Xavier Malisse VS Yen-hsun Lu match analysis

Not having this line. Yen-hsun Lu recorded an impressive win over Fernando Verdasco yesterday and I was amazed by his performance. Really solid display, not many errors, taking his chances when it mattered. Xavier Malisse almost lost to Victor Hanescu, but the Romanian was a bit tired from his tough campaign and lost in the third set by the narrowest of margins. This should not be a close match and Lu can definitely take something from it. He does not mind the faster courts in Madrid, so he will be equal to Malisse. The Belgian can go horribly wrong at times, while Lu usually stays consistent throughout the match, as shown by his match against Verdasco. The Spaniard had some chances, but Lu stayed on the target and pulled through the tough moment. 3.5 games seems to be a bit too much. One won set should be enough to cover this line and perhaps even two tight sets. Lu should not be such an underdog here after yesterday's performance against Verdasco and I have to take him on the handicap.
