Defending champion Nicolas Massu was eliminated from the Generali Open on Saturday, losing to unseeded Fernando Verdasco 3-6, 6-3, 7-5. ``I am very disappointed, because I wanted to repeat my success from last year. However, I was not playing in the same form and Fernando played excellent tennis today,'' Massu said.
