I saw part of this match and Malisse was his usual pathetic self. His body language was dreadful, even when he was leading in the second set. I just knew he would lose this match despite the fact that there was absolutely no reason why he could not win it.

i was surprised malisse didnt freak out after his last shoot (it looked liked a winner) was out. even the linesman showed its good at first, just later changed his mind and shouted out. this isnt the same guy who was defaulted against ferrer in miami

Serves him right. Saving energy for GS....lol. He was being full of himself. Mickey mouse events like Sydney are right up his ally.

hm, my initial reaction watching this last point at normal speed (they didn't show a replay) was that it was really out! Malisse seemed to have a good view on it, too, and probably saw it himself that it was out and accepted the decision and was just a little bit pissed off that it was so close.

probably you're right, but at least they could have showed us a replay, it was pretty close either way

But he was discussing endlessly with the umpire on some other stuff.
I've read somewhere that he has very good eyes and is often right when he challenges calls and other stuff, and I understand that is can be very irritating when linesmen and umpires make mistakes. But by now he should know that it is all part of tennis and that in matches where 3 winning sets are needed, it's levelled out between the two players in the course of a match.

Malisse has to learn that if he is a tennisplayer, he has to let his racket do the talking. If he wants to be a linesman or and umpire, he should put away his racket and do that job. I'm sure he prefers to be a tennisplayer.
At the end of the day, they did not make him lose, he made himself lose.

Re: Clement def. Malisse 6-3, 3-6, 7-5, 6-4

Sounds crazy, but from my feeling watching a bit of this match and the end, I would have given Malisse a pretty good chance to win this if he got out of this last game and somehow held serve in the 4th. Anyway, just a gut feeling Much more I dislike that Malisse could not deliver, he really has a lot of game, would be unbelievable and I find him interesting, but somehow fails to bring it

Malisse is an unpredictable player. His 2 titles in singles and 3 in doubles are like a gloomy joke
