Pfff, the netcord went against him on both BP and MP in the 2nd set....
But at least there were plenty of nice points compared with last time (that's the good thing with the Söderling match, every match looks like a thing of beauty after that one). 23 winners and 33 UE.
If somebody has missed a set, I can upload them.
I saw it only from 36 10, but that's enough for me. It's awful to play a topspin hitter on such a court. He had to play a real clay court match, but it was nice to see that he could compete in such a match. His fh was quite good, he hit more clean forehands than usual imo. Just this big fh chance to go 2-0 up was painful. Kohlschreiber seemed to be very motivated and celebrated points even in the last game at 30-0, when the match was basically already decided.
Result was NID, but he played pretty well for a clay match. Didn't really look he believed in it and he was good with the result. Hope he is going to play Athens next week. Good chance for many points there.
He had no chance in their last match, so not sure if we can expect a solid win here. I remember this was played on court 1 in Aachen, so you could barely see more than a third of the court on the live video. It was really frustrating to follow.
The doubles would be fun to watch against the local team.
