ATP Tuesday Results: Bastad, Stuttgart

Posted by gauloises1 on July 14, 2009

Mixed fortunes for the Davis Cup survivors today, as Jose Acasuso and Andreas Beck (who both lost rubbers over the weekend) were dumped out of Stuttgart by Jeremy Chardy and Simon Greul respectively, and Tomas Berdych – who has a right to be exhausted if anyone does – lost in straight sets to Nicholas Kiefer, 63 63.

On the other hand, Pico came back strongly in Bastad, beating eighth-seeded compatriot Maximo Gonzalez in three sets. Guillermo Canas took out Grigor “still learning” Dmitrov, qualifier Potito “serious business” Starace beat Julien Benneteau, and adorable Bjorn Phau beat the Roland Garros junior champion, Daniel Berta.

We’ll be keeping an eye on this one. Unfortunate tongue placement aside.
