No thread? Not the biggest names, but certainly a notable scoreline. Is this the start of something big for Saretta, after his opening round win over Safin in Hamburg?

At first I wonder how it happened he's playing a Slam instead of a challenger :ignore:

Good job Saretta and keep going! :yeah:

I don't know if it is, but I perceive that he certainly changed his mental attitude on court in comparison to previous years. I've seen him give up on a few matches in the past when he started facing the first troubles, but apparently his new coach Jaime Oncins started working on that aspect. It's the first time he wins a match coming back from two sets behind.

He still lacks consistency though, and I don't see him getting past Davydenko in the next round.

He's no stranger to winning marathon matches though, just check out his early-round exploits at Wimbledon a few years ago - defeats Johansson 12-10 in the fifth in the first round in 2002, then for an encore comes back the next year to outlast Calleri 10-8 in the fifth.

Yeah, like most players at his level, he plays better when he has nothing to lose.

Didn't he work with Oncins before?

He started with him in January.

Who are his previous coaches?

Who are his previous coaches?

As far as I remember, from the most recent one to the less recent one: João Zwetsch, Fernando Roese, Carlos Chabalgoity and Pablo Albano.

Starace should be disappointed, he really needs to fulfil his potential. He has all the abilities of a top 40 player, but he never shows them.

Not a big surprise, if you take out the Guga phenomenon, the level has been pretty much the same over the years.
