Montanes has to be one of the dumbest players in history. Fog one of the most unsporting idiots.

RG R4: "The Fog" Fognini def. Montañes 4-6 6-4 3-6 6-3 11-9

Entertaining match from these smaller guys, this was the real RG final. Montañes usual steady self with solid strokes and the Fog at times was more pro active, hit some fine dropshots.

Montañes served for it at *5-3 but was tight as a drum. At 15-30 *6-7 Fog gets an injury timeout for cramps. The crowd gave it to him after that, though mostly they were on his side during the match

Getting double footfaulted only Gaudio, Echagarry and the Fog can do this. Fog saving match points with dropshots and clean FH winners.

Too bad for Fat Albert had heaps of chances to take it.

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".

Extraordinary 5th set. Montanes was up 5-2 and then lost his brain.

Re: RG R16 FogGOAT foot faults Monty 4-6 6-4 3-6 6-3 11-9



Close contested match for 4.5 sets. Pure theatrics after that MTO. Funniest match in a while.

Fog wasn't even attempting to move after 7-7, and Monty was still hitting straight to him setting up these shots for Fog to blast off insane winners. Comical serving, at least 12 foot faults, no attempts to move his feet at all. etc etc.

Absolute epic. A giant among men - somehow my pre-tournament Fog QF prediction came through...

| Wins over 3+ of the Top 4. Players to reach all slam QFs+ in history. Hawkeye/Line Calls. QFs+ at Slams & Masters, but never Top 20.
Haas / The Fog / Tsonga / Gojowczyk / Brown / Nole / Mahut / Sijsling / Dolgo / Cuevas / Fed / Stan / Baker / Alund / Kei / Tursunov / Copil / Bolelli / Brands / Benneteau / Steps / Stakh / PHM
Rafter / Edberg / Henman / Stich / Safin / Gambill / Grosjean / Malisse / Gonzo / Llodra / Santoro / Agassi / Schalken / Nováček / Rosewall / H-T Lee / Kuerten / Boetsch / Pavel / Sundström / Björkman / Scud / El Aynaoui / Arazi / Calleri / Sampras / Nalbandian / Mosquito / Srichaphan / Pioline
