As always, Nico prefers to do it the hard way. Glad he finished this match today, so the schedule was almost done (Isner-Chela was postponed)

God damn it Janko.

Leveled up in the 4th, only to blow the TB.:mad:

Would of been nice to see a fifth set, and Tipsy messed up with 2 set points after making a nice comeback in the 4th, waste.

Nico choked a bit, served the match @ 5:4 and lost all points on serve then, Janko had nice chances of winning the TB, but didn't deliver

good fight from Tipsy in the 4th. saved a heap of virtual mp's at 2-4.

should have been the 5 setter I expected

Allez Nico :bounce:

Really I love Nico game style, he is a jewel on tour, and today my heart feels so sad because Guga says good bye :sad: , but when I see Nico fighting, with his impressive backhand and slices, I feel really good and comfy :worship:

Old rockers never die! :rocker2::music::rocker:

Great. Lapenti won, Tipsarevic lost - equals like two reasons to be happy.

I can't stand Tipsarevic since he was started to play 'Orange Balls'.

Enjoyable match to watch, a bit shorter than expected. Good win for Lapentti, he had too much clay nous compared to Tipsarevic.

Janko choked in the tie break, should have won but did not play well enough. Other than that - typical

what a rollercoaster this Tipsy, you never know with him :retard:

Aww Tipsy - and you were seeded too. Amazing you managed it after last night's great performance at Eurovision though...

Good lord, he does seem to always fall at the brink of something great (seeding in major tourny in this cases) doesn't he? Good player but sheesh!!!
Herdwick- did he really play after a Eurovision performance last night(wtf?!)

This is a terrific win for Nico! :banana: I had expected Tipsarevic would win.

Shame for Tipsy. Had high hopes for him at Roland Garros - including another win over Blake to make the 4th round, but :shrugs:

Well done Nico, good to see there is a place for slice backhands, dropshots and lobs.

Take advantage of it Nico.

Sure - it was a command performance because he won it last year ;)

I'd watched again last night. Both Nico and Tipsy were bad as hell. But, I've noticed something else - in 4rd Lapenti started to spit, and spit, and spit....nose 'job' than spit, and spit....nose job and spit...

I like this guy but this was grooose.
