CH Dallas R2: Phau def. Sela 7-6(5) 3-0 ret.
Dudi led 5-*2 30-0 in the first set. Bjorn started finding his game and playing better, not making the countless errors he did to get into a losing position, and Dudi imploded, although Bjorn hit some good passing/defensive shots to break to stay in the set. Dudi got a couple calls he didn't like and the tiebreak was disastrous from both. Bjorn had *6-3 in the breaker before finally winning. The second set, Dudi tanked and quit. He seemed to have an issue with his leg yesterday vs Sweeting, but I think he mostly didn't want to play anymore.
Very important win for Bjorn. If he wins tomorrow vs Haase he'll be right around 100 in the rankings for the first time in over a year.
