Nalbandian def. Seppi 7-5 7-5

After being down 2-5 in the first set he turned it around and was able to win it by 7-5 and let's not talk about the second set, cause he could have won it more easily than that
Anyway, congrats for the win

I was waiting for you to post it Jazz.

It's a win, so...well done David . And don't make us suffer that much next round. Oh I know that is too much to ask.

He'll be playing Robredo next, so I can see some suffering coming up.
I hope he doesn't play the first match, so he doesn't have to complain again

I can see a lot of suffering coming up with David, Gaudio and Coria. Robredo will be tough.

He would've had Seppi in the third anyway.

Nalbandian angry with early start
David Nalbandian hit out at organisers of the Monte Carlo Masters after struggling to overcome Italian Andreas Seppi 7-5 7-5 in the second round.
The Argentine, a semi-finalist at the Australian Open earlier this year, was unhappy with his 10am start.

"It's ridiculous to play at this time," said the third seed.

Meanwhile, countryman Guillermo Coria saved four match points and fought back from 5-1 down in the second set to beat Paul-Henri Mathieu 1-6 7-6 6-4.

Coria, who has reached the last three finals of this event, could not get going in a one-sided opening set and then lost the first four games of the second.

But the sixth seed fought back to take the second set 8-6 in a tie-break and then edged the decisive set to book his place in the third round.

Swiss top seed and world number one Roger Federer eased past Alberto Martin of Spain 6-0 6-1.

The seven-time Grand Slam champion has never been beyond the quarter-finals at Monte Carlo.

Title holder Rafael Nadal was equally impressive, crushing wild card Jean-Rene Lisnard, who beat Britain's Andy Murray in the first round, 6-4 6-1.

Juan Carlos Ferrero, winner in 2002 and 2003, advanced with a 6-1 6-2 demolition of Argentine Juan Ignacio Chela.

Re: Nalbandian def. Seppi 7-5 7-5

Here's the interview. It's quite short:
THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. How do you feel on clay at the moment?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: Well, not hundred percent. But I don't know, the match today, it's difficult to take something positive. I mean, I didn't play my best.

Q. Was it too early for you?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: Very early. I don't know, this kind of tournament, it's ridiculous to play at this time. Looks like, I don't know, futures - futures in, I don't know, nowhere. So it's ridiculous.

Q. You're not used to playing that early?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: No, no. And when you ask to play a little bit late, so it's worse.

Q. What is your main ambition at the moment?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: Well, try to win a tournament. I mean, I know that I can play good on clay as well, so I have to keep going, try to get more confidence every match that I play. I didn't play lot of matches after Paris last year, Roland Garros, so I didn't play many tournaments on clay, so that's tough in the beginning.

But I feel that I can play better.

Q. In which respect above all?

DAVID NALBANDIAN: Well, I don't know. I have to try to play my game all the time.

David just had a touch more to his game since both of them are similar in style.

Another Game for Milos

Let's hope he plays a little bit late next round. But man, he likes to complain! As a professional he should be ready for anything. And 10 AM, is not THAT early anyway.

Re: Nalbandian def. Seppi 7-5 7-5

10:00 a.m. is early but they have to do that because there is only so much sunlight, they don't really use the lights and clay matches (even best of 3) can theoretically go o for a long time.
