FBD Irish Open

Day 5 Report: Semi Finals

Josh Goodall def. James McGee 6-4 6-4

High quality match between the two but Goodall just completely dominated McGee from beginning to end. His serve was on fire, hitting aces in most of his service games. 1st serve percentage was the winning factor for josh in my opinion because when he got it in, James had no chance. McGee showed bottle however and came from 5-2 down to 5-4 but Goodall hung on to close out the 1st set. 2nd set was much closer but James was struggling to serve easy games where as Goodall barely had any trouble. At 3-3 McGee did well to fight of 5 break-points and go 4-3 up but Goodall got the crucial break at 4-4 and served it out with no bother holding to love.
Noticed again today that Goodall seems be a bit cocky and likes to moan every so often when he doesn’t like something. Bit of a drama queen imo.

Michael Look def. Albano Olivetti 6-3 6-4

Thought Olivetti would come through this unscaved with his big serve and game but Look surprised me. Michael hits the ball well for a small guy and conjured up some spectacular winners from the baseline passing Olivetti at the net multiple times. Albano played well at times but was rare compared to a consistent level headed Look who frustrated his opponent with his flat forehands in particular. Mid-way through the match Olivetti got very upset with a line call and muttered continuously. He never really recovered from that and Look broke him at 5-4 to take the match.

Thanks, saw a few games but from what I saw Olivetti was just too powerful with his giant serve. Morrissey played decent at times but was overwhelmed by his opponents heavy hitting

Final will also be streamed live on Tennis Ireland website according to the tournament programme

Day 3 Report:

James McGee def. Barry King 6-2 6-3

Good match over all with high quality tennis from James in particular who was just too consistent in the long rallies which is understandable considering Barry retired last year. McGee hit a few aces and when he got his first serves in, most of the time he won the point. King struggled to hold on to his serve comfortably as the match wore on even though he did manage to break James early in the 2nd set. Even though James didn’t play near his best he came through it comfortably but credit to Barry for putting up a good fight which contributed to a good contest between the two.

Michael Look def. Sam Barry 6-1 6-2

Sam showed glimpses of his much talked about talent but conjured up way too many unforced errors most of which he dumped into the net. Look played a good solid match with quick service games and heavy hitting which piled the pressure on Sam to hold his serve. Look dominated the match and deserved the win.

Daniel Cox def. Neil Pauffley 7-6(4) 3-6 6-3

Was quite impressed by Pauffley as I had never seen him play before. He went through phases where he was all over Cox hitting winners from everywhere but at the crucial times couldn’t keep up that level of play. Cox has a good compact game but doesn’t have a massive shot or strength. Was just too consistent for his opponent taking his break-points for the most part at the first time of asking.

Josh Goodall def. David Pel 7-6(2) 6-3

Goodall has quite the temper on him. Many times throughout the match he was moaning and complaining to the umpire and got a code violation warning early in the 2nd set which didn’t improve his mood at all. Pel was pretty much all serve with a decent forehand but not much else. Goodall's game overall just too good for the Dutchman
