Very disappointing resukt from Tommy. The better player lost when he should have won this quite handily.

Mysteries of 2014 -- beats Djokovic straight sets in HC, gets minibagelled on a TB by Mahut in HC. Happy for Mahut though, as he need points clearly after some losses in the grass season. Meanwhile I wonder if this was a "tank" or not. It is just odd how he has a whiplash of form or if Mahut was GOATing.

Hard to motivate yourself for a 250 when there's a slam next week, and you've just had a career-best result the week before in a masters.

Doesn't need to be an outright tank either, he just didn't care much and it showed.

Since when does CheatBoredo have so many fans? :unsure:

Nico hasn't done much all year, but at least he takes out the trash when needed

What an embarrasing obvious tank :facepalm:

Why do these players enter tournaments knowing they will need to tank to preserve for the next week's Slam?
He could easily have lost early in both Toronto/Cincy though, and been badly needing more matches.

If you're top20 this isn't a problem, you'll get a wildcard (see Kevin Anderson). The Robredos of this world can't count on that, so they often schedule in the extra event.

Robredo is 18th in the rankings and 20th in the race.

Shocking from Robredo but still expect him to reach second week of US Open... Am absolutely delighted for Nico though after a pretty poor year... hopefully this win can boost him :)

Pretty crazy for him and Isner to play all 5 USO series events, plus the USO.
