RG R2: Stakhovsky def. Nishikori 6-1 3-6 6-3 7-6 (3)

Best result for the Ukrainian here, never a bad day when a Brad Gilbert coached player loses.

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".

Stackhouse is one of the toughest players mentally.

Mental giant! Another TB won.

Had 4-2 and bp in the 4th, Nishi got to 6-5 and 0-30 on Stak serve. But he served it out and was flawless in the TB.
Very good result, on fire when going into his grass season.

He had a break in the 4th, then got broken. Played a top quality tb, probably won't go further but 3rd round is good enough.

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".

Nishikori seems to go backward technically. His groundstrokes are just average now and he seems to have lost a bit of fire/creativity. He should get rid of Gilbert/Bollettieri.

Re: RG R2: Stakhovsky def. Nishikori 6-1 3-6 6-3 7-6 (3)

Something really relatable about the Ukrainian's game. He does everything well but nothing outstanding, he really has to set up his points and he fight well, and he beats who he's supposed to and occasionally beats someone he's not supposed to.

Nishikori is the opposite, he has no outstanding shot and a lot of good ones but he's been pampered and hyped his whole career and has only disappointed. Good for the game Stakhovsky won, I hope he pulls the upset on Ferrer even though the chances are slim

Nah, Stakh is definitely mentally strong, good TB break player and a 4-0 record in finals. Also, this looked like a great match, annoyed I missed it
