Montpellier 2R: Fat Dave megachokes to Simon, loses 6-3 6-7(5) 5-7

Dave

Served for the match twice in the second set.
Led **5-4 in the tb.
Was up a break in the third.

Can't make it to QF in a 250 tournie indoors against a player who has seen much better times.

Nalbo is done

There are no fucking words to describe that second set ending. Just gobsmacked.
This match was insane.

Really HOW did Nalby lose the 2nd set?

Shameful performance. This should have been a 6-3 6-4 victory.

What a fight by Simon. But Nalbandian was playing horribly from 5-4 in the second set. Up till that point Simon wasn't in the match at all.

ALLEZ GILLES! Not really a choke just a tank. Nalby let a no-call on a Simon shot bother him even though he won the point. Many chances for overrated David to win even in 3rd set, when he was up *4-2, 40-30.

Watching Simon play tennis is just great when he's on his form.

Re: Montpellier 2R: Fat Dave megachokes to Simon, loses 6-3 6-7(5) 5-7

I don't know if it was quite a choke, as Simon played really well when behind and came up with some big serves when needed. But David made tons of errors throughout the match, especially the second set and end of the third. Simon just kept the ball in play enough, hit some great counterpunching winners, and made Nalby come up with the plays, and he failed to execute. Remember this is his first tournament in a while, so great play should not have been expected.

Great competing and fight from Simon, thoroughly deserves the victory.

good for the game!!!!!!

simon showed his fighter spirit, and he played his heart out when it got close. really happy for him, he is ending the season way better than he started it.

keep it going simon!

He was serving four time for the match.

Bundy what a fix to give Simon some points in Montpellier.

This match was low quality in general outside of the pretty good first set from Nalbandian. Simon wanted it more and that is what made the difference.

(emphasis mine). Lots of errors when you're ahead and need to close the match = textbook definition of choke in my book.
