Almost 30 year-old Kendrick won his first match on European clay and 1st five-setter in 4th attempt. 35-22 in aces for him. 35 aces his personal record, served 32 aces against Nadal.

Brands looks like a marathon-man, three 3-setters in the qualies and hard 5-setter in the 1st round.

USA AL THE WAY!!! Kendo in 5 baby!!! Way to grind!!

35 aces, 85 winners for Robby!!
66%- 59% 1st serve percentage brands-kendrick

Great stuff from both guys. Both huge servers. Robby had a set point in the 1st set and was easily in control of that point which he let slide. Rallied and fought back however. In the 3rd set tie-break, Brands had a set point on his own serve and Kendrick powered the return back and eventually won that point. Go Robby!!!

A classic FO match. Two guys who don't figure to go far in this tournament just going at each other for five sets. Good to see the American get it done, especially since he is still recovering from the flu.

Kendrick probably one of my least favorite americans but props to him, he just told Pam Shriver he had the flu all last week, today was his first day not on antibiotics and he had no idea how he'd hold up over 5 sets, so respect for the fight

same here.

If Brands has another day of rest instead of playing Sunday, the result may be different.

Brands

Must have been very tired. Too bad, he could have won against Kendrick, maybe should have won...
