What really surprised me was how well Chardy was volleying towards the end of the first set.

Haven't seen Chardy play before Kubot, so can't comment on that. I really liked the Kubot/Marach team. It was a shame they split. (Sure some people could make the argument that Kubot was the much better player in the team but I never agreed with that). Hopefully C/K stick together for a while. Though it may be tough with both concentrating on singles.
