2019 Geneva Open

So embarrassing. He should be in his own tournament with a group of players like Zverev and dimitrov. Guys who don’t know how to play anymore and lose to players with 1/10th their talent level

Stan only seems to be good for the 1st set these days. Stamina/post knee op issues?
I have to imagine it's some mental block due to the injury. He looks like he's in phenomenal shape but obviously looks have nothing to do with actual endurance/stamina. Hoping he turns it around for French but not good for his confidence right before the FO.

I know it's felt like this before this clay season, but really if Zverev doesn't win this title, things would be even worse than they look surely. I mean, Albot is the only other seed left.

But probably Street will lose to ARV in the semis. :rolleyes:

Good point, definitely more pressure on Zverev. I'm surprised he's even playing a 250 :laughing:

No faith in Delbo in the ARV QF? That’s a pick em match to me.

Either lefty has a shot at Zedraffe if he gets that far.

Sascha is really struggling. This guy is dragging him side to side wide and back constantly. Drop shot to get him to the net and then the cross court pass. Good game plan

It seems as if he can rallye with no one anymore. Only his serve saves him sometimes, but even this not often enough.

He is really struggling to get through his service games but credit to Dellien for his game plan, the confidence to go for it and the skill to execute it.

Has nothing to do with Dellien he has not 1 ounce of talent. It’s all Zverev whether he wins or loses
Are you watching the match? He has totally taken advantage of the poor lateral movement and lack of confidence of Zverev. He knows he has nothing to lose here whereas Zverev knows this would be a devastating loss for him. Anyway it looks like Zverev is about to get it wrapped up finally.

Dellien has played some nice matches. Had Zedrot on ropes big timer earlierer in the 3rd set. Could not believe the huge 2nd serve Zedzilla ace to save BP.:p This right after commies bemoaning his poor 2nd serve numbers and is the root of his problems on clay and elsewhere.

Lendl stupidest coach of all time?

After that 2nd serve ace it seemed like he didn’t miss a first serve for the remainder of the match lol. Huge serving

You are right, but it’s because Zverev was playing defensive and lacking confidence to take control of the rallies. He should very rarely be on the defensive against that guy.

Zverev still struggling. He is too defensive. Playing two metres behind the baseline and doesn't have confidence in his shots. He has some work to do if he wants to challenge in the bigger tournaments this year. Delbonis should not be a difficult player for him.

sascha is a freaking mess. i do like him, so i hope he gets it together and wins, but yeesh. also i know he can be mouthy on court, but he seems to be working overtime today, even making sarcastic comments to his dad about he only teaches him cross court forehands after he missed an easy cross court fh

His second serve is a SERIOUS weakness. I don’t recall, was it always this bad even when he was dominating?

Yesterday he was 9 out of 31 points on 2nd serve although it was a 2nd serve ace that got the match turned around for him yesterday. Without that serve who knows

I only watched the scores, and from the stats it's hard to understand how the score was this close. Zverev won 125 points to Delbonis 100.

Sounds like Sascha is still lacking confidence, and didn't play the big points right / threw in some poor play here or there.

He won 12 points more than Delbonis for set 1, which is a lot for a 7-5 set. Won 4 more points in set 2 and lost it. Won the third set by "only" 8 points, but with a double break - which may mean that by the end he had found his groove a bit more?

Anyway, could be some much needed match play (ending in a win) for Sascha. Hope he gets the title tomorrow. Maybe another three setter?

Winning the title may give him some confidence going in to the French Open. If he didn't win it, I think it would be very difficult for him. Jarry is pretty solid on clay and he has played quite well in the last week. I do think zverev should win it without too much difficulty.
