Decent match for Stan actually in general in the 1st Set and 2nd. Lajovic had difficulty with the shotmaking Stan could bring, and was also being forced errors. Good combination of FH by Stan early on to get points. Still was serving below 50% but managed to get out of it. 2nd Set had Stan playing a GOAT game to get the double break, but probably exhausted his mental gas. Was broken in the next game, and while he served it out finally, he struggled in the 3rd Set, seemingly not believing he could win it even if Lajovic seemingly was gifting breaks back. To Lajovic's credit he really started to play more aggressively but from time to time just can't get the right points. Stan broke early in the 3rd Set and started with good momentum well but had difficulty against to serve for the Set (and now the match) but finally broke Lajovic on his serve to win it.
Ace pounder? Someone seems to know I like a good pounding and I am an Ace at it, and has been keeping me on their radar hehe.
I haven't particularly enjoyed male tennis lately. Djokovic's style is way too boring (Murray trumps him tho). Federer is too busy mystifying opponents with his low dropping volleys, while nadal is being as unspectacular as usual. Only wawrinka can still wow me and reinvigorate my fervour and love for tennis but alas, he's not been too inspired of late.
I doubt he will make it far in the draw to be honest.
