Bogdanovic and Sijsling should be tired, Dustin Brown possibly too, Dimitrov will be furious now and wil try to reach final at least. Berankis - Janowicz very interesting match. Darcis, Kavcic, Bogdanovic, Reister, Berankis, Janowicz will battle for a sport in final too. BTW higher point distribution.

Dustin Brown shouldn`t have many troubles to be one of the semifinalists. Dimitrov has a very tough match on the first round against Ram but if he manage to succeed he will be one of the finalists.

On the bottom half of the draw there are some interesting clashes like Berankis vs Janowicz, the winner of that match and Bemelmans or Boggo. Kavcic has a good draw but I`m not sure about how he can perform on carpet. Hard to predict the semifinalists on the bottom half of the draw.

Good luck for Boggo, Ricardas and Grigor

BTW, great place to attend a tournament

Janowicz only faced bp's for a single time whole match when he got broken in the first set. He's clearly the better player atm but i looks very much like a 3rd set tiebreak to decide this one.

you think that if grigor and bozo reach the QF and play each other grigor will win? i dont know, im a fan of grigor i dont hide that but he's 0-3 against the guy. Granted last time he did serve awful but its obviously more than the serve, if it wasnt i dont think grigor would be 0-3 against him.

I think of bozo gets to the QF and girogr is his opponent then grigor goes down there

hopefully, if that match happens he proves me wrong

Janowicz could have given up easily when he was down 1-4 in the tiebreaker, but he actually didn't. Thats what i call fighting spirit... just keep the ball in play and wait for your chance, don't give your opponent easy points etc., thats what jerzy did ;)

So I just came back home, after some 7-8 hours of live tennis :)

I made some notes about the matches that I saw, and will write those down now. I probably won't upload any photos before Wednesday or Thursday, I hope you can live with that ;) (yes, I did make some nice ones of both Jerzy and Dustin!)

So, I arrived when the first set between Gero Kretschmer and Andrej Martin was about to end. The second set went on without any break, Kretschmer had a few break chances at the end of the set but didn't use them, so it went into a tie-break. In the tie-break there were two close (but imo correct!) calls against Kretschmer, which made him very angry with the umpire. The second to last point was the best of the whole match, when Martin surprised Kretschmer with a tweener / hot dog / whatever you call it ;). Kretschmer didn't shake hands with the umpire...

Next game was Ricardas (aka. Richard) Berankis vs. Jerzy Janowicz. I was surprised how small Berankis is(1,75 m), but it looked even more extreme when he was standing next to the 2,02 m Janowicz. However, both of them were serving extremely well, inlcuding many aces on both sides. The match lasted over 2 hours, and each player only made one single break: Berankis in the first set, Janowicz in the second set. At the end of the third set, Berankis had match points at 4:5 and 5:6, but Janowicz fought all of them off with strong first serves. In the tie-break Berankis was leading with a mini-break, but eventually lost it 5:7. I talked to him after the game, and obviously he was very sad about the missed chances. He hopes to finish the year well in Bratislava, to be directly qualified for the Australian Open.

In the background on the second court James Cerretani and David Skoch made a safe victory over Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Marko Djokovic. The two youngsters didn't really seem to care about the loss though, I guess they already expected it and just tried to have some fun on the court.

Next game was Victor Crivoi vs. Jesse Huta Galung. I only saw part of the second set of this game, and it looked like Crivoi wasn't really motivated. And the amount of jelly in Huta Galung's hair reminded me of Fernando Verdasco at the Austrlian Open 09. He won the match in two straight sets.

In the background Andre Begemann and Martin Emmrich won the first set over Gero Kretschmer and Simon Stadler, I think there was only one single break. In the second set there was no break at all, so it went into tie-break. Kretschmer and Stadler were leading 6:0, but they actually needed nine!! set points to finally win the tie-break 10:8. The champions tie-break was very close, and Kretschmer and Stadler won it with [11:9]. This time Kretschmer gave the umpire his hand (it was the same umpire!)

On the center court No. 2 seed Steve Darcis played vs. Lukas Rosol, the czech with a tatoo on his calf. It was called the match of the day, and for the neutral viewer, it actually was the best game to watch. Both players were not so strong on their serve, and so one could see very interesting and long rallies - the previous matches had consisted mostly of aces, service winners or very short rallies; there had only been a few long rallies between Berankis and Janowicz. Darcis didn't have his best day, he was cursing a few times (and got a warning for it), and even his Belgian fans that were cheering for him (Aachen is very close to the Belgian border) couldn't help him. And Rosol made only very few errors, so he deserved the 6:3 6:4 win over the favourite.

