Great match? You are kidding right?

Misty, it was 12 breaks of serve.

48 Unforced errors from Nalbandian apparently.

not a good 3rd set but Nalby eventually held it together when serving for it, finishes with an ace

Wow that was horrific...

Good tourney from Gilles, tough matchup. Nalbandian played well in patches and when he did, he was able to overpower Simon.

What a boring player this Simon, pushing the ball all the time. Good win Nalby.

Re: Washington QF: Nalbandian def. Simon 3-6 6-2 6-3

When Simon started pushing he started losing. Ridiculous Gilles. When he started hitting the ball like he's capable of he would get on a roll. When he broke back in the 3rd it's what he did and when he got up 6-3, *1-0 he was very aggresive. He does this pushing little girl tennis and he fails.

Definitely not a horrible match. David brainfarted at the start and near the end of the third, but other than that it was really fun to watch.

Especially considering both of these players' lack of matchplay.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Re: Washington QF: Nalbandian def. Simon 3-6 6-2 6-3

This was baseline at its absolute worst. Can't remember the last time I saw such a terrible match between two quality players - perhaps Chakvetadze vs. Kuznetsova USO '07 SF, and that was WTA.

I mean, hot mess.

Nevertheless, first tour semifinal for Nalbandian since February 2009.
