Much flag waving here as Marinko Matosevic beats Benoit Paire 7-6, 6-7, 6-3 against a  crowd very pro-French.

Matosevic went quite deep at the Citi tournament in Washington last week beating people such as Raonic and only narrowly losing to Tursunov in the quarters.

The Tursunov - Matosevic match was very close. I had not seen Tursunov for some years and was surprised how good his serve was. The two kept pace a set a piece and until the tie-break in the third when, as I recall, Matosevic was leading 3 -1 when he suddenly developed a severe camp in his leg, and someone said, his racquet hand. In short, he then hobbled to defeat. That was sad  :( . It is tough when the body lets you down like that. Score 6-3, 4-6, 7-6.


Rafa next but he can have bad days sometimes so there is some hope.

so Gulbis takes the first set. the funny part was ' you are late and he is late'  at the end of the first set ... I can't remember the umpire's name ... my brain is dead  :))

powerful tennis there. :shakey:

After that last net encounter, I think things will turn and that Murray will come through.

It's Carlos Bernades. I like his quiet attempts to reason.

Euroka's prediction reputation takes another hit.  :(

But Ernie was really playing well today. It's been a long time coming.  ..-)

Gulbis puzzles me so mutch. Even when he was a set and a break up I thought he was gonna lose coz he is a nutcase.

 Brilliant performance today. He held it together. You just never know what to expect from him. This guy really has always had a potential to be a top 10 player if not even more. Let's put it this way, Gulbis is driving me crazy  :)>>>>.

Murray just too passive today. He really needs to be more aggressive. Sid, sorry bud.

So great to see Ernie finally did it.
I was worried after re-break in the 2nd but it's so nice to see beat him with ease at the end.

Variation victorious this time :yahoo:

Ernie's forehand just boggles my mind.

Pospisil def Berdych  :lmao:

Was rooting for Tomas but I'm really happy for Pospisil  ;-() Kanata must be really proud. Good day for Vasek.

Looool! Euroka.  I know the feeling re: predictions!   :)
I have only just logged to watch some tennis - it has been a long & busy day.  Gulbis has a beautiful game when he decides to play well, and he is one of my favourites.  Lack of focus / consistency is, alas the all too familiar malaise, and given how determined Murray usually is, I'm not surprised you picked him for the win. I'll try to watch a catch up video if I can.

Good for Pospisil to get through against Berdych, especially as it appears to have been well contested, and he prevailed.  Glad to see Del Potro through too. 

Edit:  I am definitely tired & possibly cross-eyed too! Del potro / Raonic have yet to play - I was looking at yesterdays result!  I'll watch a bit of this.
