RG R1: Falla destroys Starace 7-6 6-1 6-1



Falla almost lost to Reischick in the qualies being down 1-4* 0-30 in the decider and now he gets in the MD and "feeds" Starace with double breadstick who's been playing pretty well in the last period

RG R1: Falla def Starace 7-6 6-1 6-1

Lesson

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".

Starace doesn't belong in the top 50.

Starace has a terrible record in Grand Slams.

Friend was at the match. Falla toyed with him with angles and dropshots.

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".

Re: RG R1: Falla def Starace 7-6 6-1 6-1

I'm not surprised Falla won, but this scoreline is amazing. 6-1 6-1 final two sets. When Falla decides to turn up and put together a good performance, he's got a lot of talent and really can do a lot of things with the ball. He also didn't get broken in the match, which is a great feat. These balls and the court speed really suit Falla's game. Congrats to him on this victory.

Haha not really expected but Starace isn't a friend of the slams plus can get upset easily, Falla plays nice tennis, good to see him through.

philosofcarf told me there was a strange odd movement, it was probably the biggest fix ever.

Uhm? Odds were about 1.22 - 4.00, I don't think this has been a fix.. every person on this planet should learn that when it comes to Italian tennis players you have to expect results like this in every single match they play

GS type of a player this Falla. He just hibernates in-between.
