St Petersburg. 1st round :B.Becker bt Stakhovsky 6-4/5-7/6-4

Bad day for Stak who made a lot of unforced mistakes against a well packed and tidy game showed by Becker.

Becker wasted his chances to go to a tie break in the 2nd set and possibly close the match there.

It`s a pity that Stak can take advantage of his potential as he can easily be a top 20 player.

Stakh is physically weak and couldn't go all season smoothly

Stakhovsky has really declined since the Harrison match at the Open. He hasn't recovered physically from that match. His seasonal record would be WAY below .500 without those two titles he won this year. He's not even inconsistent, he's just bad for most of the year, but gets hot to put together 2-3 good events to eventually have decent overall seasons. Guess physical and mental strength are serious issues for him.

Good win for Benni, great serve stats in the third. He has a good opportunity to do damage in this event so let's see if he takes advantage.
