Marat

I swear if he wanted to win he could, but he's just thinking about retiring at the end of the year and doesn't have any motivation

Congrats to Juan though , he probably should have beat Marat, but I am just talking about the season in general

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Barcelona: Monaco beats Marat 6-4, 6-1

Marat was impatient in long rallies but won some nice short rallies.

Juan played his usual patient baseline game (ok level) and hence won.

Re: Barcelona: Monaco beats Marat 6-4, 6-1

Actually it was relatively a competitive first set with Pico being more patient. But once he lost the set Mapat went in "who cares" mode. I can't believe Teledeporte stopped broadcasting few games before the end

Marat is the tennis equivalent of Mickey Rourke. But he's run out of comebacks now.
