Hmm, the early schedule again today is very annoying, since Eurosport doesn't start broadcasting yet. So bwin it is!

David held at love, and now has a bp to take the early lead. He had three chances to break in this service game already, but has yet to convert.

He is losing too many points on his 2nd serve.

Again a silly approach shot (he did quite few yesterday). And in Stockholm he had wonderful approach shots.

Finally a good challenge, it could have been his last one.

Default Re: David enters the land of Lindt. Can he tune his game to Swiss precision in Basel?

David played a couple of very good points from 0-2 down in the TB to take control - off backhand return winner and forehand down-the-line winner.

I thought he played an average first set. Second serve was getting punished and Becker was winning quite a few cheap points on serve. His groundstrokes were looking solid though and they were engaging in more long rallies than I would have thought.

Can't believe this, 0:40 and 3 aces from Becker plus 2 service winners and another opportunity flies away.

How annoying. David just played three of his best points to get up 0-40, then Becker served 3 unreturnables, and David dumped a return into the net the next point to not break serve.

Huh that was was a hard BH smash for saving a second BP, and lousy FH for setting a 3rd BP.
