Is Vasek still without a coach? Maybe Roger can play just fine without a coach, but most players can't. And Vasek definitely can't.

About as good a draw as he could have hoped for - time to execute for the number #3 Canadian

You're right. I hate that you're right, but you're right.

Tuggy Has a pretty good draw for the Cincy qualifying. But it's Vasek, so who knows.

Vasek has had a solid year, moved his ranking up solidly into top 100 and positioned himself well to start making a move into the top 50 again.

Peter on the other hand played a great match. After some early loose errors, he started putting everything back, and his first returns were fantastic, he took them early and put a ton of them into Vasek's feet, changing momentum on points from the first ball. Peter earned the win.
Look at some historical draws, especially at the US Open - its happened every time. Last night Vasek went up 5-2 and barely took one risk the rest of the match - just pushing the ball back with Peter waiting for an error. Its not his game, and the match turned dramatically as soon as he tightened up.

You seem to be new to the boards here, so you may not realize I'm usually the first to defend Vasek. But Murray aside, this has been a frequent occurrence in his career.

And literally every time in his career where he lands right beside one, he chokes in the first round. Like every time.

Yes, heartbreak is part & parcel of being a Vasek fan. Are players like Mischa Zverev (currently ranked #26), Feli Lopez (#28), or Steve Johnson (#34) that much more talented than Vasek? No, at least not in my opinion. Yet they're all solid top 30-40 players, and I don't see why Vasek can't pull it together to join their ranks. I just hope that Vasek finds himself a really great coach, one he really clicks with and who can help get him to that next level. I was bit alarmed when I saw a blank under "Coach" on his ATP page .

There are very few players I want to see win more than Vasek, so I probably take his losses too hard. But some of those weak backhands in the 3rd set v Laaksonen frustrated the hell out of me...

Re: Vasek Pospisil

i dont think he's doing too bad in general, sure losing to laaksonen wasn't a good sign and he's due to have a deep run on main tour for quite a while

but for after winning Busan in may, he's lost to
#1 seed Cilic in den bosch QF
third set TB to home favourite Dustin Brown in Halle
#1 seed Djokovic in Eastbourne R2
#8 seed Thiem in SW19 R1
#2 seed Isner in Atlanta R2

his big points to defend comes in October in Shanghai, which there's still time for Vasek to gain more points before the 115 drops out
he's #72 now which is already a lot better than same week last year where he's free-falling and about to leave top 100..

obviously people drags him after losing to Laaksonen saying Vasek is "massivaly declining", "cant play well beyond CH" et cetera on GM, but that's just how MTF works
