Served great though. 14 aces in a three set match is huge for Nando.

Keep it going.

I actually thought this was quite a good match for awhile. Lu played great in the tb and looked to carry the momentum into the third. Verdasco saved 15-40 in the first game of the third with big serves and the rest is history. But it seemed like there was a 5 game period where every point ended on a winner.

Did Sampras really say Verdasco could win a major? Really?

Didn't get a change to see the match but I'm pleasantly surprised that Rendy was able to take it to 3 sets.
Does anyone know Nando's winners/UEs?

If he's talking about a mathematical possibility then it's true, he "could" win a major.

Realistically, it's a freaking joke.

Pete was just being nice me thinks.

I'm not saying I believe that he will win a major, but Pete made quite a bold statement. Being nice is saying, "Verdasco's a great player" or something like that, not what Pete said.
