The guy has a very good technique, nice one-handed backhand, he isnt, obviously, a rapid developer, but the game is there...he looks very nice and elegant on the court

Which was the first?

Andreev?
Yes, Andreev in Dusseldorf :) Let's hope for the third one on Thursday :)

Duci seemed to be more patient than Chardy today. He was winning all the long rallies, and did some great counter shots, even with that backhand. Didn't allow Chardy a single break point :D

Patience and Chardy do not belong in the same sentence.

Not even the strategy and typically intelligent shot selection could save Chardy here

Success of Novak Djokovic in this year impact positively on Serbian players, they are playing extremely well, Tipsy, Troicki and now is Dusan.

Good luck Dusan, I will follow your steps

I was checking the rankings down to 1500 and was surprised to see how FEW young players Serbia has in the pipeline. After Novak, Tipsy and Troicki there is a vast desert in the top 100. Majority of Serbian players in 200-1500 range are already in their mid 20's. That's old to be in the bottom ranks of tennis. Novak had already won the AO by age 19.

Looks like alot of Serbian players have just been languishing for whatever reasons: money, coaching, talent. Hope the Novak tennis academy can bring some of these players along, especially the juniors. :wavey:

No wonder, tennis here only recently gained some popularity, but it's still far behind football, basketball, etc. Besides, even much bigger/wealthier countries struggle with tennis talents these days. Krajinovic was pretty much the only legitimate promising young player, but he's already struggling with injuries.
