Looking at the stats, the biggest problem was his first serve. He relies on his serve SO much - in these big matches he has GOT to get his first serve over 60%. I mean 41% for the match! are you kidding!!!!!!!! He actually won more first serve points than Roger did, but he barely got it in. That is huge for Mardy. He's GOT to work on that.

I got to see the match and he did not play too badly, it is just that he just happened to play a guy by the name of Roger Federer. I think that Mardy is on the right track. He just needs to work more on his serve volleys, forehand and on his footwork. He did not disgrace on court today. He just ran into the worst person you could ever play in the 2nd round. Lets hope that the draw will be more kind to him in Miami.

The problem is that because of his ranking, his draw will no be any better. He'll run into some kind of seed in the 2nd round. If it's not Roger, it'll be Andy or ljubicic or Coria or Andre or a host of other people who are not much more fun for him to play than Roger.

It's also unfortunate that his ranking will now drop even more and he probably won't even get direct entry into Rome and/or Hamburg. But if he's on the right track, then the ranking will come. I am just not so sure.

I felt he moved too slowly (other than that couple great running forehand passing shot ) but he played better than last time. Mardy has great volleys so he should work his way up to the net more. Respectable scoreline and it's just too bad he drew Roger so early.

Yes, the serve is huge for him.. but he is saying that there are some technical changes he is making, so it will take time to really get into the flow of that.

Sure, absolutely. But his serve is always a problem. I mean there are a lot of people who, if they serve well they play well (Lindsay D. comes to mind) and Mardy is like that. So he's just GOT to get his first serve % up. 41% is beyond a point of "there are some changes and it will take time for those work" - that's just BAD.

I think he was nervous, he was making so many errors early in the match. So I'm sure that's part of it, but yeah. It's just so huge for him in particular.

it's not his serve percentage that's the only problem, i think mardy has to work on getting more consistent. he came up with some really nice shots, so it's possible for him to be consistent. it just sucks that mardy has to play fed. he hasn't gotten past the second round at all this year

What all this year? he hasn't gotten past the 2nd round since the OLYMPICS.

I've seen Mardy play enough to believe that his first serve % is almost singularly determinative of how he plays. It's scary, actually. There are definitely other factors and other problems with his game, but when his first serve % is high, the rest of his game is there, and vice versa. It happens much too often to be coincidental.

but on a positive note! Flake win 3-6 7-6(0) 6-2!!!!! Mardy lost his serve like the first 4 times he served but once they settled down they did great. Go Flake!
