Re: CH Santiago R1: Battle of youngsters. Rufin def. Marti 5-7 6-4 6-3
Great win for Rufin coming off a bit of a bad spell, he really should be higher than his current ranking of 182, did brilliantly in Montpellier and hopefully he can build on the good win. That said challengers are tough, a few of his recent losses were to Malek Jaziri (very good shot maker) and Alberto Brizzi who is solid on the clay. Never the less hopefully Rufin can rise and this win is hopefully a start because this match against Javier Marti was very tough to call.
