Another battle won by the lone Argentinian fighter .
Surely this is the year's longest winning streak considering all levels?

Don't really know anything about this guy but I'm glad he's had some wins after what happened to him a few weeks ago.

Another proof that Argentinians have great tennis school.

Great stuff. Especially to come back from a set down. Hope he can keep it up.

Listen up. This guy's the real deal. He's got a top 20 game, but more importantly a top 10 heart/mentality. First five set match of his career and he outlasts a former #1 grand slam 20 title winner? That's proof enough for me. And look who he's playing next: PHM, great talent but lacking in the heart and mind department.

What an amazing story with this Argentinian guy

Schwank needs to improve the backhand, but he has some good potential.

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".

great for Edu! This was a hard match for him, but he must keep it "round by round" and he might do it like Vassallo A. on 2006!
