Miami R1 : Grosjean def. Kuerten 6-1, 7-5

Good second set for Guga but still nothing too encouraging. He had a point for 6-5 in the second but was broken and Seb hadn't much trouble serving it out.

Good effort Guga

I thought the score line would be more like 7-5 6-1.

Nice fight in the second set, if only he could hold at 5-5, he had some game points Anyway now there are only clay tourneys left for him...

At least Guga made things competitive in the 2nd set, after only winning 9 points out of 35 in the opening set. He was leading 4-3* 40-0 in the 2nd set, but unfortunately Seb won the next 5 points to hold serve, and broke in that tight 11th game. Still I'm pleased with Guga's effort.

It looks like he did a pretty good job in the second set, it's a shame he wasn't able to win it but at least it was a nice way to end the match.

Maybe if he draws some mug WC in the 1st round of that challenger he's going to play.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! So sad to see Guga end it all like this. I remember that year he destroyed everyone including Sampras at the EOY Masters.

Grosjean nowadays is almost that.

I'd rather wait those extra 5 seconds seeing those boobies bounce than watching some fatass kid burn away his bigmac meal.

I don't know, call me old fashioned but I like women
