Florent was cruising on serve in the first set and had *5-4 lead in the tiebreak, didn't win another point and double faulted at 5-5. That was it in this match.

Such a blown opportunity for Florent. His ranking is really going down the drain. He really needs to start winning or retire if that's what he feels best, this constant losing R1 just isn't cutting it.

My disappointment out of the way, I'm very happy for AHM! 37 aces is clinical. He did only win 37% of second serve points so his serve seems to have carried him. With that big serve, maybe he can give Nalby some trouble.

He's so so so so so bad. He was fun to watch when he was good.

Amazing result for tennis... Amazing result for the world...

The day Serra retires could very well be the day when greed and corruption is eradicated from the world, when a new consciousness dawns upon humanity, when the starving no longer go hungry, the sick no longer stay ill, the poor no longer stay poverty-stricken, when all inhabit this earth peacefully and co-exist amidst natures wonderful abundance...

One step closer...

Serra is basically pure evil.

He was fun to watch and he still is when he's going good, but he's playing injured. Lately he's been actually close in matches but then choking. So it's a spiral of negativity and failure, which has led to him feeling depressed and contemplating retirement. I think he said that if he finished out of the top 100 this season he's retiring.

The only positive is he doesn't have much to defend the rest of the season. The bad is that he has shown no actual sign of winning matches consistently. It's just a disappointing situation. But, he knows what he needs to do to start winning, it's up to him to actually do it, and cut the bullshit.

Actually scrap that lost post I made. I forgot that Troicki is still around.

I've never known why people don't like Florent, he has an really cool game to watch when he's playing well. He's really similar to Baghdatis or a Nalbandian, and they have a lot of fans.

Serra has a terrible personality, always bitching and complaining with himself or ballboys. Thankfully, he'll be demoted to qualis soon.
