Sublime in both evening matches, including wiping your little protegé off the court yesterday.
Decent in the opener against Bogomolov, won comfortably enough but got broken about four times and generally struggled to hold on to his serve.
Lopez was the only scare. Two really close sets where he stepped it up in the tie-break, then twice lead in the 3rd before some strange physical collapse. Clung on to his serve throughout the 4th then for the third time stepped it up in the breaker.
All in all a mixed start but a very encouraging performance yesterday means hopes are high again. Just question marks over his performances in heat after he missed his usual Miami training due to the Olympics. Meant to be cooler this week so fingers crossed.
And you sound awfully serious for a rainy day, MH.
