Juška defeats Struff 3:6, 6:3, 6:2

What a win for Andis This was only 3rd time in 2011 and 2012 seasons combined when he was able to qualify for a challenger main draw (0-2 before today), and now he got a really favorable draw and, despite not playing his best, managed to grab the win.

Both were holding very easily in the 1st set until *3:4, when Juška threw his usual brainfart service game. It was 15/15, then he made a wild FH error and followed with a double fault. Then Struff hit a good FH return right in Juška's feet, and that was it for the 1st set.

There was a very important moment in the 2nd set at *3:3, when Juška was 0/40 on serve. After bombing in four good 1st serves he maneged to crawl his way back into the game and after 2 or 3 deuces he managed to hold. Then Struff gifted away his service game by couple poor errors, and Juška served it out without many troubles.

3rd set started with some Struff's errors once again, Juška didn't have to do anything special, but got a nice cushion of 2 breaks, which he held in a rather comfortable way till the end of the match.

Great win and I am very happy Although, I was shaking my head a lot about Juška's defensive play. It is shitty, but today it was worse than usual, but thankfully it was a good serving day with a limited amount of brainfarts.
