Don't think we will see Nico in the tour in 2011, but maybe his time has really come.

Couldn't do much in the court, didn't seem like the real Nico which was a little bit sad to see.

Great for Taylor anyway.

Two old warriors against each other, pretty surprising outcome. Dent was struggeling with his form as well and had a little injury. He is probably just here to get some match practice for the grass.

It's over for Nico. It's just not there anymore, and you can tell he knows it. Too many injuries, too much wear and tear, mentally and physically.

If Ecuador doesn't make it into the WG this season, I expect retirement by the end of the year.

Great win for Taylor considering how he's been playing and his health situation, these quick courts suit him well. Hope he gives Robin a good match.

What a result for Taylor. Hope this gives him confidence for grass where he has huge potential. Great to see him back.

Didn't see this one coming.

Dent mixed things up quite well and used his slice backhand to good effect.

Yep, not expected.

Vamos Taylor.

Taylor played a very good match, he had the upper hand in most of the baseline rallies as well, which I didn't expect. Of course, Nico's having a bad year and played far from his best, but it's a great win for Taylor nevertheless.

Superb use of slice BH today by Taylor, knifed it very well in numerous occasions :yeah:

Wow, Taylor was rubbish lately but this is very good.
