Never in doubt for Rui. And no doubt that he will win against Daniel. Easy job!

Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Rui got up over Daniel 6-3 7-6(3) and will play the winner of Starace and Andreev.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Today it's Andreev turn. It's harder. But in the end Machado will win. I'm sure he will.

Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

Rui is going from Morocco to Miami qualis to Italy challenger next week. Strange move to go to the Miami qualis, where he will probably not make it to the MD...

Re: Rui MacHado "the Scottish Number 1" Cheering Thread

That's a reason, but still. It costs money, results in jetlags, and he loses his rhytm on clay which was very good the last weeks. He could have played Marrakech and gained many points there, more than he will get in Miami probably. Than he could have taken a week off and play the Italian challenger. Strange move.