On the background court, the two local younsters Willi Peter and Leif Berger were getting a lesson by Johan Brunström and Dominic Inglot. Only at the beginning of the second set the could keep the pace, but eventually lost 0:6 2:6.

The last match of the evening was Dustin Brown and Rogier Wassen vs. Berankis and Ilija Bozoljac. There were a few breaks on both sides; Wassen made some incredible points at the net, but his serve is not as strong as that of the younger players (he's 34 already!). Bozoljac was somehow struggling with the headlights - strange that no other player complained about that... Brown and Wassen won the first set 6:4, then at the beginning of the second set Bozoljac became angry. I don't know exactly why, I think he said that Brown's service touched the net but the umpire gave an ace. Bozoljac started debating and demanded the tournament supervisor to appear. I think the debate lasted almost ten minutes, with the result that Bozoljac had to give in :P. Meanwhile, Brown and Wassen were chatting with some other players standing at the side of the court (I saw Denis Gremelmayr and Philipp Marx), and Berankis was sitting in a corner and talking to a ball boy. This was a very nice picture, I hope I could catch it with my crappy camera (my good camera had run out of batteries already... :( ). After the game finally resumed, Brown won his service game, and they broke Berankis' serve in the next game, giving them an early 3:0 lead in the second set. However they coulnd't keep their lead, as Wassen was broken twice, so they lost the second set 5:7. I had to leave then to get my train, so I couldn't watch the champions tie-break (damn Bozoljac and his useless debating!). I just saw that Brown and Wassen won it [10:8], which makes me happy because Bozoljac didn't deserve to win this. However I'm a bit sad for Berankis, as he seems to be a nice boy. I hope he's more lucky in Bratislava, so he can go big next year! And I hope he'll find himself another doubles partner!

So, that's it for today. Tomorrow there will be six singles matches each on both courts; I hope I can also follow the games on the second court a bit. I would have liked to see Gremelmayr on the center court, but I guess Reister, Brown and Dimitrov will make up for this :) (it would be nice if at least *some* of the seeded players could win their first rounds!)

As I said, photos will follow later, I just made too many crappy ones that have to be sorted out first. I'll go to bed now; the first match will start in 11 hours already :) good night! :wavey:


Add-on: Damnit, I was hoping to see Brian Battistone and his crazy serve. He played in Eckental last week, but this week he preferred to lose in first round in Ortisei :mad:

Basically when Brown won firstly Vasek screamed like a baby then started moaning about a bad decision on a set point and how the linesmen never favoured him...and after he finally stopped moaning he went off court

Well, I guess it's not surprising. These last few weeks have been awful for my favorites, I'm so disappointed, Grigor hasn't shown the same intensity these last couple of events. Ram served big but Grigor should have done a better job on his serve. Very disappointing. Oh well, can't say I'm surprised.

Let's go Blaz, save this event from the depths of utter failness.

Dimitrov will be in top 30 next year - possibly after Wimbledon. 2 won challengers and 1 final in big CH125 is very good achievement this year. OK, the first some of them were with some luck, but Orleans showed he is ready for top 100. Ram has good CV - participating in Masters and ATP500. Against Muller last week he scored 22 aces! Again indoor big server. Dancevic, Bozoljac, now Ram and in the future Harrison. McNamara know this and he is working on improvement of his reception.

11-10-2010, 11:44 AM
I was too tired when I came home yesterday, so here's my report for the second day in Aachen:

I had missed a train and arrived, when Blaz Kavcic and Baptiste Dupuy were in the middle of the second set (Kavcic had won the first one 6:1). What I saw looked quite even; there was a break and a re-break, and it looked like it was going into a tie-break when Dupuy was serving at 4:5 40:0. But then Kavcic made five consecutive points, and won the second set 6:4.

In the background the two qualifiers Adrien Bossel and Maxime Authom were playing, but I didn't really see anything of that match.

Next match on centercourt was Dieter Kindlmann vs. Leif Berger, a 17 year old local player who had received a wildcard. The youngster was clearly pushed to his limits, with Kindlmann playing very safe and concentrated, winning the first set 6:0 in like 15 minutes. At the beginning of the second set Kindlmann began making a few errors, and had to defend a breakpoint against him with an ace. At 0:4, Berger won his first game, and he made another one at 1:5, making the final score 0:6 2:6 after less than 45 minutes.

