    Great win from Muller. The scoreline makes it appear that the match was close, but it wasn't. MR's interview should be interesting...

    They're doing Ferrero's tribute now, they just showed some nice videos messages to ferrero from Andy, Nole and Roger. And now present and past spanish players are saying things to him one on one (if that makes sense :) , i don't think i worded that properly lol). Awwww he's trying to hold back the tears. Hewitt just said some nice words as well

    Granollers cannot win. Man, I hate his tennis and his grunting.

    Alexandr Dolgopolov reached his fifth ATP World Tour quarter-final of the season with a 6-4, 6-4 victory over Gilles Muller of Luxembourg in 81 minutes on Thursday at the Valencia Open 500.

    Austrian Jurgen Melzer broke a two-match losing streak against Xavier Malisse of Belgium with a 7-5, 6-2 win in 73 minutes.

    Good for Sasha.

    Goffin doing the ol' break and choke. Was at 4-1, then 4-4, broke to 5-4 and couldn't serve for the set. At 5-5 now.

    Just hope Goffin doesn't disappear after all the chances he had in the first set.

    Trust me, if Almagro didn't won against Ferrer in Madrid this year, he probably never will.

    Looks like a bit of a dogfight right now. Is Nico going to take the second set? Or will Ferru take matchpoint on his second serve?

    Don't want to be disrespectful towards Dodig, but is Cilic really getting moved around the court by someone without any weapons but his serve???

    Sweet lord the guy doesnt even have a FH. Just shows what a wasted talent Cilic is.

    I watched Cilic vs Federer in Shanghai, he's UE machine, nothing else, have a good run in AO 2010, but since then it has not done anything worth mentioning!

    Nah, I wouldnt call it just one good run or a fluke, but still it's pathetic to see a solid Top15 player losing to a guy who's not even Top100.
    He lost to some Romanian newbie ranked in the mid Top200 range. That's just terrible.

    Dodig is not bad mind. He has beat nadal and won a indoor title, he is not a 110 ranked player in reality.
