Expected result. Pere will have a hard time defending his challenger title next week. Lu gets a rare win on the season.

Lu's Wimbledon preparation has just begun.

Beware.

Lock up your daughters, lock up your sons, your mothers. Heck, lock everyone. The year of the tiger bamboo has commenced.

Riba is a HC mug :( However, he is decent on clay. Lu is mug x2

I wonder what is Riba's record in hard court. I guess too bad... :sad:

What's the second one? I thought that win over Ball was historic becuase it was the only one.

His record is awful/non-existent on HC, but I'll give it time before writing him off completely. He may be another Pippo, but then other guys like Cuevas, Andreev, Hanescu and Almagro have become at least average on HC. Pere isn't as good as them but I do think he can at least be mediocre instead of shit on HC in the future with more experience.

my bad :) . the second one I counted was in qualification of Marseille

so 1-10 would be correct

It's historic on it's own. Purely by tennis standards, Carsten offered one of the great pearls of this decade.

Please refer to my posts regarding this great tennis match to see how things unfolded upon the un-trained eyes of the Aussie crowd.
