instant classic, like every Veselý match is :ras:

Delbo was against the wall during the entire first set, being break down once and saving 6 set points (3 at 4*-5, 3 at 5*-6), and also going down 4-0 in the tiebreak. However, he did well to fight back in all of those, won seven in a row to take the tiebreak.

Delbo served really badly in the second (not that he had an excellent serving day, but the second was even worse) and Veselý took it easily, breaking early, not having any trouble while on serve, and breaking again when Delbo served to stay in the set, 6-3. The third was more like the first one, breaks all around, but since today Fede was (curiously) solid mentally he managed to take it 7-5 :D

Veselý is better on HC, but today he managed to rival Fede in the inconsistency department while not taking advantage of the many chances he had to win this in two. As for Delbo, bad match, shanks/mishits everywhere and he looked sluggish, but good work in getting the win, back to back R2 in a HC Masters, after all. Next is Ferrer... not expecting anything there.

That was awful, especially mentally :lol: As expected

Shocked Vesely outchoked Delbonis, I'd say Delbonis is marginally worse usually.

He's had his days, for sure, but he's been better recently, only the Fognini match counts (and really, he did well to get so close to a win, how many match points did he save? eight?) His biggest problems atm are: effort/shot selection/overall movement. Of course, it doesn't mean he's a mental giant now :lol: but he's improved a fair bit on the choking department.
Very decent form since Rio (7-3). Only lost to Fognini-Nadal-Anderson...

Del bonis needs to make his move soon or he never will.
