    Only saw the first two sets as I have an exam today. Got to be said though that the gap between Murray and Djokovic (and Rafa if he ever gets back to his best) was yet again emphasised by that performance, especially on clay. For me the French Open is between two players this year.
    In other news, Dimitrov seems to have finally come of age. Played blisteringly well against Stan yesterday, just ran out of steam. The guy just needs to work on his fitness and he is definitely top ten material.
    Also great to see Kei coming of age, especially as I know him personally from when I went to the Bolletieri academy, really nice guy. Do think that those two will be the two youngsters to make a real break through this year or next. Dolgopolov is too inconsistent and I don't rate Raonic much. Big serve and forehand but his weaknesses are exposed far too much when he plays the greats.

    Hello. My name is David Ferrer. You killed my career. Prepare to die.

    EDIT: This is incredible. Ferrer is actually roasting Rafa - as in, the score makes it look closer than it is. Rafa has won 8 points on his second serve the entire match.

    EDIT: And now Rafa's starting to fight back and Ferrer is actually not choking or looking scared or just going away like he normally does when he plays Rafa. The belief is really driving him right now.

    EDIT: What a crucial hold. C'mon Ferru! He's taking Nadal's serves so early, and then just one-two punching him around the court.

    EDIT: No, Ferru! Fight the power. D:

    EDIT: And Ferrer does indeed fight the power. Spaniards - there can be only one.

    He has 17% win-rate on his second serve.

    EDIT: break-point for Ferru.

    EDIT: 2nd serve

    EDIT: ah, so close. Nadal's 2nd serve was ballsy.

    EDIT: 2nd break point Ferru.

    EDIT: fantastic leaping volley from Ferru to seal the break!

    EDIT: ...and David to lose the break.

    EDIT: nadal is in trouble because he can only win points on his forehand. His backhand, drop shot, etc are just not there.

    That match was not easy to watch, glad Rafa is through though. He played bad at times, but showed some brilliance, that point in the second set at 5-6, 15-30 did change things.

    Gutted for Kei, thought he had a real chance against Andujar. Think he won't pose much competition for rafa.

    Murray is playing so good today. Aggressive from the beginning and keeping his service games short. Hope he can keep up this intensity

    He's a legend of this society - the best troll there ever was at one point, and he hadn't posted in a long while

    Murray really should have taken at least one of the break points he had earlier in the set.
