Shanghai R2 : Mayer outplays Nalbandian 6-3/6-4

Flo played really strong - there was a huge difference between him and Nalby....

I'm really sure the first title in Bucharest has given him additional confidence

If he keeps playing like that Rafa will have a challenge in Round 3....

Sweet choke by Nalb at the end. 4/5, *0-30, excellent time for a doublefault.

What a great Match and he can serve better, because he only served around 55%. If keeps this great Form up, the upcoming Match could be great against Nadal. And besides of that he defended his Points what brings him close to an Year End Top 20 Finish!

The way GGL is playing, he'll be lucky to get 3 games.

Doubt Mayer's style will bother him much either.

Good to hear. I am scared. If only Nadal could escape Berdych and Murray on the way as well...

Mayer started off really well and kept it solid from there.

Good work!

Florian at his best looks like a freaking genius on court. Too bad being smart and skilled only takes you so far...

Good stuff from what I saw. Seems like Dave was trying to out finesse Flo, but was really hurt by the German's short FH angles.

Excellent performance by funky Flo. Hard to beat when hes playing like this and hitting those first serves in like he did.

Re: Shanghai R2 : Mayer outplays Nalbandian 6-3/6-4

With Nalby not getting around the court too well nowadays, Mayer being the angle master that he is.. this was always a bad match up.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

You won't see prettier game than Flo's on tour nowdays