In the background Andre Begemann was playing against Igor Sijsling, last week's Eckental winner. I didn't see much of the first set, I think there was not a single break, and it went into a tie-break. Begemann did a nice "tweener" passing shot, nevertheless he lost the tie-break 2:7. In his first service game of the second set he started playing 100% serve & volley (hadn't noticed him doing that before), but it was kinda suicidal, as he lost the game to love. The result was a destroyed racket. After that he calmed down again and played better, but couldn't manage to re-break Sijsling, so he lost the second set 3:6.

On the center court there was another match with a local youngster named Willi Peter, against Simon Stadler. And it was very similar to the match before: Peter was fighting very well, there were a few nice rallies, but in the end it was always Stadler who made the point. The first set went 0:6, at the beginning of the second set Peter could hold his serve twice to make it 2:2, but then he went down 2:6. The annoying part of this was, that the match ended at 3:50 pm, but according to the time-table the next match on center court should not start before 5:00 pm.

So we had to watch the match in the background between Ilija Bozoljac and Franco Skugor, which was not moved to the center court (they probably feared it could last longer than 5 pm). It was a very even match, with both players serving well (Skugor's serve movement looked very nice). At 4:5 in the first set Bozoljac had three break and set points, but couldn't use them. In the first set tie-break, Skugor was leading 4:0 already, but Bozoljac made two mini-re-breaks to make it 5:5 even. Until 11:10 there were no more mini-breaks, with both players fighting off the set points with good serves. Then Bozoljac finally made the important point and won the first set 12:10 in tie-break. Remarkable about Bozoljac were the sounds that he made; it was not really a moaning like most of the females and some male players do, it sounded more like heavy breathing, as if every hit he made produced so much wind. Like in his doubles match yesterday, he was complaining and debating with the umpire a lot. Like the first set, the second set went into a tie-break without any break on both sides, and this time Bozoljac won the tie-break easily with 7:3 and thereby also the match.

Finally there was a match on center court again: German Julian Reister (who I had talked to yesterday, very nice guy) vs. Wildcard Marko Djokovic, Nole's brother. Finally we could see very nice rallies, it was a very even match. At 3:3, Reister was facing three break points at 0:40, but made five consecutive points to win the game. At 5:6 Djokovic was facing the first break point for Reister. He failed to produce a first serve, and made a very weak second serve, which Reister directly converted into a point, winning the first set 7:5. Early in the second set Reister made another break, but was directly rebroken by Djokovic. At 3:3 there was a funny moment, when Reister was discussing with the female umpire about a serve that was called out. When he returned to the line to make a second serve, Djokovic received a warning for time-play, as he had used the discussion to sit down next to the ball boys. At 5:4* Reister had his first match point, but couldn't use it, so the set went into a tie-break. Reister was leading 3:1, but eventually Djokovic won the tie-break 7:5. In the third set Reister made another early break at 2:1, and this time Djokovic did not fight back but was broken again at 4:1, which was the moment when he kinda gave up the game. He made another game, but finally after 2 hours of playing (35 minutes after his first match point) Reister won the set 6:2. I don't know if Marko will become as big as his brother (who had won one of his first titles here 4 years ago!); he does have some very good shots, but I think he still needs to work on the mental aspects.

In the background Ruben Bemelmans was playing against Alex Bogdanovic. The two lefties had played the semifinal in Eckental last week, which Bemelmans had won in two close sets. It looked like he would win it again, as he broke early in the first set and fought off a few break chances for Bogdanovic afterwards, to win the set 6:3. Like yesterday, there were many Belgian fans who were cheering for him, sometimes in the middle of a rally between Reister and Djokovic, quite annoying. In the second set it went the other way round: Bogdanovic broke at 4:3, and finished the set 6:3. The third set went down without a single break for each player, so there had to be a deciding tie-break. It looked like Bogdanovic gave it up after the first mini-break, giving Bemelmans a 6:0 lead when they exchanged sides. Bemelmans converted his second match point to win the tie-break 7:1. He'll play against Jerzy Janowicz now, who also won his first round match in a third set tie-break; I think it'll be a close match again.

