RG R3: Söderling def. Montañes 6-4 7-5 2-6 6-3

Good workout for the Toad.

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".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

It was good for him to fight through some adversity. Great chances to reach the quarters.

Didn't see the match (thanks for that eurosport) but I'm happy with the result. Montanes is the type of player that you need to play good to win against.

Next match will be interesting

Robin played decently today, patchy but pretty good in general. But it's not enough to beat Roger. He just simply had too much power for Montanes. I think he is the favorite over Cilic but that's a dangerous match for him.

Albert gave it his all and played decently as well, he just doesn't have enough to beat Soderling playing well. All in all, it was a nice match. Congrats to Soderling.

As expected, Robin gave a lesson to another Spanish mug in RG.

Damn. I really thought Montanes would do the upset.

Re: RG R3: Söderling def. Montañes 6-4 7-5 2-6 6-3

Two players who had not dropped a set, the lesser on fire, was always going to be a good match. 2nd set.... almost went to 5



Matosevic, Hanescu, Lorenzi, Kukushkin, Chiudinelli, Gulbis, Bozoljac, Gabashvili, Hernych, Brown, Garcia-Lopez, Rosol, Zeballos, Istomin, Kohlschreiber, Tursunov, Robert, Gonzalez, Monaco, Thiem, Seppi
