Melzer had *8-7 30-0. Clearly has his brother's choking gene.

Incredible for Prodon, who was basically retired and has now beat two good player in a row.

Prodon also had 2 mp earlier in the set. Great result for Prodon. It's nice to see an old guy fight one last time before retirement

I just looked at Prodon's activity. He hadn't played a match in almost two years before this tournament. But, he beat G. Melzer in the last challenger he did play in July 2012.

He'd play the occasional futures, but yes, for all intents and purposes Prodon has been retired for a while now. Only one event since mid-February.

he's a good player, and still just 32 :shrug: without the injuries i bet he'd be able to maintain his top 100 place, he was nice to watch in challengers, has pretty game (like most French ofc)

i hope he'll manage to qualify :hug:

that's exactly why younger players develop past their 20s. Coz supplements made it possible for dinosaurs to cut their way too often...

Prodon's probably a nice guy, but guys like him and Ivo, as much as i like the latter, are defo pulling tennis back.

Unfortunately i don't see an rational remedy to this trend..
