Viktor will play Thomaz Bellucci in 2nd round Bangkok. Viktor is seeded 4th and has a first round bye!

He reached 2nd round here last year so he has to win to defend his points.

Viktor also has to defend points from last year QFs in Tokyo and Moscow. Good luck!

Good luck to him, Bellucci is in decent form at the moment :unsure:

Ad Wim

Watching the match right now on a live stream. Long time since I've seen him playing live (Umag) and it isn't as bad as I thought. Bellucci has started very well but Troicki survived through his first games and is playing better now. Although it's still far from his best.

He does seem fysically okay.

Hope he can win this, he really needs it.

Tristanslav
09-30-2009, 03:21 PM
he's doing ok. Taken the first set 6-3, and only looked in trouble on his own serve on one occasion. Bellucci's serving well, but Vik is all over his second serve. As long as his foot holds up and his own serve keeps together, he'll get this in 2 I reckon.

Ad Wim
09-30-2009, 03:47 PM
Ouch, misses a 15-40 on 4-4 in 2nd set. Very good chance on the 2nd bp. Troicki is the more consistent player, but I feel that he really needs to win this set...

Tristanslav
09-30-2009, 03:51 PM
Yeah i totally agree. I think Vik could get frustrated if he doesn't take it in two. And his conditioning may not be great right now. He's not having too many troubles on his own serve (opponent has only been past 30 on his serve once in whole match), but it just takes one bad game, and suddenly we're a set all. Or a bad tie break. Well, he holds again, easily for 5-5. Only 6 points conceded in his serve all set.

Ad Wim
09-30-2009, 03:54 PM
Again chances, 0-30, and then three awful points, such a shame. Hope he gets to the TB and that the 2nd set serve stats follow through there...

Tristanslav
09-30-2009, 03:58 PM
nice start, mini break on the second serve ;)

Ad Wim
09-30-2009, 04:01 PM
Nooooooo, come on! He shouldn't get frustrated by that return on 3-0. He should stay aggressive and doesn't cut the pace.

Tristanslav
09-30-2009, 04:02 PM
3-3 at the change over. 3 straight points for Bellucci. Grrr.

Ad Wim
09-30-2009, 04:04 PM
Bellucci serving great now, that's bad.

Ah finally an overrule in favor of Vik, *5-4!

Ad Wim
09-30-2009, 04:05 PM
Yeeeeeeeaaaah!

My god, he needed this!

Tristanslav
09-30-2009, 04:06 PM
yep....massive decision for Vik. And gets the tiebreak 7-4. Not perfect by any means, but enough. I fancy his chances against Isner if that's who he gets in the quarters.

Ad Wim
09-30-2009, 04:09 PM
Isner or Zverev, he is both the favourite imo. And I think it was pretty good today, and he didn't show any sign of fysical discomfort, that's maybe the best thing.

Can't believe this guy needed 5 sets against Dustov...

Lee
10-01-2009, 05:01 PM
Hopefully will watch the match on espn360.com tomorrow morning with Viktor's match last on OOP. It's tough to follow the tournament when OOP starts at 10pm here.

Viktor will play Isner who is high with confidence defeating Roddick in USO. A tough match but if Viktor plays his best, he has the chance to win.

Ad Wim
10-02-2009, 04:42 PM
He is playing now and does pretty well, winning first set in the TB.

He is especially serving very well, better than Isner. Surprisingly, he is the lesser player in the rally's. Isner takes more risk and it gets paid off. Troicki is making too many slight errors from the baseline and plays too safe, and Isner is taking advantage. He should go more for his shots and not wait for Isner to make the error. But what the hell, he is winning :D

Tristanslav
10-02-2009, 04:42 PM
Great start from Viktor, gets the first set on a tiebreak, 7-3. Never in trouble once on his own serve, banging down more aces than Isner.

Ad Wim
10-02-2009, 04:47 PM
Ouch, he misses a 0-40 right in the beginning of the 2nd set :sad:

Should have really made advantage of those weak points by Isner.

Tristanslav
10-02-2009, 04:48 PM
yeah frustrating, especially as Isner has been nowhere near his serve at all. Still looking good, but would be nice if he could make it a little simpler :)

Ad Wim
10-02-2009, 04:53 PM
Aaaah, what chances again, 15-40 missed. He isn't going for those 2nd serve returns.

He has to break, because you don't want to go to the TB with Isner, especially not after all these missed bps...

Ad Wim
10-02-2009, 04:55 PM
The good thing is though that Vik is playing really well now and again doesn't seem bothered by any fysical discomfort.

Ad Wim
10-02-2009, 05:04 PM
Yeeeeaaahh! Justice!

Tristanslav
10-02-2009, 05:07 PM
Brilliant. Took him 8 attempts, but finally gets one. Now just got to serve out twice, and he's in a very decent semi final.Obviously Tsonga is clear favourite, but this sort of serving performance shows that, on his day, he's a real test for anyone. As i'm typing this he gets the jitters and has to save a breakpoint, so i'll shut up now, lol...

Tristanslav
10-02-2009, 05:11 PM
2 match points...

Tristanslav
10-02-2009, 05:12 PM
wow. Congrats vik. Double break in the second set, and had breakpoints in EVERY Isner service game in the second set. Quite stunning!!

Ad Wim
10-02-2009, 05:15 PM
Vamos! In this form he can definitely beat Tsonga tomorrow!

Lee
10-03-2009, 07:50 AM
Only watched a little of first and second sets. His ground game in 2nd set improves a lot and thus the result.

Hope he plays well vs Tsonga today.

Bravo Viktor 1-1 in set :D

Lee
10-03-2009, 10:29 AM
Missed the first set and I guess it's a good thing.

Viktor plays very well and Tsonga doesn't look interested in the match at times plus he looks tired.

Ajde Viktor and HOLD!

If Viktor continues to play like today, he has a good chance vs Simon. He has to expect more balls keeps in play by Simon though.

Lee

:lol: Viktor was mad after losing the first set and he hit the net hard with his racket. This time when the ball touched the part of the net that he hit, the ball bounced over and landed in. :lol:

Ad Wim
10-06-2009, 11:54 AM
SB stuck on 7-6 6-5 30-0, but I guess he has won. Good comeback and a good fight after a tough week. Djokovic next will be exit, but still 45 points added to his total and another good win.

Lee
11-09-2009, 03:32 PM
Viktor won 7-6(5) 3-0 ret.

Not a great performance by Viktor but he served well. When he's under pressure, he served BIG with aces or unreturned serve. He had 16 aces in 8 service games.

PHM had problem on his right food between ankle and calf. He requested to see the trainer while Viktor was serving at 5-6 adv but Bernades told him he had to wait until TB. :o This disrupted Viktor (we know he likes to play fast and non-stop) and he lost the next 2 points. Then he came up big with 3 aces/service winner to get to TB.

PHM was treated before TB (Viktor did not even notice it and got ready to play and Bernades had to call him back to his seat :lol:) but he mostly gone. PHM did not move well afterward but I feel it's more his heart was not there :shrug: He was up 40-15 at his service game but lost it. And when Viktor served to 3-0, he called it quit. Viktor was surprised (so as everyone else there) when he walked back to his seat for changeover, PHM shaked hand and quit.

good win for him

he's playing so well, i dont get why he isnt playing paris because he could do some damage
