Edu saved really well the final two sets and Ruben served worse and worse as the match went on. Edu was able to get on top of rallies from the middle of the second set onward and Ruben wore down. Disappointing but good for Edu to win here, I hope he continues further.

It's not really that disappointing though, RR is going to retire soon, whereas Schwank can still come back and be a force, glad to hear that Schwank sounds quite fit.

Always bad for the game when a living legend like Ramirez-Hidalgo loses.

Typical MTF mug who only follows tennis if it involves a top 10 player.

You're missing out, holmes.

Good for Edu, his form has been really poor recently, hope he can get some confidence.

But why is he playing? Didn't he loose in the qualy against Delbonis?? Did someone withdraw?

Stepanek withdrew.

Ruben is an awesome player and 100% grinder. His entire career has been a grind. Top 100 at 34. He deserves a ton of respect for what he's made and continues to make of himself.
