Thinking Thiem has any more of a puncher's chance against Nadal is so pie in the sky. People will latch onto anything that smells kinda new these days I guess. Nadal should win without much trouble if Thiem even makes it there.

He won with ease in '14 but he'll be playing a totally different player should they meet in 4R. Nadal and his fans should first focus on a thoroughly unpredictable Fognini in 3R.

As a Thiem fan, I'm not looking any further than Cervantes. There are also good tests from that point (probably GGL and DT's good buddy Zverev).

If the match happens, it will be a good one.

Accuweather says rain from now until 1pm local 2 hours of dry then rain from 3om til midnight. We might only see two hours today. Theirs a yellow thunderstorm warning all day tomorrow.

It's gonna be rain delay-o-rama isn't it? :(

Watching on ITV4 and Orange Inverdale says courts are uncovered and play should start soon, but I bet it's gonna be on and off all day.

It's funny, the link posted above from the espn 'experts' pick Kyrgios as a dark horse. I agree he has a big game but I can't see him having a great deal of success on clay, it's suited to a fast surface and he just doesn't have the patience you need on clay to construct points. I don't seem him losing to this guy but making the last 8, I don't see that.

Nick gets a warning for shouting 'Out' at a line judge after the point ended and now just had a bit of a row with the Ump!

Nick complaining about how Djokovic can scream at ball kids without warnings and how he's getting warnings for lesser offences. He's got a point.

He shouted OUT!!! as soon as the point had ended looking at the baseline as if a linejudge had missed a call during the rally, I was watching it.

I swear Igor Sijsling is the worst choker on the ATP tour. Has the game to be top 50, but can't finish a match to save his own skin
