Melzer had a set point on serve in the second set. Horrible choke by the Austrian Safin.

He wishes :o

He's obviously not in Safin's league, but a huge underachiever in his own right. He's reached 11 3rd rounds at GS tournaments and lost all of them.

Melzer is too much of a headcase and too prone to error when he's under pressure

gotta give it to Clement :shrug: the old man can still kick it with the younger guys :lol: beating Ferrer and Melzer back-to-back is pretty good for him, given what stage he is in his career :shrug:

Clement should get some credit. In october he was ranked as low as No. 143, and at the age of 32 he was not expected to come back even to top 100, but he did it and now he is going to break top 50! Arnaud had some great wins in his last 2009 tournaments over Tsonga, Haas, Lopez, Beck, Becker and some others.. Clement just choked so many matches in his career, but his GS stats have been great: Runner-up at Aus Open, QF at Wimbledon, QF at USO :D Maybe he will finally do something at his home slam this year :banana:
