I only saw the third set today. Apart from some strong serving, a pretty bad match with lots of UEs flying around. Nando wasted a million BPs at 2-2 but never got into trouble on his own apart from at 6-5, in which he was very close to losing but Struff wouldn't let him and missed two second serve returns in a row. He then gifted the tiebreak.

Glad for Verdasco, but boy does he have to step it up to be a contender here.

Glad he pulled it off.
Needs to rest and hydrate properly before playing the madman from Serbia.

I thought the 5th game in the 3rd set would be crucial (read: in disfavour of Verdasco) but Verdasco held and won the TB pretty easily.

I haven't seen much of him lately but I was a bit worried he'd lose it from there too. He actually followed it up with three love service holds.
