Mayer started off well, happy to see him back from the injury problems but once Nalbandian settled down, just a class above.

Funky Flo saved 4 match points.

Why the hell to Germany ever even consider clay for Davis Cup ties or ATP tournaments?

DTB are morons. No wonder German tennis is dead.

Knowing Nalby's bad luck, he will lose either semis or the final again.

It was to be expected that this is going to be quite a different match between these two than the one in Shanghai couple of months ago. Nalbandian needed a set to adjust to Mayers serve and funky game. In the next 2 sets, he was just a class above, Flo had no answer at all on sharp angles and especially backhand dtls. Despite being a break up in the fourth, it was obvious that he won't get that set without a double break, cause Nalbandian was deeply involved in his every service game. In TB the more experienced player was more composed and quickly rushed to 6:1. In the end saving 5 MPs proved to be a too tall task for a german although he had some help in form of a small choke from Nalbandian on few.
