Carsten getting bagelled on grass with his serve. Should be ashamed, Gurlova.

a bit of a choke in the 3rd, but solid nonetheless...NID

This Berankis is good.

For a short guy, this Berankis is really good. He served very well for someone his size. Really effective against the more fancied Ball and fun to watch.

Ricardas just totally outplayed Ball in the first two sets, Carsten was coming to net on weak approach shots and getting passed easily, and was horrible from the baseline. Ricardas got passive in the last 2 sets but Ball made to many mistakes, and Ricardas' return of serve helped him throughout the match.

Very impressive, he'll likely play Feli which will be difficult, but he's had a successful tournament already.

Yeah, he has a very good serve for a short guy, like Grosjean per instance in that way.
