Re: Igor's 2012
Igor defeated Garcia-Lopez in QF, and unfortunately got defeated 3-6 6-7 by Ramos today.
He really had the chance to even up the match (been leading already 5-2 in the second), but just couldn't keep it up. He wasn't as calm and focused as in the previous rounds, and didn't seem to cope well with windy conditions. Made quite a lot of UEs (don't remember the exact number), and let Ramos take the initiative on too many occasions. Besides, he really wasn't lucky when it came to close calls/nets etc. Lahyani didn't spoil him with decisions in his favor either. The tie break was quite dramatic too. Igor didn't take any of the 4 tie break set points he had, and eventually, lost the match in straights.
Igor's getting better and better with every tourney he plays, so if nothing bothers him physically he should move up in ranks soon (I hope). Thumbs up for getting to a SF.
