Yh good win, navarro tends to win matches pretty regularly in these tournies especially first rounds, good win for Machado, havent really heard much of him lately, remember watching him push verdasco to five in the us and he looked decent, first match of the year for him and close to his best ever atp ranking at the moment, so well done to him.

Machado does need some results to protect his ranking, the futures wins from early last year will fall off, as shitty as they are with the points doubled from 2008 it still is a material amount.

Looks like he's going to follow Gil into the Top 100. Go Rui :yeah:

Good win for Rui :yeah: Enjoyable player to watch, and also one who can get wins on all surfaces. He's not a worldbeater, but a 70-100 ranking would be great for him already.
