BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy
There were weather delays on Wednesday; it's going to be
a busy Thursday in Bucharest....
Singles - Second Round: X Malisse def. (2) F Mayer 7-5 4-6 6-4
Bad news twice for Florian Mayer. First, he was defending finalist points this week, so he will lose a ranking spot. Second, he was defending champion. Those points don't come off until September, but he probably won't be in position to defend.
Singles - Second Round: (Q) D Brands def. (Q) J Zopp 7-6(7-3) 6-3
One more win would put Daniel Brands close to a return to the Top Hundred.
Singles - Second Round: (Q) A Balazs def. P Starace 6-3 6-4
A pretty good debut event for Attila Balazs. He increases his points by more than 50%.
