Dent saved 4 setpoints at 5:6 in the first (2 of those sp's in a very good style). This 6-0 was different than 6-0 in the third against Zeballos in Atlanta, Schwank was weak but competitive to the end.

It's interesting that after many years, Dent has changed his tactics this season. Regardless of the surface he was going to the net after every 1st and 2nd serve, now he stays back often even after 1st serve!

Taylor has really done well lately, QF in Atlanta, SF in Vancouver challenger, doing well at Cincinnati, and this win here. He's really stabilized his ranking and put a cushion on his potential fall with the US Open points dropping off.

Today, he served well, was a bit his and miss with the volleys and ground shots, but when he was getting them in he was controlling the points. Edu didn't do that much, served too many DFs. Congrats to Taylor for taking advantage of the draw.

Edu must be the most invisible player in the top 100. Seriously. I like him but even I completely forgot about him.

And a good prospect in the next round because Robredo is out of form and can't play against arrhythmic guys like Dent.

Players that, as you say, don't give him rhythm, and players who play attacking aggressive tennis like Dent are a major thorn in Robredo's side. Taylor should definitely win that match, or at least he is the favorite IMO.
