RG R1: Lee def. Bjorkman in battle of the oldies, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3

Bjorkman had a look at another comeback from 0-2 down at 3-1 in the third but Hyung won five straight games.

Good luck against Odesnik. I'm pulling for you!

Very solid, as usual, from HTL.

Still underrented on clay but he's got a shot at the 3rd round here.

Yeah, I think this whole era of mens tennis is underrented is some ways. (It's underrated BTW. )

It's a special word mate, invented by the man who started this thread:

Why is Davydenko so underrented?

It's been used on MTF ever since.

Now I remember! I thought I'd seen it before. Just didn't pick up on the joke. Sorry bro.

Lee is ancient

surely these are two oldest guys in the draw. Expected rigged pairing.

Well Lee has 4 years on Bjorkman... and clay isn't Jonas' forte... still disappointed though.
