Re: Kitzbühel R2: J. Melzer (Nr. 421) def. [1] Thiem 6:3 7:5

So much for tanking in order to get to Toronto sooner.

Thiem and Novak have made the doubles final, with first set scores of 1-6, 2-6 and 1-6.

Re: Kitzbühel R2: J. Melzer (Nr. 421) def. [1] Thiem 6:3 7:5

He has finally got round to commenting on the match on facebook

3/6 5/7 against Jürgen Melzer. A tough loss for me yesterday I still don’t know what to say about it. I guess I was still not fit....

Re: Kitzbühel R2: J. Melzer (Nr. 421) def. [1] Thiem 6:3 7:5

Linked to that is he doesn't really have a "comfortable 95% mode". If he isn't fully focused his level can drop off alarmingly. It is easy to imagine how with all the hype around him this week (they...

Re: Kitzbühel R2: J. Melzer (Nr. 421) def. [1] Thiem 6:3 7:5

I don't think it was a tank but it is understandable if this week wasn't exactly a top priority for him. Winning this tournament really wouldn't have added anything to his season where as good runs...

Re: Washington R2: Evans def Dimitrov 6-4 6-4

Over the last year or so Evans has baulked up and thus added extra power to his game which has helped him compete at this level. In spite of this extra muscle he is still quick around the court.

Re: WWW ATP Toronto Masters 1000 (withdrawals, draw discussions, etc)

So currently we have official withdrawals from Murray, Federer, Nadal, Ferrer, Gasquet, Simon and Seppi.

Absolutely terrible for this to happen to a good event like Toronto.

Washington R1: Sugita def Pospisil 1-6 6-2 7-6(4)

Great result for tennis.

Unless Pospisil wins at least 2 matches at Toronto he will drop out of the top 100 over the next couple of weeks.
