Bucharest R2: [Q] Balazs def. Starace 6-3 6-4

Poto had 0-30 and three BPs in the final game.

Obviously, a very poor result especially since the Hungarian played a nearly three hour match yesterday, so I wonder how the match played out. Balazs saved 5/6 BPs in the second set.

Sounds to me like the ATP should cancel all forthcoming clay events and have a battle royale between Balazs and Nadal, going from venues like Monte Carlo to Paris and Roma. A way to square it all off.

Not the best news to see after coming home from job.

What the hell is this? Who the hell is Balazs?
ATP site has him out of top 400 and he only played freaking futures this year, winning and losing to futures mugs. Gulbis straightsetted him at DC tie not long ago.

Potito had 1/7 BP won, while Balazs 2/3. Sounds like a frustrating match for Potito and much closer than a scoreline suggests.

Oh well, Seppi is still alive in Bukarest

The Hun was about 150 a couple of years ago, won a challenger in Italy at the end of the year, then had a wrist problem and last year was a bit of a bust. Still only 23 though.
