ivan's never like the grass, but i think he can do really well this year. he's gonna be one of the top seeds every week and his serve should be big enough to carry him far

It would have been good if it didnt rain today, so ivan could play a real pace match, even if it was dubs, but i think he will be fine tomorrow, I am expecting 6-3 6-3 :)

He didn't serve well against Gael.Once he hasn't had a good serve,he has a problem!And some people thinks he was tired.
Next week he won't play,I think it's good because this year he focus more on big matches! :yeah: He better win more points than his competitor on Wimby to defend his ranking! :)
