You don't have to play good or bad to beat Janko because the Serb is a terrible player all round, and we know he can't handle players who are "half-decent"

A terrible player all-around? Yeah............please. Let's speak in reality here. He's overranked but he's not a terrible player.

Expected. Mugrin is a terrible player. And to think that some clowns thought he'd be a slam contender after his fluke 2010 AO run

Re: Indian Wells R2: Nalbandian def. [24] Cilic 7-6(3) 7-6(4)

Maybe it is just lack of matches, but Cilic is with some serious timing problems when hitting on the run, Bob should take care of that as soon as possible. Except the win itself, Nalbandian has nothing to brag about this match, failed to convert 5 BPs in a 6th game for a double break in the first set, failed to serve for the set, failed to secure the break in the second set (twice), failed to serve for the match despite having a MP. This is a match up that suits him, Cilic doesn't handle well extreme angles and if those are relatively flat with a low bounce - it is kind of nightmarish for him, really shouldn't have gone to a TB in both sets. Unless something drastically changes, Tipsy will win in the next match, perhaps even easier than expected, but you never know with Nalbandian.

Typical Cilic, he is too conservative to win tie-breaks against experienced guys who think on the court.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
My favorite stats
Longest matches
Match points
Tie-breaks
Aces

Always a pleasure when pure talent beats a brainless ballbasher.

David should and could win it in easier way, like 6-3, 6-4...
his first serve is not good enough, improve it when will play vs. tipsi ...
