Re: Madrid R2: Malisse def. Lu 6-2 6-2
Those talking about Lu returning to his old form: Did you even see the match yesterday??? Lu wasn't good at all then, as Fiasco truly has become that bad. Lu's last four matches are a 6-1, 6-0 loss to Youzhny, a 6-0, 6-4 loss to world #411 Ervin Elaskovic in qualifying (who subsequently lost in straights to Gerard Granollers), a straight sets win over Fiasco, and a 6-2, 6-2 loss to Malisse.
Beginning to see the picture? Fiasco has really fallen that low. Lu has been atrocious all of 2011, and has won ATP level match on clay in his entire career (Fiasco). Fiasco was simply beyond awful for a "top 20" player yesterday, with the worst errors and body language that I've ever seen for a top 20 player.
Today's result wasn't a shock at all (one clay mug just being substantially better than a player in atrocious form who is beyond awful on clay), and Fernando Fiasco should be ashamed of himself.
