Dissident
01-07-2003, 02:57 AM
Guga played a great match, under the circunstances (first match of year, the Oceania jinx, the opponent´s attacking style and etc.). He was perfect on his serve, except for the game where he was broken, and a little bit too conservative on Verkerk´s serve. Had he attacked more, maybe it would have been a bit easier.

Martin had a clear strategy of forcing the game to short points. His serve is good, and he has a pretty good bh. His mind didn´t take the task when he most needed (first set tiebreak, second set serving to stay alive).

Anyway, Guga´s serve is sharp, he looks fit and well prepared, and totally relaxed and confident. THAT is the key right now.
Just keep like that and take it to the Aussie. ;)
he won the first match, I´m happy already. Now on to Russell. :D
