Solid play from Andreev, he lost the momentum in the second set after being down a break and calling for medical assistance but basically dominated the final set

It all seems like very hard work for Gonzo at the moment - he's trying to allow the sort of form he found in Australia to come out, and it isn't doing - and so he's trying to force it - and that isn't working either.

Good job for Igor but I am disappointed for Gonzo. :sad:

I'm sad for Gonzo, I love him. But I love Andreev, too, and I can see him coming out of this quarter. How great would an Andreev/Nadal semifinal be? :) Considering Andreev was the last person to beat Rafa on clay...

:tears: Fena :hug: I think he needed a little more clay court times to fully prepare. With a bye in the first round, he needed to play one of those smaller tournies to get use to clay.

Congrats to Andreev :)

I had a feeling about this one. Feña...tough day, sorry about that. :hug:

Happy to see Andreev getting through though- looking forward to his next one.

Good win for Igor. :D Nothing is wrong with Gonzalez, losing to Andreev on clay is hardly any cause for concern and it is not as if he can always play as well as he did at the AO.

Igor is definitely working his way back up, very well done. I feel for Gonzo though. I hope the rest of the season brightens up for him, I'd hate to see him pull off a Baghdatis.

Gonzo is going through a bad patch but Igor can play on clay so not an unexpected result.

I believe in Andreev when he plays on clay. Who knows , maybe Igor is the man who finally beats Nadal on clay again.

Haven't seen the match but I read he got treament on his knee, maybe the operated knee let itself feel again but I hope nothing serious. :shrug:

I love that one too. Congrats to him and I'm sure Gonzalez will get his results during the clay season. :)

Theze Fena's ups and downs during an ATP season is a hell of a story :sarcasm:

I'm not a tennis expert, but I'm assuming that the inside-out forehand's central purpose is to create direction. I love the way Igor comes around that ball and just rockets it across. :)

Good win from Igor and this is not a surprising result, as it was Gonzo's 1st match on clay for some time and Igor has been on the surface for a while and the Davis Cup triumph helped him for sure.

Gonzo now has the expectations to live up to after his AO run, and so far he hasn't handled it well.

it's only a bad moment NicoFan, Feña is not a machine, he's not playing his best now, but i hope that he can bounce back in the next clay events

i still loving Larry :lol: Rios No.1, Gonzo No.5.... :o

the problem is not Larry, it's Feña, his bh slice is awful, and also he lost confidence with his fh... he needs to hit hard again like he did it at the end of last year and in the AO, if you dont trust in your guns youre finished in tennis (see Coria's serve)

What is the Andreev injury ?

Saw the match later at night. Looked like upper left thigh (muscle) strain, he got it taped at the beginning of the 2nd set after he got broken but didn't seem to affect his movement much. :shrug:

Totally agree, Coria's serve was Sampras-like back in the day.
