Estoril R2: Montanes def. Reynolds 4-6 6-4 6-3
Tough victory for Albert. Reynolds had two BPs at 3-*2 40-15 in the third set. Albert played his best on big points, good serving, aggressive play. His fight is still there even though his tennis is definitely not where it used to be, missed a whole lot of backhands, but he raised his intensity after losing the first set and that got him through.
Bobby played well for someone who obviously is not noted as being much of a clay-courter. Albert returned better and was all-around more solid in the final two sets and pretty much grinded Bobby down in the end. Still a good tournament for the American.
