Clay court god Spadea wins!

He won against Albert Costa 6-4 7-6 6-2 which is not bad at all. The American men are actually doing some damage compared to yesterday. I don't consider Roddick's win to be as impressive.

I definitely consider this to be an impressive win, despite Costa not quite being the clay court beast of old.

I agree that Costa is not the player he once was but it is still quite an achivement for a player who thrives on fast hard courts.

Vincent is pretty damn comfortable on the dirt for an American.

Impressive victory. Would not have given him much of a chance.

Caught a short interview with Vinnie after the match. He was subdued, thoughtful and complementary toward Costa. Who knew??

That's a great win. Strange that Costa was made to play on such a remote court, btw.

Albert Costa may be good but he is not really comparable to Nadal or Moya anymore though I agree he would have been a better choice than Spadea--just about anyone would have been a better choice.
