Hamburg Rd. 2: PHM d. Pere Riba 6-1 2-6 7-6 (3)

PHM down 1-4 in the 3rd, fights back to win in tb. Haven't heard from Riba before, who qualified and beat Korelev in rnd. 1.

Pere Riba is a future top100 player, he´s only 20 y.o. I think.

Good fight from PHM and clutch tennis which is generally not his best attribute, good chance to beat Simon next also

good to see PHM sticking it out under pressure, I'd like to see him making a good run here and given Simons recent form I can definitely see him getting past the next round too

Riba is a shite player. Really. I saw him live

He tries to be like Fernando Gonzales hitting every short for a winner.

The difference is that Gonza is a top notch player and Riba is just a challenger level player pretending to do smth big on court

Still PHM was involved in 3 sets

It's hard to believe what his form is. Must be really awfull, freaky form

Good to see him do a comeback and fight his way through it, instead of giving up hope. He shouldn't have been down in the first place though. Play better next match Paulo.
