disgraceful for the game for montanes to advance this far.
IW organziers need to be shot for making this into a clay court event.

Funny H2H between these two. They've met only once before, which was on clay and Mello won with the same scoreline.

Good and expected one Albert. Now give Tsonga a hell of a time!

Funny that he, and Almagro as well, is performing better on HC than on clay so far this year.

Montanes was never a mug in fast surfaces. He's not an all-rounder, that's obvious, but he's no Di Mauro either.

Albert has been really lucky with his draws in big tourneys. Good on him for continuing to capitalize on them.

Never know what to expect with Montanes on hard - so often he turns up with zero expectations, phones in a performance, flight out the next day already booked, etc. He can produce reasonable stuff on slow hard though, as he did in Auckland vs Isner, or here last year vs Murray (and Mello is no mug lately, especially on hard).

IW is not a fast surface.

IW is not a fast surface.

I used "fast surfaces" with the meaning of "outside clay".

But a very big one as Marcelo Melo hardly plays single matches at all. ;)

matchwise, pity that Ricardo lost that closely.
