This match will be showcasing 2 of the finest young specimens of mental stability in the ATP. It is still unclear to me who will out-yield who, but it should be quite an entertaining encounter.

Verdasco has the crowd. Mathieu recently lost to Benneteau. :rolleyes:
I think that, a priori, Verdasco has a little advantage.

Dunno if the thread was necessary but I'll watch the match for sure and no doubt be greatly entertained. :D

There's one thing I've learned, and this thing is true for Paulo too. Don't expect your expectations to get real every time....On the paper, Verdasco should win, with the public behind him to help counterbalancing a possible lack of focus. But...who knows? :shrug: What is sure is that I'm gonna see that match. :)

This one was sooo one-sided. :tape:
I was more speaking of something like Dementieva vs. Dechy : breaks, breaks and breaks, loads of UEs and DFs, a perfect hold-up by one of the players who suddenly manages to hold in the end etc...So... the routine basically! :lol:

I can only wish that it will be that close. Paulo, please don't lose 6-1 6-3 or something again! :help:

This could be a very interesting match if both of them can play semi-well, at the same time the capacity for an orgy of unforced errors is also very likely. I would like to see Verdasco win, but any individual who think he is a sure thing to win this, does need some help.

well nando already has a break in this first set so it depends how phm responds in the rest of this set/thestart of the next one

Madrid's altitude makes Verdasco's serve a very dangerous weapon

First set Nando 6-4. I don't mind who wins, I like them both. 2 of the most talented, underachieving players around.

Nando proves his mental stability, after leading by a set and a break and not being at all troubled on his serve he gets broken twice in a row thanks to some stunning double faults and loses the set 6-3. 1 set all :lol:

Verdasco defies his critics to take this one out in 3, after a minor choke.

A match loaded with silly errors. Why do I follow these 2, all they give me is headaches.

Well done, Fernando! His first serve was unreturnable in the first and third sets. :yeah: It went away in the second and Paulo took the momentum but predictably gave it back after having 2 BPs at 1-1 in the third and after that, totally lost his way. :help:

Well done Verdasco. I was waiting for him to choke (25% of first serve in the 2nd!!!) but it didn't happen.
Paulo :sad: Where is the end of the tunnel?

Mirza is that kind of players that should be more patient and less impulsive because she hits too many risky shots searching the winners . Although in fact a lot of WTA players have this brainless playstyle , above all european blonde girls :o

Exactly. That describes Verdasco's game as well. :)

Let's see if Verdasco can do anything else in this tourny. Hopefully PHM can do something in Paris. It's been business as usual after Canada for Paulo.
