Re: Week 46 : Salzburg (Entry List)

This is freaking pity for him, but at least, he has nearly ensured his place in main draw for Australian Open.

After smooth first set I didn´t expect something like this ...

Re: Week 46 : Salzburg (Entry List)

The match yesterday predictably took everything out of AHM. Benoit played well today, and if he plays this way, he should win tomorrow over a guy who really doesn't have the weapons to hurt him. It's all up to him to handle his business and continue behaving in a professional manner.

He's not totally assured a spot in Australia. The official cut-off is #102, which is exactly where he's going to be after this result. But then Becker and Haas for sure will be in Australia, using PR's, and potentially Gonzalez, among others. So he needs to win the event to be sure.

Zemlja pinched another great victory over Karol like the previous ones over Brands and Phau. He deserves to win the title here inspite of Paire will be not an easy rival.

Benoit had 30-15 second serve at 6-*5 and made three atrocious errors. Just makes too many basic mistakes. Zemlja doesn't do a whole lot but he doesn't have to. Really disappointing.

Paire gets another lucky letcord but Zemlja was up 6-1.

Justice for that lucky letcord.

Žemlja 7-6(6)

No break points at all in the 1st set, but the surface isn't so fast.

Zemlja deserved it, I don't like to see sets decided on lucky shots. Too solid. Benoit can still easily turn this around if he cuts the errors.
