Wawrinka had put up a good fight. His bh was aggressive and hit some nice shots,despite some unforced errors. He did have loads of bps to pull the match to a 5th set,but he wasted 'em all. He was emotional and lack of patience.
As for David, good match,but next time pls make more winners!!
well done David:yeah::banana:

I only watched the second and the third set. In the 2nd, David played poorly, Wawrinka made some nice winners and served pretty well. Wawrinka also played better in the third set, but David played some good shots in the key moments (great serve and volley with a bp at 4-4).

If you have been following David, you would know he never hits a lot of winners. He forces and uses the other players errors to win.

No, he does have the patience, if you see the rallies between him and Nalby. He just always play very aggressive baseline, and risks of many big angle shots. :) don't forget his fav is clay, a surface needing the real patience ;)

The showing of Wawrinka was okay, Nalbandian often has many break points against him, it's not only Wawrinka who blows them.

I'm looking forward to the match against Nieminen already, this should be a good one, especially since Nieminen is faring very well so far. These two have quite a history and most matches have been very interesting and I have the feeling that Nalbandian will have to take this match against Nieminen very seriously.

well, he is not a player who always keep the same game style. He has his own tactics to treat different opponents. if you watch his clay matches and indoor hard matches, you will find he is much more attacking on fast surface. and i don't think his match is less enjoyable than those who always keep hitting big-power forehand winners. :p

Really good match actually, credit to both players.

2 of the best backhands on the tour on show. Some of Stan the man's single handers were :hearts: but he made a few too many errors. He needs to improve his forehand as well, if he does I can see him reaching the top 20 in the next year or so. Nalbandian played well, he served really well and was very solid off both wings. I was impressed.

Good job David!!!.
Nalbandian is a very smart player, he may not hit a lot of winners because he prefers to play with a certain margin of error.

He is not playing at his best, but he was better than the first match. Against Nieminen he need to play much better, but he can do it and he always show his real level in this kind of matchs.

After the match, David talked to ESPN LA and he said he felt much better today, and he knows he'll feel better during the week, just like the doctors told him. He also thought he played better today and he knows he beat a very dangerous player, who'll be very big in the future.

Seriously though, Wawrinka is nobody.

If Daveed couldn't stomp all over him, he really wasn't in good form and didn't deserve to win anyways.

Stan is ranked 46 so he is moving up there. He actually isn't Roger's double partner. He has promise of helping Roger out during DC.

Wawrinka isn't a nobody, he's one of the best young talents in the game. He's had a good start to the year and I still think he should've beaten Haas in Doha. He's got a big game, with great groundies especially on the BH. He needs to improve his return of serve and his movement though, but I'm sure he will and get better.

Well, it seems like we have a another great comedian who has entered the stage only to make a fool outta himself...

I'm most certainly not going to tell how far Stan can/will go and where his boundaries are set but if you just look at how well and fast he has improved over the last year until now, you mustn't neglect the possibility of him being a serious contender in the future. He came straight outta nowhere and actually is already placed # 46. He also beat talented players like Berdych or Murray. With his style of play he can always cause real problems to his opponents - if his UE are even with the number of winners. Moreover he progressed in his second serve which was working pretty good today, considering it was Nalby ond the other side, definitely one the game's most talented return players (to name only one of his many capabilities...) - especially the high kick was very solid.

Stan may be not as talented as others but his attitude and work ethic are flawless - and we all know that hard work tends to pay out ;-)

Who knows? But he has more potential than, say, Ginepri. Back to the thread, it was a dangerous match for Nalbandian, i thought he would be kicked out given how he played in the first round but he made it and his chances are not worse against Nieminen than they were against Stani so it will be interesting to see how it goes.

Stan is not a nobody-that is, if he's ranked #46 and being on the tour for one year. His counterparts, Murray, Djokovic, et.al., aren't ranked that high. It's a testament to the guy's patience and work ethic (and having someone like Roger Federer as a teammate certainly helps), and I'm sure it will pay dividends for him in the future. He's definitely one to watch.

It's going to be tough for David to beat Jarkko. And if it's going to be a question of outlasting the opponent, I'd say Nieminen has the edge - he's in top form!

From David's point of view, what makes things better is that he knows perfectly well what he's up against, as these guys have played each other so many times. But David can't afford to lose his focus, not even for a moment, 'cause Jarkko is sharper than he used to be and is not going to give it away at any point. Should be a great match.
