Bittersweet result. I'm happy that JMDP is moving on but it's at the cost of Guga.

Guga served for the first set, then everything fell down:sad: He got broken twice at the start of the second set, then it went on serve until the end...

The problems with Guga are his focus when serving for sets, his first serve % (way too low) and his return (couldn't do a thing on JMPD's serve...) still, good fight!

Guga :hug:

Can't say it was unexpected but well done JMDP :yeah:

It will be interesting to see how he matches up with Gasquet.

yes, I would normally be on Guga´s side.

Did anyone have the chance to watch the match? I mean, are these first round matches broadcasted somewhere? :lol:

Congrats JM :woohoo: Looked like a close first set - Guga had a break, and served for it, but seems like he got tired after such a long first set, and JM took the second easily.

Next round is against Gasquet.
It can be interesting. I don´t expect him to win, but I won´t complain if Juan surprises me. ;)

Not everyone is as good as Agassi who could play way beyond age 30.

I am so happy for Juanma. This is a good start for him. He is the youngest on the tour and a late developer physically, so it is hard on him. I am sure he will do his best against Gasquet. But I feel that, no matter what happens, he will be there soon enough.
:D

yes, he is still not in match shape he has blown to many chances to close out sets or has choked when he can get broken for the set, his serve % also seems low, his best servie game was against volandri where he served 70%+ first serves...

That's exactly what I think:)

In Guga's case he can't play because of his hip. Unfortunately, we don't know how he would be playing if he was completely healthy, but Agassi was a tennis genius.

Agassi played with a bad back which caused him a lot of pain too.

Don't be stubborn! you know that what Guga's has is much worse. He is much younger than Agassi and has been suffering from his back for a few years.
Agassi was never forced to stop playing for almost a year.

Did I say something wrong? Agassi's case was very bad, without constant injections he was unable to play at all and still he suffered a lot of pain when playing.

bad luck guga, not the easiest of draws,. but soon he can get back to clay

guga lost to a very promising up & coming player

sure there might be several, but he looks a sure bet than most
guga is optimistic & content, he has just got back after nearly 2 year injury so he has some limited expectation
he needs to get match fit, endurance & just the battle of playing on tor again
I would love to see him win a tournament this season
its a shame what has happened to him with all the hip injuries

...and he was a great fighter as well. Many would give up matches he turned around
