It was RR when ATP attempted to organize RR tournies before 1/2 play off stages. DB was selected as one of the experimental tournies.
Btw Xavier f*cked the experiment quite a bit then. He clinched 1st spot in his group and tanked his RR final match to Schuettler.
As for today encounter: weird match. Some brilliant shots followed by really silly errors.
Alejandro just made those UEs at key points, therefore appeared to be a loser.
Actually it's not weird at all for Malisse. Day in the office.
