PHM has become somewhat of a pusher. He simply outsteadied Serra. PHM hit 0 backhands down the line, which used to be a great shot for him. He played percentage tennis, and came up with big first serves when needed. He should easily be top 100 by the end of the year, possibly top 75.
Paulo's game is not always the same. He skipped a challenger last week, maybe had a problem.
This draw was really pityful as they are used to practising with each other
