WOWOWOW!! Good third round clash!!

Rios just bounced Moya back in convincent 7-5 7-5 win! Marat, as always playing good, but had some troubles to defeat Andrei. Rios or Marat???? Who'll win????

I really want Rios to win, even liking Marat more. I want Rios to comeback in style, and become more confident like the beginning of year, tho' he have a real BUT REAL test now...

Should be very exciting! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

ON paper of course Marat is the favourite, though I would like to see Rios go through. He needs some confidence boosting wins.

This was beautiful - I sat in the scorching heat the entire match.

It was soooo good. Some flashes of Rios of old - no one cuts corners, creates angles, and puts together a point like Rios does, just incredible.

Safin as well, was playing wonderfully.

It was good untill Rios took an injury break up 6-5, with Safin to serve in the 3rd - Rios wasn't the same after that.

He wasn't moving well anymore, and played a bad tie break :(

Becca: Sounds like you had a good day yesterday.
Pleased to hear Rios showed some of his old brilliance. Hope this gives him confidence for the next t'ment a& trust the injury is something very small

dbc - I hope that Rios can come back too, he's so good.

I've only seen him on TV a couple times before, and WOW...

The shots that he makes - no one plays like he does, just no one..
I almost wanted him to win just to see him play on tv today.

It is too bad about his injury though - and IMO he was clearly hurt, he didn't move well after getting treated.
