I think a thread should be good for the whole draw.

Badass team Dlouhy/Petzschner with strong results so far, just like I was hoping. Too bad Paes returns next week.

This scoreline was quite shocking:
(7)Max Mirnyi/Andy Ram (BLR/ISR) d. (WC)Rafael Nadal/Francisco Roig (ESP) 4-6 6-3 (10-8)

Frank/Pierre-Ludovic :) Great match.
Lukas/Petz were amazing! I really enjoyed their tennis, especially Petz's. Such a sweetheart! :hearts:
Simon/Paul :bigcry: Really tough match, was probably the match of the tournament so far ! It was tight, really tight, and lots of the rallies were quite long and impressive. I felt bad that they were on the losing end though!

Mirnyi/Ram really struggled :o

Davydenko/Kunitsyn :rolls: What a bad team.

Mirnyi/Ram just smacked Dlouhy/Petzschner 6'2, 6'3.

Ram/Mirnyi were solid in that match, Lukas kind of lost it a few times, but mostly it was Philipp - he hurt his knee a bit and was visibly tired (two long matches yesterday and Nadal today... he was out of sorts)
There was no reason to play that match today, there was time for it tomorrow... disappointing. But I see a bright future for Philipp, definitely.

But was there a timeout at 1-1? Nothing happened for 8 minutes.

Yeah, well that's when Philipp's knee started acting up. They called the trainer who was quite a ways away, and he taped his knee. (It was later removed though, we noticed)
Lukas was really pissed in the second though, he slammed his racket so hard against the back of the court - luckily no one was there, they would have died. At the end of the first, Phil was mad too, he hit a ball into the crowds - but there was no one in the stands, and it hit Ram/Mirnyi's coach :lol: He felt TERRIBLE
