AO, R1: Riba def. Montanes 7:6, 2:6, 6:4, 7:6

Losing to Riba on hardcourts deserves a special award, like The Mug of the Mugs, what Montanes was already long time ago anyway.

Like Albert a lot but he's done. No movement left.

Montanes and Davydenko should play an exhibition and one who'd lose should retire.

I think Riba was the only opponent Montantes could be able to beat and he failed

Pere Didn't expect this after all, I'm really happy for him

Albert I suppose we won't see him again along middle-big names.

Did Montanes ever recover from that epic match against The Fog at Roland Garros?
