Is the the 1st truly poor loss of Felix's super young career? Baughman is a career futures grinder thus far, who will likely get to the challenger level at his very best. Does anyone know if Felix was 100% heading into this match? Obviously he is still very young and he has already had a ton of hype thrown his way, but that does not make him immune to bad losses, he's still a kid pretty much.
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson
I think motivation was a key factor in this match, Felix has already WC for Qualies in Basel, a pretty huge event, while Baughman was looking for his first MD CH win in over a year, Felix will be probably playing ATP level next year so yeah I don't think he was very keen to playing here.
