CH Tunis SF: Ramirez-Hidalgo def. Granollers 7-6(4) 7-6(3) in 2:36.
Ruben won 70% of service points and faced one break point. From the end of the first set through the entire second set Ruben barely lost service points. Seven serve points lost in the second set, and 55-33 serve points played differential in the second set. Marcel saved 5/5 BPs, including at 5 all, but it wasn't enough.
Ruben up to #88 with this result and will be top 75 with a win tomorrow.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
Granollers hasn't done anything special this year, but I don't get why people are saying that what happens with him , he always has a slow start to the season, and only does 2 big results per year ( last year Valencia winner & Gstaad winner).
Congrats to RRH , what a leyend he is, nice to see him getting a good ranking to play more ATP tournaments
