i have no idea what happened to troicki in that last set, it was a complete melt down.

He wasted 2 break points on kohli's opening service game and from then on hardly even won a point on his own serves, going down 0-40 almost all 3 times.

It seemed like a close match up until that point

did anyone watch this that can provide some explanation?

like i say kohlschreiber went from 30-0 to 30-40 on his opening serve of the 3rd set and then there was adv. troicki but after kohli held on viktor fell apart

he wnt down to 0-40 on all 3 service games and was broken to love to finish the match

Troicki can just completely give up out of nowhere, terrible attitude.

certainly seems to be the case

its like he didnt even fight

But im happy for kohli, he now has a good shot at a quarterfinal and he can gain some good and much needed points there

if kohls was about 30% mentally tougher, he could do some damage at slams. he's got a lot of offensive firepower.

Backhand = Vicious, best one hander on tour when it's on.
Forehand = Not so much, but still big.
Has a big serve too, and decent everywhere else, apart from the mentality department.

Kohli wrote on his website that there was a close line call at the start of the second set against Troicki. That could explain his 3rd set. I remember he did sth similar in Zagreb QF against Berrer, after a, for him, wrong line call he didn´t play well anymore.

Kohl has a lot of problems that limit him:

1) Struggles to get remotely interested unless it's top8 across the net
2) Forehand grip means his timing is really stretched on faster surfaces (check his record on Decoturf)
3) Lack of power means he's limited on the really slow ones - he has nice topspin but not the patience to use it effectively in the endless rallies needed
4) Height and single handed backhand means it's easy to bounce it above him on that side


Always good to watch when he does wake up on the right side of the bed though.

I was there. On break point down in the 2nd game of the third set, Troicki hit a backhand down the line that he thought was good. The linesman called it out. (I was sitting on that sideline and couldn't tell for sure if it was in.) Troicki started yelling at the lines man, asking him what he was doing out there if he couldn't see. He then went and sat in his chair. When the umpire said it wasn't a changeover, Troicki told the chair there was no point in playing with calls like that and that he would not play unless the linesman was removed. The chair said he could not do that, but had the linesman switch places with the other sideline judge(I'm not sure what he thought that would accomplish). Troicki still refused but then the ump said something to make him play again. (Most likely that he was going to start calling time violations.) Troicki didn't go into complete tank mode, but he was still complaining about the call until 5-0. It's a shame because both guys were playing really well.
