Dismissed way too easily, if you ask me. Disappointing result.

Figured de Bakker would recover this year and produce some breadsticks in this match, so we can finally give the right person the nickname "The Baker".

After this event, Lu will be flying to Melbourne via Greenland, Bolivia, Sierra Leone and Tonga.

Shame, I hoped Thiemo would be able to make more of a fist of this. Though I know Lu can play extremely well on his day.

If Lu was in a good day I wouldn`t say it was a surprising result. He didn`t have a good year in 2011 but he proved that he can be a top 40 ranked player and quite dangerous on hard courts too. Considering Thiemo`s present I wouldn`t say that he had a bad week.

Expected :shrug: The only time I've seen MugBakker play in Monte Carlo 2010 when Nadal thrashed him with a bagel and breadstick, I realized that he's not a very talented grinder and weak mentally on top of that.
