Vina QF: Cuevas def. Capdeville 7-5 7-5, losing zero points on serve in 2nd set

Great play by Cuevas.

Losing zero points on serve in a set is remarkable, statistically it is almost impossible especially on clay.

Vina del Mar is for Cuevas what Moscow is for Kunitsyn it seems.

The fact that it was a 7-5 set in a competitive match makes it even stranger. I only saw parts of the match but it seemed Cuevas was playing with great confidence in those service games.

And Sopot to Florian Mayer. When Sopot got cancelled Mayer fell into a very deep slump.

Capdeville played really poorly in the second.
It's funny though, a 7-5 set where the winner won 62% of the points

Cuevas earns a SE to Costa do Sauipe with this result.

Good for him, although I don't really think he will be fresh enough to get far next week. He will give it all tomorrow against Gonzo or Monaco, he may have a chance.

It's ironic that last year in this tournament, he also played a SF match against Gonzo, that was effectively a final because Monaco had withdrawn with injury, he even held matchpoint I think.

Pablo played good specially after *4-5 on the first. But those breaks at 5-5 were completely Capdeville's work IMO.
Surprising stat , I was watching the match and thinking he was serving well, but hadn't realized he won every point on serve
