Since RG, PHM has only beaten Di Mauro, Goodall, Santoro, Garcia Lopez and Seppi. Great fighting in the first set TB, saving a couple of SPs. :yeah:

Djokovic played pretty crappy. Paulo was the better player today, but they both had some reallllly messy patches. Nole had his chances.. wasting 6 SPs in the first set and having his chances in the second set too. Blah. Good luck PHM in the next round.

Why speechless? Mathieu is a good player who can hang with the best of them. It was just a matter of time before he got a good win again. Congrats Paulo! :)

Match lasted 2:40!!! Is it the longest two-sets-match in this year?
Djokovic wasted 8 set points (6 first set, 2 second).

Not the match of the year. Both were going alternatively through bad moments. PHM was probably needing this victory a bit more.

Before the match Novak had an amazing tb record... I can't believe he lost two of them. :lol: Some of his shots were really :silly: For most of the match it was Nole without the brain today, not Paulo. :sad:

horrible Novak, he didn't deserve to win and choked badly and gave up in tie breaks where he is usually good. Just didn't seem up to it like something bothered him . Oh well get rest in the off season and start anew in in 2 months

Before the match Novak had an amazing tb record...

Yes indeed... He had an excellent tie-break record (23-6... 79 %) before this match in hole career :eek: I feel that Nole is a very strong mental player and for sure he will win many matches in the future with crucial tie-breaks.

That's why it's so infuriating that he lost two of them today! :lol: To go from 23-6 79% to 23-8 74% in one match sucks! :rolls:

I really can`t believe it,I was watching the live scores and expecting him to lose but he didn`t (if it`s the cap burn it!).

Paul-Henri played very nice in decisive moment of the match, if Paul will play tomorow like today, he def. Gro or Tommy
