Well done Chucho for getting the team off to an excellent start in his 2nd match of the year.
Chucho didn't face any break points in the first set, but served poorly in the tiebreaker and Koubek had 2 set points and couldn't convert on either.
Chucho broke early and held the momentum to give his team the 1-0 lead. I am disappointed for Koubek that he couldn't put up a better performance in this match after a tight 1st set.
Chucho served well, but had some help from El Fashionista with 44 unforced errors.
At least Chucho has conserved some energy for the doubles and Day 3 singles.
