Just a normal day in the office. More talented player in Portugal by some distance but he has a brain of a 2 years old child. Sad to see so much potential wasted. He could be top 50 kind of easily if he could fullfiil is potential, but instead he is strugglin to enter in the top 200 for the first time and he is already 24.
This match sums up Pedro's carreer. A win is a win, I guess. If I were a betting guy, I would never put a single cent in a match of him. Not even against Federer, not even against some some unranked club player guy.
Gil may suffer from bipolority, but it's Pedro's matches who are totally rollercoster all the time. The win against Cipolla was a very rare exception of solid showing by him. This happens once or twice per year. All ohter matches of him ends up somthing like 6-0 1-6 6-1 (winning or losing).
