Re: Hamburg R1: Gabashvili Def. Seppi 6-3 6-1.
Seppi, breakpoint, PANNNNNIC. Takes some doing to lose all 12 breakpoints on slow clay against someone as error prone as Gabashvili.
Only unusual thing is he's normally ultra reliable as a favourite, but not playing since Wimbledon probably wasn't a good idea. There were also numerous rain interruptions, and Seppi really, really struggles with anything interrupting his rhythm (eg the suspensions at Wimbledon screwed him up in a similar way).
