Won't be that easy. Suzuki and Soeda on an ultra-fast indoor carpet will be tough nuts to crack.

Pavel won 63 67(7) 75 63. He served 36 aces!!!!! :worship: :worship: He was great!!! His backhand was awesome, as usual. I really don't know what we'll do without him :sobbing: :scared: None of the other players is ready to fill in his shoes...At least we'll have him around one more year :yeah:

As for Hanescu....I can't believe I woke up at 6 am to see that game. I'm not saying Suzuki didn't play well, he did!!! Never having to face a BP and all. But man, did Hanescu suck!!! After making the final at the BCR Open I would have expected him to have a little more confidence...and he made the same mistake over and over again...he'd go to the net straight away, and Suzuki would pass him...It was like watching the same point over and over again...in the second set at 4-0 I decided to take a nap :lol:

It's up to Horia and Florin tomorrow :woohoo: Haide!!!! :rocker2:
