Estoril QF : Montañes def Simon 5-7 6-4 7-6(4)

Great stuff Albert, good for the game this result.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

No, it's not Gilles still caught between his old game and his new game, as if he read GM too often and didn't want to be labeled "pusher" anymore, goes for his shots way too early for his standards for a few months now, and just has too many ideas at the moment, which makes his basic game suffer. But he'll resurrect his tennis sooner than later.

Simon has turned from mental-giant into mental midget lately. Montanes is boring but definitely he isn't a choker. I don't know a single ATP match where he lost after wasting MP, maybe he's a record holder in this department because he has already played more than 150 ATP tournaments.

Expected result on clay...Simon looks like a gimp on this surface.

Re: Estoril QF : Montañes def Simon 5-7 6-4 7-6(4)

Very funny match. The first four times Monty broke Simon, he got broken straight back. Was serving for the set at *5-4, had 5 sp's, got broken then lost the set 7-5. Fought to break in the first set, only to get broken back again. Eventually took it 6-4. Simon 4-1* up in the third, and had one MP on Monty's serve at *5-6 but couldn't get it done. Alot of momentum shifts.

Not a surprising result.
The pushers-counter attackers(Simon,Murray,Hewitt) can't prosper on that surface
