And in reply to your earlier statement: I don't doubt he was dreadful beyond words. Those days happen, and they're happening a bit too frequently as of late. It's back to Challengers very soon.
No no, I understand. Flavio is a really nice guy. I'm not sure about this incident.

I like him a lot, mainly because he's nice and has an interesting style. Everyone makes mistakes though, but who knows, maybe the 5 points he saved himself from playing yesterday helped him. I didn't see it so I can!5 make a definitive judgement.

And you're one of the most rational supporters of any player on MTF!

Have you considered he might have been playing like shit?

Injury isn't a problem... the guy has no basic idea about patience and point construction.

cilic v van der merwe was the only "real" one in recent years.

merwe was ranked 128 at the time.

I think I read he was injured in the match but it wouldn't surprise me if he wasn't. when his serve goes missing and his confidence drops, he looks like the worst player to ever pick up a racquet

The funny thing is Leonardo Mayer is third seed here so he got a bye into the second round and now a virtual bye into the QF of an ATP tournament. Not bad for a player ranked 64.
