Very good comeback win from Phau, he has now beaten both Becker and Almagro from a set down and 2-6 deficit in both matches, Almagro will be disappointed but good win for Bjorn. Phau faces Querrey next.

Almagro saved 4 mp's but at the end it was meaningless. Almagro is a huge choker, the guy struggles to win something tight

Could not get a live stream, very eratic i suppose, he did come back from 2-5 in the third set but then threw it away by losing the match.

Murgo cant beat mugs on hardcourt...he can play good against Federer or Murray but will most likely lose to anyone in top 100 on hard

I guess this is a joke, because Almagro always wins close matches. Except for today.

Looks like Phau has got it back on track. Too bad he faces Querrey now though...

why its too bad that he faces Querrey? i mean querrey is not real deal, can lose any top 100 player, and btw he beat querrey last year.

Gotta get that, gotta get that-that-that-that-that... Boom, boom Phau... boom, boom Phau...

Well done, Bjorn. Now take out Querrey next.

Oh and Nico, why are you even seeded for the USO?

Vamos Rafa
