What a bad loss by Kohli.:sad:
Indoors against Chela! Come On:rolleyes: :o
Maybe he was still handicaped Vienna!
But anyway he can now count his 3 ATP 250 to his ranking!

Bit surprised he turned up at all, given he withdrew from semis last week. Perhaps wanted to just test out his fitness before Paris.

:banana: :cool:

I'm telling you all the time - you people are underestimating JIC abilities on hardcourts. He's not just a very good claycourter.

Can't believe Kohli lost.. and to Chela! :help:

It's a little bit embarrassing, Kohli.

Winning a set against Chela is something to be proud of.

Hard to read anything into this, given the health situation of Phillip from last week. Possibly still injured, who knows. However, Chela has been having a good season and isn't that bad of a slow HC player, so this win isn't a huge surprise if you think of those things, and he's better than some here think. Good return stats for Chela, good serve stats in the third set, and saved 6 of 8 break points. Congrats to the Argentine on the victory.

This is a stunning victory for Chela considering his present circunstance that he is almost at the edge of his career and where he faced a much better player on hard courts. Congrats for Chelita and has a great chance to reach 1/4 now. Well done
