RG R2: GGL def Ilhan 6-4 1-6 6-2 4-6 13-11

Got to love the dogfight too bad not a TV court.

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

Ilhan had A LOT of chances in the 5th, didn't take them and in the end GGL took his.

Well done GGL

Nice win for GGL, I think his run ends against the Fog but always good to win a long match

I thought those DFs would cost GGL, but he's a great fighter. Great hard fought win for him.

Ilhan was dominant on serve for most of the 5th set, GGL was struggling in most serve games. But he found a way to hold on, and take the victory. Maybe that will boost up his confidence, and his form.

3h58 the time of this match.

Gotta feel for Ilhan 11-13 in the 5th? In a 17 thousand Euro match? Tough loss, really tough loss.

Marsel deserved the match, missed 5bps final set, didnt even face 40-30 untill last game and choked badly in the end.
He coud be top 100 if he won and Fognini is a type of player marsel woud beat in his sleep.
Experienced guy won in the end.

From Ilhan great serve, and GL tragedy - his serve statistics almost WTA:, so many DF c´mon not even Verdasco or Djokovic in worst form made so many
