Exactly why Verdasco won't do anything big in his career. Always has a complete mental breakdown at some point. It will cost him in later rounds.

Serra played very good in the third, that's all.
But lacks of consistance to keep this level more than one set.

Strange scoreline, but well done Nando (apart from the 3th set)

BS, it's extremely rare he gets bagelled by anyone, never mind a player like Serra. :lol:

But whatever, shouldn't feed the trolls. :o

WTF was that last set?!?! Great work Verdasco, getting bagled and having to play 4 sets. Good luck against Koli tomorrow. That's gonna be fun!

And this is coming from a fan.. Fernando ugh, back to his choking again. Just a continuation of what happened in Madrid.

Funny stuff. Verdasco looked quite superb at times, then did a total Melzer in the 3rd set.

Well I have never seen something like this before from him. But maybe he just slowed down after he was 3-0 down in the 3th set, he was going to lose that set, so why push?

Then you can't have been following him for very long. This was VERY common before, he never got past the QF and usually choked way before then. I thought he had improved after MC, Barcelona and Rome, but then he started to choke again in Madrid and again now in RG. He doesn't stand a chance against Kohli if he keeps getting these meltdowns..

Yes that's true, but giving a set away and how, 6-0!, against serra, IDK

To be fair to Verdasco, he may have remarkably muggy moments, but as a big favourite he almost never goes on to lose the match.

It seems like every tournament for me lately. He even tried to choke in Monte Carlo against Montanes, I think he was up 5-1 with MPs but went on to lose the set, then stepped up again in the 3rd to scrape though. He really needs to keep his foot on the pedal against the big guns.

It is better to lose that set 6-0 than 7-6. More energy for the following match.

That 3rd set was just a tease dedicated to the French crowd, to make them hope they will have 1 local player in the third round

Actually, that might have been my fault. I wanted them to play longer, so I hoped Montañes would win a few games, and he did. I think I jinxed the match! lmao

Agreed. Verdasco has to be commended for his consistency the last year or so since AO 2009. And to be fair, Serra hit some ridiculous shots early in the 3rd from the little I saw.

Idiotic comment. Did you forget the Australian Open semi last year or his great clay run this year? :smash:

And his top 5 in the race, two titles beating Top 10 players in the finals, etc.

Nando basically lost focus in the third and really the forth until the end, Serra didn't play well enough and doesn't have enough game to make it closer and really threaten. The first two sets were great tennis from Fernando. He pretty much had the win in hand and took a break for 30 minutes. Not good at all, but I don't see that happening when he plays better players. The win is what counts.

He was nice to the frech crowd .. he let Serra got a bagel
