He played very well today, particularly in that second set. His bh was looking absolutely deadly.

Well done nalby :D

This was always going to be an "easy" win for Dave, regardless of his fitness "issues". I'm surprised Lapentti won as many games as he did actually.

Grosjean or O. Rochus, so I guess Grosjean :devil:

Why do people even mention this match?
Lapentti is a ghost, Nalbandian should be ashamed for losing 12 games.

Two things
First, as another poster said, sometimes Lapenti plays like he did before and David is injured, so you never know. More some things Lapenti did were really, but really good.

Second, yesterday was a masterclass of winning with the less effort. Nalbandian only put pressure in certain games. If he had wanted, probably the scor difference would have been bigger, reflecting what happened on court. But he was regulating his rate. And it's logic. Why go and put a lot of effort in breaking you opponent all the time when at the rate your doing the things you have more than controlled the game. Sometimes a triple 6-4is the most comfy result in terms of wearing out. Specially on a 2nd round of a GS in your having knee problems
