:sad: Nico. It was never a given Nico would win but I did think it would be closer than this. Nico was not aggressive and missed way too many break chances. Marat wasn't serving that well, but converted 6/7 chances.

Congrats to Marat on a great win :hatoff: but its not over yet! Gonzalez is waiting!!!:devil: :fiery:

Marat was superb today... Nico didn't play bad, but it hadn't much to do to today. :sad:

If only Marat play like today on the circuit.... :rolleyes: :smash:

Good stuff by the big Bear and the whining about the court might stop for a few minutes.

Gonzo is waiting for you.

The result (scoreline) is shock for me. I was hoping Marat could upset Massu but never expected him to play so good :eek:
Bravo!

The score is a bit surprsing. Gonzalez will need some help, he will not be able to win DC alone.

Word "upset" has different meanings, you know...

P.S.
btw, Roddick beating unknown Czech is hardly an upset either.

Sorry, but Marat defeating Massu ain't an upset.

but in Chile against 10.000 chilean people in chilean crowd is completely different. Maybe not a huge upset, but it's an upset too.

I agree, the scoreline should be closer.

but in Chile against 10.000 chilean people in chilean crowd is completely different. Maybe not a huge upset, but it's an upset too.

Yeah, but Massu was faltering playing there. I watched the match against Roitman, then against Horna... ;)

Roddick beating anyone on clay is an upset.

Not sure how Safin played but I have a friend who is there and told me that Massu just did not play very well.

It was a good Marat today, and a dispirited and tired Massu after he missed his chance in the 2nd set.

Safin played solid, didn't let Massu to get into the match, the 6-2 in the 2nd set doesn't reflect the level of that set, Massu really fought to get the break back but like I said, Marat was the best player.
In the 3rd, Massu was playing solid 'till *2-0 30-00, after that, He completely self destructed. :(

Alonso - that's what I was getting also from reading the comments on terra and also from posts. Didn't see the match, but those were the general opinions that I've read.

Nico didn't play badly for most of the match. But Marat is a great player - didn't let Nico into the match - he just played better than Nico did. Pretty much what Nico said too afterwards.

EDIT - forget to say congrats to Marat - always one of my favorite players - good to see him in top form - and wish he'd play like that in regular tournaments. Just wish he didn't play so well against Nico. :sad:
