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