The AO Feña is back! :yeah:

41 winners :cool:

Well, maybe not quite yet, but atleast based on tonight's performance Gonzalez is finding his form again at the right time...

I saw bits and pieces, nicely done by Gonzo. If he plays well, Gonzo will go to the final. I like Volandri, but I just don't think he is capable of producing a strong final with Nadal. I think Gonzo will make things more interesting.

Well Gonzo wasn't as errorless as during the AO but he kept the winner/error rate positive enough to win it. Typical Gonzo match where he decided what happened on court and his opponent just absorbed everything waiting for the small chances to attack and/or the errors from Gonzo.

He has a good chance to win it all.

Impressive performance Gonzo, lovely dropshots (Rafa should learn from him :)) and scaring forehand. Volandri's luck should reach his end tomorrow.

Well done Fena :yeah:

I wish I could say "go on and win the title" but a more realistic goal would be reaching the final :p

Unless I'm greatly mistaken, after tonight's match the two men's record in Masters Series QFs is now:

Gonzalez 7-3
Chela 0-8

I knew Chela had a winning record, but it was a close one with some hard-fought matches and this was their first encounter on clay. As they haven't played since early 2005 Chela had never faced the new "percentage" Gonzalez, and the mixture of slowballing backhand slices combined with a sudden dropshot or explosive forehand seemed to work well. But things got tight early in the second with three straight breaks of serve, very nearly four, and Gonzalez had to hold from 0-30 down in the final game, having wasted a lot of breakpoints.
