    One point I notice already is that Peliwo finds it hard to generate easy power with his racket. The ball barely reacts off his strings. His backhand looks very solid, his forehand seems to require too much effort and is slightly problematic at least from what I'm seeing so far. Also his first serve lacks pace and accuracy. His movement looks sharp and he seems to have good balance and to be a pretty good athlete. Watching on...

    filip should be in this match all the way if he can get a bit more net clearance on his forehand. netted a few and hit some short. if he can just get half a foot higher over the tape, that'll give him enough dept of shot to stretch jaziri on the forehand side and push him back on the bh side (which he's been trying to do so far).

    I can't watch but an obvious sad stat so far...Jaziri serving only 19% but Filip has only won 4 points against him in return games. He needs to press the guy, maybe chip and charge, instead of letting the rallies extend.

    That forehand is often hit with a lot of top spin but without a biting and venomous force, so they just end up being tame and land short. A huge slew of unforced errors exclusively from the forehand side likely cost Peliwo the break back.

    Peliwo's backhand can be pretty lethal and it's also quite consistent. It definitely appears to be his more consistent wing and he can also more easily redirect the ball with the BH than the FH without looping the ball.

    The serve continues to lack accuracy; perhaps Mr Peliwo is trying to force too much pace which he doesn't naturally possess at the moment on those first serves.



    **
    Jaziri claims the set with a spectacular cross-court forehand on the run followed by forcing an error off a first serve. In general his court position is closer to the baseline than Peliwo's, who is getting pushed back a little too easily and finds it hard to work himself back into points because his strokes are falling short a little too often. Hopefully he can address this somewhat in the second set..

    Such fight and eagerness in general is present in Peliwo's demeanour, and he claims the second set against Jaziri against the serve with a backhand winner down the linoleum.

    Not directly related but I smile when watching someone from Tokyo play someone from London in Kentucky.

    Peliwo's reaction said it all at the end; he's ecstatic to have made it to only his second challenger semi so far.

    Great comeback for Filip! The win guarantees a minimum of a jump into the mid-300's and tons of confidence for dealing with regular ATP tour veterans. Hats off for hanging in there and adapting through the deficit and finding a way to roll at the end!

    F***!! It's all over for Peliwo.

    It's time to retire, the run was good while it lasted.

    Peliwo & Ward a close match?

    Actually don't think Ward is playing that well but he is battling through.
    Peliwo has great energy & really creates momentum on court.
    Last year at Wimbledon he really fought back from some tough positions.
    Could be a tight semi.
    The other one with Ducks & Klahn is interesting- if they go toe to toe grinding, I would favour the aussie. Klahn's serve will be a factor always, especially on quick hard courts...

    Blow OUT!

    Really surprised by Peliwo & Ward match.
    Did anybody see it live?
    Wardie is solid player but must have played really well & FP less so...
    Duckworth was looking really solid when I switched the internet feed, Klahn a little flat, tired.
    Very hard to tell off video though so interested to hear any impressions from anyone in Kentucky?

    edit: just read: Peliwo did not bring his best game against Ward.

    "I was expecting a tough match, but in no way was I expecting to play that badly," he said. "It was one of those matches that you don't really learn anything from because it goes by so quickly."

    No reason to doubt him but Peliwo will learn from this: getting chopped like this makes sure you don't get complacent. He will be fine.

    On other hand, glad for James Ward getting to Challenger final, hope the success rubs off on Dan Evans, who is learning off him, what he has to do. Really looking forward to final tonight with JD.

    Tough loss, but there's no shame in losing to the Mighty James Ward. When he decides to play his best, there is nothing you can do.

    The Canadians all play each other in R1 except for pospisil who is alone. How did that happen? Too bad.

    Too bad? It's good for them because they'll be guaranteed a Canadian in round 2. If the Canadians played other players, Milos would be the only one left in round 2

    I'm assuming his ranking improvement will be enough to get him a main draw WC for next week's Rogers Cup, which would offer him a chance to add some very notable ranking points for his level with only a win or 2.

    He had already mentioned his coach would give him the qualification WC for the purpose of making him play more matches so he can gain experience playing, confidence winning, as well as points for his rankings.

    Out to Frank, 1R in straights but only one break of serve difference in both sets. I know he wanted more, especially playing in front of his hometown crowd but a good rebound from the Ward drubbing.

    Good luck in Montreal!

    So what does this do for his ranking?

    45 points for second round?

    move him to 200 ranking wise?

    Quick question: as reigning Boys champ @USO does Filip automatically receive a WC into main draw?

    The 'Zoo champion gets in; it would seem an appropriate reward to WC last year's Boys winner.

    No WC.

    The winner of the 'zoo is sure to be an american. Not so for junior uso or ncaa championship
