For those interested here is a small recap on the match.

AMS Madrid recaps

Gaudio-Acasuso I had a friend on that court and I was calling him to give me his impressions. He said first set was pretty even. Gaudio was the better player from baseline, Acasuso was again playing 100 m behind baseline, but he served well and attacked several times the net with not too much success as he missed some easy volleys. A couple of funny things Gastón said:

"¡Si querés hablar por teléfono salite fuera!" "If you want to talk by phone, go out!" when a phone bell rang when Gaudio was about to serve. As always, some blah blah with himself and coach and some complaints to the line refs and umpire. 2nd set, looks like Gastón was mentally out and was broken 3 times.

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
