Another talented up-and-comer struggles and loses to a challenger fast-court player. Very poor service numbers for the German. He, like Schoorel, has a ways to go to translate his clay game to other surfaces.

Saw Sijsling at his 3set lucker vs. Clement few weeks ago, total disgrace this guy. He can hit a few nice serves and thats it, Goffin is going to kill him :rolleyes:

Stebe's game is useless on pretty fast courts.
he was in one final on carpet,2 semis on hardcourt, made it into halle maindraw, beat harrison in wimbledon qualies and lost a tight match to dimitrov in wimbledon, so you know what youre talking about :angel:

He is relatively weak on fast surfaces. On clay, he probably has the Top 100 level down. On the other surfaces, he's just Challenger-level at the moment. He did have a good run at Wimbledon, but Viola and Kudryavtsev were not the toughest opponents, and Harrison is still very unpredictable (his loss to Duclos being the clearest illustration of this). Qualifying for Halle is not that big a feat; he beat fellow Challenger-level players with little experience on grass (and Mayer, who was coming back). And those Asian Challengers are as weak as they come.

I think there is great potential, but his game needs further work on fast surfaces. Sijsling, on the other hand, plays best on fast surfaces and usually does quite well at Grand Slam qualies. I expected this win to happen, albeit with a less inflated scoreline.
