Well, at least it was better to see this match than Joshua Goodall losing with Zhang...
Chela is playing probably his last year on the tour so by this time it doesn`t matter if he lose in the 2nd round. Chela at least reached the 15th place in the world in 2004 and won 4 ATP titles and reached other 5 finals. If he was British he would be ranked as the best British player beside of Henman and Murray among "born in UK" British players.
Monaco is trying to return back and knowing that he is not going to be a big star I appreciate him for doing his best and improving his performances after a period of injuries and sickness.
