Triocki beats Bellucci

Posted on September 30th, 2009

In a highly entertaining 2nd round match at the Thai Open 2009. Victor Triocki beat Thomaz Bellucci in straight sets. Thomaz played well but the Serb managed to raise his game at crucial points. Thomaz has improved and continues to improve vastly on hard courts which is a great sign for the future. We’ll keep you posted. Check out the pictures from the match below.

It was a close one. With such well-matched and powerful player, it isn’t always easy to predict an outcome. The game is as challenging and fun as it is placing party bets on who the winner will be. Every player has their good days and bad days, but with training and dedication the good ones soon outweigh the bad ones.

Thomaz Bellucci advances

Thomaz Bellucci won in straight sets against the Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez. His head to head with Garcia-Lopez now stands at two to love. Thomaz played well shrugging off eleven out of twelve break point opportunities against serve.

He faces a stiffer task in victor trioki  , the rather unpredictable Serbian talent who received a bye in the first round.

Thomaz Bellucci will play Garcia-Lopez in his first round match in the Thai Open 2009. If Thomaz wins his first round match he will play the number 5 seed Philip Petzschner.

Thomaz has yet to play Guillermo Garcia-Lopez . Both prefer clay but I definitely think the match will favour Thomaz.

Garcia-Lopez is an experienced Spanish player.

Lapentti peaks to hurt Brazil.

Marcos Daniels played well to beat the younger Giovanni Lapentti. Unfortunately Nicolas Lapentti found the form of old against the number one Brazilian ,Thomaz Bellucci.(76(2) 64 75).

In an emotional five set victory over a top doubles pair,The Lapentti brothers found new heights.

Marcos Daniels then had to play the in form Nicolas Lapentti in what would turn out to be the deciding rubber. In an excruciating long tie. Lapentti held his nerve to win in 5 sets .

Unfortunately Brazil will have to wait another year before joining the elite world group.

Lapentti deserves credit for showing incredible heart throughout the tie.
