Riba should take the first plane back to Spain and grind futures.

Only one week for Pere and his nightmare of having to play on hard courts are over.

Congrats to James for taking advantage of the draw.

Good to see Blake dish out a bagel and a breadstick although I did not expect Riba to crumble so easily.

Why was Riba playing this match anyway?

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).
