Cincy R2: Nico Lapentti d. David Ferrer 7-6(2) 3-6 6-3

Amazing, just amazing Nico

Both players were solid from the baseline, but Nico's variation, specially his slice, were decisive for this win. Very mentally tiresome match for both. Nico handled a bad finish of second set and a couple of break points in the start of the third set to pull this win off.

8/11 break points saved by Nico abd 3/6 break point conversions, in almost 2h25min of match.

Vamos Nico, you can go even further this week

VAMOS NICO, A GANAR!!!

2 really good victories out of nowhere for Nico.


Great to see him getting some results, it's always refreshing to see a player with a good tactical sense of the game pick up wins.

Pics isn't having his best part of career lately...

Congrats to Lapentti.

Nico
Pics is one of the fittest players on the tour but has lost this year two long matches against veterans (Hyung-Taik & Lapentti).

It had exactly the outcome I had in my mind when Nico was fighting in the 3*-3 game in the second set. "He will win it, but only in three sets."

Vamos Nando! Come on Andy! A portuguese Vamos to André Sá e Marcelo Melo! Vamos Gastão!Auf geht's Dustin! Vamos ChristianLindell!Vamos David! Pojd Tomáš! Davai Dolgo!

Re: Lapentti defeats Ferrer 7-6(2) 3-6 6-3

Ferrer needs to be at 110% physically to win matches on hard, like he was last year
I dont think he'll repeat last year's results at USO, Tokyo and TMC

Great stuff Lapentti, this was a short match for him, this man isn't afraid of the slice backhand or changing the pace.

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".

I wouldn't say it was out of nowhere. I have seen some of Nico's matches this year and he was showing a great game. He could had already beaten Ferrer in Barcelona in April, it was a tight match. He surely can beat almost every player in the circuit.

Isn't Lapentti openly gay?

Ferrer wayyyy overrated, he doesn't belong in the top 10 anymore.

Amazing. Even if Ferrer is not in top form, it was hard to see this coming.
