I was almost right (I expected three sets win)... but still win. Nando The way isn't too hard to Rafa in R4.

Never ever give up

Completely forgot about this match

Checked the scoreboard when the fourth set started, then something else must have grabbed my attention.

Nice to see Fernando didn't choke this one away, now make a good run please!

Off to the circus Monaco lead a break in the 4th *4-3 and then loses 3 games in a row at the end.

Monaco needed to be more reactive than usual only 15m behind the baseline.

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".

Predictable result. Monaco is just as bad mentally as Nando but he game is nowhere near as good.

Monaco looked more afraid of losing than willing to win. Verdasco did what he had to do in the end, while Pico made no adjustments.

Which is funny because until today, their H2H was 6-2 in Pico's favor

Fiasco was trying to do a Mugro/Berdy and lose from 2-0, but Monaco wouldn't let him.

First two sets FV was really striking it nicely though.

Nice win for Nando in a tricky encounter.

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Fernando Verdasco

Nando was really trying to blow it but held on. Should be another tough one with Malisse

Too bad for Nando he has another pain in the arse opponent in Malisse. Should be an awesome block buster match-up. But given that Malisse makes sloppy UE, I expect Verdasco to take him in 4 tight ones.

Tabasco missed a golden opportunity to surpass his Rome Masters work of art.

I'm disappointed in him. Shame.
