Cincy R3: Lapentti beats Verdasco 6-3 7-5

I was only able to watch the first set because they switched to Nadal's match later. Verdasco wasn't feeling comfortable with the depth of Nico's shots and was doing several errors, this was the story of the first set. In the second set Verdasco had a couple of break points but didn't manage to break Lapentti, while the Ecuatorian broke in the 11th game of the set.

Amazing week for Nico

Next is Nadal or Haas, probably the first one. The chances would be veeeeery little here, but this run is already worthy a big , defeating Cilic, Ferrer and Verdasco on the way to the quarter-finals. Well, dreaming doesn't kill anyone, so vamos Nico tomorrow!!!

Mugdasco strikes again.

It is nice, in any case to see that 32year old could play tennis at such a good level.

I was able to watch the second set on Betfair. Verdasco has no patience, Nico just kept mixing it up and Verdasco bashing the ball. Awesome run from Nico, and these QF points will come in handy.

Nico is just the coolest guy in the tour.
