Richard defeated Tomaz Bellucci 6-1 6-4 to reach the round of the last 16 in Montreal where he will meet Nicolas Almagro.
The match was neither streamed nor televised, so the statistics have to speak. Both players had low service percentages in the first set, but the great difference was the break point conversion rate. While the Brasilian was not able to use his chances, Richard did so successfully to take the set 6-1.
In the second set, Richard won his service games rather comfortably, while Bellucci struggled in most of his. One break in the third game was enough for Richard to score a convincing 6-1 6-4 win.
