Oh good for him today, thought he had it. I think he may lose to Udomchoke although it could be a good matchup for Peter.

Unfortunately he lost the final, 7-5, 7-6. The past few weeks he seems to be losing all sets that get to 5-5.

I hope anyway he will take some confidence into US Open qualies.

I think he got a fairly good draw for the US Open, especially for a non-seed with T. Alves first, then probably Bagnis and either Authom/Zeballos in the final round, couldn't ask for a better opportunity.

A nice looking R2, if he can get past Alves. Looks like he's 0-3 against Zeballos, though all were on clay, and it was tight at the French this year. Just worried about his ability to push through in close matches, hopefully he can get it going.

I dont think Peter could have asked for a better draw. In any event, I hope to make it over in time tomorrow to catch his match. Alves is crafty but no weapons so as long as Peter plays well he should take this.

Polansky killing it so far - backhand looks especially good

This is what is so frustrating about Polansky, and I am sure it drives him crazy. It was 4-1 40-15* Polansky and five minutes later it is 4-4

Solid finish to the set after three horrendous games at 4-1 up

In the 4-1 game Alves didn't get one first serve in and Peter shanked every return. I don't remember Alves hitting one winner from the baseline all set

Good to get a win, Bagnis then Bhambri/Authom, a very nice opportunity if he can keep it together and play well.

Polansky clears his first of third hurdles, beating Alves four and three. On a hardcourt he should have Bagnis, his next opponent.

Peter was solid but don't read too much into the result - Alves is a pusher and on this day a terrible one on top of that

Default Re: Peter Polansky

Besides the three games at 4-1 in the first, Peter completely dictated this match. Lots of beautiful winners. What impressed me most was the hold at 3-3 in the second set. Alves had 0-40, and Peter saved all three break points with aces. Game lasted another 10 or so points, and every time Peter was down break point he came up with a huge serve.

But man - those three games at 4-1 were horrendous. Peter went up 0-40 at 3-1 up and Alves missed first serves on every point - but Peter got nothing back in play. He then missed a couple of easy groundstrokes and you could tell right away things were going to get bad.

I didn't see Bagnis but based on the evidence yesterday if Peter plays to his level and stays mentally strong, he should win.
