Surprisingly dominant from the Stefilosof; Pablo had no weapons to counter. Commendable serving and hitting, making clay look fairly fast as Cuevas was dismissed in just 1.5 hours. Well done to shake off that first round debacle.

Cuevas was playing something other than tennis. How embarrassing. Tsitsipas didn’t even need to do anything to win this match; Cuevas beat himself. At least Munar pushed Tsitsipas to 5 sets, showing that he is easy to beat.

I so love Tsitsipas winning in straights after many tennis analysts thought this would be a very difficult match for him.

22 year old showing a 34 yr old veteran it's his time to shine. Looks like normal tennis.

Excellent. Stefanos continues to beat his idol in straight sets. Just what the doctor ordered after Germany and the first round.

Now go rest up and make a deep run.

The draw is coming together for him. QF and even SF are very much on the table.

Stef woke up. He said in his interview a couple of days back that he figured out how to play on these courts in the 3rd set. I think getting that comeback win was so big for his psyche...glad that Djokovic might actually have some adversity in this half. No excuse for at least a QF here for Stef, though he really should make the semis. He needs points after some dissapointing slam tournaments this year.

Great performance by Stefanos. The Greek and Cuevas have similar styles but Stefanos just does everything so much better, especially off his serve and FH.
So after a gruelling 5-setter here comes a quick 3-setter. Good for Stef, cause he didn't waste any extra energy.
Bedene next and it's obviously the match Stef should win. Hopefully will be another quick one.
Come on!

Stefanos has so much potential. I really hope he can manage to keep it together and deliver consistently and this was a very promising start. I actually think normal RG conditions would also help Stef more with that backhand of his. It isn't easy to attack his loopy rally shot and it sets up his forehand nicely (even with current conditions to a degree as well).

Look the ACC champ is back lolz. What a coincidence that he showed up during the one slam where Rafito is favorite.

Baenas winning Shapovalov was not good news. He will be a problem in the 4th round.
Wut? First of all RCB has to get past Dimitrov, secondly, if Tsitsipas can't dispose of RCB then he doesn't deserve to go further than R4 anyway.
