The only somewhat interesting match today was Hantuchova - Li. If Li winning 6-2 in the 3rd against Hantuchova is the highlight of the day at a Grand Slam 3rd round day, you know something is very very wrong. Poor spectators is all I can say.
Yea on paper I can't remember when I was this excited about a third-round day. Youzhny-Kubot was likely going to be the last great sleeper match of the tournament, and I was absolutely PRIMED to watch it. Davydenko-Monaco had potential as Pico seemed to be getting better as his last match went on, Verdasco-Koubek was interesting, and the day was supposed to be ended with a quality Hewitt-Baghdatis scrapfest in Laver and an early-round classic Haas-Tsonga in Hisense.
So one walkover, two early retirements and one straight-set scrubbing. Maybe Haas will take the last one into 5 sets. Or retire, he's already had a back massage.
