the stats are very odd, cause he serve very well as it seems and yet he lost a huge percents of the points on his first serve on this very fast indoor surface.
that is very suspicious
If he had served like he can with all that power there is no way he lose so much points on the serve. also Grigor didn't make DFs to suspect he decrease the spead or something? I hope it is not an injury, cause honestly these stats are unexplainable for me.
:facepalm: no one saw the match, we have no idea what went on.
I agree, those stats do look a bit odd. Sometimes there are errors, but no one can be sure. I hope there is no injury, but I fully expect him to lose these matches anyway. *sigh* I really want him to have a break out tournament before the year is out, not looking likely.
I saw Sijsling playing vs Tursunov once. His serve is pretty good (as stat shows). Unfortunately he had to retire from that match due to injury, otherwise he'd have won. So gotta give credit to Sijsling as well and oh yes, Grigor could have done better than 2 & 2.
I'm hoping he can draw a line under last week's poor result and find some good form again. Dodig is obviously a good player, especially on this surface but if Grigor plays his best tennis, he can win this.
