Re: Barcelona R1: Hanescu def. Machado 6-3 7-6(5)
Rui's serve is abysmal. If I were his coach, he'd be doing serve training all day for the next month, his return and ground game is clearly ATP level (and what took him to the top 60), his serve is possibly the worse in the top 100.
He had so many chances in the second set, set points, served for the match... even in the first set he was a break up. But with that serve it's impossible to make any progress.
Next week, Estoril. Hope he can do better there.
