Expected as h... Oh I can't lie to MTF.
So damn unexpected. So many UEs for David. I seriously think he could be with the "IW Virus"

I'm not surprised at all. It's tough to expect that 30-year-old Pics will be beating on North American hardcourts players with similar ease to his wins over guys on South American claycourts.

What on earth...

Really happy for Denis, what a performance for him, but holy hell was this unexpected. Hope David isn't sick too.

Istomin took it to Ferrer that looked out of sorts, maybe played to much in MM south american swing.

Istomins 1st win over a top10 player, congrats! Ferrer never did to well here anyway.

In the bit I saw, Istomin was confident in his defensive abilities- able to outrun and breakdown Ferrer of all people. Ferru may have been ill, but Istomin is looking stronger and stronger lately.

Nice to see an offensive player hitting through a quality defender like Ferrer on these courts. He really struggled with the pace from Istomin.

Ferrer did also play well below his standards though. Lots of UEs that can't be attributed to Istomins power.

i heard that ferrer was feeling ill a couple of days ago. I think it's that nasty bug in coachella valley. hopefully everyone else can stay healthy

Ferrer's match against Dimitrov was deceiving, he wasn't that great. This shows how bad Dimitrov is more than anything

Is it a typo? he must've beaten Ferrero instead of Ferrer... did anyone notice any flying pigs over California today?

no surprise, Dave never does well in this tournie

Sunset of Age

An obvious off-day for David, that towering UE-count would never be his if he was on. There are rumours that he wasn't well either so who knows how much (or less) that may have contributed to this poor performance.
Very nice for Istomin. Always good to see fresh blood making it to latter stages of big tournaments. Congrats to him!

Istomin played a really smart match today, basically didn't give anything to Ferrer, who didn't have a good day, probably under the weather too.

With the virus, this has become a perfect tournament to make excuses.

That being said, Istomin can have very good strokes when playing well.

iriraz
03-13-2012, 08:48 PM
With this virus and so many people feeling sick it`s a good time to speculate who is sick and who is well and bet on some surprise results.Any news on Federer or Nadal how they are feeling today?

I expected and predicted a loss to Ferrer on the draw challenge, but thought he would lose to Dodig

allpro
03-13-2012, 09:07 PM
that was an impressive performance. istomin is a special player who really understands the game and instinctively knows what to do. he has high court IQ, flawless technique, easy power, and mecir-like movement -- in other words, the type of player juniors should be emulating. i expect big things from denis and i hope his mom can take him to the next level.

Chase Visa
03-13-2012, 09:15 PM
Haha wow. Not quite in the Murray/GGL range as Istomin's in better form and Ferrer isn't as good, but this is a massive shock.

Well done Denis.

Hope he plays better in Miami! Great win for Istomin :)

Why are so many surprised, he lost early here to Karlovic and Blake!:lol:

Great result from Denis, he must have been playing well. What I really don't get is why the world no 5 is put on court no 3...:confused::confused:

Because he is very solid player and good fighter, he doesn't often lose low ranked player;)

Organisers don't respect him. I think even Verdasco was on a main court in his first match :o

you might be right. Doesn't make it any less ridiculous though. I really don't like watching Ferrer, I don't like his style of play.. But he is very good, and a well deserved no 5..what does this guy have to do to be put on a showcourt? Imagine him reaching the RG semi's and having to play that match on court 10 or something...jeez
