ATP Monday Results: Bastad, Stuttgart
Posted by gauloises1 on July 13, 2009
A thrill for the home crowds in Bastad today, as homeboy Andreas Vinciguerra defeated sixth seed Florent Serra in three sets to advance to the second round. (Serra, according to naughty, being one of the sport’s master berators). Seventh seed Christophe Rochus also fell to unsung YFB fave Teimuraz Gabashvili in three sets including a breadstick and a bagel. Fear the Basher.
In Stuttgart, Nikolay Davydenko survived a tough day and shook off some rust to beat Ivan Navarro in three tight sets. And Kubot continued his quest for braaaaains. Expect to see him in the final, gnawing mindlessly through some luckless player’s skull in search of the yummy goo within.
