Jerzy makes a lot of poor decisions, I just hope he can learn mistakes.

He doing better on that but did make silly errors.
Hitting so hard when the shot isn't there, I'm pretty happy with his progress.
 
Djokovic serving up a tennis lesson.
 
Haas still fighting.

I am just glad that it is only his 64-65 matches on ATP main draw and he is 22 years old only.

It's just his first year on the tour and slowly getting rid of some poor decisions on shots.
Getting a little more consistent too but still too many ups and downs.
Good tournament for him and I'm sure he learned from it, has some video to review I imagine.  :)

Yes, when your opponent can track down your drop shots, you have to make clear decision. A lot of time in that match, he should rip another routine forehand instead of poor drop shots.

i still believe in jerzy. i think his stock is on the rise.
 
 
he can do it all. it is only a matter of time before he puts it all together.
 
he is a top 10 player within a year.

Hail Ceasar  :rasta: ....

loool! Alex.     

On a more decorous note, I hope Djokovic is okay after hearing of the death of his former coach & can remain focused at RG.     

I've just watched the 3rd set of the Ferrer/Anderson match, and KA was just brushed aside.  Ferrer en route to SF.  He'll play either Almagro / Robredo next, and I can't see either of these two beating him.

I hope the NA / TR match will be more entertaining though.   

I'll watch the Kutznetsova / Kerber match for a bit - it's gone into the 3rd set.

Edit:  SK won 6-3 in the 3rd set.

TR took the 6th game on serve after several attempts & although NA didn't break, he is putting him under pressure, and held his own game 40-15.

Yeah, GBY, that was close to a 10 minute game. Quite a grind from the baseline. 4-4 Almagro serving.

Good to see Sveta playing so well after all the time she has missed. Quite a theme in 2013: Haas, Monfils, Robredo, Mattek-Sands, Kuznetsova--all supremely impressive after many months away the game.

I <3 Vinci!

2nd set lol  Nah, she just has a funky game, especially her backhand--all chip/slice, all day--and she's not afraid of the net. Fun to watch against other players, anyway. You can see them get rattled by her game.

Almagro earns the first break of the match. 2-1

I'm pleased she at least held a game ........  I've been watching the NA/TR match.  It was going to be an uphill struggle, but she has no confidence out there at all. Just got broken & SW takes it 6-1. 

Anyway, NA broke & is trying to hold serve.

Wow! They actually have sunshine there! I see shadows! 

Well held by RV under huge pressure from SW. Hopefully she'll feel a bit better & make more of a match of it, but she is being pounded by SW.  Why keep hitting the ball to her?   

Edit : RV held!! It is 2-2! 

The wind seems to have picked up, which might make it interesting for today's matches.  With NA having pocketed the 2nd set 6-3, and TR looking less than compelling, losing his chance to break, I'm off to do other things.  NA should win in straights & so should SW.

Enjoy your tennis today chaps - I doubt if I'll be able to watch any more today.

Hey, 2-3 Vinci. Big service game here.

Almagro saves 2 BPs (Tommy's first 2), and leads 2-0 sets and 1-0 in the 3rd.
