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.

nothing spectacular here

chela was the better player during most of the first set, then self imploded and that might've cost him the match.

mugro could win this tournament if kohli beats melzer.

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

and yes Chela is a hard court mug, his QF in NY or whatever else he reached doesn't change this, just a positive side effect for him from courts slowing down and facing mug opponents

would be shocking if Mugro takes a set from Melzer

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.

Predictable result. It was a good week for Juan though

Melzer shouldn`t find many troubles to beat the Spaniard and win in home soil (if he doesn`t do it on his pants of course )
