body attack and reach --- June 21st, 2016

our man Richard --- June 21st, 2016
Day two of qualies started at 10:30 with 6 matches scheduled for each court. I was keen to see three 18 year olds who were semifinalists at the US Open juniors as 16-year olds almost two years ago: Americans Tiafoe and Koslov, and Rublev, a Russian. They all started at 10:30 so I watched Koslov lose 6-2, 6-2. He cannot hit hard enough yet and slices way too much. Much work needed there. Then I saw Tiafoe lose a close 7-5 second set for the match and noted he’s added more muscle but needs to get more consistent. Rublev did win but I saw none of it.
Two other Americans I saw lose we’re Ryan Harrison and Tommy Paul. I was the kiss of death for yanks today.
