It's just you. He's servebotting his way through this match, both he and Brands are almost all serve today

His groundstrokes lack power big time, still rusty. He might very well live up to his MM king reputation and take this here. If he does, he will win the tournament.

If Haas plays like he did in Shanghai, I don't think Delpo can take him down just serveboting....

Delpo completely owns Haas and Tipsarevic (possible finalists). H2H vs the two of them: 6-0 combined, 13-0 in sets, best each of them managed was one 5-7 set, combined they broke JMDP's serve twice in 13 sets.

3 more aces for Brands This will be tough if the guy's serve doesn't cool down a bit.

But where were the aces in the tb? He'll choke....

Erm, that doesn't matter, that was regular Delpo, not his serveboting version (though I think it's good for him to servebot a little, he needs his serve to improve).

Maybe, but it'll be tough for Delpo for sure. He had a decent chance to break here, missed again tho.

This is his first match after a long layoff, he's rusty and probably a bit fearful of going for his shots, if he wins here (big if atm) I expect him to keep improving as the week goes on.

Agree that it's good he's improving his serve, he needs to continue if he is to win big tournaments again, the serve is key.

Semjan is actually ranked #483 right now, that was a CH too, he probably wasn't very motivated that day.
