Highlight was Lurch match point down serving an underarm side spinning serve to save it.

Fat Albert impressing Costa who was in the crowd.

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".

Don´t fogert to say that Hanescu served underarm at 1-6 in the TB.
Hanescu wasn´t clicking the first serve while Montañes was tryng to be more aggressive.

Hanescu lost this year 5th match after wasting MP (!), Montanes won 3rd after saving MP. According to my stats, Montanes has never lost a match having MP, it can be a record given the number of tournaments he has played but he has very low ratio of tight matches.

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

Montanes is playing really well nowadays. He is a mental giant on match points. Has saved quite a few this year. Good win Albert. Really raising his ranking

VAMOS!

Saw the third set and Albert was hanging in there, although Hanescu was better player. If you look at his footwork, it's terrible. But his fighting spirit sealed the deal. Good chance he comes against a LL, and can actually win.

Hanescu is a disgrace, he should be suspended for that underarm serve.
