King David played really solid.
Backhand looks amazing.
I personally think it was never in doubt, but I see some people here thought Monaco was going to win this match.
I'm really happy. I'm SURE Dave has still fire on his heart and can return to top 10.

GOATbandian is obviously planning to peak in his thirties.

I have not watched the match but I believe that this must have been the best match of Nalbandian recently :yeah:

AND Frodo was able to destroy the ring in the fires of mount doom.

Good times all round, really.

great start of the match from both players, then Monaco seemed to break down mentally from the end of first set.

Yes it was a great match for Nalbandian, esp on clay, but I don't know comparing to the match against Isner in Melbourne which was very good as well.

Fat Dave stultified Monaco who is definitely too emotional for a very experienced player.

Monaco was very solid in the last three matches he played prior to BA and I supposed he would reach the final stages in Argentina, unfortunately for him Nalbandian is the strongest unseeded player in the tournament and today turned Monaco's solid ground-stroke game into irrelevant one with a smart mixing of the pace.

Free lesson for Pico from the professor Dave.

the start of the match was very disputed, at this moment it definitely was in doubt, I thought it would be a long and great match, but then Monaco collapsed :lol:

some great shots from Nalbandian, esp dropshots

This is why I think David is great to watch (as well as the natural talent).

It's not a good day for tennis when David Nalbandian is ranked in the 80s. :( Good job David, get your ranking back!

Also, he's not fat at all! I don't know where this fat Dave meme started but he's actually pretty fit in person.

ETA: Dear god that video is gold. Pure gold.
