Toronto 1r: (11) Verdasco def. Bellucci 16 63 62

Disgusting match. Glad for the victory, though.

Some perks:
- I like that Verdasco is mixing up his groundstrokes more and not bashing the shit out of each forehand he hits
- he IS the most beautiful man on tour now
- Bellucci was just bad enough to let Fernando win

Both of them talked quite a bit, I noticed. Verdasco in particular looked like he hit something into the crowd at one point, and then tried to laugh it off and apologize, but got booed. Anyone know what happened there?

Sampras, Agassi, Nalbandian, Santoro, Verdasco.

After the match, Verdasco took off his shirt to give to the crowd as he signed autographs One of the commentators said, "Wow, I can't really concentrate with his shirt off... can't remember what I wanted to say."

That was Doug Adler, he's awesome

ChrisDoesDallas, why was it a disgusting match? I thought Verdasco hit some great shots and had good energy considering how tired and out of sorts he had to have been and how easy it would've been to throw in the towel after losing the first...

The shirtless autograph session cracked me up. We get it Fernando, you're too sexy for your shirt. If I had abs like that I'd probably take my shirt off every chance I got too

Belucci did well but really it was a matter of Verdasco getting his teeth into the match

That American commentator is hopeless. He makes the most awkward, useless discussion. Namely, when he was talking about how players in the '50s to '70s preferred style over blah blah no one cares.

Something Adler...

Sampras, Agassi, Nalbandian, Santoro, Verdasco.

What I've always said about Bellucci being a mug has been confirmed here: can't volley, too long swing on the forehand side, can't defend. Also his serve need some work.

Should have won this match, though.

Glad he won this! I think he left his serve in Umag Hope he finds it or Soderling will eat him alive for sure

The shirtless signing was very nice indeed *shallow moment*

Matches between 2 lefties
Doug Adler! I knew I got his last name.

Both were really uncomfortable playing each other, couldn't play their games. The crowd was dead, and both seemed like they'd rather be anywhere than on the court. The stats afterward said there were like 70+ errors from both...pretty ridiculous. But yeah, Fernando played well in parts.

I just hope Fernando defends his 3R pts here.

Sampras, Agassi, Nalbandian, Santoro, Verdasco.

I watched the 3rd set and Fernando played wonderful tennis considering he must be jet lagged coming and tired coming from Umag. All credit to him he kept his head and won. Bellucci has nothing to be ashamed of, he was unlucky to meet Fernando in form. Vamos FernandO

MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY!!

Does he do that all the time? I may have to make a special poster for him when I go to Miami next year.
