Albert should finally make the top 100 with this victory, I'm so happy for him
But sad for Javi at the same time. Long, hard fought battle, very expected given both guys are grinders.
Javi reminds me so much of Beto Martin in playing style and stature. He really needs to beef up that serve. Losing half/over half of service points in such a long match just isn't good enough at this level. I think he has good potential to be a mid top 100 level player but without a better serve and better weaponry in general, it won't happen for him.
