Johanesburg R1: Alves def Dolgopolov Jr 5-7 6-2 6-3
I thought Dolgopolov would be a tougher opponent.
Anyway good win for Alves, the gye is from my city and he had nothing more to lose with 27 years old so he can try to do well in those mm hard tournaments, better then facing the clay court players in south america.

Well, I think Alves has no variation on his game but is an offensive player and a fighter while Dolgopolov seems to have some kind of good variation and good technique.
From what I saw Jr. wasnt patient in the match to trouble Alves with variations, probably bad mentality.
