what i meant was that gilles has been drawn to face golubev in order to qualify as a potential opponent

Fognini 6-3

Golubev has done very little since winning Hamburg.

Expected -> one day wonder.

Winne Fognini by retirement.
Golubev´s title at Hamburg was clearly a fluke. One of the most overranked guys in the Top 100.

Filo V.
08-14-2010, 02:59 PM
Golubev retired to Fabio down 6-3 3-1.

I won't say fluke Chaz, because he can put weeks like Hamburg together. He has game. More like consistently mediocre, but the opportunity for high level tennis. He'll just never be a real top level player, which is what some people thought he was after Hamburg.

Russell 7-6(2) set one.
I've never seen Smyczek play. Could you say anything? Was his good shape in LA some exception or sign of climbing?

Filo V.

Tim is a good counter-puncher, good mover, decent first serve. Regular challenger level player but he's definitely improved, he's been in good shape this season, he's had a good year.

Filo V.
08-14-2010, 03:51 PM
Good revenge for the French Open loss, Somdev. Hopefully he doesn't blow it in the next round, but knowing him, that's a definite possibility.

misty1
08-14-2010, 03:53 PM
marco really suprised me

given his form heading into these events i pegged him as sure to qualify for both and then he goes and loses in the first round of qualifying in both

Filo V.
08-14-2010, 03:56 PM
Marco is overranked and extremely inconsistent, IMO. I'm surprised he lost to Salamanca last week, but I think Washington where he played a long match and then flew to Toronto within a day and played took something out of him. Also I'm guessing he tried to bash the ball past Somdev and it didn't work.

Filo V.
08-14-2010, 03:58 PM
Come on, Arnie, get this win here.

Marsel I guess will be next on court 3.

misty1
08-14-2010, 04:18 PM
i'd like to think that, with fognini taking out golubev marsel's chances of qualifying are better but i dont even know what the chances are that he'll get past giraldo

im kind of counting on giraldo having a bad day and marsel playing better then he has been

Mayer won 6-3 6-4 over Beck.

Marchenko fighting, Smyczek serving at 5-4 now in the third.

Marsel being killed by Giraldo, not surprising.

Giraldo can hit Marsel off the court, and Marsel has nothing to hurt Giraldo with at all, other than movement. On these quick courts that is neutralized.

misty1
08-14-2010, 06:07 PM
well he's atleast fighting in this set maybe if he's not brokn he can gain something

i feel so bad for marsel, his confidence must be so low right now and this cant be helping

Adorable conviction about ponderous, abysmal baseliner Becker, just charming.

Filo V.
08-15-2010, 02:31 PM
I think Somdev because he's more consistent than Smyczek, Smyczek is going to try to play aggressively which isn't his game, and I think he'll make tons of errors.

Filo V.
08-15-2010, 02:33 PM

No rain?

Yeah, Marchenko I guess had heat-related issues. Really hot and humid in Cincinnati.

It's supposed to be dodgy weather in Cincinnati today but so far, they are playing.

Now I hope that Becker will be drawn to Blake and Mayer (if he qualifies) to Ginepri. In general the qualifier who is drawn against Ginepri has a good shot at R16, because we all know Davydenko is not in form.

Taylor can play some good ball, but he's a limited player against ATP competition, he's always been a limited player, and his serve isn't quite as good as it was before his injury. But he can still put together some good performances, and these courts suit his game.
