the third set was indeed a chokefest. davydenko can't find form which is disappointing.

Davy's TB loss streak now at 13, hasn't won one since Halle. WTF is going on there?

Every time I think, "this is it. Hell has frozen over. Albert Montañes has choked." ..... He hasn't.
11 straight tbs lost, Davy :help:

Monty served for the match twice and wasted 2 MPs before the last tiebreaker. Davy is really useless right now in clutch moments, though.

Fate has clearly decided that Isner is just too good at tiebreaks, it needs an anti-Isner or the universe will explode.

those bad wrist injuries are the ending of many great talents

if Denko of 12 months ago played this match.. he wins 6-1 6-1

it's sad to watch Davy these days knowing how much more he is really capable of. A normal Davydenko would have no trouble with HC mug Montanes in the past...not so much anymore

Montanes a mini-mental killer, never in doubt but Davydenko's losing streak in tie-breaks is extraordinary given the fact he was the best tie-break player last season :lol:

Montanes for the tittle here.

My god, Kolya. It's just...embarassing. Tennis is in huge danger in Montpellier, someone has to rescue this event and throw out the trash.

I hope Davy plays himself back into form sooner or later. He may not reach top 10 again, but at least he should be einning more consistently against players he should beat. The result would be no surprise if it were on clay, but it's a disappointing loss on indoor hard for the defeding WTF champion.

With results such as this Monty, will probably break into the top 20 before too long.

Pretty entertaining match of OK quality. Davydenko still has game left, but his confidence is completely shot. He was right near the finishing line a few times and just couldn't step over. He served great in the first 1.3 sets, was up a set and a break, but by the end of the second set, his serve started going downhill, and that really cost him. Montanes just held on and competed well, and started returning better and hitting with more authority when behind. Davydenko is just too inconsistent in all areas right now, his returning has dramatically declined, and what made him so good, his ability to take the ball early and generate so much pace by redirecting the pace of others, is just not there anymore. Right now, he's maybe a top 45 level player, and now you have to wonder, when will he be back, if ever.

Congrats to Albert on the great victory and indoor SF.

I know that Davy is not the same player that he used to be since he returned back but people should give credit for Montañes who is having a great week beating players that are better than him on hard indoor courts like Llodra, Clement and Davydenko now. Ljubo is the favourite to win today but the chances of a player like Montañes should never be underestimated.

You talk a load of bull. Montanes is not useless indoors, he's gotten better and is now a great hardcourt player......so shut up, you are clueless if you think Montanes is useless indoors :)
He has. That much was obvious. Davydenko was even worse, though, luckily for Albert.
Montanes doesn't choke.....so, no....it's not obvious.

Montanes doesn't choke.....so, no....it's not obvious.You seriously felt the need to bump this irrelevant thread? I won't waste time discussing with you whether Montañes can choke or not. When it comes to your favorite players you are as blind as SdG is concerning Nadal.

What? :confused:

Montanes doesn't choke...everyone knows that....he didn't choke here, he has never choked and he isn't usless on indoor anymore.....nothing more to say....
