Ramos was playing in Robert-mode (just hitting the s.hit out of every ball with 100-percent risk) to get the break. He has slowed down again, but Tomas' game is an absolute mess since he got broken. So, as you can imagine, it's mental again :o

Agreed here, but I think Ramos was great for about two, maybe three games. Since then he has slowed down again, Tomas had BP last two return games, but if you can't get your return in play against a weak serve like Ramos, you're not gonna deserve the win. Of course Ramos' confidence just gets higher every held service game, without a doubt.

Well, not that I wouldn't like him to beat Nadal for once, but this is the kind of stuff that will be shot back straight into your face if he loses early, which is always a possibility with Tomas, even against a guy like Ramos :o

2nd set is gone, this is gonna be a long morning I'm afraid (was actually looking forward to watch a bit of Dolgo before leaving for school, but not to be it seems). Return of serve is the biggest problem imho, Tomas is not able to break Ramos because he's struggling to put more than 50% of serves back into play, which is quite shocking as Ramos isn't serving that well. Has to step it up now, just shake off that damn set.

the first 2 sets were pretty close. it's not like tabasco was dominating the whole time. at least 1 set for tomic was entirely within the realm of possibilities given how tight were the 2 sets before.

Verdasco must be also injured. This is too bad, even for his standards.

Not to win the third set with Tomic serving first serves at 160 k/h and second ones at 110 k/s is absurd. Again, even for his standards.

Btw, gotta love this slow ass courts. 1 h and 7 minutes of a set between two ofensive players and what is the total winners count? 17. Wonderful.
