Just got back from the Rogers Cup.

I found Duclos much more confident in his manner than I remember him two years ago. He was getting a lot of support from the crowd, which he seemed to appreciate (last time I felt he didn't really connect at all). He came out very aggressive and looked the stronger player at the beginning of the first set. I was worried about him holding serve when he was 4-5 down, and while he did end up being broken, I give him credit for hanging in there and saving many set points with some terrific play. It is nice to see someone doing a lot of serve and volley, although when Ebden got into a groove of passing him, I thought it might have been time to change something.

I didn't get to see much of Diez as they had kindly programmed the two Canadians to play at the same time, and as you saw, if you blinked, you missed Diez's match. I just saw the last few games, three of which he actually won. He looked quite deflated and was probably hoping that the thing would be over soon. That might have relaxed him and helped him do a bit better - though he didn't look relaxed in serving.

Duclos was upset at not receiving Bester's WC it seems, he said after his match today:

"I had no information. I would have appreciated that Eugene Lapierre would have sent me a text or something" because he learnt from other players that Gulbis was the one who got the WC.

He said that it was a big mistake and that it was bad for Canadian tennis not to have given a MD WC to Frank.

And he added "Gulbis and Tomic are good players, yes, but we should help our Canadian players. But it's okay if they (Tennis Canada) don't want me."

I don't know that Lapierre's comments were directed so much at Duclos' case. My guess is that the unspoken part there is that Duclos wasn't going to get one because he pissed them off last year when they did give him a MD WC by spending the week before in China.

I'm not judging who was right there. But yeah, they could have informed him what was going on beforehand.
