Gave Quigley a good run for money after almost a year without matches it seems.
Didn't look injured to me just rusty. My report from today, first off here is my post match interview with Rhyne after he won https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWX-...ature=youtu.be
has a sore neck, now working with a sports physio among the tidbits.
Nishioka looks to be a really good player, undersized counterpuncher with more raw power than Nishikori but less refined, moves well, aggressive when he needs to be, his strokes don't break down easy. Smyczek got bossed around the court and he's a grinder, left scrambling.
Fratangelo plays too aggressive on clay but got away with it, comes forward too much, Veic mostly cruised but he had a huge hiccup from 5-1 up in the first set, went back to 5 all and his opponent Rice saved a set point but he finally get things figured out and took the tiebreak, then a breadstick to follow.
Polansky got broken serving for the match in the third but broke right back and took it by holding, gets revenge on Marchenko for Savannah loss.
Kokkinakis got deflated, he hung with DY for a set and then the air came out of the balloon, DY showed experience and was frankly clutch to get through.
Ginepri, Ward and Melzer destroyed their poor on har-tru opponents.
Lastly about Rybakov, he talks to himself in Russian during the match (I think Russian or some Eastern European language, perhaps Ukrainian), very good single handed backhand and he's fast and lanky but his shot selection and footwork need work an his serve is nowhere near this level right now, he got lobbed and drop shotted left and right because of court positioning and shot selection issues, and Agar feasted on his serve.
