Cañas defeats Gonzalez: 7-6(6), 7-5

Craptastic performance by Gonzalez. Should have won in two, but lost in two instead. :retard:

...4 SP wasted by González in the first set... served for the second, and was broken again. Embarrasing performance... congrats to Willy!

Fix the score 7-6(6), before Voo has a heart attack.
Really entertaining match, Gonzo was looking like the better player the whole first set, Canas is just a brilliant fighter.

Tim Henman--Gael Monfils--James Blake--Donald Young--Rafael Nadal--Jo-Wilfried Tsonga--John Isner--Janko Tipsarevic--Richard Gasquet.

Edited. As for the match - yeah, his slice was pathetic, but Cañas couldnät do much with it most of the time. He had numerous occasions to win both sets.

Re: Cañas defeats Gonzalez: 7-6(6), 7-5

In no way should he have won in 2. He shouldn't have won it at all. I don't care how many amazing winners from impossible positions he hit. Those don't matter. Canas didn't need to do any of that.

Ya gotta hand it to Gonzalez, no one melts down quite like he does. The whole match I was just waiting for the wheels to fall off, because they always do with him. Loses his fool head.

Never miss an opportunity to make others happy, even if you have to leave them alone in order to do it.

Gonzo needs to get rid of Larry and just play make or break tennis like the good ol' days.

So let me get this straight - he wasn't in a position to win in straights, yet this was a meltdown? Yeah, makes perfect sense to me too.

One match where the stats don't seem to tell the whole story. Willy played an incredibly clean match...with more aces and winners to unforced errors. Gonzo seemed ahead the whole time, and lost almost every big point.

Thanks for the gutsy run, Phillies!!! World Series Champs...2010!!!
