Pretty surpised at this result as, given current form i though florian would steam roll thiemo but im glad he didnt because i was hoping thiemo would get this win.

In the 3rd set after thiemo staved up the break at 2-3 service games went pretty quickly and mayer had 40-0 at 5-5 and ad.v but thiemo broke him anyway

thiemo is so damn terrible in tiebreakers i think he has this built in instinct to avoid them at all costs

DeBakker is the kind of player that Mayer loves to play against. But I guess HC evened things out in the end.

De Bakker grinding like millstones, favourite for the title now Blake is out :)

Surprising result, but this is a very good win for Thiemo, congrats to him. Sure he was going to lose, but he served well and was able to hold off Flo when he had break chances. Now I believe he is a legitimate threat for the title.

n1 seed Baghdatis is still in, so he is favourite. semis would be a great result for thiemo, dont expect more

Mayer is a mug.

DeBakker is definitely one of the players to come into his own sorta speak. He's the one to look out for. I see him doing some serious damage to the top players in the future :)

I say DeBakker vs Dologopolov is in the works.

Good win Thiemo! Not that surprising I think. 50-50 it was in my opinion.

Flo is not exactly Mr consistent - despite all that talent and variety he can lose to anybody with no warning.
