    This one is going to a fifth. And tipsy may very well not come out of it victorious.

    If Nando Tobasco can win the 4th, I will go out on a limb and say he takes the cake.. but that's a big if still. hopefully he can pull himself together even more so.

    Tipsy tensed up a little bit last set towards the middle. Allowed nando to get back in and Nando used the go-for-broke moment to regain some confidence in his forehand.

    Now the match is pretty even if you ask me and leaning towards nando winning the 4th.

    Yep, both. Second half of the third set, Dasco started playing better with real emotion, and Tipsy played his worst tennis of the match.

    Wow -- surprised to see Tipsy break so soon! He can serve out the match now if he just find his first serve again and hold a few times.

    Good heavens. The Fiasco has returned, and with authority. Working hard to break himself here it seems.

    Plays sh*t until he's under pressure. Then he absolutely rips it

    And Dasco erases them all, the last two with brilliant DTL shots, one on each wing.

    Why can't Verdasco be more consistent?

    Eh, 2 passive returns from Janko but credit goes to Nando for some gutsy play.

    Tipsy is even more inconsistent. He's barely in the top 50 and never been ranked higher than 33 in his career.

    I'd say he's mentally wired to explode, preventing any sort of consistency. But that's just my guess = )

    Kinda reminds of Nalbandian's play last night. Brilliant shotmaking when behind, otherwise, pretty average stuff.

    Verdasco can just pummel the ball. WOW! Finally a good match to watch instead of this 50 minute steam roll stuff!

    That's what BG was saying. Pretty much a mirror image from last night. 0-40 then duece then ad out then Verdasco wins the last three points.

    Hey even a stopped clock is right twice a day. BG deserves that much at least.

    Verdasco just needs to let it fly, forget strategy and throw down bombs.

    Is Verdasco crazy? These UEs are ridiculous.

    Janko basically asked Verdasco to break him there, and he refused. One game from the match now, he better find his forehand and quick.

    lol

    Tipsa is a giant killer, although I'm not sure if Verdasco was ever a giant in the first place.

    More like a really tall midget.

    Tipsy almost pulls off a brilliant pass, Dasco pulls off a tension-filled overhead. 30-30

    Tipsy just has to serve it out now. He was really tight in his last service game, hopefully not here.....

    I think this game decides the match. Tipsy fading from what I can see -- he either serves it out here, or he'll have trouble getting in front again.
