:eek: !!!!!!

GUGA COMES BACK FROM TWO SETS DOWN TO DEFEAT AN UNFARMILIAR OPPONENT IN FLAVIO SARETTA!!!! Guga was definately not playing his best, and was spraying balls everywhere, but was able to pull out the match with his mental toughness, and Saretta's amazing choking abilities. Saretta started to come to the net more, and showed amazing lack of ability. Despite being passed almost all the time, he continued to try it. Hopefully he will stay at the baseline in the future. CONGRATS GUGA!!!
