Always thought Zabaleta had as much talent as Gonzalez.

What went wrong?

Major Injury MC 2005 ... followed by long term injury 2006.... followed by nosedive in the rankings.... but he's been climbing back quite well since September last year.

Never in doubt and now he has to fry the Fish in the next round.

“ On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

But OMG, the second was close, 10-8 in tiebreak What a contrast to the first set.
If he lost that breaker, maybe he would loose the match...
