Re: Paris R1: Berlocq Tops Istomin 7-6(2) 6-2
Good point.... Warlocq doesn't lose to anybody unless he can allow it. So my take is that he must have had a good reason and must have emotionally compensated Istomin so that Istomin doesn't take it too hard on himself. That theory of mine is reinforced by the fact that the Warlocq army is particularly quiet about this outcome. So my conclusion is that it constitutes no news when Warlocq wins - nothing to write home about.
Much more interesting though when he loses, because there's always a good cause behind it. I'd like to personally congratulate the Warlocq army for highlighting all of Warlocq's "losses", because that's when it matters more to the community.
So yes, I retract my original statement.
