I watched the whole match!! Great stuff from both guys!
Robby looked much better in the 1st and blew an easy set point to lose the 1st set. Then, the 2 powerful servers kept getting down 15-30 on their serves in the 2nd set, and finally Robert took advantage. Then, the 2 exchanged set point's in the epic breaker. Robby got down a SP on Brands' serve. He finally got a return back and hit a gutsy forehand winner. 2 points later after a Brands' double fault on set point, Robby had the set. Robby looked very shaky throughout the 4th on his serve and eventually Brands broke and held easily. Robby and Daniel exchanged a few 40-0 service games before Robby got a 15-40 lead on Brands serve. Brands saved 1, but Robert got a nice look at a 2nd serve and took care of business from there. Great match
Robby will face 7 seed Gilles Simon in the second round, who also won a 5-setter aginst American Wayne Odesnik.
