Miami R1: Lu def. Riba 6-3 6-2

Expected result. Pere will have a hard time defending his challenger title next week. Lu gets a rare win on the season.

Lu's Wimbledon preparation has just begun.

Too bad these two had to meet so early.

Congrats Lu.

Poor Pere Riba, this match was very fast. 1 hour 1 minutes

Never ever give up

Riba is injured...needs time away from the game to get well again.

Riba is a HC mug However, he is decent on clay. Lu is mug x2

I wonder what is Riba's record in hard court. I guess too bad...

Never ever give up

His record is awful/non-existent on HC, but I'll give it time before writing him off completely. He may be another Pippo, but then other guys like Cuevas, Andreev, Hanescu and Almagro have become at least average on HC. Pere isn't as good as them but I do think he can at least be mediocre instead of shit on HC in the future with more experience.

It's historic on it's own. Purely by tennis standards, Carsten offered one of the great pearls of this decade.

Please refer to my posts regarding this great tennis match to see how things unfolded upon the un-trained eyes of the Aussie crowd.
