Fish had a very low first serve percentage (41%) but Ball could only create one break point opportunity (didn't convert). Ball was up 3-1 in the breaker but then lost 5 straight points.

Good to see Mardy win 1st match after comeback, hope he can get back to top 30, where belongs.

Ball just needs more consistency and experience to go up another level.

Stats from Fish on service were very poor but he was playing a guy who cant return all that well, hopefully Ball improves that side of his game because his serve is fine. Fish will need to increase that first serve percentage in his next match otherwise Korolev will take rips at the return and the ball will be past fish before he has blinked.

Hope Mardy gets the shit out of Mugolev in R2.
