Re(1): OPENING PLAY IN SERIES--NO SPOILERS SEMI-FINALS--ST JEAN DE LUZ--FULL MATCH VIDEOS Posted on July 4, 2019 at 03:15:04 AM by Jim
Thanks for posting links, jsolo. Both matches were pretty good. Looks likely Ithurria (one of my last favorite players from Orlando when they had a real season year ago) ... well, it looks like he is playing with leg strain injury. I really hope he can get through this. He’s improved so much, and if he can continue, he’s a player to watch for in coming years. He is still developing his skills, notably forehand, which is his weakness due to lack of power, but he has a lot more forehand power than he ever had. And his rebote, which was rather suspect years ago, has also gotten much better. It was nice to see him in late games, though he was often overshadowed buy fan favs in Erik, Diego, and Barandika, but he held his own well enough. This set of partidos is going to really shine this year!
