Expected Janko was playing for WTF ticket + no matter how slow this surface is, still it is HC and indoors, agressive player with bigger serve is Janko so he was supposed to win this, even Monaco winning 2nd set was nothing, i was sure Janko serving 1st in 3rd is safe bet that Monaco at some point will get broken - it happend Janko was better player.

Everybody here has same reputation/means nothing
