Start of 2nd set...

Montanes 4 bps, misses em all, Serra holds. Given Serra's mentality, these were virtual mps. 0-1
Montanes doublefaults on bp. 0-2
Serra holds to love. 0-3
Montanes broken again. 0-4
Serra holds to 15. 0-5


3rd set was a serving contest, first bps were double mp for Montanes, missed em both, then in tiebreak went straight to 1-6.

Montanes 2/13bps. Mental strength already on holiday, I guess.

Mentally, Monty isnt as good off clay. Not bad still though. 1st ever match lost after MP. Now like 12-1.

Not sure that's true recently, he was ultra clutch vs Llodra in Montpellier for example - courts there a lot quicker and harder for his game too. Also beat davy from a set down, won next two tiebreaks, and gave soderling a bit of a fright in New York also.

Montanes's first defeat after a match point up :worship:I thought tennis guru Typhoon said it was impossible for Albert to ever choke, so you must be wrong about this, Voo. ;)

I know only one ATP match in which Montanes was two points away and lost, it was in Barcelona 2005 when he was serving at 5:4 (30-15) against Ferrero but lost 3-6 6-3 5-7.

Probably this year was long for Albert, he tired mentally.

Davy is not a reference, everybody beats poor old Davy now, even this joke of a player Simon.

Oh well, it happens even to the best mental giants. :shrug:

But those two MP were on opponents serve, so that should make him feel a bit better.

I wonder if he knows about this great record he has. :)

This wasn't a choke.
Not all matches lost are chokes, imbecile :rolleyes:

Serra played better on those points.
Still, this is a bad defeat.
Who loses to Serra these days?

He didn't "toy" with him... Montanes is just an ultra-choker
Serra-Berdych next....no....OH NO :scared::scared:

Are you on a mission to make everyone on MTF hate you? You claim that you're not aiming to win the ACC, but I see no other explanation for this behavior. Seriously, if you're not intentionally campaigning, then I suggest you think for a second about what your goal is for making these posts.

He's on a rampaging campaign trail today. :lol:

I'm sorry to see that you were caught in its wake.

I've been getting a lot of guff as well (not from Typhoon) for saying that my boy Nole choked a bit in the third set of the Basel final. What can you do? :shrug:
