Silva got tired after the first set and Veic overpowered him easily from the start of the second set. It was a solid performance from Antonio and good enough to prevail to quarters. Though, he should improve if he wants to get further.
Gonzalez was up 3-1 in the second set but Dutra won 5 straights and gone to the win. He was more aggresive and better retreiver at the same time for most of the time. Serve was obviously much better than Gonzalez. Dutra played inspired tennis and looked really motivated. I think he really has a good shot to take back-to-back tournament victories.
Machi played okay today, I have seen him better. He made too many errors and Dutra was dictating play. The ace that Dutra hit to win the match had to be at least 210 kilometers, it was huge. Especially from him!
Horacio Zeballos - Maximo Gonzalez - Eduardo Schwank - Carlos Berlocq - Diego Schwartzman - Facundo Bagnis - all the other Argentinos
