Rome R2 : Juan Monaco def Andy Murray 1-6 6-3 7-5

This was a humourous match. Pico couldn't find a hooker in a brothel in the 1st set, let alone his game.

Monaco had lots of problem consolidating on breaks lead *4-2 in the 3rd and lost it to love. In the 11th game Murray got footfaulted on the first point.

Some quality dropshots from Monaco, the right result in the end.

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".

Rome: Monaco overcomes Murray 1-6 6-3 7-5

From what I saw, Murray was pretty awful. Very passive. Then when he tried to turn his game on in the end, he missed the crucial shots.

Nice result for Monaco.

What a stark contrast, first watching Tsonga and Gasquet ripping the ball then watching these guys pushing it.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

at those that said that Muzza is a top contender on clay... first semi-decent claycourter he faced, and he's out.

I thought Monaco would lose after he gifted the break for 4-4... Superb play in those last 2 games, those dropshots Awesome result

Lobo's face while watching that match was priceless, glad he was able to hold serve when it counted.

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".

looked to be some awful ball tosses during that last service game for monaco, i'm disappointed but monaco thoroughly deserved this, especially after those flawless drop shots in that final game (didn't get to see a lot of the match)

@ journalist people who thought he was better than Djokovic


Murray was all kinds of suck, although a very good first set. I think he might be having some sort of groin injury.

Monaco probably is going to challenge Nadal in the "taking-too-long-between-points" department.

Mikey, I guess murray is in deep shit right now. He should work more on his physical conditioning. I sensed he could die out there.
