Di Lorenzo Saves Four Match Points in Marathon Comeback Victory over Chen; Blackman Discusses Player Development Appointment; Tiafoe Turns Pro

©Colette Lewis 2015--
Indian Wells, CA--

Monday marked the beginning of the ITF Grade B1 Easter Bowl matches at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, with the highlight No. 6 seed Francesca Di Lorenzo's 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-2 victory over Kelly Chen.

Di Lorenzo had lost to Chen just last week at the ITF Grade 1 International Spring Championships in Carson, falling  6-7(4), 6-2, 6-3 in the third round, but when she fell behind 6-4, 5-1 in Monday's match, it looked as if Chen would post her second win in five days over the left-hander from Ohio.

But Di Lorenzo managed to hold for 5-2, then broke to make it 5-3.

Serving to stay in the match for the second time, Di Lorenzo went down 0-40, but never displaying any discouragement or dismay, she saved the first match point with a forehand putaway, then saved the second when Chen missed a forehand wide. On match point No. 3, a long rally ended with Chen coming in to finish the point, but Di Lorenzo struck an amazing dipping cross court forehand to save it.  She won the next point when Chen hit a forehand wide, but a slice long, one of the few mistakes Di Lorenzo made in the game, brought it back to deuce.  Chen earned her fourth match point with a forehand pass, but Di Lorenzo again came up with a winner after a long rally, this time with a backhand volley.  Two errors by Chen gave Di Lorenzo the game, but Chen still had another chance to serve out the match.

She was unable to do it, double faulting at 30-40 to make it 5-5.  But despite the momentum, Di Lorenzo couldn't hold in the next game, double faulting at 30-40 to give Chen her third opportunity to serve out the match.  Whether it was the length of the rallies or the length of the match, then approaching the two-and-a-half hour mark, Chen's unforced errors started to increase, and she contributed four to get broken again.

That pattern continued in the tiebreaker, with Di Lorenzo keeping the ball in play long enough for Chen to make an error, although Di Lorenzo did manage a volley winner and a forehand winner to take a 6-1 lead.  Di Lorenzo double faulted on her first set point, but earned a third set on the next one, when Chen's forehand went wide.

Di Lorenzo took an early lead in the third set, and despite the midday sun, played with the same energy and commitment to her shots that she'd shown in the first hour.  When she broke Chen for a second time, with the Californian's forehand errors mounting, Di Lorenzo was up 4-1 and after each player held, she found herself in the same position Chen was in in the second set, serving for the match at 5-2.

"I never think, okay, now I have the match," said Di Lorenzo. "Especially with her. She fights so hard, anything can happen. I always think, next point, next point. It's never over, and I've learned that the hard way a few times."

The match, now well over three hours long, looked as if it might have yet another plot twist when Di Lorenzo went down 15-40 serving for it at 5-2 in the third.  A couple of errors from Chen brought it to deuce, and Di Lorenzo got her first match point, only to watch Chen save it with a big forehand.  A backhand winner by Chen gave her another break point, but she missed a makeable volley. Chen let a fourth break point get away, when a good serve by Di Lorenzo resulted in a missed return.  A long point on the fourth deuce ended with Chen missing a forehand into the net, and Di Lorenzo had a second match point, which she converted when Chen missed a forehand.

"I was thinking I just have to make her play every shot," Di Lorenzo said of her attitude when down 6-4, 5-1. "I don't want to give the match to her, I wanted to make her hit ten balls every point and I wanted to make her earn it."

Di Lorenzo admitted she was "a little shocked" when she saw the draw.

"But I guess it was good for me, because I lost to her in the last tournament, to get revenge," Di Lorenzo said. "Nobody really wants a tough first round like that, but I think it helps you throughout the tournament so you wake up."

As the physical toll of playing more than three hours, Di Lorenzo showed no evidence of it.

"I had a lot of energy," said Di Lorenzo, who couldn't recall ever winning a match from that far down before. "I think I was sleeping the first few games of the match, but once I woke up, I was ready to play. I think she may have gotten a little tired, I don't know. But she's super athletic and really in shape, so it's a battle usually when we play."

Di Lorenzo survived, but several seeds in action Monday did not.  No. 6 seed Sameer Kumar suffered his fifth straight first round loss in ITF junior play this year, falling to John Jorgeson 6-1, 6-1.   Cameron Klinger defeated No. 9 seed Liam Caruana  6-3, 6-3, and the girls draw lost No. 13 seed Mia Horvit to a withdrawal.  No. 10 seed Alexandra Sanford lost to Alaina Miller 6-4, 2-6, 6-1 and No. 15 seed Jade Lewis lost to Abi Altick 6-7(4), 6-1, 7-5.

Due to an error in which a player was mistakenly removed as a withdrawal when he had actually not withdrawn, 65 players ended up in the boys draw, so the last two qualifiers to get in, Williams Howells and Johnathan Small, had to play for the final spot in the main draw.  Small won 6-1, 6-4, and will play Trent Bryde in the first round on Tuesday.

Taylor Fritz, just a day after his appearance in the final of the ITF Junior Masters in China, was back in the United States and at Indian Wells this afternoon, admitting to some fatigue, but getting some practice in before his first round match against Caleb Chakravarthi on Tuesday.

Live streaming of Fritz's match is likely and can be found at easterbowl.com.

I participated in the conference call with newly named USTA General Manager of Player Development Martin Blackman this morning, the complete transcript of which can be found here. The article announcing Blackman's appointment is available at usta.com. Please take the time to read both the transcript and the article and to offer your comments on Blackman's view of the position and his coaching philosophy.
