Just an incredible choke. Coric has a lot of heart, but this loss is all on Robredo.

Sock is going to make the 4th round :facepalm:

Robredo led 2/0 in 3rd and lost 2/6 then led 4/3 with break in fifth to lose 4/6. I have to admit, coric showed true spirit. two return winners in final game (although Robredo serve was pathetic at this point)

Ugh, Robredo, not watched the match, but he usually eats the youngin's up but it seems his clutch of 2013 is all but seems gone. Good record on 5th Sets but after breaking in the 5th Set didn't win a game. Anyway, good to see another Under 21 player make it deep. Maybe there is hope for the future after all in terms of young high ranked players.

Robredo made a real mess of this match. He should have won it, but he was gifting service games left, right and centre. It's a shame too, as seeing these youngsters losing is always a treat, considering their arrogance.

Same.

That showed incredible mental and physical fortitude. To beat the wily, super-fit vet Tommy Robredo in 5 sets is no easy task. Immediate pick-up in intensity and play those last 3 games from a break down! Happy he's through with the 2 Aussies. Borna and Thanasi are definitely my faves of the young crew so far -- like younger, scrawnier versions of Nole and Delpo ha.
