St Petersburg R2 : Bautista-Agut def. Gabashvili 6-3 6-4

First ATP quarter final for Bautigol. Gabashvili tried to ballbash his way through but Bautigol defended too well.

Now plays the Fog in the quarters.

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

Yes GaBASHvili's forehand was 50-50 but Bautista-Agut's defence was too much for the ballbashing game of Gabashvili. It also didn't help that Gabashvili was having trouble ending points at the net

Those stars... Where did they come from? Are they friendly?
