Solid, unflashy and very competent display from Greul. Kendrick was pretty useless, he never got anywhere to good form.

that's an unexpected win after the shitty period Simon was having

The surface at San Jose should suit Kendrick, and he won Dallas on Saturday. The time difference is only 2 hours and this was midday match. Odd performance from Kendrick, but good win for Gruel to stay focused and take advantage of whatever was going on.

I guess Rob underestimated his opponent and got punnished for it

I saw the match and Kendrick just couldn't seem to get it going at all. He didn't seem to know how he wanted to play the match, at the baseline or the net, and kept getting outhit from the back of the court. In the end Kendrick was so frustrated and making so many mistakes that Greul just had to hang in the rallies until the mistake came or the court opened and he could aim for it. Really poor display from Kendrick.
