I didn't see the final set. I only saw the 4th and thought Machado had a chance.

4 hours, 10 minutes - the longest match of tournament so far. Verdasco had MP in the fourth set tie-break. Surprisingly tough battle through 4 sets.

clearly out of energy by Rui in the 5th set...he's not used to play 5 sets and came from the quali...

great fight by him anyway, had chances to win the 2nd set, saved a MP in the 4th set TB...


congratulations to Rui!!

Breezes? Are you insane? Machado could have won this. Had a set and a break up in the second set, and took it to a fifth.

Machado clearly ran out of gas in 5th set and Nando picked up his game in the 5th. But I only saw the TB and first 3 games of 5th set.

Both players had so many ups and downs in almost every set that I lost count. Rui has such a vicious BH CC it is almost insane. Even Nando who is lefty couldn't reach it with his FH.
