose the set. If he comes to post here he might give more details, sounds piss funny :lol:
