CH Monza R2: Starace def. Golubev 7-6(1) 7-5

Good match from Potito overall. At times Golubev was unplayable, for example when he hit two straight clean forehand winners to break at 3-*4 in the second set, but too inconsistent and didn't return consistently well, made too many bad errors. Poto destroyed Golubev with dropshots and hit his forehand well, made Golubev move whenever possible.

People think Golubev is pure basher, but, at least on clay, that isn't the case. He constructs points pretty well but he makes errors from winning positions and doesn't move very well.

Good win in the end for Potito.
