After 2:30hrs of battle, Ernests prevailed over Molchanov 6-7, 7-5, 6-4
It was a breaking feast... E. was up a break serving for the 1st set...and lost his break and tye break with a DF.
He converted only 5bp on 14...needs to improve at this level.
E. had 11 aces and 4DF where Molchanov had 4aces and 11DF.
Soo let's see where they will put him on main draw. I presume they won't have him against Blake or Harrison both americains.
It leaves Anderson or Lu...
Hope he will have a day off to recuperate.
