R1: Cesar 3-0 Nathan

Cesar Salazar (MEX) 3-0 Nathan Lake (ENG) 14-12, 11-6, 11-6 (38m)

A huge first game, where Nathan had his chances, 19m, but after that, Cesar full of confidence taking excellent start, and Nathan playing catch up the rest of the game..


It was a very tough match with him because he is playing well. He won a tournament a few weeks ago and he played really well in Cairo.

I knew it would be a hard first round. I also knew it would be tough because I felt something in my leg at the U.S. Open. I came back to Mexico to work with my physio and my doctor, and I feel a little bit better, especially after winning this one as well.
