jurgen melzer: we believed it when we saw it

February 8, 2010

We had a hunch that the current adidas Spring Edge line for men didn’t look quite right in the white/green colorway, but looks pretty darn good in black/green. And to prove our point, here’s Jurgen Melzer on his way to a semifinal exit at last week’s PBZ Zagreb Indoors. He lost to eventual champ Marin Cilic.

The women took a week off to fight for the flags, but the men were vying for titles this past week.

Marin Cilic defended his title at the PBZ Zagreb Indoors with a 6-4, 6-7 (5), 6-3 win over Michael Berrer. After the match, Marin explained that second-set hiccup that went Berrer’s way.

“I was surprised with the level of [Berrer's] game. It’s not that I underestimated him; it’s just that I did not expect this level of tennis in his first major final. There were no ups and downs in his game; I had to earn every point.”

Marin currently has a 15-1 record for 2010. He won Chennai and made it to the semis of the 2010 Australian Open.
