And Juan Monaco wins it 2-6 7-5 7-6 (2). And to think David was two points from sealing the deal.

Talk to the hand because the ears don't hear you.

Re: Copa Telmex 2009 !

Maybe I should be thankful that my computer decided to crash when David started to serve for the match...

Re: Copa Telmex 2009 !

The more I think the more I found this a very suspicious result. David was at least 2 classes higher than Monaco for 2 sets and all of a sudden Monaco stopped spewing errors and David starts to make them. Too much of a coincidence. David was placing the ball nicely from side to side but none of those shots had any pace on them. He wasn't agitated at all at any point which is also very unlike him. I hope this match won't fall into investigation by a gambling committee.

Re: Copa Telmex 2009 !

I watched part of the third set on the Betfair stream and they still had David as the favourite to win this match.

I just thought he looked really tired in the third. Like he didn't have much left in the tank. After the Ferrero match, David said he had a fever on the day of the match against Gimeno-Traver. Which would explain his fading strength. Though not the choke...

Which, folks, may explain that blister on the side of his mouth.

Nah. For the last few days, David has not feeling well. When you're not feeling well, it's difficult to expend a lot of emotional energy.

He looked like he did not want to spend either emotional either physical energy. But he was still 2 classes above Monaco until that 5-4 30:0.

That's why it was imperative for him to have closed Monaco out then. One almost had the feeling that, if he did not, then it was going to be a wrap.

Re: Copa Telmex 2009 !

His incapacity to serve out sets or matches is getting ridiculous.

As soon as he was broken serving for the match I had no doubt there was a big chance he would lose the match.

He is getting too predicable in a really bad way.

I agree. This one was just appalling. It was handed to him on a platter, and he did not take it. What a way to lose!!

Re: Copa Telmex 2009 !

it happens sometimes, remember roger serving 6-5 30-0 in TMC in 2005, and david won that match 7-6; no one say a word about roger choking, and we gave all the credit to david; lets give credit to monaco, he played a magnificent match today.
