Stani should have won this in 2 sets, he had the break in the 1st set, but was broken at 4-3, then LaLo took the TB.

Congrats Stani he finished off what Koubek should have done yesterday.

LaLo can catch a flight and still make it out on the town in Madrid and he should do well there.

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

Congrats to Wawrinka. That was a hard fought match. There really wasn't much of anything separating the two of them (although those 6 double faults from Lopez to Wawrinka's 2 definitely affected the match). When Lopez got broken early in the 1st set, I thought it might be an easy 2 set victory for Wawrinka. Credit to Lopez for breaking back later and pushing to a tiebreak that he won. They both played better in the 2nd set, but Wawrinka broke early and Feli couldn't get it back. Same with the 3rd set, really.

Congrats to Lopez on another good run. QF's in Tokyo, QF's in Vienna. That's great for anyone, let alone Feli. He got a WC for Madrid, and he might be able to do something there. Either way, he could finish the year in the top 40, maybe top 35, which would be fantastic for him. Give Albert Costa a raise, Feli!

Wawa has won all matches this week after trailing 0-1 in sets.

Impressive.

Makes me wonder: Was there any player that won an ATP tournament, having lost the 1st set in all rounds?

that's no better than where Lopez should be, IMO

didn't he used to be seeded in the Grand Slams a few years ago?


good work by Stan, disappointing loss tho for Lopez. I had him in this one, more heart than head. Smart money was on Stan, but still a toss-up for the most part.

Those are the key words there. They mean shit now. Things can change drastically in tennis in a matter of months, let alone years. Lopez didn't fall into the depths of hell overnight, and he's not getting back overnight. He's had to work for it.

As to where he should be ranked... Who's to say? He should be ranked wherever he is ranked, IMO. Most of the time in tennis, what you put into it is equal to what you get out of it.

Good to see Fed's best mate take down Rafa's best mate.

GSM Federer over Nadal again.

No, not so much actually. Do you think Safin SHOULD be ranked 30th (maybe lower now), do you think he SHOULD lose to Stan 3, 3, and 3, do you think he SHOULD lose plenty of other dreadful matches he's lost, do you think he SHOULD be 2-10 lifetime against Santoro?

No.

But he is.

there are surely hundreds of other analogies such as this, but I assume you get the point.

And I never said Lopez should be ranked any higher. I think that's about where he should be ranked. I'm saying being ranked around 40 is nothing to jump for joy about, not for Lopez, no way.

Well we're never going to agree on any of that. So it ends here.
