Would have been nice for Istomin to finally grab a title, but nevermind - same goes for Q-bot (who massively served himself out of trouble at the end). Only saw the final set from 4-2 - decent quality match?

Great match from Lukasz...Too sexy with his new bandanna:wavey:...Istomin is mugalicious these days...Surprised Luke didn't straight set him...1st set could have gone either way but Lukasz played really well throughout the whole match:worship:....Could be a good draw for him and he needs the points, so win-win for him:cool:

Denis, this defeat was OK because he played all days at DC so he was so tired:unsure:
Take a rest and good luck rest of the season:)

Istomin is about as far away from winning a title as it's humanly possible to be. In horrendous form right now.

Not surprising. Typical post DC result.

Always good to see this mindless ballbasher lose. Istomin belongs on the WTA tour with his lack of technique and variety.

i see a lot of potential in this denis but, like many others before him, he'll probably never fully develop it.
