Disastrous match, but the Portuguese fans won't mind. Joao into his first career ATP QF.

He was grabbing at his ankle in the third set, but I think with the rain delay, he simply didn't want to continue and decided to retire. A lot like Djokovic last season vs Murray in Cincinnati.

Istomin definitely had problems with his movement, you could see that early in the second already.

This and last week has been a lot of challenger level tennis, the best I have seen quality-wise were the two Tommy Has wins against Berrer and Tsonga.

Tournament Twitter said he said it was his back--but he's still down to play doubles tomorrow.

Marco Chiudinelli ▣ Simone Bolelli ▣ Gerard Granollers ▣ Joao Sousa
