Terrible quality of a match, Nalbandian was atrocious in the first set until halfway the second, a genuine UE-machine. It was merely due to Malisse being even a bigger headcase completely losing it near the tail end of the 2nd set (I won't even go into that TB here, where he had the minibreak - or even two of them - and only needed to serve it out for the match
). Malisse should have finished it off right there, but completely lost his composure thereafter, handing Nalbandian an early break in the 3rd.
You might have thought it would be an easy victory for Nalby after that brainfart. Well, no, as Nalby showed his ability of choking just as well when serving for the match where he got broken once again by Malisse.
At least Nalby showed himself the lesser (or 'better', whatever you like, oops) of the two Choke Gods in the final set TB, but omg, what a hell of a match.
