it was. but its kind of funny because i remember after he got obliterated in his first round of qualifying at the french open there were a fair number of people who said he'd recover and do well on grass. here we are now and he's done nothingFirst set was close.
Chung is still young and loosing to Mayer on grass was expected.
Losing in R1 is realistic unless he has a good draw.Chung has very, very little main tour experience, and of course is grossly overranked now due to the challenger wins. I think his realistic goal this year in WB is reaching 2R. The kid's still green as hell on this level, and you shouldn't expect the Kyrgios kind of explosiveness from a player of his type.
Same goes for Coric. Zverev and Kokkinakis might do more. Especially Kokk since he usually has great draws in SlamsOf course he will need a certain amount of luck to reach the 2nd round. All I'm saying is that one win in WB should be regarded as success for him at his current level.
Great draws in slams?Same goes for Coric. Zverev and Kokkinakis might do more. Especially Kokk since he usually has great draws in Slams
Get off it. R3 was max for Kokk in RG. He's lucky he got two easy rounds because if he had for example, Coric's draw he'd be out in R1 or R2. Not to mention his IW draw. Considering his ranking, his draws at big tourneys are amazing.Great draws in slams?
First, impossible to predict what Kokkinakis will get a Wimbledon as unseeded.
Second,the Kokk has actually had crap draws. Out of three main draw outings so far, run stopped by meeting world no 1 early in two of them (AO 2013 RG Nadal R2; RG 15 Djokovic R3) and in his other outing drew world no 13 (managed to win and destroy his confidence in the process, but still), getting world no 13 in r1 when you are ranked 147 is hardly a 'great draw'!
Amazing to get to 2 two 1s so early? :haha:Get off it. R3 was max for Kokk in RG. He's lucky he got two easy rounds because if he had for example, Coric's draw he'd be out in R1 or R2. Not to mention his IW draw. Considering his ranking, his draws at big tourneys are amazing.
Dar Benji47, Perhaps you haven't noticed it, but have a look back over the threads relating to the teens.Dear Kateoz, I don't know if you notice it, but every time when Kokkinakis and Coric are being discussed in the same thread, you go coo coo cray cray over it. Just chill. All he said was that Kokkinakis' been getting nice draws (in his opinion), that's not a dig on Kokkinakis, plenty of players got nice draws and couldn't capitalize. He's obviously been playing Top 50 level tennis, no one is saying otherwise, you don't have to be THIS sensitive about it.
And if you are going to argue, don't say things like "I know he lost to Querrey, but it was in 3 sets" or "pretty sure he could have won that one".
