Btw, 3 of the 4 qualfiers have won their first round singles matches here. Sadly the only one to miss out was our Sumit. He could not take advantage of a relatively easy draw till QF. :-(

The stuff he was wearing around his knee looked pretty extreme...
Charu asked him after the match about those strapping. Yuki smiled and said all well.

Yuki has won the first set 6-4 with 1 break of serve which was I think in the very first game of the match.

Does anyone have live stream link for this ? The facebook link which Sumanta posted above is showing old matches.

That took me to a cryptocurrency site, which has now started calling me from Cyprus to start trading with them -- while not giving me access to the live stream :damn:

Terrible pattern of second set let downs continues. He does sometimes spark back to life suddenly, but sometimes it's all downhill. Let us hope it is the former this time...

2-4 now in the second set. Good to see some fight. He needs some momentum going into the third set.

There were no break points against Yuki in the first set. That is a nice stat. He created two break chances against Herbert, and converted one.

Just the single service break in the second set, but the score looked lopsided because Herbert was serving first.

Yes! The Cypriots are all over me, Rajiv. Four emails and counting, plus numerous phone calls.
No live stream. I've given up, now trying to dodge the Cypriots.

It's 6-4, 3-6. The good news is that Yuki will serve first in the final set.

1-0. Yuki had three break points, but Herbert has fought back to Deuce from 0-40.

Yuki seems to have stepped it up a notch in the final set. It is 2-1 on serve (YB holding easily each time), and Herbert is down 0-30 again. And 0-40!

But Yuki still can't convert. Deuce. Six break points wasted in the set so far.
