jurgen melzer upsets roger federer in the monte carlo quarters



Not a fluke: Roger‘s likely as tired as we are to see this spun as Fed’s downward spiral. How about applauding Austrian Jurgen Melzer — a defending Roland Garros semifinalist — for the 6-4, 6-4 upset in the first major clay event of the year? (Flashback: This isn’t the first time Melzer’s served up a doozy.)

Draw: The other men through to the semis: Nadal (d. Ljubicic) faces Murray (d. Gil) and Melzer takes on Ferrer (who took out Troicki). More: Monte-Carlo Rolex Masters website.

  1. Booo. :-(

    Melzer did pretty well against Roger here at the USO last year. I figured he might challenge him sometime (though I’m not thrilled to have it happen when I was so looking forward to a FEDAL final).
