Congrats Albert!

I haven't watched the match, but let me guess:

1) James missed to close it in 2

2) in the 3rd set he was dued (because Albert is in agood form and Albert feels himself in the 2 hours + matches like a fish in the water)

3) James played 2 sets in 1/2 today so when the match approached 3rd set it was a race aginst time for James

Spain is full of lucky players :o Montanes should of lost earlier this week and Blake is expected to lose these matches since hes a choker.

Right on the dot, I guess. Blake had 2 match points in the 2nd, and then he just tired in the 3rd. Plus Montanes is in good form.

You ought to take your delusional loathing for America to the next level because you obviously feel strongly enough about it to bark it here incessantly. I can recommend a few more meaningful places to do this other than a tennis forum. Don't leave here altogether, though. ;)

Montañes saved one MP in his QF match against Gilles Simon (5-7 6-4 7-6(4)) as well. Has it ever happened before that the winner of a tournament has saved MP in more than one match? I guess it has happened but probably not too many times. Voo?

Voo, will know if anyone does in this subject.

Blake did hit a line and got a good bounce for him at 6 all, if he was good enough, he'd have won the match, it's not like he didn't have chances.

Unlucky Blake. He was always going to struggle to win two matches in one day. His 5-set record proves he's no marathon man.

Congrats Montanes.

But he's a stupid one, therefore he loses so many matches which should have won. It's a matter of wrong shot selection and lack of proper concentration when it's the most required.

If Blake wasn't tired, he would've put it away. 2 matches within a couple of hours, that's what did it. Montañes is very lucky.

He smugly smiled on grass while serving for a Davis Cup match and thought he lost 3 Olympic match points because of bad luck and Gonzalez' cheating.

He also laughed after a lucky tiebreak win over Mathieu. He had to save 2 match points in that precious DC match. Cry for the poor nice genius. The US team certainly does. Good week. He's so tired!!!! :rolls:

Yes, but it's amazing he doesn't draw any conlusions. He has been an extreme MP waster :D It isn't even funny anymore.

Blake makes no adjustments whatsoever to his game regardless of circumstances. He was struggling to win points on Montañes' service games throughout yet he didn't even consider taking a couple of steps back to return serve.

Montañes played meh.

This final was about as dull as a match in which the winner saves MPs can be.
