I was almost right (I expected three sets win)... but still win. :hug: Nando :yeah: The way isn't too hard to Rafa in R4.

Completely forgot about this match :lol:

Checked the scoreboard when the fourth set started, then something else must have grabbed my attention.

Nice to see Fernando didn't choke this one away, now make a good run please!

Off to the circus Monaco lead a break in the 4th *4-3 and then loses 3 games in a row at the end.

Monaco needed to be more reactive than usual only 15m behind the baseline.

Predictable result. Monaco is just as bad mentally as Nando but he game is nowhere near as good.

Monaco looked more afraid of losing than willing to win. Verdasco did what he had to do in the end, while Pico made no adjustments.

Which is funny because until today, their H2H was 6-2 in Pico's favor :lol:

Nando went into Fiascomode but Monaco outchoked him so that was that..

Fiasco was trying to do a Mugro/Berdy and lose from 2-0, but Monaco wouldn't let him.

First two sets FV was really striking it nicely though.

Nando was really trying to blow it but held on. Should be another tough one with Malisse

Too bad for Nando he has another pain in the arse opponent in Malisse. Should be an awesome block buster match-up. But given that Malisse makes sloppy UE, I expect Verdasco to take him in 4 tight ones.

Tabasco missed a golden opportunity to surpass his Rome Masters work of art.

I'm disappointed in him. Shame.

Monaco has been shit for about 3 years, Nando has been shit for about a year, with intermittent appearances of shit before then. Monaco has just too much shit in his body of work, to overcome, doesn't matter if he showers - the shit will never go, whereas Nando manages to at least get the shit out of his hair every once in a while because of his sponsorship with Head and Shoulders.

Just a load of shit, really.

The only good thing about this match was that Marquez made a post on the GM thread.
