Pospisil was 1.22 favourite, I wonder if he somehow knows he will get in as lucky loser..
no, they no longer automatically take the highest seed losing in the final round qualies, its a lottery now.. so berankis was just better or pospisil was utterly horrendous.. berankis broke pospisil 4 times in 2 sets on grass, so that tells us what a joke pospisil is

Just like nobody knew Bachinger would become the Lucky Loser after losing to Zverev here...

a much needed win for rycka. i hope he can get some good results on grass this season, clay was a disaster for him. he is good on this surface so the win really isnt that surprising.

First set Pospisil won 6/17 on first serve if you don't count the 11 aces, and 2/10 on second serve. Bachinger should be ashamed.

Why was he, though? It's not like he's done that much better than Berankis on grass previously. I wondered if there were injury concerns for Berankis at those odds. Glad to see him through regardless :)

Surprised Pospisil was beaten so comfortably. As Rumblingbelly says wouldn't surprise me if he's been given the nod on a lucky loser spot in the main draw.

Well, this match was just his first top 100 win on grass, so I wasn't really surprised about these odds. Vashy had some great results last year, so really impressed about Rick's win.

he doesnt strike me as the type of guy to throw any match anyway. but i hope not. lucky loser spots should be done away with

Berankis was straightsetted by Lapentti in the last year's tournament.

Who has Pospisil beaten on grass, then? Rosol 2012? Struff 2014? Not exactly a world beater.
Vasek broke through way after Berankis did. Consequently, he played just a couple of grass events as a legit tour player.
