Nice QF: Dolgopolov def. Ferrer 6-4 1-6 7-5

Wow, great!

Second set was horrible though, Dolgopolov 3/18 winners/UE and Ferrer 3/8 :unsure:. But the third set was very entertaining, great shots from Dolgo.

Lovely to see Dolgo snatch a win over a 'big name'! :bounce:
Don't get me wrong, I love Pics too, but I'd really like to see Dolgo do well at this 'minor' tournament.

Bad quality match though - from what I saw, way too many UEs left the rackets of both players, Ferrer's just a few (many, in that 1st set!) more. Can't help but get the impression that Ferrer wasn't all too seriously trying in this match (why was he here in the first place? :confused:), and I'm sure he'll do better at RG. At least I hope so.

Dolgopolov is simply a top 5 mover.

Dolgo was very good in the third set, so deserved victory. Ferrer wasn't as good as yesterday unfortunately.
Good that he can rest up now.

The margin for error in Dolgo's game is so slim :o

But he's finding some form which is good to see.

Great result. For both, actually. Ferrer should rest a bit for RG.

Get some rest Ferru. I want to finally see you make a QF at the French!

Well done to Dolgo. Could take the title now!

Glad this ugly ugly sickness is gone :p. Without it he'd be a top ten already :D Looks good for RG now, I feel calmer...

2nd set a Dolgo classic though.

not a good match from both, but much better from Dolgopolov compared to previous showings

in the 3d set Dolgo won 15 consecutive points on serve since the start of it with good serving and great display

Ferrer out of gas before RG as usual. Learn some scheduling, dude.

obvious tank ahead of RG.He'll go to Paris and get some rest and he'll be ready :shrug:

obvious tank ahead of RG.He'll go to Paris and get some rest and he'll be ready :shrug:Yeah I was thinking that, Ferrer was hardly pumped or anything in the 3rd and he really just threw away the match point...

A typical Dolgo 2nd set :lol:

Impressive though, didn't think he could do it. Although of course David could've been a little less motivated since RG is next week

I thought that was obvious.
Doesn't take anything away from Dolgo's victory though.

Probably best that you lost here, David. Pick it up for RG :yeah:

I don't understand why Pics even bothered to play there before RG. Why would he waste his energy before a major. Anyway, congrats do Dolgopolov.

i really thought ferrer was the better player in the 3rd set. but he just couldnt handle dolgo's 2nd serve enough and dolgo got enough big serves in to hold on

Not overplaying, he was sick last week, probably used this as a way to get some match practice in before RG. Obvious tank ;)

Of course it does (unfortunately), no matter how you take it, you cant decide whether or not it takes anything away.

It isn't a big problem, at least Ferru won't be tired in RG. :D
Congrats Dolgopolov! :D Their H2H was 3-0 before this match.

I guess this is the perfect outcome for anyone who enjoys both players. ;)
David won't be too tired to perform well at RG, and perhaps... (~hopes!~) Dolgo will be able to take this title. :D

I'm not fan of Dolgopolov but I like his talent. Good to see that he can beat top 10 player from one site. Ferru has enough point from 250 tournament and he had enough clay match recently.
I think Dolgopolov will play final at least but he has chance for winning this of course.

how did dolgo break him ? some consecutive bp chances or just one and only?
