I'm on about Nadal here. He is so in awe of him he's beaten before the first point is played, the same way Wawrinka and Troicki are by their own masters.

Re: Greater achievement: Monaco in TOP 10 vs Alund in TOP 100

Monaco vs..

Murray 2-2
Tipsarevic 2-3
Ferrer 4-3
Del Potro 1-1
Berdych 0-6
Tsonga 0-3
Almagro 3-4
Roddick 1-1
Ferrero 2-2


I don't know what is everyone's problem with the guy. So he has no big weapons? Doesn't mean he can't be a good, consitent player. Maybe not a regular top10, ok, but no need for such a bashing.

His H2H vs top3 is bad? So is Ferrer's and he has been a consistent and deserving top5 for a very long time now.

Re: Greater achievement: Monaco in TOP 10 vs Alund in TOP 100

Monaco's h2h with Ferrer is bizarre to me since he is basically a more defensive Ferrer who does everything worse

So because he managed 2 fluke wins against murray, 1 fluke against del potro, 2 against a past it ferrero and 2 against tipsarevic who at the time was nowhere near the top 10 he deserves to be top 10? more like deserves to be top 200

so 7 matches he wins against good opposition = 7 fluke matches?

Did you even read my post? I never said he deserves to be a top 10. I said otherwise. But he certainly does not deserve all the bashing he gets.

Re: Greater achievement: Monaco in TOP 10 vs Alund in TOP 100

Alund ain't top 100 yet, he might pull a Nalbandian and get dafaulted and forfeit his points and not become top 100

Monaco was playing really well last year, deserved to be top 10 at the time(now he's just playing terrible). I haven't seen much of Alund so I can't really say but if he beats Rafa here today it's gotta be well deserved too.

He's nothing like Nalbandian from what I see. He doesn't seem to exhaust energy between or during points by showing any emotion.

Alund takes a set off Nadal wake me up when Monaco does it, or gets close to.

I don't think he is more defensive but he certainly is a worse player.

Come on. You know very well that Monaco would probably beat this Nadal. It's not fair comparing performances vs Rafa when this guy is playing THIS Rafa...

Well, I don't know how he is playing now. But Monaco certainly has it in him to beat a Rafa that loses to Zeballos...

Quality post


Monaco - Del Potro - Nadal - Wawrinka - Robredo - Dimitrov - Chardy - Berdych
