Damn it! Why does Xavier always blow it when he makes it to the final of a tourny. Good tournament for him of course but this was an opponent he could beat. :sad:

Honestly, I'm more surprised he beat three seeded players en route to the final... but anyway, well done! :)

he had some very bad blisters and couldn't run as free as he would like...
it's sad this has to happen in another lost final, but hey... he did have a great week and if he was 100% healthy I'm quite sure he would have beaten Serra

Congrats to Florent, he played well all week :)

I have to say Malisse is a big choker though, he needs to work on his mental toughness in finals. He played terrible, nowhere near the standard he did the other day against Berdych. He had a bit of a problem with movement towards the end, but before then he was moving well and had so many bps but couldnt take them, including 0-40 in the first game. I dont think the blisters are an excuse, and if he'd played even 75% of the standard he had yesterday he would have won.

Same thing about Hrbaty, who couldnt keep the ball in the court the other day. I think they both obviously felt the pressure of being favoured to beat Serra and couldnt deliver.

I'm really sad for Malisse. I mean he's one of the more talented players on the tour, he's got those great hands but the problem is in his head. :sad:

Well done Florent, anyway. :) You deserve what you get now. But it's much more because of working hard. Well done.
