RG R1: Zemlja def Monaco 7-6 (6) 3-6 7-5 6-3

Big win for the Slovene.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

Once again, playing at that ARAG event is the absolute kiss of death, as Monaco looked apathetic from the start. That said, I was really impressed by Grega's big hitting for four sets against a seeded player.

Grega was very aggressive and after some of the huge chokes he has had, great for him to get the win.

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".

this is what happens when you win a tournament before a slam. gasquet made the same mistake.

He can get the surgery done now.

Well done to Zemlja. Never heard of him until today.

Re: RG R1: Zemlja def Monaco 7-6 (6) 3-6 7-5 6-3

Juan looked very very flat today and Grega took advantage. Hit the ball hard and went after his shots.

With that said, Grega won 3-1 in sets and only won 4 more points. That shows Juan had chances and could have definitely won this match, but didn't take advantage. Even against players out of the top 100 they will make you pay for that.

Grega 3/7 break points
Juan 2/17 break points

That was the difference in the match.
