Hamburg R1: Haase def. Bachinger 6-4, 6-2
Was able to watch a set and a game but then the feed cut off the match for whatever reason. Robin played a great serving match, played clean tennis from the baseline. Bachinger is not a bad player, but he does everything a bit worse than Robin and the lesser skill was exposed in this matchup. Matthias has a decent first serve, but it doesn’t go in often enough and the 2nd serve really makes him vulnerable. Robin’s first serve returning is still pretty poor, and he did brainfart some points away but Bachinger couldn't capitalize.
Potential Funky Flo vs. Robin will be very interesting.
