Had a couple nice matches so far in Biella, including a good win today over Hernandez in which he had to play some physical tennis to grind out the win. It was just such a pleasure watching him play this morning. His predicted road entails Naso in the Quarterfinals, Podlipnik-Castillo in the Semifinals, and De Bakker in the Final. all of these would be very winnable matches for him and a great way to get his ranking up to possibly play US Open qualies. It's nice to see Lamine back in action!
