Bratislava CH Final: [Q]Gerasimov def. Lacko 7-6(1) 7-6(5)
Wow, for me this is shocking. What a week for Gerasimov, all the way from qualifying to winning one of the strongest challenger tournaments in the circuit
Fairytale story, beat Weintraub, Rosol (!), Gombos, Copil and now Lacko
The most impressive stat would be that he played 8 tiebreaks (1 in QD, 7 on the MD) and won 7 of them (lost 1 against Gombos)
Federer will be remembered for his lack of fitness in the latter stages of his career. I mean he won RG with visible manboobs
"I don't give a rat's ass whether I'm playing a big or a small tournament. I'm Matwé Middelkoop, I go on that court and it doesn't matter who I'm facing. [...] Whether it's a blue court in Australia or a clay court in Morocco, I don't care."
