I was a bit at the court for a few games in the first and second set and the storm delay helped Florian as he returned more solid and better after the break (he was already down break in the 2nd set). For me it looked as if his coach had advised him to take a bit risk out of his game because he seemed to overhit a bit, trying to go too close to the line with unnecessary risk because Monaco also made enough mistakes and unforced errors.
Good win overall, glad he got a bit of a break.

Best of luck to all Germans : Nicolas Kiefer | Rainer Schüttler | Lars | Florian | Tommy
Florian had an excellent win over Zabaleta in Sopot yesterday
One of his best wins this year. Now he plays Volandri which is obviously tough. Hopefully he can attack Volandri's serve as that's his best chance.
