Jerzy and Federer are in the same side of the draw. Hass is in other side. Jerzy has tough draw as he possibly meet Verdasco in third round, Chardy or Robredo in QF and Federer in semi. I doubt that Jerzy cannot even pass through 2nd round as Robin Haase is there. If he can go deep in this tournament, it will be good tournament for him to improve his game.

Ofc if they both win their 2nd round matches.

I like the guy and his game, but you really can't be sure when it comes to Gulbis. You just don't know which Gulbis will turn up at any moment.

He was godawful in 1st set vs Haas hence losing it 6-0, but bery good the 2nd. And those UE's in 3rd especially on Haas' mp's.

I'm still waiting on him to break the barrier, whatever it is.

He's getting closer.
But still I think he isn't controlling his emotions.
 
He hasn't been doing too much talking lately and he's seeing players like Janowicz take the spotlight.
 
I'll be checking out quite a few matches.

What to Watch in the ATP This Week: Hamburg and Bogota Previews

July 15, 2013 By Chris Skelton Leave a Comment


Only one member of the top 10 takes the court in next week’s two ATP tournaments.  But he’s someone who might merit your attention.

Hamburg:

Top half:  After his second-round loss at Wimbledon, Roger Federer admitted that he needed to regain his rhythm and poise at key moments in matches.  Taking a wildcard into Hamburg, which he won as a Masters 1000 tournament, Federer seeks his first title of the season above the 250 level.  That triumph came at the grass event in Halle, so the world No. 5 will hope to make it two for two on German soil.  Home favorite Daniel Brands could prove an intriguing opening test, considering the challenge that Brands posed for Rafael Nadal in a Roland Garros four-setter.  But the headline match of the quarter, or perhaps the half, comes in the next round with Ernests Gulbis.  Defeating Federer on clay in Rome before, Gulbis has taken at least one set in all three of their previous meetings.  Most of the other players in this section, such as Feliciano Lopez or Nikolay Davydenko, have grown accustomed to Federer’s superiority.

All four seeds in the second quarter reached a quarterfinal at a major this year, rare for an event of Hamburg’s diminished stature.  Jerzy Janowicz and Fernando Verdasco both launched their surprise runs at Wimbledon, and Verdasco extended his surge from grass to clay by winning his first title since 2010 last week.  In his first tournament as a member of the top 20, Janowicz has built his ranking less on consistency than on a handful of notable achievements at key tournaments.  Similarly, Australian Open quarterfinalist Jeremy Chardy has struggled to string together momentum and has secured just one semifinal berth since that breakthrough.  An all-Spanish quarterfinal might await if Verdasco and Roland Garros quarterfinalist Tommy Robredo use their superior clay expertise to halt the higher-ranked Janowicz and Chardy, respectively.  Federer never has lost to any of these men, or to anyone else in a section where Madrid semifinalist Pablo Andujar also lurks.

Semifinal:  Federer vs. Verdasco

Bottom half:  The sight of Nicolas Almagro and Mikhail Youzhny in the same vicinity calls to mind their Miami clash five years ago.  Youzhny famously won that match with blood dripping down his head after banging his racket on it repeatedly.  Undefeated in their previous meetings, Youzhny stopped Almagro in another three-setter this spring without reacquainting his racket with his head.  While the Spaniard has faltered after a promising start to 2013, he still holds the surface edge on his nemesis.  This section also contains four unseeded players who have reached clay finals this year.  Bucharest champion Lukas Rosol could derail Almagro straight out of the gate, while Bucharest runner-up Guillermo Garcia-Lopez sets his sights on Youzhny.  A champion in Nice, Albert Montanes could eye a rematch of his final there against Gael Monfils, but only if the latter can upset defending champion Juan Monaco.  The Argentine won a clay title in Dusseldorf on the day that Montanes won Nice, his fourth on clay in 2012-13.

Second seed Tommy Haas usually shines on German soil during these latter stages of his career.  Winning Munich on clay and taking a set from Federer in a Halle semifinal, Haas finished runner-up to Monaco in Hamburg last year.  On the verge of the top 10, he showed some traces of fatigue by falling early in Stuttgart as the top seed.  A semifinalist at that tournament, Victor Hanescu could face Haas in his opener, while Bastad runner-up Carlos Berlocq looms a round later.  The other side of the section exudes a distinctly Italian flavor, bookended by Andreas Seppi and Fabio Fognini.  A semifinalist in Monte Carlo, Fognini started his campaign there by defeating Seppi in three sets, and he has enjoyed far stronger clay results than his compatriot this year.  Of minor note are Vina del Mar champion Horacio Zeballos, just 4-14 since that breakthrough, and Rome quarterfinalist Marcel Granollers, who owed that result in large part to Andy Murray’s retirement.

Semifinal:  Monaco vs. Haas

Final:  Federer vs. Monaco

^^^ Williamchung - thanks for posting that article - I enjoyed the "logic" applied to the outcome!   :)   This bit made me LOL!  ""   Federer never has lost to any of these men, or to anyone else in a section where Madrid semifinalist Pablo Andujar also lurks.""     Obviously, saying "never lost to" is a bit risky these days - but I hope Federer can play well.

I had no time to watch tennis today  - but it annoys me that Tennistv.Com doesn't start coverage until later in the week. There is no "catch up" facility for these earlier rounds as a result.
Anyway, I note that poor Davydenko went out early again. Pleased to see Bautusta Agut & Brands through.  Dolgopolov plays tomorrow  - I enjoy his madcap game! 
Carpe Diem

Jerzy also plays double in this tournament. His coach wants him to practice his serve and volley skills?
