Pajkowski and Berard could both win a match against a non-Canadian, I think they are the 2nd and 3rd best non-Canadians in the qdraw.

I think it will be Levy over Evans here in the final.

Peter takes the first from Kamke, 7-5 in the TB. Lots of breaks of serve, Peter was broken serving for the set at 5*-3, then fell behind 5-6*, but broke to stay alive, and then won the breaker.

He then breaks to open the second, up 7-6 1*-0. Peter is 4/4 on his break point chances so far :cool:

Peter wins, 7-6(5) 6-4 :yeah:

His serving was night and day between the two sets, only winning 50% of service points in the first, and dropping just 4 points on his serve in the second.

Cook up next, a great shot to make the semis :cool:

Widom vs Anderson ??!??

Where's the score ?!?

Blarghman
07-30-2009, 06:57 PM
Duclos drops serve at 5*-6 in the first to lose the set :(

Not sure of the score for Widom-Anderson, but based on the time, it was surely Anderson in 2, as Niemeyer was on court by 1130, and there's no way that match could have finished a third set.

-Niemeyer should get WC without question.(if it's between Bruno and Neimeyer)
-He represented Canada many times playing Davis Cup and Olympic.
-Bruno is good news for Canada.
-There are many years ahead of him to play and prove his ability to play at higher level.
-One step at the time!

Did it again today, having a tough time in beating Berrer/Kondo 6-7(5) 6-1 (10-8). I'm pretty sure they were down 6-3 in the Match TB, but then turned things around.

Peter loses the first set to Cook, 5-7 :o

He was down 3-4*, then broke back at love, but was broken again at 5*-5.

He was up 0-30 at 5-6*, and had 5 break points in a long game, but couldn't get the break back :(

C'mon Peter, get the comeback :yeah:

Saved 3 BPs, including 30-40 second serve

I'd tend to agree with your assessement, Emerald, but as you said, not seeing the match, it's tough to say. I'd say 'dominated' might be a bit strong, though.

Both Peter and Anderson cruised on serve until 5-5, then Peter got broken. Just like yesterday, he had BPs to force a TB, but this time he got it done, saved a set point at 5-6*, TB coming up :)
