Great result for tennis and Fat Albert's first title this year and most importantly he avoided the turkey status.

H2H was something like 6-0 in Robredo's favour at ATP-CH level plus more victories in futures and juniors for Robredo.
First title for Montanes in more than 2 years.

Albert has lost a little bit of speed after the hernia problems and he was hardly missing.

Very strange that for the most of the match Boredo was the crowd favourite. Not sure if he bought everyone from Hostalric in the crowd but at the end they appreciated Montañes performance.

Obviously more people know Robredo, as a former top player. No clue why anyone is surprised by this?

Robredo is never a crowd favourite anywhere outside of Spain. Don't be bitter Montañes has had injury and form issues as well.

So Robredo is more well known, doesn't mean he is ever a crowd favourite outside of Spain, especially with all his bad form. Montanes only beat the better Italians this week.

being crowd favourite or not depends on the opponent he's facing. in this case it's really no surprise more ppl were rooting for Robredo.

Robredo was top 5 in 2006. Strong era Fedgod played in.

Wasn't Nadal #2? Such difficult competition the Spaniard had facing off against peak Robredo. No wonder he only has 2 Wimbledons with Robredo standing in his way on the grass courts.

Nadal was #2 back then largerly due to his clay prowess, he was still improving on other surfaces, while Olderer was in his absolute prime beating down on gutless mugs.

The point is Nadal and Federer share the same era. Federer only won 5 of his slams before Nadal got his 1st. They are separated by what 5 years in age? That does not constitute a separate era.

Nadal is not of Federer's generation. He started early, but it was mostly on clay and to a lesser extent on grass. He didn't reach #1 until 2008. Olderer's generation = Hewitt, Roddick, Nalbandian, Blake. Nadal's generation is Murray, Djokovic, Del Potro.
