Challenger San Luis Potosi: Menendez-Maceiras def. Massu 7-6 5-7 6-4 in WTA style

This match was quite the display of how far Massu has fallen.

Massu led 5-2 in the first set TB and lost
AMM was serving 4-2 30-0 in the second, DF'ed and missed 2 smashes to be broken. He then lost 8 of the next 9 games.
Massu was leading 4-0 in the third and lost the next 6 games with a display of muggness that I don't think I've seen yet in 2013.

Canada Pospisil - Dancevic - Peliwo

Crazies Dolgopolov - Fognini - Janowicz - Gulbis

Young Guns Thiem - Vesely - Coppejans

3 hours and 16 for this apparent mug fest.

Will they keep giving Massu CH WC?

Massu is WC candidate for Montecarlo and I think he deserves it.

Based on losing 8 of his last 9 matches? Including losing in the 1st round of a clay future to a hard courter ranked 526? (he was also up a break in the third set of that match)

menendez was serving at 0-4 15-15 when he suddenly went nuts for no apparent reason.

walked back to his chair and was arguing with the umpire. looked like he was about to retire.

then he comes back, hits a few decent first serves and dominates the rest of the match out of nowhere.

Why give a WC to a washed up mug who can't beat anybody?

I'm sure everybody would rather see Carreno-Busta or any youngster play over Massu

I wonder how much of Massu's failures this year are mental. Every match he's had major chances in. The futures event choke all the way up to a minor choke against Montanes. Hope he improves

When Massu is playing just make a bet it will be a long match with many games. You will never lose
