Ruben Ramirez-Hidalgo is an intruiging player. A complete nobody who near the age of 30 worked himself up to be a competitive claycourter (2006-2007), beating Ferrer at RG, leading Federer 5-1 in the final set in Masters Series tournament.
His playing style is also of interest, he is the most technically pure moonballer on the tour
miles ahead of Nadal in esthetic terms, complete with a never-failing trademark grunt. A legend.
Dolgopolov didn't spare us the anxiety....to put it mildly. Lajovic served for the match, but Dolgo broke back and on 5-5 it started raining. No idea when play will resume. Oh well, who said this game would be easy? I though it would be when I started out, but I learned quickly.
