But then Malisse started missing more and more. JC was constantly hitting deep and mixing up well. And his drop shots were superb, both the timing and execution. Maybe be needs to defend his FH side a bit better.
Murray has withdrawn with the elbow injury so JC will play a LL in R2. Don't know who that will be yet.
thanks for the detailed summary Bunny.
What an effing break for him that Murray is out!!!!!! It should be an interesting match against Zverev. Hope he can pull it out. Thrilled that he's taking the net "like a madman".
Pico lost so JC's next opponent is Simone Vagnozzi.
He's 27 and is ranked #186 this week. Should be a cruise for Juanqui but the guy must be playing well to beat Pico and reach R3 (although his R1 vs Fognini ended in retirement.)
Good luck, JC!!
