Miami R4: Robin def Gonzo 6-0 6-7 6-2

Such a rollercoaster.
Robin in cruise control in the first - Gonzo awful.
Robin lost it all in the second while Gonzo upped his level.
Then Toad got back the momentum and some focus in the third.
Showed some strong mentality in the end.
BTW Gonzo is a complete jerk on court.

Nice Clutch, 43 Winners vs 30 UE and 13/20 from Gonza who didn't deserve to play a 2nd set after his clownish unsportsmanship. F'kin judges that can't warn the players more.

Gonzo with the on court antics, and Robin controlling his own destiny as always. Not surprising.

In the end, a pretty solid performance. 43/30 is decent. 17 of them were in the horrific 2nd set.

Yes, Gonzo is so bad. And in the TB i think Gonzo had almost only second serves and Robin just threw the kitchen sink at it, and that mentailty he just has to loose if he wants to keep this ranking up. Other then that he played strongly with few UEs in the first and third. :)

Careless UE’s, double faulting games away, poor tactics, mocking the umpire and linesmen, arguing with Robin, disinterested, looking like he was late for his dinner reservations etc., etc.

Totally unprofessional and altogether just a piss poor performance from Gonzo :(

Lol, people complaining about Gonzo's on court behaviour. They've probably never seen Soderling play, especially when he is losing.

Gonzo cheated at the Olympics against James Blake (whom I also hate), has wiped his ass on the court in front of the crowd in Roland Garros and acted like an ass numerous times. Robin has done a few things too but none as overtly rude as what Gonzo pulls off. :mad:

+1.
I only saw parts of this match (well, the 1st set :worship: and bits and pieces of the 2nd and 3rd), but did catch that 'staring'-scene and it was :o :o :o. He deserved a warning at least for that, but with the umpires of today, players get away with anything.
Really horrible behaviour by Gonzo. Too bad, I was about to start liking him again because of his charity event for Chile, but I think he draw a lot of bad blood with his behaviour on court today. What a prick he was.

Robin has been pretty embarrasing to watch in the past. For the most part, he wasn't disrespectful against his opponents though. Nowadays, he behaves much better.

Having the momentum of the match and putting somebody on the ropes are completely different. Your opponent isn't necessarily on the ropes even if you have the momentum. And in this match particular, Robin didn't seem to panic and just stayed consistent, so he clearly didn't feel that way.

pretty sure soderling wasn't apologising for net cord winners, typical though.

Why are you still crying about Robin? Who cares, some players do, some players don't. Do you want him to serve his opponents tea too while he is at it?

I know, he's really improved in both the mental and behaviour department.
But I was only talking about this particular match, and here it was obvious that Gonzo was behaving as a complete A$$.

Haha you forgot cleverness and that decides everything and Robin is far smarter then mr gonzales...the only way he wins points is when he gets to use his forehand. And Robin's serve is alot better.

This is laughable on many levels. Doesn't matter if Gonzo has a better slice, movement or volley when he's getting toyed around with by Soderlings ground strokes. It's all about playing to your strengths my friend. Gonzo has one of the best forehands on tour but didn't get any use out of it.

Entertainer? As in being a clown? Then yes I agree, it was kinda entertaining after all.
Gonzos serve is not even close.

You are a fucking clown. You of all talking about baised when you yourself are biased to every single Argentine player like Del Mugro, an other one-dimensional ball-basher.

STFU.

BTW, Gonzalez himself is a clown of the highest order.

DEL POTRO = ALL COURT PLAYER.

And seriously, stop accusing others of being biased, you're only retard in the world who would think Nalbandian is more talented than Safin only because he's argentinian.

The second set was comedial in so many ways. Gonzo needs to stop embarrassing himself on court with his bullshit.

Kinda funny to think that Söderling has now made the quarters or better in his last four Masters. I would have preferred to see him play daytime today, but he's still got a good chance to make his second consecutive semi as well.
