Highlight was Lurch match point down serving an underarm side spinning serve to save it.

Fat Albert impressing Costa who was in the crowd.

Don´t fogert to say that Hanescu served underarm at 1-6 in the TB.
Hanescu wasn´t clicking the first serve while Montañes was tryng to be more aggressive.

Hanescu lost this year 5th match after wasting MP (!), Montanes won 3rd after saving MP. According to my stats, Montanes has never lost a match having MP, it can be a record given the number of tournaments he has played but he has very low ratio of tight matches.

Montanes is playing really well nowadays. He is a mental giant on match points. Has saved quite a few this year. Good win Albert. Really raising his ranking :D

is underarm serve even allowed?? what about those wimpy serves, where it surprises the guy and he doesnt jump quick enough, and you win the point?? would that work? ..

VAMOS!

Saw the third set and Albert was hanging in there, although Hanescu was better player. If you look at his footwork, it's terrible. But his fighting spirit sealed the deal. Good chance he comes against a LL, and can actually win.

Hanescu is a disgrace, he should be suspended for that underarm serve.

Kinda depends on the situation I think - Hanescu did it because he'd given up, end of the tiebreak, a bit disrespectful really. Karlovic did it because Haas was literally camped out on the back fence, so it was a legit tactic.

pretty funny, I think those two have played like 8 TB before and Hanescu has won every single one of them, and Montañes wins the first one to win a match :lol:

the underside serve was quite desperate from Hanescu, a Hingis RG 99 moment of desperation :rolleyes:
