I was, but it's kind of a mess of a match. I'm watching Almagro-Gasquet.

Wow, what a great reaction by Malisse after he got the win. That one meant a lot!

Nico got back-to-back bad calls. First was an overrule by the chair who called a ball out. Almagro challenged and his ball was in. The second on break point with Gasquet serving at 5-3. Lines person called the ball out before the ball hit the line and kicked up "chalk."

And he is :cursing:

Gasquet takes the first set 6-3 (1 break).

Almagro just intimidated the chair into giving him a point that absolutely should have been replayed. Almagro hit a line again and the linesperson called it out. But it was a ball Gasquet swung at and hit an error. Almagro challenged and the ball was in. Almagro walks past the chair and says, "That's it," and sits down. Rather than saying, replay the point--which he absolutely should have done--he calls it "Game Almagro."

In any event, Gasquet rolls along up now 2-0 sets. He really looks good on grass. Almagro, not so much.

Bennetteau plays better, he deserves to win this match. In other hand, if Federer come back from 2 sets down. It is good for him.

I am waiting the one who make final result.  :)~

Fed still hanging in there.  Narrowed the gap a little.  You have to figure if Fed takes this 5 sets there will be at least one super close nail bitter of a set.
Good Luck on the Court!!!

last night rosol really believed he could beat nadal.......i am not sure if benettaeu does.......he is returning almost every serve of fed though and that made all the difference in the first two sets.......he is surely reading fed's serves.......

Too bad. That was Bennetteau's chance. Gone wasted.

Fed will prolly take this set 6-3.

Even if Roger win this five sets, I wonder if he can win this title.  He had easy 2 matches. And not like he play nadal or Djokovic, but he start this match very poorly.

He started to play much much better at third set and by then he already trail 0-2. His consistency and concentration not as good as 6-7 years ago.

Even in the fourth set tie break, federer cannot serve any ace or unreturned serves to gain a point. He had to sigh a relief of few mistakes of benneteau mkistake in TB to make him win the fourth set.

Its a toss up in final set. Hoping Roger can just hold his first serve percentage and break his opponents once. And please do not try any drop shot  cause it failed in the previous four sets.

I have been so busy at work I realized the Fed match was going on when he was serving at 5-6 in the fourth and it was 30-30 and my heart rate has been through the roof till he won that SUPER CLOSE tie-break. Surprisingly I also called that he'd win 6-3 in the fifth, I think JB will be let down, he came as close as possible I think.

I hope. Come on FED!! This is ridiculous. Nadal and Federer both out in the same day has gotta be some kinda day to rememebr forever in tennis history.

What's going on with JB and the trainer? IS here some kinda rule he's taking advantage of?

And Federer just does it. He breaks first with down the line forehand.

Congrats Roger for escaping a third round loss. Kudos to benneteau who play his best today.

Roger win the fifth set cause he is fresh than Benneteau who look real tired (physically and mentally)  in the last set.

Now Roger need to step up his game in round 16 and QF cause he had a very good records against his opponents and probably had to play amazing in SF against Djokovic to move into the final.
