So Fognini and Roddick really are good friends. His pre-match interview makes me think this will be his retirement gift to Andy.

Fognini breaks!

Andy really couldn't keep it together serving for the set. Fognini's doing a good job just sticking his racquet out and blocking serves back. That's gets under your skin. Fognini 4-5 on serve.

No favours for AR from FF here, Babblelot! and rightly so.   FF has played beautifully these last 3 games to equalise to 5-5.   I might be wrong, but AR has that look in his eyes. The " Oh! Oh! I'm in deep s**t" look.  I hope I'm wrong.   FF putting his serve under pressure.

Nice to see Mayer putting up a good effort in the second set against Del Potro.

Hewitt on his way out in the 4th set, methinks.  5-0 to Ferrer.  DF was the favourite to go through & so it comes to pass!

Fabio is returning serve really well. It just took him 1 service game to get acclimated.

No surprises yet.  Has Del Po played a seeded player yet?  What about Novak?  I haven't kept up too much with this side of the draw since I already know it'll be Novak who comes through.

Stan is serving very well, regularly getting 130+ on first serves.
Then we will fight in the shade.

Fognini will be winning some fans today. He's by and large not a well liked player. Folks think he's a jerky primadonna and nothing more. Well, he's more than a primadonna :laugh-bounce:

Anyone besides me likes Dolgopolov's funky game? I think he's a real character too - just bounced a ball off his head.

Thanks swish!  Sadly not one that interests me...  Not an Isner fan.  It's not hit personality or anything.

I'm not an Isner fan either. Nothing personal - just don't like his tennis.
