I wonder if one or a couple of the Spaniards who lost early in New York play here, like Riba or Montanes.

Ruben has an OK draw, but hopefully he doesn't lose to the kid Carballes. He can lose in any of the rounds but also has a realistic shot at the SF.

I like Pere's draw for two rounds, but Ciric potentially in the QF is not nice, even though his form hasn't been great. Ghem can give him trouble also potentially. Hopefully Pere makes the SF here but I'm not confident in his form nor fitness.

DGT can probably lose to and beat anyone here and it all depends where he's at with his level and if he's past whatever sickness he had at the USO, so his draw is irrelevant. The final will probably be Ramos v Riba, but I hope it's RRH v DGT.

Ciric played really badly. Should have won the first set but wasted 6 set points in the tie break, and had to save match points in the third set. Served his way out of trouble but will need to improve to go any further.

Epic match in some way

In first set both players exchanged service games with relative ease until *5/6 with Cervantes serving when Ciric had two SPs. In TB Serb it was 6/2* for Ciric but he wasted 4 SPs and ended the set with DF.
Ciric was simply the better player in the second set. After taking the only break in the match he won this part 6/3.
Cervantes saved one break point in second or third service game of 3rd set. Ther won service games quite easy, but Ciric was forced to defend two MPs in 12th game of decider. But then he won 4 points in a row just with the serve. In TB he had comfortable result, but hit easy put-away-forehand into the sky at *5/4. Unforced error from Cervantes on Spaniard's serve was the last point of the match.

Ciric was the better player, he should have won it much easier but he didn't do his best on big points. Luckily for him, Cervantes was even worse and managed to smash a few more racquets. Great serving from Ciric should be noted.

Tristanslav
09-06-2011, 10:42 AM
I thought the overall level was very poor from a player with the form Ciric has on clay, and a ranking just outside the top 150. Some of the unforced, especially on the backhand side were inexplicable. I saw him a couple of weeks ago in San Marino and he looked pretty good, but if he'd have been playing a better player yesterday he'd have lost comfortably. As you say, serve was impressive. I didn't see an Ace count but I would guess it was towards 20, but Niko is a better player overall than he showed in this match.

I live really close to Sevilla and , by far, I can say this is not the warmest week you can find in a summer here. We had some days at 44-45 degrees Celsius last month.

Filo V.
09-07-2011, 08:04 PM
Yes, but they still did affect him today, so he's probably got a sickness, that is made worse with the heat. Having experience in these conditions doesn't protect anyone from sickness, and when you're already in a vulnerable health condition, playing in the heat isn't the best.

I still think he'll win tomorrow, though. I expect an all Spaniard SF lineup.

supertec
09-07-2011, 08:06 PM

But he is from the north-east of Spain, and temperatures are quite different from the south-west, where Sevilla is placed.

and he took a set to Nadal!

Filo V.
09-08-2011, 03:43 PM
Well, Nadal wasn't in any condition that match. Any decent player would have taken him out. Lorenzi is one of the worst top 100 players I've known. But he manages to find ways every season to finish within top 150, so I'll give him credit for his spirit, even though he sucks.

FrankSolitario
09-08-2011, 03:49 PM
believe it or not these are some of the names Lorenzi beated this year: Andujar, Kavcic, Bellucci on clay and Ljubicic on hard, plus a set with Nadal
well results speak for themselves, but it's still incredible

Pere fell down 0-*3, then had 2-*3 30-0, but couldn't win the set.

He should still win this match. He's got a big serve himself, he looks better today than he did his first two matches, and Ciric isn't consistent off the ground.

Filo V.
09-08-2011, 05:26 PM
I'll be very pissed if Pere loses. Ciric can't ruin everything here by winning. He needs to do what he needs to do. The illness will be less of a factor because there won't be many long rallies in this match.

Pere hit about 5 lobs the final point and it was seemingly obvious Ciric would eventually miss one, but he didn't shocking. But then he missed an easy volley at the net to lose.

Ciric just isn't good enough outside of the serve to be a serious factor.

Ruben starting the third set well, and if he loses this match it will be an embarrassment.

Ramirez-Hidalgo def. Riba 6-4 2-6 3-0 ret.

Pere finally completely physically wilted. Hope he recovers for Bucharest. Great tournament for him nonetheless.

Ruben now must win the title.

DGT's game is a lot better than Ramos' is. But that backhand is Massu-level.

Best match I've seen from Daniel this season, so far. Still too much inconsistency but some really good shotmaking. Even hitting some good shots with that backhand I criticized.

Great week for DGT. He probably will win tomorrow and he should. Really excellent match today from the end of the first set onwards.

DGT hits the ball too well for RRH. Disappointing, I want Ruben to win but he's not looking capable.

Ruben let Dani off the hook by making three errors the final game, when DGT hit zero first serves. That was his opening and he didn't take advantage. But at least he's given himself a chance to make top 100 this season and his form has definitely improved lately.

Daniel was very happy after winning and you can see how much this victory was a big relief for him. Great to see him hitting out on the serve and forehand and getting back to the authority and confident shot-making that he had in 2010. Very much needed big week for him.
