Viktor tripped over when he was trying to reach a ball and hurts his knee at 4-3* in second set (his ankle too). Looked very painful at start, but he continued playing after medical time out.
Nalbandian wasted 6 set points in first set at 5-3* 0:40 (3 of them) and 3 when serving for the set at 5*-4 40-0 . Also he saved 2 set points 4*-5 15:40 with very smart played shots.
His BH and ROS were hot as always, FH shaky as usual, serve with ups and downs and movement totally awful. He might still felling the effects from injury that bothers him for a long time.

Good match Viktor!

That looked bad, I hope he'll be ok.

Congrats Nalby!

Tricky first round match for David, and an even trickier one is coming up.
