Well, who would have thought? We could win two matches in a row again. Happy days!!!
Two great matches from me and Lukasz. It was a lot of fun to play Lleyton Hewitt. I never did. It is always fun to play the champions. Very tough combination that one. One of the best returners of the game and one of the best servers in Chris Guccione. We played some of the best we have since Australia and played a great third set to win the match.
I know the second match meant a lot to Lukasz since he played his former partner Oli Marach. It is always a bit special when you do, so I knew I had to be sharp to help my partner. And luckily, we both were. We played a great first set and an even better second. And now we are hungry for more.
We play a "new" team in the third round. Ivan Dodig got an injury here and had to pull out of doubles before the draw was made. This didn't leave Marcelo Melo a lot of time to find a new partner for the tournament, but he found a good one in Erlich. And they have played great so far. Which often is the case when you play with no real expectations. Like we did in Australia kind of.
So we will have to continue our form and preferably step it up even more. Kinda easier that way. Or less hard...
We had an easy day today with just an hour hit and some gym work. Nice to take it a bit slow now and then and conserve the energy. Because like I said, we are going to need it in the next round!
