Kozlov Finals
By Scoop Malinowski

Stefan Kozlov looked like a dispirited, broken player at the US Open where he lost first round of qualies to Guido Andreozzi in straight sets. One tennis observer said he though Kozlov looked “finished… he has no weapons.”

Kozlov took a month off and returned to Challengers, winning Las Vegas over one of the red hot Tour players Liam Broady. This week in Charlottesville, VA he’s beaten Broady again, in another marathon battle 64 46 64 and is now ahead of Denis Kudla in the quarterfinal match 64 42.

Did Roger Semi-Tank Montreal Final to Zverev?

FedCincyreturngoodSLIDER[1]

Alexander Zverev is surging right now and playing the best tennis of his life. He won Washington DC last week and today he added his second ATP Masters 1000 title in Montreal, dominating soon-to-be World No. 1 Roger Federer 63 64.

The first set was close but Zverev took the early lead with his lethal serving and punishing ground strokes. Federer tried everything in his arsenal, including drop shot approaches and varied assaults that only he can create but “The Kid” handled everything the veteran maestro probed him with.

Atlanta Showdown: The Smyczek vs Young Rivarly

120814073354-donald-young-1-single-image-cutTim Smyczek vs Donald Young will play first round in Atlanta. Just out of curiosity I checked the head to head and was surprised to learn these two have played against each other sixteen times already!

That’s right – 16. The first thirteen meetings were in ATP qualifying, Challengers and one Futures back in 2007. The most recent three all were contested last year on the ATP Main Tour.

Young won the first four meetings in straight sets. Then Smyczek finally got on the board in 2009 at the Winnetka Challenger, winning 62 76. Young regained the mental edge by winning the next two meetings in three sets in 2010 and then Smyczek regained the edge winning the next two. Overall, Young leads the sub ATP Tour matches head to head 8-5.

Federer Betterer Than Everer

0607-113437Roger Federer annihilated Alexander Zverev in the Hall final yesterday 61 63 and played a quality of tennis which arguably could be his very best level.

The soon-to-be 36 year old blitzed Zverev with everything, including baseline superiority, pinpoint serving, serve and volley, lethal shot placements and particularly the drop shot. Federer stung the rising #NEXTGEN star repeatedly with damaging drop shots including one backhand finesse drop – off a deep Zverev drive – from behind the baseline. Zverev didn’t even make a move for the ball.

Raonic Free Fall Continues At Queens

queensMilos Raonic has floundered this year with subpar results, including today’s 76 76 loss to Thanasi Kokkinakis in the first round at Queens Club.
