The pressure of serving 2nd really got to JCF today. Double-faulted to gift Verdasco the first set and got broken to 15 serving at 4-5 in the second set.

The top 9 seem to be a class above the rest this year. Too strong and consistent, upsets are so rare these days.

JCF lost it in the big points today.
Keep it up Nando, a spot in the WTF is looking more and more likely

Nando really learning how to grind out the results - this points chase for TMC may be good for his progress.

Too bad for JCF because Verdasco is on the the Top 10-12 players he can beat along with Simon, Tsonga, Monfils, Gonzo, and *maybe* Djokovic.

But it's nice to see him back in the Top 20. He has worked hard. Although there is not much he can do to start beating those top 8 or so guys. They are too strong for him and can either dissect his game or hit him off the court and make him look like a WTA player. Hopefully he doesn't lose hope and he keeps winning matches and playing well. He may always get lucky and have the odd win over a player ranked ahead of him next year and make some big semis and finals.
