Santi out of fuel from Santiago. Mello always plays well in Brazil. Not a surprising result, but a great one for Montanes.

Santi. :sad: Still tired/disappointed from Santiago probably.

Hope the Santiago loss doesn't impact negatively on his game

I can see Mello beating Montanes, but then again, I fail to see what Mello can do to actually beat Albert. He's a pretty aggressive baseliner, but the courts are slow in Costa. Also, Albert is a good defender. And Albert can turn points around with his FH, and be just as consistent. So, I think it's a difficult proposition for the Brazilian. This is a great win for him regardless.

BTW, I saw Santi pulling out of BA, hope there is nothing wrong.

Santi :( :hug:

I expected more of him than to burn out in the first round. I guess he was tired after the Chile tournament..

Expected early loss. But his pulling out of BA is totally unexpected...:awww:
