An aside here: saw Brian play Armitraj in qualies at the Vegas TC OPen. He looked great in the first set. Not sure what exactly happened ie if he was frustrated with the wind, tired or hurting but his game really went down significantly. And I can't say that Armitraj was playing all that better in the 2nd and 3rd sets.
Edit: Obviously I missed the part where Vahaly got in as a lucky loser and is playing Blake! Guess whatever was going on in qualy finals was just for a day.
I need the time to follow tennis more often
