[R2] (2) Yuki Bhambri (IND,94) l Ze Zhang (CHN,265) 46 36
Surprising loss to Yuki against Zhang in straight sets ... Yuki broke Zhang in the 1st game but rain started in the 2nd game ... After rain break it was all downhill for Yuki ... He struggled with his overall game and made numerous unforced errors ... He was rushing early for the shot and was hitting wayward ... So not a good preparation for French Open.
