Reveal CommentAlvaro Tovar Molina bt Satishkumar Ponnuswamy (Sep 13) 6-3, 6-2

Player Comments:

  • "Very good match against Satish. We had some very long games, especially the opening game of the second set, where I had to save at least 6 break points, and it lasted around 15 min. Satish adjusted his shots throughout the match really well, and made the match really tough, but I was lucky I somehow found a way. All the best to him for the rest of the league."  -- Alvaro
