RG - Day 9

Post by sirfredperry on Mon 05 Jun 2017, 8:27 am

First topic message reminder :

Murray up against Khachanov after the 21-year-old upset Isner. I would have expected Murray to beat Isner and I think Khach will be an even easier match, despite the Russian's obvious talent. Getting an unseeded player in the 4th round of a slam is a bonus for Andy, after getting the short-straw of a third-round meeting with delpo.
   Nishi, after being taken to five in previous round, takes on Verdasco. You always worry about two things with Nishi - his serve and his fitness. It could be argued that the combination has prevented him reaching the very top.
   Stan should beat Monfils (what a player he could have been if he'd cut the circus act) while Cilic should have too much for Anderson.
   The French are guaranteed at least one player in the next round in the women, with Garcia taking on Cornet. Halep also in action. My dark horse - Stosur - is out. I thought Caroline W looked in good form yesterday.

Before Kei played Verdasco:

When trying to argue that Kei had an easy draw:

BS, so? Verdasco did play well in two out of three of his matches, 'smashed' his opponents, using your term; so of course he might pose problems for Kei.

And, look at how Kei played his matches; he needed four sets to beat Kokkinakis in R1, who was just back from his injuries; was pushed to five sets by Chung the young Korean. Verdasco played an erratic match vs Kei, and they bageled each other. How's that for Kei's section of the draw?
