Brisbane: Santi defeats Benji 6/3 6/4

This guy has nerves of steel. He used both break points and saved 6/6, classy performance.

Awesome start of season for Colombian.

Santi who? Santi Claus defeated Benji the Dog?

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

Giraldo is on his way to a big 2011.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?
LOOK AT ME!
LOOK AT ME, BOY! THESE ARE THE SCARS OF APPEAL MODERATION!
Take a good long stare, you know you want to.
You're not even man enough to look at my face.

Appeal moderation isn't pretty, you have to watch your friends go to dust.
Appeal moderation is always hungry for your soul and sweet emotions.


First and once godly-worhispped appeal moderator.

Well done.

If at first you don't succeed, lower your standards.

Re: Brisbane: Santi defeats Benji 6/3 6/4

The clay season will determine how far he's come.

Juan Martin Del Potro


But he lost 23 times against you.
's right. We have to also throw into the mix. But I do not think it is currently the decisive factor. But he has achieved in my opinion too much. Maybe this is crucial if I move him even closer after major victories. But 14 or 17 Grand Slam titles is a significant difference. At the present time there is no question that he must be the greater player than me.

David Nalbandian

Re: Brisbane: Santi defeats Benji 6/3 6/4

This is a great victory for Giraldo against a player who is better than him on this kind of courts and arrived to 2nd round with a stunning victory like the one over Verdasco.

This is his 2nd straight stunning victory as he defeated Simon in the 1st round. Definitely I`m looking forward of what he can produce against Anderson.
