Luczak close to locking up singles berth

http://www.smh.com.au/news/tennis/lu...881490919.html

September 18, 2007 - 2:14PM

Peter Luczak all but clinched the contentious second singles berth for Australia's Davis Cup playoff with Serbia with a convincing trial effort against Lleyton Hewitt today.

Clay specialist Luczak matched Hewitt set for set during an intense session on the tie's temporary claycourt at Belgrade's Beogradska Arena to virtually demand selection from Australian captain John Fitzgerald.

"He's got a very competitive chance," Fitzgerald acknowledged.

"He's certainly hitting the ball well. He played well this morning, he was very competitive with Lleyton there and this surface is what he likes most.

"But, look, to be honest, we haven't finally made up our mind. After tomorrow we'll have a better idea."

With power-serving left-hander Chris Guccione only four places behind world No.91 Luczak in the rankings, Fitzgerald was understandably reticent to make a public call on his team's No.2 singles choice before Thursday's official draw.

But after a meek first-round loss at the US Open this month, Guccione appears to have fallen even further behind Luczak, who boasts four Challenger tournament wins on the slow red clay this year.

Guccione now has only two more days to show Fitzgerald and coach Darren Cahill he has the greater weapons to challenge Serbian star Novak Djokovic in the opening singles session on Friday.

After frustrating Hewitt for almost three hours, Luczak modestly described his form as "pretty good" and was reluctant to claim victory over Guccione in the two-man race just yet.

"Fitzy will tell us Wednesday night who plays," he said. "It's tough. Our rankings are very similar.

"Gooch got the nod last time in Belgium but you never know. You've just got to try to put in the hard yards and just see what happens."

The truth is, Luczak has been putting in the hard yards for months.

"I've actually been looking forward to this for the last couple of months," he said.

"Ever since we knew we were playing Serbia and I knew they would pick clay.

"That's my favourite surface so ... then (Australian team manager) Fenton (Coull) told us they've got a stadium here with 20,000 and it sold out within a few hours.

"I get goose bumps just thinking about it, so everything I've been doing for the last five or six weeks have been sort of building up to this.

"The best thing in my career is just being part of a team so obviously if I get a chance to play, it would definitely be a highlight."

As Australian No.1, Hewitt will play Serbian No.2 Janko Tipsarevic in Friday's other singles match.

Good to see Pete getting a chance at the singles spot. Talk about an induction though, going to have to play Djokovic first up.

Peter got Djokovic first match and he isn't expected to win, just hope he can give a great account of himself and show what he is capable of.

Watched the match on Serbian channel and the score really doesnt justify the match.
It really was a good match and if you look at the stats they are not that far apart. The crucial thing was
Djokovic's experience, which helped him convert the break points he did have.
Their 1st serve was 60% Vs 61%
Double faults ND 3 PL 4
Aces however ND had 14 and PL 4
Break points and conversions ND 5/14 and PL 0/6 so obviously this was a big one, but it's great that Peter saved so many BP.
Total Winners ND 49 PL 30
Total forces errors ND 9 PL 9
Total unforces errors ND 25 PL 26

I think that is pretty good stats against world no 3. The 1st set was obviously the worst one,
wher Djockovic played great tennis and Luczak not so great, but 2nd and 3rd set was great tennis from both players.

Fingers crossed for the doubles, it is 2.17pm now so not much longer to go.

Peter played better in the last 2 sets, but couldn't take his break point chances when they came around, but he did his best and fought hard, just wasn't good enough.

Peter lost to Boris Pashanski (or however you spell it) 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 in the dead fifth rubber. Once again this was a pretty disappointing tie from the Aussies and it means both the Fed Cup and Davis Cup teams have been relegated to the Asia/Pacific zone. Hopefully we can get some better results next year or blood some new players

Pete took revenge on Prodon and won 6-2 6-3.

He will now play Bachinger in the next round and that won't be an easy match.

Looch won his second round match against a Spanish wildcard, 7-5, 6-1, to make yet another quarter final. Congrats and good luck in the next round...

He;s also now ranked 88 in the world. Starting to pull away from Guccione

Luczak will play the wily veteran Vicente in the quarter finals. Vicente's slice backhand could give him some problems, but I think he can do the job here.
