Re: Igor's 2012
Igor is into the QF of Casablanca! He defeated Montanes 6-3 6-4 in R1 and Istomin 6-7(3) 6-3 6-2 in R2 Wednesday. Against Istomin, he fell behind 0-3 in the first set and really didn't play well the first half of the match, but he started cutting down on his errors, moved well and served great on big points against him. He's a lot more confident now and it shows in how he plays under pressure. Goes to show just how important it is to have a winning feeling as a player in tennis.
Igor now plays Garcia-Lopez in the QF. Igor has a 2-0 H2H, both matches being in three sets. They haven't played since 2008, but Igor can take confidence in his previous wins over GGL and hopefully he continues to ride his wave of momentum and makes the SF!
