disgraceful for the game for montanes to advance this far.
IW organziers need to be shot for making this into a clay court event.

Funny H2H between these two. They've met only once before, which was on clay and Mello won with the same scoreline.

LIKE: Stepanek, Youzhny, Stakhovsky, Raonic, Pouille || HATE: Nadal, Almagro, Monfils, Troicki, Simon, Tipsarevic

Good and expected one Albert. Now give Tsonga a hell of a time!

Funny that he, and Almagro as well, is performing better on HC than on clay so far this year.

Montanes was never a mug in fast surfaces. He's not an all-rounder, that's obvious, but he's no Di Mauro either.

Albert has been really lucky with his draws in big tourneys. Good on him for continuing to capitalize on them.

Never know what to expect with Montanes on hard - so often he turns up with zero expectations, phones in a performance, flight out the next day already booked, etc. He can produce reasonable stuff on slow hard though, as he did in Auckland vs Isner, or here last year vs Murray (and Mello is no mug lately, especially on hard).

IW is not a fast surface.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

I used "fast surfaces" with the meaning of "outside clay".

But a very big one as Marcelo Melo hardly plays single matches at all.

matchwise, pity that Ricardo lost that closely.

Vamos Nando! Come on Andy! A portuguese Vamos to André Sá e Marcelo Melo! Vamos Gastão!Auf geht's Dustin! Vamos ChristianLindell!Vamos David! Pojd Tomáš! Davai Dolgo!
