Wasn't expecting such an easy scoreline tbh.

Oh btw I think it's "Robert" not "Roberts"

Berdych | Murray | Tsonga | Monfils | Raonic | Soderling

Indeed, very nice volleys!!!! He was being more aggressive than usual, mixing his shots and not only hitting the ball hard... and lets not forget some nice slices. He served as good as he could in windy conditions. I definitely see him improving and wouldn't be surprised if he wins Wimby this year!!

Yeah I was thinking that too. He gave Cilic a tough time in the first couple of return games but once he got broken, he kinda faded.

Nice win, but against Baghdatis it will be a lot tougher

robert's backhand was impressive at times...especially down the line. very flat shot. however, marin was too good. played a very solid match for his second round

my favorite was the worst number 3 player in the world
