I actually thought Lacko had a chance against Istomin. Even after losing the first set 6-1 I thought it was possible. All faith was lost when Lacko got broke early in the 2nd from *30-0 and in the next game wasted 40-0* with 3 horrible shots. He clearly doesn't want to drag this match out longer than necessary.
Hey, Russell, if you can't hold your serve against a guy who just came back from heart and psychological problems and is playing his first match, maaayyyyyybe it just might be time to hang up the racquets.
OTOH, Mardy is playing well, and considering his circumstances, that's saying something
