Good win for Santi. Pablo struggled to hold serve throughout virtually the entire match. Andujar saved two BPs in his first service game. Santi then saved a BP of his own at 2 all before breaking for *4-2 after a long deuce game, in which Pablo saved two more BPs. Santi held for 5-2 and Pablo once again saved two BPs to hold, before Giraldo closed out the first set.

Second set, Giraldo got out to a *3-0 lead and won from there. Good, relatively comfortable win for Santi. Pablo did a good job saving BPs and remaining competitive but was too vulnerable on serve overall in the match. Giraldo vs Nadal in R2, should be an interesting match.

Santi shows Nole how it's done.

I was hoping Andujar could build on his good form at IW but I guess it wasn't to be. Hopefully he will do well in the clay court season.

Nole grinded (since he's a grinder himself) with a grinder, Santi isn't a grinder. That's the big difference :lol:
