Madrid Masterminds: Verdasco outsmarts Mathieu 6-4 3-6 6-3

This match will be showcasing 2 of the finest young specimens of mental stability in the ATP. It is still unclear to me who will out-yield who, but it should be quite an entertaining encounter.

Re: Madrid Masterminds: Verdasco v Mathieu

Was this thread necessary?
Verdasco has the crowd. Mathieu recently lost to Benneteau.
I think that, a priori, Verdasco has a little advantage.

Dunno if the thread was necessary but I'll watch the match for sure and no doubt be greatly entertained.

Re: Madrid Masterminds: Verdasco v Mathieu

There's one thing I've learned, and this thing is true for Paulo too. Don't expect your expectations to get real every time....On the paper, Verdasco should win, with the public behind him to help counterbalancing a possible lack of focus. But...who knows? What is sure is that I'm gonna see that match.

Best of LUCK to ALL my Faves in 2015

Even if it turns out to be a "WTA match"?

Delsa, you know with PHM and Nando the drama level is right up there. And I like that.

This one was sooo one-sided.
I was more speaking of something like Dementieva vs. Dechy : breaks, breaks and breaks, loads of UEs and DFs, a perfect hold-up by one of the players who suddenly manages to hold in the end etc...So... the routine basically!

I can only wish that it will be that close. Paulo, please don't lose 6-1 6-3 or something again!
