29 out of 32 breakpoints faced combined were not converted , on clay it must be a new world record . Not even Karlovic would be able to pull this off , way to go champs !

12 break points and 12 saved

I'm so happy for Pippo, great to get a ATP win, and in front of the home fans. I think he can beat Benneteau too.

The bpfest was hilarious, some games were endless deuce/ad/deuce battles - some of Nadal's entire matches at Monte Carlo were shorter than those games.

How many 2 set matches with no tiebreaks have been longer than this? Not many I would imagine

Paradorn Srichaphan
Kei Nishikori, Donald Young, Somdev Devvarman, Dustin Brown, Steve Johnson, Yannick Maden
Robert Farah, Clement Reix, Alexander Dolgopolov, Nathan Thompson

Longer match than the shortest five-setters

Luczak got robbed in the first game of the second set, when he hit a clear ace on game point (he got broken in the end)
I'm sure this tournament will do everything they can to have a Federer vs Volandri match in the 3rd round...

those BPs stats are literally fantastic.

Say what you want, but this match was enjoyable with some good rallies and not too many errors. Both players were looking for winners and some shots were amazing.

I know they are mugs, but it was not wasted two hours.

Value for money.

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".
