Enjoyable to watch, clean power shots from both players of both wings. Kohli looked frustrated in the 3rd and 4th set after medical timeout. He was getting more and more impatient but Viktor stayed cool headed and took advantage of the situation. If he plays like he does recently he will give Rafa solid run for his money.

Another weak match from Kohlschreiber. Not long ago someone called him one of the mentally toughest players outside the top 20. I think it was Voo de Mar.

Thanks for a little bit of info on the match, from the scoreboard it's always hard to know how things are really going.

Hopefully he can be a little more challenging this time than last All I'm hoping for is that he gives Rafa a good fight

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

Nope. Not going to happen. Nadal will win in straight sets. Nadal plays up to the level of the competition really. If you play great, Nadal plays greater. If you play out of this world, Nadal still finds a way to beat you silly. Only Novak and David can even touch Nadal (and beating Nadal still will be a stretch).

It's way wrong, though.

Kohlschreiber is one of the weakest-minded nutcases of the ATP tour.

So who isn't in your opinion?

I base my opinion on scorelines from his matches, Kohli has played 99 ATP tournaments and hasn't lost a match wasting match point (has won 4 matches saving match points) - great achievement comparing to other players. I know his results from Challengers and Futures very well, it's tough to say that he had been choking there. The guy won fifth sets: 17-15 at Roland Garros (the longest 5th set in Paris in terms of games in history) and 8-6 in Melbourne (against experienced Roddick who saved there a few match points with aces what would have been very frustraiting and leads to Kohli's loss). Has won a few times 7-6 7-6 matches including (14-12, 8-6) over Sexy Won a set against Starace from 1:5 down.
The only scar in his mental department so far is this year's 4th round in Melbourne where he wasted 11 setpoints against Nieminen, nota bene very strong mentally player as well.

This is the guy who can't string two wins in a row.

Remember the AO? Beat Roddick and then lost to Nieminen after wasting an infinite number of chances...

Can't win any match being the favorite.

Lost to Kudryavtsev, Bolelli, Zverev this year, always as the favorite.

Last year lost to Calleri in Metz. Hrbaty in Montreal... Serra in Wimbledon. That's not being mentally strong.
