Ballbashing marathon at it's best!

Tennis balls were pulverized in this one.

AO R3: Gonzo def. Korolev 6-7 6-3 1-6 6-3 6-4

Hard hitting from both, in the end Gonzo's relative versatility won him the match, hitting nice short slices and changing the pace of shot to frustrate Korolev. Gonzo vs Roddick fourth round!

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

One clown takes out the other and in the process both play gruelling five set mug tennis. Couldn't have asked for anything more from this circus match.

Entertainment, but Gonzo's run ends in his next match.

Re: AO Rd3: Gonzales defeated Korolev 6-7, 6-3, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4

BGT needs to learn how to read tennis scores me thinks.

Anyways, Korolev had 0-40 at 2-2 in the second to really blow the match open. But he let Gonzo get out of that game and was broken immediately afterwords.

Surprising to see Gonzo struggling physically in the fifth. I've never seen him like that.

Best Matches of All Time

Federer def. Sampras, Wimbledon 2001 | Davydenko def. Haas, U.S. Open 2006
Schalken def. Gonzalez, U.S. Open 2002 | Agassi def. Roddick, Cincinnati 2004
Kohlschreiber def. Roddick, Australian Open 2008 | Federer def. Nadal, Wimbledon 2007
Melzer def. Djokovic, Roland Garros 2010 | Sargsian def. Mathieu, U.S. Open 2004
Nalbandian def. Safin, Madrid 2006 | Soderling def. Nadal, Roland Garros 2009
Federer def. Tipsarevic, Australian Open 2008 | Gaudio def. Coria, Roland Garros 2004
Djokovic def. Stepanek, U.S. Open 2007 | Murray def. Gasquet, Wimbledon 2008
+ any five set win for Todd Martin

Yikes. I woke up just as Gonzo broke in the fifth. Last time I've seen him look so physically wiped was in his five setter against Dudi in Israel during DC, but thenhe also played a five setter the day before that in doubles. He ain't a spring chicken anymore.
