Troicki was average at best. When Dima did play an effective shotmaking game of patient aggression, he was winning a lot of the points, but that wasn't often enough and he didn't start playing well until the end, where he came back from *1-5 0-30 down in the second set. Troicki makes quite a few errors for a guy who mostly looks to stay in points, defend and counter.

Today, it didn't matter, because Dima played an overall lazy match, hit lazy shots and had lazy footwork and errored himself out of the match for the most part. Very dull match in general.

Court is playing pretty slowly based on the matches I've watched. Not Miami level but it's not quick. Bangkok, the balls fly quicker there and it's slicker.

LOL funnyboy, you can not claim how fast is some court if you watch match on tv cause it depend on angle of camera. If angle is sharper, game looks faster.

It's not that slow. Same as the one in London.

I'd say this surface is medium especially since the bounce is rather lowe for today's standards.
London surface has been measured as a medium/slow (the same rating as Miami, for example).

On top of that, the conditions in the KL hall are very heavy. Baggy, Melzer, Troicki and lots of others all called it very slow.

All told, this or Valencia for slowest indoors event on tour now imo (Valencia same surface, and similar slow conditions, because it's cold).

Troicki usually don't have too much trouble with players ranked lower than him... ranked higher than him is another story :p
then why did he lose to Nalbandian?

he can play against players with predictable game styles. as soon as someone mixes it up and forces him to adapt min-match, he gets jumbled up...

Not really.

He's playing and is ranked to his real value. He's incredibly athletic for a huge guy (people forget that he is 1.92cm and almost 90kgs) and is very solid off the ground. His big weakness is his forehand (breaks down and is insufficient of a weapon when needed similar to Murray's) and of course the mental side.

He'll always be ranked in or closely out of the Top15, depending on form and what others do.
