Don had 5-*3 in the second set tiebreak, was mostly dominant on serve in the second set but didn't win another point, then fell behind a break to start the third, so I was worried this would be another loss exposing his mental fragility. But he came back and broke three times in the third set to win it. Obviously not the best opponent but a good win nonetheless.

Serving at 72% is definitely a positive sign for Don. Hope he keeps that up going forward.

The rise of the Don. Good for him, seems to be decent on the grass to be honest. Served well.

The Don to strike come Wimbledon.

Team Judy beware.

Last week he lost 3-6 1-6 to Niland, so I was obviously expecting nothing today. I don't think he's that great on grass, he got a good draw against a clay courter and took advantage. He has improved mentally, although he's still fragile, he's got more fight and that definitely helped.

Glad he got a main draw win. Beating Anderson or Ivo on grass next round I think will be impossible. So I'm happy with the win.

Glad to see him get a win. Any win is good for him.

Very strong recovery after blowing 5-3 up in the TB and going a break down in the 3rd.

Tough draw next round, will be a good challenge.
