St Petersburg R1: YH Lu def. P Starace 6-2, 6-2

Another titanic clash at this wonderful tournament.

Lu in great form, winning Seoul Challenger and scoring the easy win here.

Always favoured for the match, and his odds got pounded down to make him pretty much a guaranteed fave.

Easy victory for Lu. He won easily last week in Seoul and Starace is not a rival for him in this kind of surfaces. Now he will have a tougher test against Tursunov. Very good chances for Lu to reach 1/4 here.

Another Olympian clash of sporting excellence at St Petersburg, with two titans getting every sinew of honest endavour they have.


ps Lu's name shouldn't be tarnished, he's never been "involved" afaik

The ATP seems not to want to make that distinction, can't imagine why :-)

Poto deciding he wanted to tank and go home, and a good performance from Lu, great serving stats, only losing 9 points off his delivery. He's really improved this season, finally translating his talent into production. Congrats to him on the victory.

Onwards and upwards Lu.

Hope he can get a top 30 ranking before his Wimbledon points come off next year.
