The leftie is having an excellent week easily biggest win for him.

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".

this is getting fucking irritating already i know spaniards are good on clay but it doesnt seem like anyone from another country can play on clay these days.

the sooner davydenko and del potro get back the better and ....i'd never thought id say this but federer to

Good win for Ramos-Vinolas against a top player, and good job staying in the match especially after losing those match points in the TB.

I've been monitoring Ramos for a little while...has made steady progress. Obviously his best win to date, so big congrats to him.

Yet to see him play, or even a picture of him...but that will surely change soon if he continues upwards.

Surprising scoreline, I mean especially after wasting match points in the second set, usually in those situations an underdog loses the final set distinctively.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

Ditto, look forward to seeng him play somewhere, keep seeing the name in results here and there.

Gulbis next - not impossible he could win there, as Gulbis is always prone to blow up and beat himself.

VAMOS Ramos!

I can't wait to see him as well. Does he have any special weapon or style or is he just another spanish claymug?

Now that really sounds like a choke.

I don't know if he wasted them or Gonzo saved them with great play, but quite a giant mental effort to come back from that huge dissapointment and win the 3rd set again.
Most people would lose momentum and grip of the match completely, but he didn't.

not recently no, he is improving. He has won matches this year that were a struggle. Case and point his first match of the week when he wasted all of those break points against luczak. He could have gotten frustrated and errored the game away and the old gulbis would have but he held on.

it will be an interesting match to watch thats for sure

No steady progress, this win came as a big surprise. He's had a pretty moderate year so far. But then again, you know Gonzo...

Absolutely, much better at grinding out the wins lately, but I'll believe that element of him is gone ........ well, never. See Verdasco 2nd set vs Montanes :-)
