No thread yet?

Only followed it till 5-5 2nd set. Thought Chela would lose, but again he grinds it out. He really should against these players, but it's good he has the will to give it all against these players.

Bellucci next, that will be tough, even more because he is tired.

Kubot will fall deep after this lost, which reflects his current status, so that's good.

Q-bot led with a break of serve 3:2 in the 2nd set but it doesn't really matter, it was not a serve-match, Chela had already broken Q-bot in the 1st set twice despite losing the set 3-6.

Didn't see it, but Chela really made life hard for himself. Both had played a lot of tennis the previous day, and if he had really pushed on from his break advantage in the first set (after being down 0-2*) he'd have probably won in straights. Can't fault him on effort though.
