Yes! Verdasco had set point on his serve at 9-8 but Istomin just rattled off 3 in a row

Verdasco after missing a few setpoints, gets **9-8 with some nice play. Promptly misses volley into open court and doublefaults, then sticks a return long for the match.

I don't really get these comments when Istomin has been a strong grasscourter his whole career and is getting better and better

Verdasco is absolutely useless these days. Shows the 'depth' in tennis when he's ranked at 16 when he's done nothing since the 2010 claycourt season where he ruined his RG chances by playing 8+ hours expending physical and emotional energy in Nice. He's a mess. The movement, that backhand, tactics, hair (jesus) and defence.

Istomin was lucky to get out of there in straight sets, playing 8 feet behind the baseline every time he got a look in on a Verdasco serve.

The handshake was hardly a warm embrace, but I've seen far worse from Verdasco and especially under such circumstances, so credit to him for not completely throwing the toys out of the pram and making me cringe again.

At time, Istomin really is a good player. What's his rank?

unbelievable passing shot from Istomin when he was SP down, stretched and got it right on the line

Great result, Istomin has a really nice game especially for fast courts and Nando's attitude is pathetic most of the time.

He has the Russian's women volleyball team next to his house.

He can't deliver on both fields, the OGs are an exausting experience.

A pitty though
