Munich R2: Matosevic def. Farah 6-1 6-7(2) 6-2

First quarter final on clay for Marinko continuing his good start to the season.
Farah just was only there in name in the first set but credit to Matosevic for playing a good match recovering from serving for the match at *5-4.

On some of the forehands Farah was moving so poorly and getting frustrated.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Munich R2: [Q] Matosevic def. [Q] Farah 6-1 6-7(2) 6-2

Should have been a straight sets victory, and it took him several MPs to get it done, but MM got through in the end. MM was better from the baseline overall and returned aggressively, his weapons ended up imposing on Farah more than Farah's did on MM, outside of when MM got tight when trying to close the match out. Good fight from Robert, he played the most offensive when behind and was really attacking the net well the end of the second set, but that wasn't enough.

Good aggressive tennis from Matosevic. Good fight from Farah.

Good stuff Marinko. This should really seal the RG WC now.

Marinko up to around #105 in the rankings with this win, hope he keeps climbing up the rankings

This Farah dude lacks intensity.

(good clean shots, though)

You're being a bit funny, the backhand is a clean shot the others not so much.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Farah doesn't lack intensity. Actually, I'd say the opposite is true.

Hope Matosevic makes the top 100, he has done it hard way. Wasn't funded by TA, had to have group lessons for a while and yes the forehand isn't great but making the most of his game.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

I don't get why people here like Matosevic but dislike other guys with similar antics and behavior. I think it's bullshit.

He also has an ugly game to watch. But when he's confident he does hit the ball very hard.
