Most people consider him the favourite vs Donskoy now but I don't because he will feel that longish match in his legs (was struggling in the 2nd set vs Stakho already) but to get a win in your first match after such a long time is a very nice start and good for the head.
I agree but he was near to win his second match.
18 aces and 83% of first serve win.
Had 3 match points in last game could'nt convert and had a lead in the 3rd tye break and lost it...12-10.
But the first match yesterday is a nice boost for him.
