And in reply to your earlier statement: I don't doubt he was dreadful beyond words. Those days happen, and they're happening a bit too frequently as of late. It's back to Challengers very soon.
No no, I understand. Flavio is a really nice guy. I'm not sure about this incident.

I like him a lot, mainly because he's nice and has an interesting style. Everyone makes mistakes though, but who knows, maybe the 5 points he saved himself from playing yesterday helped him. I didn't see it so I can!5 make a definitive judgement.
