David defeated Ventura 6-2 6-3 to advance to the QFs to play Starace in the next round. Served poorly in the first half of the first set then got better. Seemed to be in control of the match but had a couple of minor lapses here and there but finished very strongly after saving the two break points at 4-3 in the second set.
David's 8th consecutive victory . I'm very happy to see him winning so comfortably. Potato Starch provided him with a major scare during their extremely close and hardfought QF at BA last week. I'm expecting another tough test for him this time.
