Damn! :o De Bakker could play better. In the 1st set he missed 2 BPs, which were great chance to win the set. Then, in the 2nd set Istomin was better and deserved the win. But I'm still disappointed with Thiemo's missed chances. :confused:

I want Thiemo to get in top 20 by the end of the year, but which such losses, it can't happen.

Sucks that this had to be a first round match :o

Denis was playing great, saved both break points against him, serving well, won 78% of his service points. Good win for him.

Congrats for Denis for this victory and a very good start of the year (One of my underdog favourite player :worship:). Particularly considering that Thiemo is rising and is one of those players with the potential to be a top 20 during this year. I wish a good year even for Denis and Thiemo :yeah:.

Damn............I knew I should have predicted Denis. I think currently, he's the better player. Thiemo can't win tiebreaks and struggles to close out sets. Istomin with great serve statistics. Congrats to the Uzbek on the first win of 2011.
