Great result for Jan! He's good on grass, but I'm surprised he won this close match as he's a choker and Stak is a good finisher. Very impressed. He did a great job saving break points throughout the match.

there are no words to describe how awful this is

No question, very great win for Henrych but I never thought that Stakhovsky loses to him on grass. :facepalm:

Hernych saved 19/20 bps, must have been very clutch in the match and deserved it.

The only thing that I can say makes this a poor loss is the fact Stakhovsky had 20 break points and took one, which is a ridiculous number. With that said, this is grass, so points are quicker and serve is more of an factor.

Hernych has wins like this every year. I wouldn't be surprised to see him continue winning.

OMFG :haha:

Why so surprised? Hernych has a very good grass peigree, a couple of ATP finals, his favourite surface IMO, he is a giant in Rosmalen, as if Stakhovsky was high class player, surely one of the luckiest player ever, just unbelivabl he won 4 ATP titles with so little game, way overrated if you ask me....

Stakhovsky deserved his 4 titles. He's just not consistent, does sod all outside those.

Hilarious loss. Nice one, Stakhovsky, you moron.
