Berankis had two break points at 4 all in the third set to serve for the match, failed to break and got broken at 15 to lose. Zemlja saved 9/10 BPs and Berankis won a higher percentage of service points. Disappointing for Rycka, this was a very winnable match.

I believe Zemlja has still not made it past round 2 this year.

Berankis has been losing "Winnable matches" since late 2010 so many times.

Weren't some people on here saying Berankis could do some damage at this challenger? I never really saw it myself. I don't mind Berankis but he always seems to be injured or recovering from the latest injury.

I expected something from him aswell,it's his best surface, but he dissapointed. His career is a sort of a treadmill, he didn't have a single season, i'd say even a half of a season without an injury, that prevents him from gaining some form for a longer period of time. It's frustrating that he's not likely to break through and make it to the Tour because of the injury plague, but I hope he proves me wrong eventually.
