Korolev def. Gimeno-Traver 6-7(8) 7-6(2) 6-3

delighted about this result

Korolev missed at least 4 SP in the TB of the first set and then he saved MP at 4-5 (dunno how many)

hopefully Zhenya can keep it going

Wow, could only follow this one on the SB, but it sure looked like an interesting match!

Congrats and thanks for the cash, Korolev!

Zhenya, must have been a great and funny match to watch, you´re one hell of a choker, but also one hell of a fighter

Pity for Dani, I hope some day he will have a big run in some clay tournament, hope it´s not too late

I went for 2 hrs and 45 minutes, that's value for money and Korolev had enough chances to win that first set, but he kept fighting hard.

He will sleep well tonight, just hope he can play well against Haase tomorrow.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

See his Las Vegas match vs Gonzo from this year.

But for this result!! I was following the SB and saw he was up 6-2 and 7-6 in the 1st set TB only to lose it. Hope he moves on far in this tournament.

Great to see Zhenya doing well here, hopefully he has enough in the tank to try tomorrow against Haase. Excellent fight