Next match on center court was Vasek Pospisil versus Dustin Brown, last year's finalist who's now starting for Germany. I must say this was not a nice match to watch. In the first set there was not a single break, but not because the players were serving so well; both were returning very badly. Brown played 100% serve & volley, and Pospisil just didn't manage to adapt to it and always returned the ball into the middle, where it was easy for Brown to finish the point. And Brown could hardly manage to get a return back into the field. Somehow he managed to get a few break points, but all were fought off with good serves by Pospisil. In the tie-break, there were many mini-breaks on both sides. Pospisil was serving at 6:5, but lost both points on his serve (including a very close call against him), so Brown took the set with 8:6. In the second set Pospisil managed to get the first break of the game at 4:3, followed by an immediate re-break by Brown to 4:4. At 6:5* Pospisil had break points again, and he used them to win the set 7:5. The third set went on without any break until Pospisil was serving at 4:5. Brown made two return winners, which were both close calls, giving him a 0:30 lead. Pospisil was angry about the calls, losing his concentration, and then lost the game and the match. I could hear the word "bullshit" a few times; don't know if he received a warning about that.

In the background the Germans Denis Gremelmayr and Bastian Knittel were playing; again two lefthanders. An early break lead to a 3:0 lead for Knittel; Gremelmayr was having some problems with his rackets, which he was exchanging frequently. At 1:4 Gremelmayr managed to fight off three break points, and then at 3:5 he had the first break point himself, which he won due to a double fault by Knittel. In the following game Knittel had a break and set point, leaading to a destroyed racket by Gremelmayr. With his new racket he fought off the set point, won the game and also the following two games to win the set 7:5. He continued his streak to get an early 2:0 lead in the second set. From then on there were no more breaks, with Gremelmayr being the better of two bad players... So Gremelmayr won the second set 6:4. Knittel was shouting something like "good that it's my last year" - seems like he wants to end his carreer?

The next game on the background court were Andrey Kumantsov against Pierre-Hugues Herbert aka. "leather jacket" vs. "beanie" (that's the clothing accecoirs that they had been wearing for the past two days, Kumantsov even went on the court with his leather jacket...). From what I could see, it was a nice match with good rallies, much better than what Brown and Pospisil showed on the center court! Herbert was the better player, having break points on several occasions, which he used at 6:5* in the first set and 5:4* in the second set, winning the match 7:5 6:4. I think Gremelmayr could get some problems against him, and also Brown if they meet in the quarter final.

The last game of the evening was Grigor Dimitrov against Rajeev Ram, the title defender. It was already past 9:30 pm when they entered the court - this made it even more annoying that the center court had been empty for more than an hour during the afternoon. Many spectators left after the Brown match was finished, but they missed the best match of the evening! Both players were serving very strong, but nevertheless there were quite a few very nice rallies. Dimitrov has a beautiful backhand, which he used on several occasions to produce winner shots. And yes, the serve did remind me of Federer. At 3:2* in the first set he gained his first break chances, which he converted with a net cord. He served it out to win the first set 6:3. In the second set Dimitrov had an early break point which he could not use. Later at 5:5 Ram made two double faults, leading to another two breakpoints for Dimitrov, which he used to get at *6:5 lead. I thought the match was over now, but however Dimitrov also double faulted to give Ram the re-break and a tie-break. It was close until 5:5, when a very weak forehand by Dimitrov gave Ram the first set point, which he directly used to win the tie-break 7:5. In the third set both players were serving extremely well, only allowing very few return points. At one occasion there was a 30:30 on Ram's serve, but he made the following two points. So, for the second time today we had a deciding third set tie-break. Dimitrov got an early mini-break, but squandered it with a double fault. At 4:4 there was a very nice rally, which Ram ended with a perfect stop volley, giving him a mini-break. He then served it out to win the tie-brak 7:4. I can't say that Dimitrov played badly; both players played on a very high level, and probably it were those two double faults in the very wrong moments that cost him the win. However I'm sure that he will become a big name within the next 2-3 years.

So, when the last game was finally over I had to hurry to get my last train home (it was 11:30 pm already!). I had seen more than 10 hours of tennis; some very boring matches (Kindlmann and Stadler vs. youngsters), some very bad matches (Brown vs. Pospisil, Gremelmayr vs. Knittel), but also some very good matches (Reister vs. Djokovic, Ram vs. Dimitrov). I hope that Reister can go deep here, as he's a nice guy and I would like to see him qualified for the Australian Open.

That's it for now; I'll look through my hundreds of photos later on and will try to make a good selection. Should I post them directly in this thread, or better somewhere else and place a link here?
