Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Saville has quietly made it to the semi-finals of the Toyota Challenger - good result for him, having defeated Duckhee Lee along the way, and unsurprisingly it's a tournament played on fast carpet courts. Even more than Groth, it seems Sav is Australia's very own "Where's the grass?" player!

You have to hand it to Luke though - he clearly loves the game of tennis (unlike someone we could name) and in spite of all the criticism, he seems determined to persist and build a career that at least partly reflects his talent as a junior. It's just a mystery as to why his game seems so limited to grass, carpet and fast hardcourts...I really think he could at least reach the lower reaches of the top 100, but something always seems to get in the way for him.

Yes Yes Yes
Luke wins and qualifies for Wimbledon.

He beat Matthias Bachinger in five sets, coming from 2 set to one down, to recover and win 64 36 26 76(1) 64.
Must have been a nervous tie-breaker for him.

Well done Luke.
He faces another qualifier in USA's Moscow Born 22 year old Dennis Novikov (ATP146).
An excellent opportunity for Luke to showcase his grass court skills and win in the main draw.

Go Luke

A clutch win for Luke, coming from a set down.
It was pretty nerve-wracking following the live-score in that tie-break, especially with Broady 5-3 up, then serving for the match at 5-4 up in the tie-break. Luke hung tough, good mentally.
A good ending at last for Luke in a close match.

Good win in straights over Desein.

Luke back in the top 200! Hopefully he can win a few more matches and get closer to the 150 mark

Re: Luke Saville Cheering Thread

Luke just does not seem to rise to the challenge at some of these events.
Having said that, Nishioka has a good record but expect Luke to fire every time, especially with his big game.

Routined by Yoshihito Nishioka, 3-6 2-6
