AO R2 Monaco def. Delic 6-3. 7-6(8-6), 5-7, 6-7(8-10), 8-6

Judging by the score it seems like this was match of the day so far. A bit of a roller coaster too. Monaco was up a break in the third and served for it at 5-3 before Delic staged a major comeback. Amer broke for 2-0 in the fifth but was broken back immediately and Juan was rock solid on serve after that. It's too bad Amer couldn't pull it off. He really had the momentum going into the fifth especially after breaking but credit to Monaco for hanging tough.

Why didn't they have any cameras on that court. What a battle by these two guys (both nice fellows from what I hear) and too bad there had to be a loser. Kudos to Delic for fighting back. I was worried for Pico though- this type of loss would have been hard to take after being up two breaks in the third.

Did anyone see it?

Delic also had 2-0 in the 5th

I wish we could have seen this and I hope that someone who was there eventually shows up to tell us about it. I am so impressed and so pleased that Amer put up a fight and got into this match. This type of fight, plus winning 4 matches in a row is such a turnaround for him and the way he played in the second half of last year. I hope he can keep it going and get back into the top 100.

Congrats to Monaco. :)

That is what I meant to say...hee! :eek: A break or two in the third is quite a bit different than in the fifth. I think both player held serve in the fifth until Pico finally broke and then served for the match.

Fee - it would be nice for Amer to have a good year. And I hope that Pico does as well. :)

An actual epic match for once. All the other ones have been WTA-like scores.

Good to see Pico pulling through and good fight from Delic. :yeah:

Yes, I saw it packed crowd, the Bosnians made plenty of noise and were very fair and Delic really appreciated their support. It was played in great spirit and Monaco should have won this in 3, but not getting 1st serves in when serving for the match and too much rallying up the middle and Delic took advantage of it and was able to hit some big forehands and served well.

Monaco is a big fighter and showed it again and came through as he should have done earlier.

Wow I was expecting an easier victory for Pico than that. Thankfully he got the job done in the end, but boy did he make life difficult for himself. He has reached the 3rd round at Melbourne for the first time in his career.

It's lovely that Monaco won. He's my discovery of the Australian Open 2008. Lovely guy, and I'm glad he got through what was obviously a tough match for him.
