Not on TV court but very impressive playing 5 sets under the extreme heat!

First ever 3rd round appearance here.

Hope this didn't drain him, needs to kick Croatian butt next round.

GLADIATORE!!!! I was so pissed at the fact this wasn't going to be televised, but it is what it is. Would've been very nerve racking. Awesome effort and sweet vendetta of last year's Wimbledon too

Showdown against Marin next and it's probably going to be very tough, just hope he isn't too physically drained.

OMG, what a heroic effort in extreme heat from both guys and Seppi especially
Seppi's fitness is supreme thesedays...

Must of done the trick telepathically

He'll need a heck of a massage to recover and get ready for 3rd with Čilić. He should be fine in two days, except if that match goes to distance again.

With also Kavčič winning this is just a fantastic day for me. *party*

Seppi matches Chardy by reaching the 3R of all slams (incredibly similar slam record, actually).

It was more taxing on Kavcic than Seppi yesterday. Seppi's match was 4 hours 7 minutes while Kavcic's was 4 hours 52 minutes. Also, Kavcic's match was at a little later time, i.e. hotter time of the day.

Thank you ATP tour for this sharing this pic Rawrrrrrr...



Yes, this seems relatively fast five-setter. Three tiebreaks in it and still just over 4 hours.

seppi gets his revenge in a real dogfight and under brutal conditions - too bad it wasn't televised . tough loss for the menace but he’s been playing some quality tennis and is off to a decent start this season.
