Rampras took advantage of a weak Q draw and qualified here. Didn't face a break point, and lost only three first serve points, while serving at 65%. When he's serving well, he's dangerous. Bachinger was cruising on serve until 3 all in the second set where he got broken and the match was over from there. With this result, Bachinger will be removed from the top 100 next week unless get in as a LL here.

Most likely Bachinger showed his "I don't give a fuck" attitude, just like in his last match against Borvanov.


I mean, he has all the necessary weapons to beat players like Ram. This surface is also not Ram's favorite to say the least.

I'm surprised by the result but Ram is a tough player when his serve is on. Bachinger isn't the best of returners.

According to Brad Gilbert the court is a lot faster than in recent years...maybe explains Ram's form.
