Didn't see the first set, but Emil quickly went 5-2 up, then lost 5 games in a row. 2nd set was very close, Ruusuvuori had the chance to break at 3-2, didn't, then double faulted on Gombos' first break point in the next game. Still no top 100 for Emil.

Wow that's a nice run from Norbert. First PCB, now Ruusuvuori, even if Emil choked in the 1st set.

Norbert Gombos wins also the best name ! Will watch the highlights since I don't know either.

Been following Norbert's ups and downs through the challengers for years--great to see him collect these tour-level wins recently. He was ranked around 250 this time last year.

Ruusuvuori didn't look sharp in this one, even when he was leading in the 1st set. Too many errors and lack of concentration. I switched my bet to Gombos after Ruusuvuori got broken from 30-0 serving for the 1st set as he just didn't look ready to fight. Gombos did.

Ruusuvuori lacks stamina yet currently. He try to maintain a high tempo, a bit similar way than Agassi or Nishikori, but should get stonger physics to be able to play long ATP-level tournaments in that way until the final rounds.

Now he can play just 3-4 matches and then runs out of gas. Emil, now to the physics trainings asap!
