Khachanov far too strong for Van Assche in Dubai

Khachanov far too strong for Van Assche in Dubai

Karen Khachanov is back to his best. Winner of the ATP 250 in Doha last week, he confirmed this trend by delivering a very solid match to defeat Luca Van Assche in the 1st round in Dubai.

The young Frenchman couldn't do much. He led 3 games to 1 in the second set, but was then unable to resist the Russian's comeback. The Russian won the last 5 games of the match to win 6/2, 6/3 in just 1h20.

Khachanov will face Czech Jiri Lehecka in the 2nd round.

Considering rafa is playing one of the quickest players on tour and that this is only his 3rd tour match in well over 300 weeks I don't think this is too bad. Not too say I wouldn't have liked to see

I said earlier that Rafa would win in 3 sets & I still believe he can

Rafa never lost a 2R match at Barcelona before. It's really heartbreaking to see my idol going down like this. But I guess, if this is what it takes for him to be 100% fit for French Open then I will

Let's just say Trevisan is a better clay courter and played as such and Naomi has yet to master the surface.
