Hopefully he draws someone like Mugdasco which would be an easy win.

Go Philipp!

Good stuff from Phil, he should be able to win a round or two with the right draw.

Even after he lost the third set, I was confident he would win. Sure enough he started off the fourth and fifth sets with a break of serve. Great job.

:woohoo:

Now please give us a good draw. He still needs to earn about 70 points here or in Newport to qualify for the US Open.

I like Petzschner but losing to two sets to Adrian Cruciat on grass is nothing to be proud of...Cruciat with his beard looks like he comes from Biblical times (as his name suggests) and he has an utmost claycourter's game.

:worship: I know. He has indeed the 2nd best slice since 2002, when Siemerink retired. :worship:

Cruciat was really good the rounds before though. I expected Slanar to have a better chance against him. But I must say Cruciat has a very solid baseline game. I saw him against Abel last year and he was in control most of the time, so I can understand why Philipp had trouble.
