Tim paid the price for taking it easy on his opponent's serve after a break. You can't do that against Dave.

The 3rd set was similar to the third set against Benneteau.

Henman was up a break and he served for the match at 5-4. Nalby broke, held and then broke again to win the match.

I'm very happy for him and he keeps collecting race points while almost all of his close contenders lost :yeah:

Good luck against Marat.

I kind of expected him to lose the way this tournament is going :lol:

At least, David is fighting. But he will run out of luck rather sooner than later, considering he must face Safin.

david was lossing 5/4 or 5/3 (in this match)?lets recap the disaster :lol:

Henman was 4-2* and 5-3* up..
served for it at 5-4 was broke.
nalbi served at 5-5 and was 15-40 down - saved it.
henman had GP in the last game, blew it was broke .. set and match Dave 7-5.

At least Nalbandian did not lose early in this tournament. Depending upon which Marat and which Nalby show up for the quarterfinal, it could be that a dangerous opponent for Federer comes out of this match. I rate a very well playing Safin really high, but I don't trust him yet so much and I believe Safin would be easier for Federer, whereas Nalbandian can just take a racket on the right day with the right attitude and be in the grove again suddenly, especially against Federer.
