    Don't know how much of it was Delpo folding. What I saw of the match (the last few games and the tiebreak), Granollers was making some terrific shots. Looked to me like he deserved the win. He sure was happy to get it.

    He was tentative and hitting balls short or wide at the tail end of the second set. Short balls and poor volleys/drop shots gave Granollers ample opportunities and he took full advantage. Marcel played well and deserves the win. His defensive retrievals and drop volleys in particular were very good.

    this match is taking forever. pico was up a break in the 3rd but it looks like he's about to lose the TB in the end.
