Some people said he should not have received a WC. This is why I thought he should. I knew he had a good shot to win but I didn't know if he had the match practice at this level to make it happen since he was out injured for quite a while. But he played a really controlled, aggressive match and totally dictated proceedings throughout. Serve was on, played very good defense at times. A lot of talent as a clay courter.

Mannarino was very poor, but much of that has to do with Rufin.

I said he shouldn't have received a WC, and I still think that. Mannarino though, oh boy :lol:
I mean he lost 2 and 2 to Riba last week :p

10 winners, 41 errors for Mannarino. He's simply not a clay courter. He was getting outhit, then he tried hitting with more pace, which led to more errors. Also he doesn't move well on clay. He'll be happy grass season is here.

That was the worst I have ever seen a "professional" play in a grand slam match.

Mannarino isn't that good on clay anyway.

Not as good as Lemke at least.

Although Mannarino is bad on clay I didn´t expect a 2,3,2 loss against Rufin. (I actually expected a win:sobbing:)

No kidding...especially considering he wasn't too too bad from what I saw in a couple tourneys on the clay this year
