Stefan won his first round 6-4 6-4. Tough match to qualify against the number 1 seed. Good luck Stefan.

^ I think you meant Stefan.

Henrik lost to Tommy Paul 57 26. Tommy, you better make the final now.

Michael lost in two tie-breaks.

It's normal procedure but in this case it's a particularly good experience because of how young he is.

My first thought was is he too young? I understand he's doing exceptional things but he's so young and smaller/weaker than the older juniors that it doesn't seem very helpful for Baker. But a great experience for Kozlov! and frankly I care more about Kozlov's growth than I do Baker's so I'm glad he's getting this opportunity. Just sort of an odd choice in my opinion.

I had similar thought; it doesn't really help Brian at all. But I hope Stefan can pick up some pointers from him though.

Glad to see him fight back. Hope he can win a couple of games against Broady.

Have you seen his stats?http://www.wimbledon.com/en_GB/score...15/6118ms.html
6 aces total, 4 more than his opponent. And 28 winners to only 16 errors (although wimbledon is very lenient on the errors stat). He also frequented and did fairly well at the net. Very very impressive considering his age, lack of size, and his opponent is currently ranked 19 in the itf.

I'm not trying to discredit this win, but does anyone know if the opponent was more of a clay-courter than a hard-grass courter?

Well according to Masur's ITF Profile, almost all of his points are from clay. But the win is still impressive and his stats are great. Stefan is a good returner so it is not surprising that there are not many aces. Stefan is also a good doubles player and I'm glad to see the netgame translates well into singles. He could teach Rubin and Donaldson a thing or two about doubles .

Quote:
Kozlov needed a bit more time to take out 17-year-old Daniel Masur of Germany 5-7, 6-2, 6-1. The 14-year-old qualifier was up 5-2 in the first set, had two set points with Masur serving at 3-5, but couldn't close out the first set against the world's 19th-ranked junior.

"The first couple of games were pretty rough, I was kind of nervous," said Kozlov, the youngest player in the draw by more than a year. "Not nervous where I couldn't play, but throughout the whole first set I was kind of nervous. I played well until 5-2, then kind of gave it up."

Kozlov, who says people have told him he plays like 19-year-old Australian Bernard Tomic, broke Masur to open the second set.

"It was tough," Kozlov said. "It's a good thing I broke the first game, because otherwise it would have been hard. But I just stopped thinking about it, and played like I wasn't going to lose."

In the third set, Kozlov again got an early break and coasted to the win. With his variety and his ability to change pace and direction when least expected, Kozlov thinks the surface is a good one for him.

"I feel pretty comfortable on it," said Kozlov, who qualified and won a round at the Roehampton Grade 1 last week. "My serve kind of joins the grass, and I feel very comfortable on it, let's put it that way."

Kozlov's father Andrei, who runs a tennis academy in Pembroke Pines, Florida, arrived at the All England Club from Florida this morning, but he didn't make the trip solely to see his son play his first match in the shadow of Wimbledon's Centre Court.

"He's coaching Camila Giorgi," Kozlov said of the 20-year-old Italian qualifier who lost in the fourth round to No. 3 seed Agnieszka Radwanska today. "He helps her out a lot and I usually hit with her a lot when I'm home."
No wonder Kozlov improves so quickly. He practices with a pretty good WTA pro when they're together.
