Hi- Nico
I watched your match against Tipsarevic quite closely last week in Monte Carlo and it was good to see you playing well. The only thing I was disappointed about with regard to your game was that Tipsa was serving quite a few short 2nd serves (1 metre 11/2 metres from the service line)but unfortunately you continued to stay back on these serves instead of nailing them and putting more pressure on him. I'm sorry you lost but good luck for the future. Eric McFee UK
