He played amazingly well today. I guess he is thinking this tournament might be his last for a while and so wants to make the most of it.

Very high quality match.
Congrats, Gasquet, welcome back 1-handed BH.

How many match points saved? I left the computer just after Coca-Colay held for 6/5 in the second set.

Isner saved 4 setpoints in the 2nd set, the 4th sp win excellent mix of forehand, lob and stop-volley, it wasn't enough to win in straight sets.

Mental giant. Love it, Nadine.

Great performance tonight, well done Richard!

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

No. Gasquet saved both mp's on his own at 5:6 and 7:8. One with service winner, the other one with aggressive forehand which forced Isner to an error.

Bravo, Richou!

Can't stand Isner's game - is it tennis at all?
Rather target session... boring.
