He was runner-up to Nadal in the final for 3 years on the trot, 2006-8. Was a last-minute entrant in 2009 before losing in the 3rd round to his compatriot Stan Wawrinka (the only time he has ever lost to him). He skipped 2010, played 2011 but lost in the quarters to Melzer and that was his last appearance in MC to date.
