Zagreb R1: Lukas Lacko beats Potito Starace 7-6(2), 6-7(4), 6-3

Lacko is on his way. Starace wasn´t able to break his serve during the whole match (only 3BPs, all in the 1st set). Lukas broke him once in the beginning of 3rd set to 0, and then comfortably served it out. Good job! Bogomolov/Marcan next, definitely a good chance for Lukas to make some damage in Zagreb.

Yes, surprisingly looked like it. Surprisingly, because Starace is not that kind of player who is all about serve... Lacko is a little bit different, serve is an important weapon for Lukas, but still it was a little unexpected story.

Nice effort from Lacko, but he should be better on return. Bogomolov in second round is very winnable match.

Poto

A surprisingly good effort from Potito indoors. People talking about a serve fest, while Potito barely serves and ace and has a 180 km/h kick fisrt serve
Almost like Volandri would be involved in a serve fest.

Bring on the clay. Will he go and play in southamerican clay season?

Actually, after Lacko's performance in the AO I think he should have closed it in two sets, but it's always a great pleasure to see Starace losing on R1, hoping that in the next future he will be obliged to play and lose qualies!

He obviously should, but I am glad that he overcome some crisis moments, and played for 2+ hours. This may help him in next round.
