Good stuff. Verdasco is definitely not the real deal.

Smart stuff from Gonzo creating that incident and getting the future of tennis out of balance completely.

verdasco failed to take the initiative in the 3rd set, and the result was never in doubt.

None of those AO promises ever live up to expectations.

He should have lost in straights. The guy is in a serious lack of skills in a strategy and tactical department.

Simon Reed... What happened? The World No. 1 Verdasco lost to Fernando "Maniac" Gonzalez? On clay? 7 aces to None? What happened? Verdasco is Baghdatis 2.0

Re: Barcelona QF: Gonzalez def. Verdasco 6-3 4-6 6-4

Lazy from Verdasco. Started like he couldn't be bothered, just raised his level to nick the 2nd, then got lazy again at the beginning of the 3rd, when Gonzo was really begging him to break. Failed twice, then gifted away his own serve with 5 UEs.

Gonzo looked much more motivated the whole way through. At the start he got off to a tasty 4-0 lead, but it also meant he got a little tight at moments as well - he could easily have lost the match at the start of the 3rd because of this, against a more competent opponent.


Idiotic shot choice from Verdasco a lot of the time. He was having great success pummelling the Gonzo backhand, and it eventually broke down pretty badly. Nadal would have relentlessly kept pounding that corner, but Verdasco persisted in mixing it up with midpace balls to the forehand, the ideal setup for Gonzo to hammer. It was one of these that resulted in the decisive break at 3-3 in the final set.
