MC QF: Verdasco def Montanes, 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-0

Fernando was up 5-1 and had three match points in the second set and then choked it away

Got it in the end though and he's made his first ever Masters semifinal.

Nice job Nando.

Montanes, just 6 points in 3rd set.

One of the craziest matches I have ever seen!

But YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!! Nando It's been too long! Far too long!

As for Montanes, I've always had a lot of respect for him, but now I have a whole lot more

Honestly, I think the insane comeback drained everything both mentally and physically from Montanes. He really had nothing left in the third set.

Re: MC QF: Verdasco def Montanes, 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-0

Please don't repeat that clown second set vs Djokovic. He's got a decent shot, but he needs to make sure he hits no double faults and keep his ground game stable and not hit such errant mistakes as he did in the 2nd set.

Vamos Nando! Inching his way back inside the top 10 where he belongs.

Re: MC QF: Verdasco def Montanes, 6-3, 6-7(4), 6-0

Verdasco was up:
6-3 *5-1 40-30
6-3 *5-1 ad-40
6-3 5-2* 40-30

Still all I care about is that he won

Nando needed 10 MS quarterfinals to get the first semifinal Montanes is a strong mentally player but with too weak weapons to reach higher goals.

Chokedasco deals quite well with situations of losing sets in which was close to win them.

Montanes did the same thing last year here vs Djoko - whipped first set, opponent loses concentration and a tiebreak in the second, then bagelled in the third.

I think I'm going to have nightmares after watching that. Just bizarre.

I must say the way Montanes saved those 3 MP's was pretty unreal, so talented as well, BH is amazing and FH isn't bad when on as well

In the last 2.5 years has won 6 matches after losing a set in which was a point or two from winning the match.
