Korolev is never ever going to be a force in this sport, twice in a row he blew a 40-0* lead on Gicquel serve at the beginning of the third set, so many chances wasted, if this is not fixed, nothing is...

For sure the soviet mafia is happy to have this kid on their side, alongside Kunitsyn, Andreev, Tursunov and Gabashvili...

Korolev is either a fixer or a moron. Maybe both?

Probably not.

It should be against ATP rules to lose 2 0-40 opportunities against a mug like Gicquel. :lol:

We know what Korolev is like, it has been mentioned several times what kind of physical issues he has, it's not a huge surprise that he loses a third set, he probably just lacks stamina with the injuries he's had.

Looks like my bet was spot on again. I honestly thought I'd made the worst bet ever after the first set. Not sure how Korolev managed to lose actually.

I can remember Granollers having 0-40 on Clements serve three games in a row last year... didn't break... Crazy shit.

Korolev is a moron. There's no question about it.

Gicquel didn't play well in qualies, so this win is surprising. Not that Korolev was playing that great himself, but he was still doing better than Marc.
