over 3 hrs 20 mins :cool:

Lapentti saved 1bp when he was serving for the match at *5-4 in 3rd set.

Congrats Nico. Now You're gonna play Tipsarevic in 2nd round.

I actually thought I would get there first, but now I'm just part of the herd. Ah well, do your thang, mods.

Nico Nico Nico! :hug: :hug: How I wish I could have seen that.

Of all the mickey mouse tournaments in Europe, Monte Carlo is the one I'd most like to see. :)

Fun match to watch, plenty of gruelling rallies and Lapentti showing his love of the slice backhand. This was claycourt tennis, not a bunch of hardcourt players just hitting flat.
