Btw 2 very good things to see for Bernard from the match stats vs rochus....breaks points converted for Bernie...3/4 at 75%......and aces....9 aces in I think it was 40 first serves in play. Very positive stats for Bernie, going for first serves more and playing better on those important points congrats on top 30 and seeds for future grand slams
That's part of my happiness of what I explained....tomic can hit bigger serves....but doesn't do it often in matches....let alone vs's opponents that put as much pressure on him as dolgopolov. So it is a positive sign to see a 1 in every 4 serves equals an ace like vs's rochus. I actually don't think he played RG last year...
He lost to Carlos Berlocq last year at RG 5-7 4-6 2-6.
A RG seeding looks likely, but it still isn't guaranteed yet since this week, Madrid, and Rome results are still to count. Another win this week would help, plus getting a winnable first round draw in Madrid and Rome.
He only has doubles scheduled tomorrow, so his match against Starace will be on Thursday.
