    I'm watching it but I can't figure out what's going on, LOL. Did Pouille bagel Cuevas in the 1st? :eek:

    Sometimes it takes some dudes time to wake up. DelPo used to play his way into a match like that. Used to give me hives.

    6-0 3-6 7-5 Pouille. What a roller coaster of a match, but in the end the frenchman showing again great fighting spirit to come back from 3-5 down to 7-5 in the 3rd.

    What a level he displayed in the first set! And such delicate droppers throughout.

    14 posts in a tightly fought Masters QF-thread..... typical ttw. No big 5 -> no interest.

    hue hue, well over 100 poasts on the match in the tournament thread. This thread was made underway in the match, so people didn't bother jumping ship.

    Solid match BTW, and Pouille's terrific, so I'm very pleased to see him with a realistic chance at a masters final.

    ah, my bad then. Wouldn't be the first time a match like this got close to no attention though. Wasn't at my computer so didn't post. Very solid match, really like Pouille too. Would like to see him as a regular top-10 player, very eye pleasing game

    Pouille has a lot of fighting spirit. He's so very...unfrench.

    I couldn't watch anything of the tournament. What a performance by Cuevas. Next time he will go further.
