Surprised tha Viktor lost set to some mug here, who knows if he would win if not rain break - which lasted hours. Also Viktor won 3 matches just to qualify to main draw in small challenger 44k EUR prize money.... this is pathetic, i mean that guy just last week won 2 matches at 250 level event, why they didn´t give him WC to main draw? I hope he wins this challenger, would be good for his confidence and also at least some points to ranking

Viktor started well, but lost some focus when he was serving for the 1st, nevertheless, I don't think he was in danger here, before the rain delay he was in a decent position with 2-1* 40-40 and most like would've won anyway. Hanescu is going to be tough, but he's probably going to play better than today.

Before being banned, Viktor was not well known for his ability of staying focused and was sometimes able of choking...

I hope this ban gives him a strong will of revenge in order to change that state of mind, but I am not sure people can change that easy.

The bottom half of his tournament :lol:

#2 and #3 seeds Bolelli and Gojowczyk withdrew, so the only seeds are Volandri and Ungur, who are fairly awful recently. In the mean time you have R1 matches between Gimeno-Traver and Coric plus Troicki and Hanescu in the top half :haha:

Ramirez-Hidalgo - Starace, though :drool:

Vik's worst match since coming back by far, should have been a walking by here vs. unknown #673, instead he has a chance to serve out the 1st set at 5-4 but doesn't do it, then plays a fairly close TB to pull it out, in the second with the Italian serving at 5-3, the game is very long with BP's and SP's all over the place until finally Omar takes it, Vik was being too passive, making too many errors.

The top half is loaded and the bottom half is laughable. :lol:

Beating Hanescu on clay will not be easy for Viktor.

If he loses tomorrow, he'll get 5 ranking points for his torubles in Cortina. But that represents about 30 ranking spots: up to 595!

Baby steps, Viktor, baby steps...

And who knows... he may beat Hanescu. :D

More importantly right now he will have played 4 matches this week.

Will have to play a lot better vs. Hanescu.
