Buenos Aires R1: Nalbandian d. Starace 6-4 6-4

Good match overall, David was erratic at times but he seemed good for a start, some great shots through the whole match. Potito played a nice match and made David work which is good for his confidence. Entertaining match.

Good match. I love claycourt tennis under the lights. And, of course, to see Nalbandian so motivated to play for the crowd.

ahah, what the hell is happening on the court!?

routine job for Nalbandian,

now let's see if he can play 5 matchs in a row to win the title without injuries, he has a good path to the semi where he could play Almagro

they don't have light at French Open, so they can't make night sessions,

but when they will built a roof on the central court and add light in 2016 night sessions will be possible

The idea of a nastier FO crowd in night matches is mind-blowing

there was a contest to throw the Claro red balls into the trophy but people were throwing them at Nalbandian and the reporters

Security had to protect them it was pretty funny. Linemen got targetted as well
