Hamburg R2 : Navarro def. Robredo 7-5 7-6 (2)

Great result for the serve/volleyer.

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".

Vamos. Excellent result. Choked when serving for it at 5-4, but that tiebreak looks decisive.

Robredo always has a problem against the net rushers.

Yes, surprised he held on after not serving out the match, but good for Ivan and also never a bad day when Boredo loses.

He doesn't like the net rushers too much who take away his time.

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

Good thing Ivan won despite not managing to serve it out at 5-4. The bottom half draw is quite open as Davydenko hasn't exactly hit his groove lately. Monaco might go deep.

Can somebody tell me what happened to Navarro-Pastor? Why the change?

Well done Ivan! Really love to see him play. His unique style is great to watch.

Boredo already played awful last week in that semi against Monaco. Normally he loves these non master series clay events. Really poor result!

He dropped the Pastor. Spanish and Portuguese have two surnames. Just like Rafael Nadal Parera.

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".

He didn't drop the Pastor, it's just the second surname isn't normally used, it's sort of like the middle name in English speaking countries. Funny that it's used a lot in women, I take it cause you ignorant foreigners think it's the married and maiden name.

Well if he doesn't use the Pastor, like he did for the 10 years on the tour, then he dropped it from usage on the ATP.

Just like Marcel Granollers-Pujol, the Pujol isn't used now and recently Daniel Gimeno isn't using the Traver.

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".

but is it them using it or just the ATP and press? I mean officially they must state their full name, but so does Nadal and no one calls him Nadal Parera.

Gimeno maybe doesn't want to be related to Andrés.

If they didn't agree to it, then it would like Ramirez-Hidalgo.
