Good win from GGL, over one of the guys of the end of last season. Only saw the end of the 2nd set and that looked pretty good by both.
GGL choked a bit, but then stepped it up after 5-6 0-30, and even sp. Some nice shotmaking, keep it up GGL!
It wasn't a good match, actually. GGL played really well in the first set and Kukushkin was making a lot of ues. GGL took the early break in the second set, too. Kukushkin broke back though. GGL gets broken when he was serving for the match at *5-4 (also missed MP on serve). Then, he saved set point on himself serve at *5-6. Tiebreak was very easy for Spaniard.
I think, Kukushkin was playing much better end of the last year. I didn't like his game today. GGL was as always. The next one Zverev or Marchenko for GGL.
Spending time with your children and not being a wage slave at some soulless corporation or government bureaucracy sounds like hell. Haven't we progressed beyond the idea that it is in loving relationships with other people that we find fulfillment and meaning? Climbing the corporate ladder is essential in the pursuit of happiness.

I wonder if he'll crack top20 before Roland Garros
