He will probably play Cipolla again...or Idmbarek...he is actually in a very good section, and can definitely win a title if he is healthy.

Alex lost 4-6 1-6 to Cipolla in his first match in Casablanca.

Unfortunately he hasn't really found his top form this season and Cipolla is a bad match-up for him regardless. Hopefully he'll start picking it up as the European clay season is really the time for him to be having his best results. GL in Monte Carlo, Alex!

How is he possibly a bad matchup for him, the thing you gotta understand is, that when the dog is on, he's no match for anyone, the match is always on his racquet, the other player doesn't know what he'll do next, so they are always guessing, the only way the dog loses is if he makes too many errors, which he tends to do more often than not these days.

UMAG 2012

July 12, 2012 - Alexandr Dolgopolov takes to the stage to deliver his version of Eminem and Rihanna's 'Love The Way You Lie' at the Umag Player Party on Thursday evening

Love The Way You Lie lyrics

[Chorus - Rihanna:]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that's alright because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now it's a steel knife in my windpipe
I can't breathe but I still fight while I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right it's like I'm in flight
High off of love, drunk from my hate,
It's like I'm huffing paint and I love it the more I suffer, I suffocate
And right before I'm about to drown, she resuscitates me
She fucking hates me and I love it.
Wait! Where you going?
"I'm leaving you"
No you ain't. Come back we're running right back.
Here we go again
It's so insane cause when it's going good, it's going great
I'm Superman with the wind at his back, she's Lois Lane
But when it's bad it's awful, I feel so ashamed I snapped
Who's that dude? I don't even know his name
I laid hands on her, I'll never stoop so low again
I guess I don't know my own strength

Citi Open - Washington, D.C., U.S.A. - Alexandr Dolgopolov captured his first ATP World Tour 500 title with victory over Tommy Haas on Sunday, August 5, 2012


CITI OPEN 2012 - Washington D.C., U.S.A.

by ATP Staff | 05.08.2012

Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov handed 34-year-old Tommy Haas his first loss in nine finals contested on U.S. soil, rallying past the German 6-7(7), 6-4, 6-1 on Sunday at the Citi Open in Washington, D.C.

With victory at the ATP World Tour 500 tournament, the third event of the summer hard-court swing, Dolgopolov moves into a second-place tie with Atlanta champion Andy Roddick in the US Open Series Bonus Challenge Standings. Querrey, last week's Los Angeles champion and a semi-finalist in Washington, stands atop the leader board with 95 points.

"For sure, I’m very happy, and especially winning a match like that [which is] really tight, goes up and down, the rain breaks," said Dolgopolov. "I’m really happy with myself that I stayed concentrated and was in the match in all the three sets."

The fourth-seeded Haas was broken for just the second time this week with No. 2 seed Dolgopolov taking a 4-3 lead in the first set, but immediately got back on serve. Players briefly left the court due to a light shower after the ninth game, and returned to play two more games before heavy rainfall halted the match.

The final, which had begun at 4 p.m. local-time, resumed around 7:45 p.m. and Haas took the first set tie-break after capitalising on his fourth set point opportunity. He faced down four break points on serve in the second set, before Dolgopolov broke to draw level at one set apiece. The Ukrainian limited Haas to just one game in the decisive set, closing out the victory after two hours and 15 minutes.

"He was giving away more free points than he did in the first set and throughout the tournament when I watched him play," Dolgopolov said. "I think it was a part of him, a part of it being the final, a part of my game. Everything helped it to go wrong for him. He helped me a little bit in the last game of the second set. In the third set he was a bit frustrated, so it was really good I got an advantage at the start of the set."

Dolgopolov, 23, claimed his second ATP World Tour title (2-2 in finals), following last year's triumph in Umag. He is projected to move from No. 25 in the South African Airways ATP Rankings up to No. 16/17 with his first ATP World Tour 500 title​

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

by Press Release | 23.07.2012

The Malaysian Open, Kuala Lumpur 2012 is thrilled to announce tennis’ newest Top 10 player, and one of the craftiest and most exciting players on the ATP World Tour, have confirmed Monday their participation in the US$947,750 ATP World Tour 250 tournament, to be held 22-30 September at Putra Stadium, Bukit Jalil.

Top-10 debutant Juan Monaco of Argentina, one of the standout players of the 2012 ATP World Tour season, will be making his first visit to Kuala Lumpur, while the “welcome back” mat will be laid out for Ukraine’s World No.17 Alexandr Dolgopolov.

Monaco and Dolgopolov join the previously confirmed David Ferrer of Spain, the World No. 5, who won his fifth title of the year last week in Bastad, Sweden, and Asian No. 1, Kei Nishikori, ranked No. 18.

Dolgopolov is also coming off a solid result in recent weeks on the ATP World Tour, having made the semi-finals in Umag, Croatia. Dolgopolov is one of the most exciting players in men’s tennis. The 23-year old Ukrainian was ranked No. 13 following the Australian Open earlier this year.

“I have fond memories of my last visit to Kuala Lumpur,” Dolgopolov said. “My coach Jack and I felt very comfortable and welcome in Malaysia and we are excited to return and play the highest quality tennis. I hope it will deliver another KL Champion from my part of Europe, and I would love it to be me.”​
