RG 1R q: Horna def. Riba 7-6(6) 2-6 10-8

For me unknown Riba served 19 aces and won 10 points more than Horna in 3 hours and 5 minutes. Horna's first match for almost two months. The Peruvian hasn't played in the main level since US Open 2008 where he lost to Kohlschreiber in straight easy sets.

Horna had more break points, but shit conversion. Riba is pretty much all serve and Horna is a shit returner.

Up and down match. In the first set Lucho had a break then lost serve twice. Riba served for the first set at *6-5, also in the TB he had set point at *6-5.

The 3rd set was too funny for words, every time Lucho broke serve, he lost his serve straight away. Served for the match at *5-4, but lost serve again. He was able to get the break at *9-8, then served it out to 15.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
