RG R2 : Maxi Gonzalez def. Seppi 7-6(8) 6-3 6-3

Another good win for Maxi and the Tandil posse.

Seppi had a ridiculous break point conversion rate something like 2/18, therefore he deserved to lose on that alone.

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".

Seppi has already forgotten the meaning, let alone the feeling of being in form

Yup, Seppi was a muppet on bps. Most of his game was just slightly off, and MaxiGonzo was pretty impressive.

Actually I was being kind to Seppi it was 2 from 19 break points.

Best Slam performance for Maxi, hope he can put in a solid showing against Boredo.

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".

That is terrible.

Hey AJ did you see Don Tiriac in the stands watching the Fed-Chucho match? He keeps talking on the phone during play.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

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).

I think the Maxi doing the Zabaleta short tug before the serve, must have put him off. If you get that many chances in a match, especially on Maxi's serve, and not getting it done, then deserves nothing.

Almost as bad as Horna not getting a bp against Cipolla. Tiriac the mafia don, saw him there as well.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".

Awesome win for Maximo, especially showing some clutch play down break points

Mafia Tiriac at the Fed match, no doubt running the betting markets while Chucho does what he does.

Tiriac has designs for Roger

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Good win and excellent tournament for Maxi, good luck now against Robredo. Seppi just confirms his crap form.

Great performance here for Maximo, who has enough talent on clay to reach the R4 with a good draw. I think he can really trouble Robred too.

I hate Robredo's draw in GS, he always gets shit easy opponents before facing a top player in qf/ 4th round and lose in straight sets.

That pretty much sums up his career.
