Acapulco: Someone in a hurry?
Rafa started his Acapulco tournament by taking the star night session turn against #157 Diego Sebastian Schwartzman (ARG). Rafa stormed through the first set in under a half hour. The second was looking pretty much same until a hiccup on the 6th game when Rafa was broken. It was just a hiccup, though, as Rafa broke right back to earn the opportunity to serve for the match. And he did just that. Winning 6-2, 6-2 in just over an hour. Next up is Martin Alund.
Consensus seems to be that Rafa moved better, played more aggressively and seemed more with colm than in Brasil. So, all in all, it’s a very good new.
