Oh well... Jerzy's own fault for being dumb. Bring on Wimbledon and the hope for better form.

Herbert is made to win "sur herbe" :shrug:

Poor Jerzy:sad:

If history repeats itself, this will bode well for his Wimbledon campaign:shrug:

I fear Jerzy will have to start slugging it out on the Challenger tour next year:scared:

Well, last year he lost to Basic in the first round of Halle and then... Can't see him getting another Challenger draw in Wimbledon, so he will definitely lose loads of points.

Janowicz has a huge 2nd serve problem. It's either a highly risky with more than 70% of chance of DF or a very friendly one for the returner. Needs to work on this, maybe develop some kind of serve & volley, this guy is 6'8, he needs to be agressive :facepalm:

As for Herbert, he lacks consistency from the baseline to be a good ranked player. But since he's very good at the game primary strokes (serve, return, volley), I believe he can be a serious threat in the grass and indoor season.

Well done to P2H for winning this. He's struggled badly on clay for the last couple of months but he has the game to do well on grass. He could even be a dangerous floater at Wimbledon if he qualifies. Looks like RG was just a blip and Janowicz continues to struggle.

Shocking from Herbert to be taken to a tie break
