Verdasco pays the price for not playing a warm up event other than an exhibition.

story of the match: nando couldn't handle the 88 mph pace of Fognini's 2nd serve.

Fognini shouldn't be winning 64% of his 2nd serves to anyone on grass.

Clever guy this Verdasco is . He was playing every week all day long for a month and who fucks rest of the season . Dasco can be proud of itself . Playing in Nice and than few long matches at RG saved the season for him . What else you can expect from great minds like Verdasco :worship:

only saw the tie-break of the third and the last game of the fourth, and Verdasco looked like he didn't give a shit. Fognini didn't look like he cared that much either.

I can only conclude Fer is still feeling like he's overplayed and a bit burnt out.

His schedule over the spring was absurd and now he's paying the price.

And he is not 21 as Querrey on US Open Series last year, he cannot say it is because of his unexperience.

After watching the whole match, Verdasco had troubles with his feet...and had a full injury time-out to treat them in the 4th set. But mostly, it just looked like he didn't have his head in the game. It really does suggest re-thinking his priorities to play so much this spring, then show up at the most important tournament of the year and have nothing left in the tank.

Fognini, on the other hand, played well. He didn't play his very best, I don't think...and as always had that 'casual' look of loping around the court. But he played thoughtfully...changed the pace on the ball often...and made passes (up the line, especially) when he had to. It's his first win over a top-10 player, and he should be proud.

Fog is a different player since that epic win against Mugfils at RG. :cool:

I like his casual hitting of the ball, it looks like he doesn't care about it...however, he's a bit too casual at times, sometimes being almost booed off the court due to lack of effort. :unsure:

Verdasco's schedule is one of the world's biggest misteries.

nando looked tired, didn't have energy to shave like a pro.

Actually, shaving was the only thing Fernando did well today.

If you've seen photos or video of him from the past week or so, his beard had been getting very unruly and out-of-hand. He had it trimmed up nicely today. But it did almost look like shaving used up most of his energy supply.

Not too surprising in hindsight. The amount of matches Fernando has been playing this year has clearly caught up to him. He was flat as a pancake today, he looked just like he did throughout the French. He is a guy who needs to take a long break now to recharge. Fabio did what he needed to do and kept it simple, he's definitely maturing, congrats to him on the win today.

06-23-2010, 03:23 AM

I saw it, and it was basically unwatchable and completely shocking and an embarrassment, but it was sort of like that train wreck you couldn't stop watching. He almost won the match too, which made it even more interesting, it took Mecir to come back to win that match, with Fabio looking like his head was in Italy.

Anyway, although he'll likely never fully change his ways, at least Fabio is starting to win some matches in GS events (and in general) when he needed to in the worst of ways.

He is just mad beacause he was playing in Court 12 and no one could paid attetion on him all day 2 So, if he had gone to 2nd Round , he would have just played in court 10+ and no one is going to pay attetion on him AGAIN,

What?? Fognini is one of the most defense players in the top 100! Playing the lefty Verdasco I never thought he would have a chance. Big, big upset!!

But nice win for Fognini after the great French-Open!

Verdasco pays the price for not playing a warm up event other than an exhibition.

He was going to play Queens, but had to withdraw due to an injury. The exo was later, so he figured he could get some practise on grass and the same time relax and recover from the injury before the exo. It makes sense actually.

Too bad the injury resurfaced during a slam, but well.. He lost. Time to relax and hopefully get better from the inujury too.

06-23-2010, 09:25 AM
Very dissapointing, to think I actually taught he would make it far here. He had a great draw and F.... it up big time. Very dissapointing, Nando is a very talented guy but his attitude is what has always kept him from taking the next step. Hopefully this does not effect his confidence too much. A great start to the season is now turning sour. I hope he turns it around. I don't think his injury is that serious, its all in his head.

Good win for Fabio and good luck to him in the next rounds.

The Nando tards saying he was an all surface player...



He is(he has proved in the past that he can play on grass), the problem is that Fernando is unpredictable, he can lose to anyone on any surface, when he is bad, he is really bad. I am talking terrible.:o
