    Young Dane Kasper Fangel won the first set against Hashim Roslin 7-4. He had 6-0 before Roslin had even got to serve! It would be quite an upset if he keeps this up...

    Roslin took second 7-5, so I guess things are back to normal...

    Sorry for spamming... but it looked kinda dramatic from the start.

    As expected, Roslin won 4-7, 7-5, 7-4, 7-3...

    Just as surprisingly Tine Rasmussen won her first set against Zhou Mi 7-0!
    Of course she lost the next 3 games...

    This just shows that the new scoring system is utter ****.

    If it takes the top guys (and girls) 1 game to even get into the game

    it also surprised me.but i have every confidence in Zhou Mi.
    perhaps she was testing the waters in the first set ? .

    Sorry, that doesn't make sense. Then that would surely apply to all players, right? Why would the better players need more time to "get going"? I think Roslin just under-estimated his opponent initially, before he came to his senses.

    How does it not make sense, i have played the system a few times and i hate it,as with the majority of people i know. What i meant was that at the start of every game u need a few points in order to test your opponent and work out weaknesses and strengths, by the time you do this is the new system 1 game is nearly over so thats wat i meant when i said they take a while to get into it..

    That sounds like an excuse for lack of focus.

    shahzad: easy advice - test your oponent just when you serve. There is no place for risking when you are on return.
    I personaly like the new scoring system. My strategy is to play the best I can from the begining and observe carefuly what are reactions of my oponent. I am risking (if needed) when I serve, when I am on return I have a bit more "in and over" strategy. It works quite fine...
