Great serving from Malisse and his forehand was pretty lethal. Ebden looks like a lot of tennis recently may have gotten to him.
Malisse looks in good form to trouble Querrey big time, should be a battle
X really has his last chance to finish his career in top 30 where he belongs this year. He has only around 100 points to defend the rest of the year. And only 100 more untill Roland Garros next year. If he has a good summer, he could allready become around #40-#50 in the world, giving him some seedings at smaller tournaments in the beginning of next year.
give Malisse Russell's stamina he should be top 15 even at this age. can't say how he's going to finish this tourney though. he managed to lose to Balazs in Bucharest when he had wide open road to the final.
