Re: Horacio ZEBALLOS
Zeba qualified into Houston, defeating Naumann easily in R1, and Hernych in R2, coming from a break down in the second set and from *0-3 down in the third set to win 6-7(3) 6-3 7-5. In the MD, Horacio defeated Ungur 6-3 6-3 before playing a good match but falling short vs Isner 7-6(3) 4-6 2-6. He had chances to get a break in the second set and likely could have won from there but missed some opportunities. Unfortunate but still a great week regardless for Zeba. The loss to Isner does mean that Horacio will likely be forced to qualify into the French, but he will almost definitely have a high seed, and that's something he can take advantage of.
His next tournament is Sarasota next week on green clay. It should be a surface that suits his game, so hopefully he can have another successful week and get into the top 100!
