I mean, it's good for Vasek of course, but it's sad to see what kind of state Peter is in. The slump is really bad, and it just doesn't seem to change.. unfortunately
This is not a fair comparison. Vasek played a clay courter with no grass skills - Peter played an up and coming player who should figure out how to play on all surfaces and is a top 100 player. Vasek wouldn't have beaten Schoorel by all accounts and lost in straights to a more experienced player whereas Peter had the match on his racket. Even had Peter won though, would have been in tough against Guccione. I think its logical neither made it, but the difficulty of their first round opponents was far different.
