well, Ferrer is doing great. He might trouble Nadal in the QF

Pics looked really good.

Russell fought a lot in the last set but it wasn't enough, Pics was in imperial form in the first two sets :yeah:

Not exactly a matchup I'd expect Mike to do well in, but at least he pushed him in the 3rd.

A Ferrer-Youzhny match would be great, I think, but yes I would love to see him take on Rafa

Uncle Toni is pullings strings to ensure a Pics/Rafa quarter final...

Russell taking the 3rd set was crucial for Nalbandian standing more chances against Ferrer (if he beats Ricardas). Too bad.

Ferrer was damn good. Russell needed divine intervention to win points for a set and a half.

Iron Mike should get lots of fans for this though, great class. There are lots of players on tour who'd have retired just to avoid 6-0 6-0 6-0.
