turunov was playing well in the first set. But let himself drop his level just a tad in the next two sets.

Given that I like both players equally, it is hard to feel too bad about this result.

Dima has many more years left in him, while Gordo is in the twilight of his he probably needed it more! Nice work Gordo! :woohoo:

Calleri won the battle between two of the biggest hitters, i watched since the tiebreak of the second set and he played great, what a great bh he has

A good win for Calleri

playing like in the third set he has very good chances to beat Cañas

good job Gordo

due for run

10-16-2007, 04:17 PM
expected one

"due" factor

Calleri played lights out stuff in the end of the second and third, second serve aces, smacking forehand and backhand through the court. When he plays like this he is top 3 most entertaining players in my book. Reminds me of that time he hammered Agassi in Miami.

If only you could carry form easily from one match to the next, there would be alot more great players, Calleri is inconsistent, he can hit winners all day in one and in the next the back wall, but I hope he can give Canas a good game, I'd probably favour Calleri over Canas in this one due to Calleri already having a match played here, hitting a little bit of form and Canas recent struggle.

Vamos Gordo !!
Well Done ! Tomorro is going to be difficult to me to cheer for you

This is a bit of a surprise. Maybe he and Marat are saving their energy for Davis Cup.

Good win there for Gordo, the first set and a half he was ordinary. Then he slowly started to lift the game and then was able to serve better and then hitting winners from everywhere. This was definitely the battle of the tennis scientists.

He likes to play in Madrid and has done well in this event already. Too bad Calleri has had a lot of difficulties and he has only played 1 full season without some injury problem holding him back and he finished top 20 that year.

As for the Canas match, well an Argentine will make the 3rd round.
