Rampras on the clay is a rare feat and started off very well, then the inevitable happened. He broke to stay in the match, but now Rajeev can back to using clay for pottery.

bjurra was at this match and look forward to the reports of this one.

Not bad, actually I was looking forward to a straight sets loss here. Well done for taking a set, giving it a try on his worst surface, and seemingly playing a decent match :yeah:

Rajeev actually had a legit chances to get a two set lead, but when he didn't take the second it was over. He also came back from 1-5 down in the 4th set. Good try from Raji but what a great few weeks Yuri has had!

Did he? I recall that he was broken early in the 2nd set, and then both players were holding their serve quite comfortably till the end of the set.

Oh, I'm pretty sure he got broken, broke back, and then was broken again, but I guess I was wrong.

Whatever the case, the fact Rajeev even made it as close as he did is a really good effort by him.

It was like seljanin says in the 2nd set.
