WTF is wrong?
Chela is not a claycourt specialist like so many people like to say, he's a great hardcourt player too
. Reached SF here few years back.
And Mugro reaching quarters with this kind of draw isn't a miracle.
I understand you are a fan and respect your dedication, but this statement is too far. He's a decent HC player for a clay courter, but he is a 100% clay courter.
The match was predictably up and down. Quite a lot of errors from both, but some nice hard hitting also. JIC served poorly in the third set and Mucho served well, that was the main difference. Mucho is just the better player, and that showed itself in the third set. Good tournament for Nicolas taking advantage of the easy draw to the SF, but he'll need to raise his level to defeat Melzer.
