Monte Carlo 2009

David is in the second quarter of the draw, which looks like this:

[4] MURRAY, Andy GBR vs BYE
HANESCU, Victor ROU vs QUALIFIER
QUALIFIER vs BERDYCH, Tomas CZE
QUALIFIER vs [14] CILIC, Marin CRO
[12] NALBANDIAN, David ARG vs MATHIEU, Paul-Henri FRA
ACASUSO, Jose ARG vs GRANOLLERS, Marcel ESP
KARLOVIC, Ivo CRO vs SERRA, Florent FRA
BYE vs [8] DAVYDENKO, Nikolay RUS

Tough draw, right from the start as these smaller draw Masters events tend to be. David does have a 3-0 head-to-head record over Mathieu, but I just never feel like I know what's going to happen particularly at the start of tournaments.

But right now, I'm just really hoping that the match doesn't get scheduled on the Sunday, with no TV coverage (but I have a bad feeling it will be).

Re: Monte Carlo 2009

3-1* Groundies are ok, but serves are still worse than shit.

Re: Monte Carlo 2009

Serving at 44% and up two service breaks.....only David can do that.

This should have been a bagel set.

Re: Monte Carlo 2009

Back to shit serving and once again failed to serve for the set. Someone can make a fortune betting when he is about to close on anything.

6-4 finally, with 3 DFs. I am such a masochist for watching this guy.
