Good win for Mathieu, coming from a Set down.

1st 2 Sets went with Serve and Mathieu Broke in the 3rd Set with his 1st BP of the match.

Mathieu hit some great shots! :yeah:

Mathieu next faces T.Berdych in the 2nd Round.

PHM needed a win badly. Good to see he held it together at the end. For the first two sets, Hanescu was winning an astonishing 85%of second serves. Once Mathieu started winning more second serve return points, he turned it around.

It's with a sort a relief that I've seen Paulo win this match. It's only his 6th win of the year. I'm happy for him.

PHM really needed a win like this badly, not just for his slipping ranking, but for his confidence after losing two close matches last week. Served very effectively throughout the match and got much better off the second serve return as the match went on, which was the key to victory. Victor isn't a great returner and that proved itself today. Congrats to Paul on the victory.
