Too much flair and variety from Dogs Balls, the slices stuffed Simon's rhythm.

Dolgo's leg should be fine for the AO.

He seemed to have a revival right at the end of the match, great forehands to close it out. He would slice until Simon finally went to his forehand, hit it heavily crosscourt, and took control of the points from then on.

Good for tennis and me! Now Tomic have to win it, to make it the perfect final!

Dolgo looked good for the most part. Especially in the first set and he was strong in closing the match out. I hope he's fine for the finals and the AO with that leg injury.

Simon was atrocious during the end of that second set.

Simon was diabolical, continuation of his paris masters form here :lol:

Dolgo was really sharp first set played great, then tweaked a thigh muscle (?) and that threw him off for a while, but he hung in there and put Simon out of his misery in 2, ending the match with a few good games.

I can't tell if Simon is still in his funk from last season, or Dolgo's game is what upset him so.
Simon likes rhythm and hates slices, so this was never going to be easy for him. Still after rallying early in the second, he just went off the rail in the latter part- going for crazy winners on return when he should have been playing more conservatively and deliberately testing Dolgo's movement after the MTO.

Getting drunk watching Dolgo play? You must be one of my favourite posters ;D
She plays the game where you have to sip a drink every time Dolgo slices.

Thought you were always like that.

Seriously, Jack Reader had a simple plan for Simple Simon, give him no pace, work the angles then crunch the short balls. Tactics 101 executed to a tee.

:lol: no just having a few too many while waiting for some six hours to see Dolgo play - that match started at 4:30 AM where I live, ok? :p

So now, bedtime for me! :wavey:

I'm happy. My love-hate relationship with Dolgopolov is getting to the good-side again.
Though I'd never forgive him for beating Tsonga in 2011AO
