Shanghai R1: F.Mayer def. Petzschner (?!) 6-3 6-2 (?!?!!)

I mean - WTF?

Florian is a pathetic clayish retriever and Petz should be an agressive inform for the last couple of years high level player....

What went wrong? is it still this neck injury or is it a German affair

Petzs looks like he's cracked under the pressure of defending his Vienna points, which fell off today, and he dropped 40ish ranking spots.

Nasty series of meltdowns too: wins first set vs Berdy at Cinci then collapses in the tiebreak and loses, ditto vs Gil in New Haven, then worst of all after being 2-0 up against JCF at the US Open. Then completely collapse after taking the first set against Gasquet in Metz, and since then he's been flat out appalling, not even getting in the place to meltdown.

I guess, like Safin, for mentally dodgy players these sort of meltdowns become self-perpetuating.

you are underrating Mayer big latso.

He is by far better baseliner and he used to school Petzsch when they were young.
And he can handle the slice well..is suited on the conditions better and matchfit as he won 2 matches in qualys before this one.
Therefore he was the favourite to win this one without a shadow of doubt

Mayer will now be higher ranked next week too (1point and 1 spot behind atm!). Just 3 months back Petz was 100 places higher......

btw its pretty funny how most people want to make believe that mayer is a challenger mug while petzsche is a top50 player
mayer was ranked 33 aged 21, he was ranked inside the top 100 until he had this wrist injury last year

i won't quote your "pure bullshit" post coz it's simply pathetic but if u knew a bit about this sport you would know that Mayer's best ranking ever was 33rd after a lucky quarter final in Wimby in 2004, winning a couple of clay mugs on the way.
Petzs is 36th right now... so a lot higher ranked is just blabla

Opening odds on Pinna were 1.75 for Petz, which already was a bit high but related to his neck injury most probably.

Then the odds for Mayer went down to 1.30 or lower i don't remember exactly.

This is based on the qualities of Florian Mayer? I saw him in Sofia few months ago - the most unexciting player ever. Just defending, nothing at all.
Lost to Minar who had the physical shape of Pavarotti back then.....

Qualies? he won 2 Asian mugs in a row. Have you ever heard of competitive asian players except Lu and Nishikori? It wasn't them...

Grow up and comment based on some facts not just blabla

Good to see Flo at a TMS again.

Petzschner has had serious mental problems ever since he went two sets up against Ferrero at the USO.

Petz went from 1.75 opening to 2.50 at betfair just before the match, that's definitely an injury.
