Federico Coria d Pablo Cuevas
This was a fantastic match from Coria. Both similar rankings, but it was the world no 96 who targeted an inconsistent Cuevas backhand, and is what ultimately won Coria the match. The Argentine was more offensive, and it began with his first serve, winning 83% compared to 58% for Cuevas.
Alex Molcan d Peda Krstin 6-0 6-0
Don't often see a double bagel! Molcan swept the world no 285 off his feet in a dominant way!
Fernando Verdasco d Adrian Mannarino 7-6(4) 6-0
With Verdasco being 37, and Mannarino 32, the Spaniard definitely seems more alive on court. Despite being up 4-1 in the first set, Verdasco did still close it in a relatively even first set. The dominance severed in the second set, pushing Mannarino further behind the baseline in a clinical display.
Novak Djokovic (1) d Mats Moraing
The world no 1 looked relatively comfortable, but maybe saving some energy for bigger matches in the tournament. Moraing broke twice, which is unlike Djokovic's opponents.
