On a side note what an awesome match-ups are coming my way.

Haas - Youzhny the battle of old schoolers, probably the best slices on tour.

I can't even express what would it be if Haas meets Hewitt in 4th round. Oh man so many memories of early century.

Kohli-Nadal Always great matches on hard. Kohli always had something to give.

Wawrinka-Baggy Another joy to eyes for old school tennis fans.
yeah, couldn't agree more.

Now, this Evans kid is good. He has to improve his first serve percentage. it's only 35%/

Yeaah Evans is awesome really, I just said guys like him might be the reason to still follow tennis when some of my faves retire.

Evans managed to win the 3rd set. Let's hope for more.

Robredo breaks back, but what a courage by Rvans to attack! Gotta admire this guy.

Bahh he lost it in the end. At least I'm glad I stayed throughout this match as his game is such a joy to watch.

Definitely going on my watchlist! Kudos to him.

Babbs was right, I definitely do enjoy Evans game!

nighty night all.

Fed breaks. Very strong start, beautiful passing shots.

Where is everyone. Am I the only one watching this match?

Things will heat up soon in the later rounds, too many of the top players got their spurs handed to 'em.

well Fed is through. That was a snooze-fest as Mannarino was completely clueless. not much to say.

I was watching, but you know I can't concentrate on 'posting' when Roger is playing....even though this was a very one-sided match (just the way I like them) :))  Now Roger can rest until he play Robredo.... (2 oldies)...

I see Nadal steamrolling by his next opponent.... (just stating what I think will happen).

Isner had nothing left, but I knew he wasn't really going to do too much in this tournament.  He does well in pre-grand slam tournaments but doesn't do too much in the slams.

Robredo is a stud!

Good run for Evans, but gotta give it up for Tommy.

I wonder if Mirka and Annacone want Robredo to achieve a QF birth. It must be a tempting scenario. They just look so depressed in that players box  :Sad-Bye:
“It is not too far way,” Toni Nadal told The Australian after Nadal collected the 13th major of his career by mowing down Novak Djokovic in an electrifying final of the US Open. “It is getting very, very close for Rafa to be level with Roger or more.”

What a battle for the Top 10 we're having. Wawa, Gasquet and Raonic, two of which will face each other directly. Haas is also in the fold from a distance. Too bad, these guys are so far away from Tsonga, with little chance of Top 8 by the end of the year, but who knows?

Wawa playing first against Baghdatis today, who easily defeated his adversaries so far, so he might put up a good fight.

People who keep saying you can't return today's kicker to 1HBH...please shut up now. No one kicks their serve higher than Isner.
