Can't say they did that much wrong on the break points there.

I think Calleri is playing a pretty good match. He was poor in the early part of the first set, missing a lot of returns but picked it up since then.

He is a stronger server than David and he has a decent net game, plus his BH can be lethal weapon when it is on.

1-1, stupid mistakes by both David and Gordo.

Yeah, David has been vulnerable on the second serve this set.

They seemed in control of that 30-30 point, like they could have finished it off earlier, then Calleri missed the smash.

We are choking again. Never in doubt.

We should have broken when we had those 2 BPs early in the set.

They were in control, but they tried to be too fancy on couple of balls at net. It never should have gone to that smash.

Huge chance missed, Nando would have cracked under pressure in a TB.

I must say that this match is kind of dull. David's returns haven't been as good as they were in the first set.

Cmon Gordo, bend those knees a little bit more when returning. He does not have the proper control height on touch point, every return is hitting the net.

This match is turning more and more into Spain's favour.

That was one awful high volley that David missed there early on, then Lopez and Verdasco hit some excellent returns, off weak-ish serves.

You can say: 2-1 Spain.

What the hell was Mancini thinking when he picked this utter tool Calleri for the tie? :retard:

There were some very makeable shots in that previous game, but as a sign of both Nalbandian and Calleri's dipping form, they didn't take advantage of it.
