really awesome performance by fognini, nalbandian played with his heart.. the best match of the week whatsoever
:haha: ill take that from a guy who thinks roitman is the best player ever :cuckoo:Fognini played the best match of his life and still coudnt win against a weak Nalbandian. Anyway a good match to watch thanks to the fighting spirit of Nalbandian. Fognini wont be a great player he is not the kind of player who closes out matches against great tennists.
I was at the stadium tonight, in one of the front rows. This match was AWESOME! David was losing it, Fognini was playing some unbelievable tennis, and the third set seemed to be Nalbandian's doom after he lost his serve... when they switched sides, Fabio up 3-1, the whole stadium began cheering up David with the classic "Ole ole ole ole, Daviiid, Daviiid", the sound was as loud as hell! After that, a new fit dave came into the court. Every single point was a madness, people shouting everywhere, it felt like a soccer match! The poor Italian dude couldn't even serve... I mean, hundreds of persons yelling as loud as it was possible! Even losing a first serve ended in chaos for Fognini... David was mad at the umpire, so he shouted "Vamosss!" on every winner, and everyone followed him! Noise, noise, and more noise! In the end, he couldn't stop thanking the crowd for the support he recieved tonight...
David, you are HOME!
Anyways, I'm still drunk, so it'll be better if I stop typing for a while... Oleeee oleee oleee oleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
I recorded this point with the camera..an incident during the first set tie break
Nalbandian was serving for the set *6-4 and he hit a ball deep down the baseline which Fognini awesomely responded, the umpire called "out", which wasnt.. and Nalbandian hit a top volley which was unreachable by Fognini as it died near the net.. to clinch the set..
he made the point be played again..
moreover there were controversial calls by this umpire.. really poor performance
by the end of the set (nalbi got broken 6-5** but won the tie break 7-5) he told the referee (umpire) he sucked and that he should do his job on future level.. and insulted him..
by the end of the second set .. the warning came he waited a whole set to give a warning :shrug:
