Nothing amazing about it. What was amazing is a ridiculous 1st serve prcentage in the first set -- 84 for Giraldo and 92(!) for Tursunov.

Mitya totally collapsed after the rain delay, he had won only 1 point on return going down 3-5 in the second set, then finally managed to break back but failed miserably when serving to stay in the set (not a single first serve in + DF on set point). Moreover, he requested an MTO in the beginning of the third set and struggled to hold serve afterwards but somehow found himself holding triple BP at 4-4 -- and that's when the rain started pouring down again an the match was postponed. Luckily, he escaped any brainfarts today breaking Giraldo on the second attempt and serving it out to love.
