And Sam goes down to Sektic. As Chris said he needs to won these type of matches.
Sam's serve percentage was good 1st set, which he won, and then pooh in the 2nd set, which let Sektic in, with just one break in the set, to win the 2nd set.
Sektic served at an exceptional 80% for set 2 & 3 and Sam was done.
Well done Sam.
Not sure how he got to play a qualifier (Skugor) instead of the No.2 seed Ram. If Ram pulled out Sam should have played a licky loser??
Sometimes you get lucky...
Now plays another qulaifier but this time it is defending champion Zivkovic, who had to qualify!
Strange he did not get a WC...
Sam and JP Smith are into another doubles final after a 4-6 7-5 10-7 in the semis of An-Ning over Bolt and Statham. I saw the first set and a bit before the feed acted up. Sam's serve would obviously be a weapon in any format, but aside from power he hits the right spins/slices and angles with it to set up easy volleys for his partner. Heading for the top 100 in the doubles rankings now.
