Another myth and why. There are 4 weeks at the start of the year to play on hardcourts, then after that a player could easily not play on clay until after Miami, as is there choice.

After RG, it's just as easy not to play on clay, it's something that Hewitt, Henman, Roddick, T.Johansson, PimPim and Agassi have managed to do quite successfully, so don't give me this line.

Then for 2 weeks after the US Open, there aren't clay events, but it's just as easy not to play on clay, but hey we can't have that, as it's only these players benefitting.

Too much tennis on hardcourts already has led to an increase in injuries, but that's probably another myth.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1
