Agassi edges out Robredo 6-7 6-3 6-2

Andre Agassi had to dig deep against an inspired Tommy Robredo to win. Robredo had 6 break points on Agassi's serve at 1-1 in the 2nd and could not convert. From there it was Agassi all the way. Robredo backhand was outstanding though, standing up well to the Agassi barrage. Bring on Safin!

If Agassi didn't make those painful errors in the tiebreak, he would have won in straights. Ughhhhhh I just hope he has enough energy to payback Safin for his Aussie loss.

You can see Marat as a semi-spaniard so there might be some hope

Agassi won as expected, but it seems Tommy made him work hard for it.

Re: Agassi edges out Robredo 6-7 6-3 6-2

it was a great match the first 2 sets but once agassi broke in the 1st game of last set, the writing was on the wall. tommy played unbelievably well in the first set and a bit. he was up 4 it. but fatiuge set in i s'pose. david beckham was there, as was fernando torres. andre was not impressed with the models once again...!

hope marat wins now, cos that would be some semi final!

How many times must we of shot nerves witness the undoubted pain & suffering of muppets everywhere before we stand up against the cavemen??

One muppet, who wishes to remain anonymous, has this to say: "You know, I uhhhh cannot stay all the time at the you know, base of the line. Too much uhhhh pression."

congrats Andre!

congrats to Tommy also; honestly I didn't expect him to give Andre so much trouble.

Yeah Tommy played amazing in the first set, best i've ever seen him play.

He looked totally exhausted midway through the 2nd set, he had to run so much, that i'm not surprised Agassi won so easily in the end.

Andre wasn't happy at the models again Madrid website says "Agassi had time even to get mad with one of the models"

Well Done Andre

Not stop getting annoyed with the models though

Robredo has finally stopped trying to hit a forehand on every shot while his backhand is just as good

Tommy did really well - glad that he pushed Agassi. He played better than expected

Rafa Nadal Juanqui Ferrero

Marat Safin Carlos Moya Feli Lopez Nando Verdasco Richie Gasquet

Robredo Guga Garcia-Lopez Ferrer Tomeu

Interviewer: It surprises people how well you get on with Nadal
Carlos Moya: I can't conceal that. I love him very much and I knew that one day he would be better than me. He's on another level.
