Re: Vasek Pospisil

@ibreak4coffee I made a thread in GM about it.

I don't think he's too proud, I mean playing qualys really is the same as playing a CH, same level, so why not play qualys instead when you were recently on the tour, he doesn't want nor should he to go back to CH's, he should have beaten Berrer, he likely won't be playing any more qualys in Asia now.

Lost to Berrer in the final round of Chengdu qualifying. Why he's too proud or whatever else to play some Challengers is puzzling - he's not even guaranteed to make the qualy cut for some of the Asian tournaments

Sometimes I think he's too fired up for his own good. In Davis Cup on Friday, he was hitting double faults against a guy (Jarry) who has no return of serve. There was no need for it. At any rate, thanks for leading the team in this all important tie.

He'll next try to qualify for Chengdu after DC.

Wouldn't you say that Vasek just put in his best performance this year?

If you say only at times did Kandy look good then I'd take that as a positive for Vasek, as Kandy's had some bad losses lately.
Of all the matches I've watched this year, this was the best tennis Pospisil played. He looked confident.

I watched a set and a half of Anderson - he had some trouble closing Nishioka out, and made a lot of UE's considering that Nishioka doesnt have a game to really trouble him. Vasek obviously presents a different problem for Anderson as he can match the big serve and gets way more power on his groundstrokes than Nishioka did. I still think Kandy takes the match but I'll be there from the start in the hopes Vasek pulls out another great performance. If he can attack well and serve consistently, he should have some chances.

Anderson next, hard to say what his chances are.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Good stuff from Vasek today. Served very well and attacked smartly. Kovalik was pretty bad overall but any moment he looked like he might find form, Vasek came up with a big service game or some nice points. Vasek was pumped up the entire match and even in the 3rd set was talking to himself if you didn't see the score you'd think he was losing. Good contingent of Canadians there to cheer him on, a few "Anything is Pospisil" t-shirts

Re: Vasek Pospisil

Much easier than I thought it would be, I was thinking perhaps a 5 setter.

Tuggy Great start for Vasek. He was quite emotional in his post match interview.

I wonder if the courts may favor Kovalik though, as you said they are slower and maybe higher bouncing.

Its always an adventure with Vasek in New York.
