Bucharest R1: Andreev def. [Q] Torebko 5-7 6-4 7-5

One of the worst missed smashes you will ever see at 6-*5 30-30 in the third set by Torebko.

Dire quality match, especially Igor, both guys were tired/injured at the end. It's almost sad watching some of his older videos and watching what he's deteriorated into becoming, but he competed hard and got aggressive with his forehand during the critical moments in the final set. Was *5-3 up in the first two sets and got broken by DFing on break point both times.

With over 100 points to defend these next weeks, this was a must-win match if he is to finish top 100 this season, so happy he got the job done.

A win is a win (trying to be positive), I was expecting a collapse in the third like he did the first two sets, but he held off a break point at 4-4 to save himself. His draw is actually OK since Seppi is in questionable shape and Prodon is coming from Poland but we'll see if he can take advantage.
