Brad1973 Pretty good numbers from Vasek against Djokovic. One ace per game, only two lost service games in the match and he won a third of return of serve points.

Re: Vasek Pospisil

I only caught the second set, but I thought Vasek actually held his ground pretty well in the back court rallies. He got into trouble when he approached on balls that weren't quite short or weak enough to come in behind. Despite all of Novak's woes over the last 12 months, he still has a helluva passing shot. It's nice to see that Vasek hung on 'til the very end. He hit a couple of great forehands in the last game, one a brilliant pass at full stretch. Oh well, beating even a struggling Novak was going to be tough. On to Wimbledon! May the Gods of the Kind Draw smile on Vasek this Friday.

Vasek lost in straight sets and didn't really trouble Nole too much.

Onto Wimbledon. Hopefully he gets a friendly draw!

I agree, Vasek has had a pretty respectable grass season to date. Despite all of Novak's woes, to borrow from another MTFer, Novak's 50% is better than most players' 100%. I just hope that Vasek walks on court believing that he can win because he is absolutely capable of pulling off the upset. As long as Vasek plays with belief and is able to harness that belief into top-quality tennis, then win or lose, it'll be a great match for Vasek. It's gotta be a huge privilege for the lower-ranked players every time they get a chance to play one of the all time greats of the sport. Hopefully Vasek sees it that way, not "what sh*tty luck, drawing Novak in the 2nd Round!"

For Vasek's first match, he gets ... drumroll please ... top seed and three-time Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic!! Sure, it's a tough draw, but it could turn out to be a golden opportunity. Novak ain't the player he used to be, and this will be his first match this year on grass. If Dennis Istomin could beat Novak on hard court, no doubt that Vasek is capable of beating Novak on grass.
Second match - he beat Vesely.

It would amazing that Vasek beats Murray and Djokovic in the same year... but I suspect that's not going to happen tomorrow.

Of course it would be the most Vasek thing ever to beat those two and somehow finish the season ranked 96

Re: Vasek Pospisil

And he won his first round match today!

He is playing against Djokovic tomorrow. He plays well on grass and he has beaten Murray earlier this season, so who knows?

Tuggy Won his first qualifying match today pretty easily. Faces the winner of Dodig/Diez tomorrow who have to play twice. So Vasek in good shape to qualify. He's also the #1 seed in qualifying.

Lost in a third-set tiebreak to Brown, not before saving five match points in the second and pulling off this beauty.
