Great work.

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 play by Cuevas! Almagro really impatient in the rallies. He couldn't handle the big kicker out wide..

He should be able to beat either PHM or Troicki..

Very intelligent tennis from Cuevas today. I'm liking him more and more. Still yet to drop a set, and he definetely has a shot to go the full distance here.

He played very well today

Mucho was useless, seemed to have no forward plan at all beyond moving the ball around and hoping Cuevas would self-destruct.

Cuevas can have weeks like this but the question for him is can he do it more consistently - he has the tennis to be higher than 107 but not the consistency so far.

Vamooooos

Great match from Pablo, he's serve is doing just great, only got broke once so far... BH beatiful as always, but his FH still needs to get powered-up a bit. Some points on second set were fantastic, S&V on second serve included

Can beat either PHM or Troiki playing like this IMO, though I rather it was Mathieu
And again... vamooooooos

Cuevas kicks ****. That it should be such a ridiculous fat **** such as Mugro's he's kicking only makes it more pleasing.
