Nalby looked 5 years younger at times. Gotta hand it to him, when fit his brand of tennis is still tough for any opponent. And as always his game is impressive on the eyes to boot

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.

good to see Nalbandian back to winning ways. the only thing Tsonga can do better than David is serve so I am not surprised by the result!

Tsonga doesn't deserve that 6th spot. He simply doesn't use his talent, he has to go to the net way more often.

No, 30-0 and 40-30.

It's tough to believe that Tsonga lost this match like a total mug. Of course he should have won the point at 30-0 in that game, but his reaction was inadequate, he had still his serve, and Nalbandian seemed like a guy who rather accepted the loss today... until leveled up at 5 games apiece.

This looked just like in the old times, play like shit for 2 sets, gets down match points and then snatch a victory from the jaws of a defeat.
I wouldn't be surprised if the same thing happens in some of his next matches, but in a reverse role. Some fun running forehand bombs from Tsonga, extremely fast and excellent defense in the first two sets. Nalbandian with few magic strokes in the third set, but that was it, nowhere near the level he had against Tipsarevic.

If the comment "the better player won" ever was justified, it was so today. Bravo, David!
