I went today to see bits of Mertinak - Kovalik and Dancevic - Sergeyev match. Mertinak looked the far better player, I hope Kovalik isn't the future of slovak tennis he has a lot of things to work on. Dancevic looked very solid but Sergeyev, despite his heigth (or shorth? ) had a great serve, had not a problem of serving 2-3 aces per game.

Good stuff by the local Slovak players so far. Lacko, Gombos(WC) (nice win vs Kunitsyn!), Mertinak(Q) and Capkovic(WC) already in the 2nd round! And Mecir jr. was also very solid and came very close vs tough opponent (Ignatik). Youngster Kovalik played nothing special, I expected more from him (he improved his serve a bit, that´s the only positive). Horansky got an unplayable opponent in Hajek. 2 more local boys with the chance to squeeze into R2, Klec is in against Stakhovsky and Andrej Martin vs. O.Rochus, but of course both as the very clear underdogs there.

I have to say, that the quality of tennis in Bratislava is very good so far. Courts are extremely fast and players are focused for the strong finish of the season. Lacko, Dodig, Hajek and surprisingly Sergeyev(who served out of his mind, I was shocked..) showed probably the best tennis so far, but tournament is wide open, so many good players in it.

I guess, Gulbis´s decision was too late and all potential LLers were already out of Bratislava... Klec was at the place, so he is playing. Everybody out of that group of LLers would very probably lose against Stakh, so it´s not a big deal. But at least young talented Thiem (he´s from Austria, which is very close to Bratislava) would be definitely a more interesting choice and he would deserve it more, but we can only guess what´s up in this case.. As for Klec, he´s struggling and is without potential. That´s a definiton of walking bye for Stakh.

stakh is more concerned discussing IW prize money on twitter than getting ready for this match, so he probably doesn't expect anything difficult

Very nice rallies in O.Rochus-A.Martin (6-4, 3-6, 2*-2). Very similar styles by both players, Andrej Martin was the better player so far, but Rochus managed to hold a lot of service games when facing BPs.

YES! Andrej Martin with a well deserved break to 5*-4. He´s a clearly better player in this one, playing probably one of the best matches of his life. Please, don´t choke it now.. EDIT: And of course, he choked it :-( he was so nervous there. Olli has that experience which is clearly paying off now.

Olli got more offensive at the end of the match and Andrej made some errors. He gets tight so often but the talent is there. Olli stepped his game up at just the right time.

O.Rochus d. A.Martin 6-4, 3-6, 7-6(5) What a shame, sometimes also a better player can lose a match... Andrej was playing out of his mind, but Olli really upped his level at the end. Every point was soo tough. Andrej had so many chances in this match, was serving for the match, had numbers of other BPs, also in the 1st set. Probably the best and most watchable match of the tournament, so congrats to Olli. He wasn´t better, but still very good.

Some stats: Total points won: 108-104 in favour of Martin. Olli also had to fight more for his serves (117 serves comparing to 95 by Andrej, which shows he had much more problems by his serves during the match). Break point convertion: Martin 3/13, Olli 3/5

Hajek vs. Rochus gonna be a good one

Jan should beat Olli comfortably, IMO.
