Aljaz Bedene

Quote

Aljaz lost 3-6 4-6 7-6 3-6 to Thiem and I felt he put in a great effort against a confident Thiem who recently won the title in Nice. Despite the scoreline I didn't think there was that much difference between the 2 in the match, just that Thiem played much better on the big points (apart from in the TB).

I thought that as well. One thing that stood out to me was that Alijaz didn't seem to be able, or perhaps willing, to change the direction of the ball. Overall the stats showed that both players were fairly close in terms of their level. The significant stats were second serve points won, and Alijaz had almost half the winners that Thiem had (34 to 60).

That's a shame but apparently he can appeal again, though I doubt the outcome will be any different.

Russell Fuller says if that 2nd appeal (which is to the ITF DC Committee not the bods today) is not successful, they can go higher to the CAS of sport - if that fails, that would be it for DC

Let's hope they will appeal successfully.

Come on - Andy isn't that bad!!  I'd like to see him win a c/c title though, even a 250 will do - for the meantime!

I know this is the Aljaz thread but, Hee!
