Default Santiago R1: Joćo Souza d. Simon Greul 3-6 6-4 7-6(5)

Probably not that an important result, but this is a huge win for one of our biggest hopes since some time ago.

"Feijćo" is having good results in challenger since 2007 but he struggled a lot to reach his first final, which came in the end of last year (lost to Chela in Medellin). This year he had though losses to Massu and Giraldo in matches he had many chances to win.

In Santiago he passed through qualies to reach his first MD ever in the main tour.

Today he made a big upset defeating Greul. Such a great win and this should be a great boost for his confidence.

For those who don't know the guy, he has a good serve and relies a lot on it to win his service games. Other than that he can dominate points with a powerful forehand. He is a good server and a baseliner.

Congrats Jćo, keep it going.

Good win. He's much more entertaining than Bellucci IMO.

Greul was posting some promising results during/after the USO. Still not consistent enough I guess.

Good win Joao!

Bad one from Greul though, he used to win these close matches...

Awful for Greul - was utterly comfortable on serve till *4-5 in the second. Two double faults, he's broken, and immediately goes 0-3 in the 3rd. Pulls it back, serves for the match..... two doublefaults, broken, then loses tiebreak.
