Re: Michael Russell
Russ lost the 1st set 6-2 but it went for 53 mins. It's tough against Monfils the guy is a panther and will run so many balls down and Russ made 13 unforced errors and didn't serve at a high enough percentage, but there were plenty of long rallies and some great defence from these guys.
Today is another day and Russ has to get the balance right between attacking and defending cause Monfils will get more shots back than usual, but hope he can turn it around and if not win make Gael work very hard for the win.
“ 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
I definitely would have preferred Gaba winning as he needs the points much more, but Jan would have beaten him anyway. I expect Hajek to destroy Machado, like 6-1 6-2.
