Very clutch at the end of the third set, he was really fighting for something. And in troubles he could count on his serve.

Dopesnik defeated Polish Querrey in R1 but the original one was too big.

Grats to Caveman Sam. Would have been nice if there was a bagel thrown in there, but can't have it all.

Way to go, Sam. He really did just refuse to lose. He faces his second doper in a row in Chela.

that's pretty much what it was, especially from Wayne who refused to look at him. Just stuck his hand out and was already turning away when Sam reached out to shake it. Good for Sam, he did the right thing and took the high road.


Wayne is entered in the Rome Challenger the same week as Barcelona (after Monte Carlo). According to Bonnie Ford's twitter, he said he plans to go and play it.

Let's hope Wayne can take this title in Rome or in Tunis. Today was a bad result for tennis. The second set tells that Odesnik was the better player, but he probably choked at the end.

I noticed the handshake was very strange. Is there history with these guys? Do they hate each other?

Querrey was pissed off at Wayne all match because he believes Wayne shouldn't be allowed to still play.

He even said at one point after he was broken, as he walked to the chair something like "this guy shouldn't even be in the tournament".

Also he attempted to hit a forehand at Wayne's head on set point in the 2nd set.

Quality stuff, and good riddance to Odesnik :yeah:

This was a fun grudge match to watch even if I couldn't really hear what Querrey was saying and mostly relied on the commentary. Querrey looked pissed off the whole second set and third set and glared at Odesnik everytime he wanted to look at a mark. Then at one point, Querrey circled a massive mark on the clay when Odesnik wanted to look at a call, which drew gasps from the crowd. Apparently he told the umpire to make sure that Odesnik is circling the right mark.

There was an awesome 26 shot rally late in the third set at 30-30 on Odesnik's serve I believe. Another one of the most memorable parts of the match was when Querrey served something like 2 or 3 double faults in one game, then he shouted at himself, "Oh my god, three double faults in a row" then the next second serve he goes all out and hits a second serve ace down the T on the deuce court. Amazing.

It was good to see Querrey prevail in the end. :yeah: There were plenty of heavy forehands in this match.

I saw a side of Querrey that I quite frankly didn't like. Odesnik is entitled to due process, and Querrey was way out of line imo. Sam is generally one of the more laid back players on the tour, yet from the moment he stepped foot on the court yesterday he was noticeably agitated (which had quite a negative effect on his game, I should add). Sam publicly showed Odesnik up several times over, including screaming out "THIS GUY SHOULDN'T EVEN BE HERE!!!" at one point so that everyone in the stadium could hear. Hitting the ball 100 MPH right at Odesnik's head was unnecessary too. I was almost certain that Odesnik wouldn't shake his hand at the end.

Odesnik is not the most popular guy in the challenger locker rooms (and the smuggling image has taken the contempt to new levels), but Sam really took the fact that he was even out there personal. Future Querrey opponents might wish to take note, as a pissed off Querrey is really thrown off his game...
