So I trekked down to Indy to watch the semis this past Saturday. Caught Rusedski practicing before his match w/Dent. In person, I didn't see anything about Ginepri that would especially distinguish him from a lot of players on tour - apart from the fact that he WILL take his cuts, come hell or high water. Seems to be common theme with players of his generation. Lots of heart on that kid - if you want to learn to grind, you could pick worse role models. In contrast, Karol Beck has the kind of game that really doesn't translate that well on television. He's basically a softballer, all sneaky quick pace and angle. Hits the ball really square, seems to catch it nice and center. He aced Ginepri surprisingly often, and I doubt he broke 105 on any of them. Long, loopy, lazy strokes, pretty graceful in general. Now the Dent/Rusedski semi was a different story. Frankly, I'm not sure if it's a physical or a mental thing or what - but it looked like Rusedski just wanted to go home. Dent looked pretty good. Even casual observers described him as "stocky" but it's pretty obvious the man's got talent. I'd like to see him get in gear and do some damage - he's fun to watch. The doubles - Keifer/Hrbaty and someone and someone else - was not especially interesting, and I actually like watching doubles. On the way out, we saw Jim Courier and someone I couldn't identify doing some two at net against I think Leif Shiras (at least it looked that way with his closed stances and traditional grips). It was nice seeing Courier on court again - he still seems really fit.
