    It ain't over yet. Dasco summoning up some reserves of energy.

    How do you people watch Verdasco?

    I tried, but I can't do it.

    I get the feeling Verdasco is finally starting to wake up and may yet make a match of this ... may. Definitely picking up the pace as the third set progresses.

    He's got the advantage of serving first in this set. Tipsy needs to keep up the good serving/

    If it isn't his game, his bubblegum attire is enough to turn me off.

    Tipsy holds for 4-4, saving a BP in that game.

    Sheesh. If Dasco wants to be a pusher, aside from it not being his strength, he needs to learn how to do it properly(i.e, hitting the ball deep, a foot or two past the service line like he kept doing on game point there won't cut it).

    Loving Tipsy's BH with the rest of you though.

    Poor return game from Tipsy. Dasco still has hope.

    Is verdasco bulkier than in past years? He doesn't look tubby or anything, just even more filled out and solid than usual.

    If it's on purpose then it's a bad idea, his movement has always needed improvement and extra bulk won't help.

    Deuce again. Momentum with Verdasco. Tipsy needs to hold and hang in there.

    Tipsy picking the wrong time to lose his game. Not that there's a good one, but if he'd waited another 20 mins the match probably would be over.

    Match on! Janko needs a strong start to the 4th to blunt this momentum ... he's still ahead but in dangerous territory now. Fernando's waking up.

    Bad end to the set by Tipsarevic. Hopefully he gets it back together for the 4th set. This match is obviously his to win or lose.

    I called it at the top of the set. Tipsy should have been more aware of the serving-first adv dasco had and applied pressure early

    I don't know. Verdasco showed signs of his best form towards the end of that set.

    From now on, all that Tipsarevic has to do is compose himself and keep up a decent level, he'll get plenty of chances to seal the deal here. He doesn't need to dip too much tho.
