Clay court battle on hardcourts indoors, and Potato Starach comes out on top. Impressive saving 4/4 break points in the third set. Any hardcourt QF is an accomplishment for Poto so this is a good win for him against an opponent on a decent run.

Was following it. Seemed to be a Cuevas chokefest, went like this:

Serving contest first set, went to tiebreak, Cuevas doublefaults and loses.

Cuevas dominates second set, and goes into third having not faced a bp all match.

Cuevas broken first game of third.

Cuevas has bp next game, misses it.

Cuevas has 3bps the next return game, misses em all.

Cuevas gives up and barely wins another point.

Hate to say it cos I like his game, but he's a massive choker. One of the worst bp save %s in tennis.
