Estoril Final : Montañes def Blake 5-7 7-6(6) 6-0

Good to see the claycourter win over the ballbasher and congrats to Albert on winning his second title.

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".

Montañes saved two match points when serving at 5-7 4*-5, 15-40.

Congrats Albert!

Re: Estoril Final : Montañes def Blake 5-7 7-6(6) 6-0

I haven't watched the match, but let me guess:

1) James missed to close it in 2

2) in the 3rd set he was dued (because Albert is in agood form and Albert feels himself in the 2 hours + matches like a fish in the water)

3) James played 2 sets in 1/2 today so when the match approached 3rd set it was a race aginst time for James

Spain is full of lucky players Montanes should of lost earlier this week and Blake is expected to lose these matches since hes a choker.

Right on the dot, I guess. Blake had 2 match points in the 2nd, and then he just tired in the 3rd. Plus Montanes is in good form.

Pathetic Blake strikes back His returns on both matchpoints after Montanes' 2n serves were embarassing It's almost unreal how many matches Blake lost after wasting match points.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
