David just had an epic hold of his serve to make it 4-6, 6-3, 1-0.

He just failed to convert yet another break point. I think he is 2/14 in this match.

Let's go, David!!!

1-1

With those two serving, the guy returning always had the advantage.

Nerves are always shot after a Nalby big match. We just got a long vacation from these kinds of matches. The Troiki and Nadal matches in Miami shot my nerves back to their present levels. I just KNEW Nalby was better than Misha and should win this one, and rust was the bigger danger today. So many easy misses today mixed with brilliant shots. Get ready for the real rollercoaster ride that only Nalby can provide and I just look at it as the Nerves getting in shape by watching his matches. They always get a fantastic work-out and soon one becomes strong.....or maybe numb...not really sure.

Anyway, another masterpiece match by Nalby....first masterpiece of 2010!!!!!

David just survived

I have watched that match...

Lot of not used chances, lot of mistakes...

I lost track of how many times he hit himself in the head or gave the "I can't believe I just did that again" look. But in the end, as in the Gimeno-Traver match in the Copa Telmex, he came through 7-6 in the third. Hope he is in better shape after this match then he was after that one. He looks great now, so I don't think that will be an issue.

Robredo will be tough, but once Nalby cuts down on those shanks and those completely unforced errors (especially on break point), matches like that will be on his racquet. Every match it is getting closer to that period. Fun to watch it unfolding....

They said in general messages: "Last time they played was in Monte Carlo 2008 (and before that, Monte Carlo 2006 ) where Dave beat Tommy 6-1, 6-0. So next match should be a piece of cake."

I hope David will be able to walk and run good tomorrow and will make it easy for us..
I mean will beat Tommy
