Good solid victory for Richard, he was always in control. He lead 6/2 4/2 but got broken when serving at 4/3, he then broke the Ebden serve once again after Ebden was 30-0 up. He did this on his 4th BP in the game.
Through to the 2nd round where he will face Ze Zhang on Thursday.
Yay Richie!! Hope he can make a good run in the last few tournaments and make the WTF! Just needs to get to no.9. Think he'll get past Almagro - Tipsarevic will be much tougher. Needs to make at least SF here - getting past Nole tough but you never know.
