Navarro started the match very strong and he was up 5-1 with four set points which he couldn't convert.
González then broke his serve and was 5-4 *0-40 with Navarro's serve but failed to break up to 5-5.
Despite Navarro winning the set, that comeback from González from 5-1 to 5-4 really helped González who immediately broke Navarro.
From the on, Navarro was thinking in the final set. He was completely off the match during the second set, hitting double faults on break points.
Before he even noticed, González was already up 4-1 in the final set.
Navarro was terribly weak mentally today. Very disappointing loss for him.
Let's see how the doubles with Gimeno-Traver goes.
If you look at Daniel's strokes I think they may be best suited for slow clay. He has some extreme grips and long swings. Seems to be going well here, too. Really hope he plays a lot of red clay tournaments in the near future.

Elias-Junqueira predictably an ugly breakfest.
Chucky has no serve and Elias makes tons of errors. Chucky is playing more offensively than he did in the past and uses all the court and changes direction of the ball well, but lacks a finishing shot.
