Nalb def Benneteau 6-7 6-2 7-5, was 2-5 in 3rd set

During most of the match David's mind was on ballgirls, fishing and rally, but eventually he set his mind on TMC and prevailed.

Bennetau is now head to head with Chela for the title of choker of the tournament. Was 5-2 up in the 3rd and served for match at 5-3.

He was a break down in the third, and Benneteau served for the match.

I can't believe he won... I thought he was toasted. You'd better remember how to play, David.

- Nalbandian is the current 'Master', having won the latest edition of the Masters Cup.
- So it's for Masters only? Ah, I get it. How come Robredo is a "Master" and Safin and Hewitt aren't? I'm positive that they're much better players and would fare much better in the Cup than the Spaniard. Besides, they have won previous editions of that tournament.
- Perhaps you're talking about players who have won Masters Series this year. Are you saying that Davydenko, Blake and Ljubicic shouldn't travel to Shanghai? I fail to see why.

I can't believe David didn't tank when down a couple breaks in the final set.

The difference seperating Fed, Nadal, Roddick and Hewitt from the rest, is their stubborn mindset during dire situations.

Nalbandian is the king of "It'll take too much effort to get back in the match. Better luck next time."
Hope this result will curve his thought process when he's losing significantly to his 2nd round opponent.
