Just because he had a fluke in one Masters Series event doesn't mean he has to win matches regularly now. :shrug:

Nico has still very good 5-set record :yeah:

But he should be able to conserve a break up (4*-2) in a set, which would have meant to win the match. He's experienced enough to do that.

It doesn't work like that :shrug:

Decent year for Nico, his part of the draw was nice here, but it wasn't to be.

Paul, I don't say he doesn't have a decent year. :rolleyes: I say he should have been able to serve THIS MATCH TODAY out, nothing else.

Agree with Jelena. He should have.

A shame, but it happens with just about everyone.

Lapentti has won so many tight matches in his career that this unfortunate loss doesn't change the whole picture about his stamina and mental toughness :) Generally, defeats like this one are unique in his long career.

Well done Lu. Proving that the Olympic run was not a fluke.

He has a real shot at the 3rd round here and he's still Asia's #1. :yeah:
