But he played well! I was there and it was my favourite match of the day. His match in Madrid also was my favourite there, I really like watching him in person.
He got a nice support from the crowd too, I was not the only one who appreciated his effort and his performance.
It was quite a brainfart from Robin when he didn't close it out in the 2nd set (2 DF in one game), but Fabio didn't make the work easy for him either, he played a beautiful BH volley in particular in that game, and then did really well to take the 2nd set in the TB. Good fight in the 3rd too, Söderling was impressive from the baseline, Fabio was chasing down loads of balls which looked unreachable.
I took a few pics, they're crap because I was sitting quite far, it's just to give you an idea of how it looked like. It was funny when he fell after another crazy action and had clay all over his face, it looked like war paints (I didn't catch the spectacular action, but you can see the clay a little bit in the last pics).
