Wow he took retired fast court specialist Mahut to four sets on clay, who would have thought! Was this the first time Mahut even played on clay?

More milestones in Melzer's best year of career - beating Dustin Brown in four sets and taking average 2 games per set from Federer who barely got through first round and barely made quarters.

Hopefully matches will be properly officiated at the US Open going forward.

Beating both Dudi Sela AND Harel Levy in the same event - amazing.

I dont know what Melzer did to you personally to make you hate the guy so much but journeymen do not put up the kind of results that this guy does (making the 2nd week at 3 out of 4 majors is incredible). You want a journeyman player check out someone like Teimuraz Gabashvilli, Marcos Daniel or Ivo Minar...or Americans like Robert Kendrick, Lester Cook, Ryler Deheart, Kevin Kim etc. Journeymen grind it out in challengers and usually do not make it out of the 1st round when they do get to majors.

Melzer is not exactly a world beater but the guy is currently ATP 13 which is sick and deserves respect, he is extremely talented.
