Querrey turns it around a bit, was a break down in second set but won 6-3. EDIT: correction, he won 6-1. 6 games in a row after having been broken. Weird set.

One set all.

there's a thread debating it, seems consensus is the info is reliable and he's out.

That Kyrgios tweet is extremely petty BUT he's not wrong. The rule that you only get qualified if you actually hurt someone is dumb.
What means he is out.He is scheduled to play after 4 hours I think

Aussie Matty Ebden gets a MASSIVE win over 7th seed Sam Querrey.

Defending champ Querrey is out in round 1. Falls 8 spots on the rankings to #19 in the world. Not great for him.

With Nadal also out of the draw that means one of the following will make the SF from the top quarter:
(LL) Taro, Lopez, (WC) Kokkinakis, Donaldson or Ebden.

You'd assume it'd be Lopez. Don't think any of the other 5 would have ever made an ATP500 SF. May be wrong though.

Jack Sock loses to Escobedo in straight sets.

Since making the ATP Final's SF, Jack Sock is 1-5 in singles.

Lost in the SF of the ATP Finals, 1R loss in Auckland as the defending champ and a 1R loss at the Aus Open. 2R loss in Delray Beach and now 1R loss in Acapulco.

Sock should have taken that Cramps away packets sooner, it didn't have time to kick in , I guess. Sock was cramping , it looks like

Jack Sock has just the one win in 2018 and it's over JP Smith who's not ranked in the top 200.

His losses? #65 Gojowczyk, #41 Sugita, #228 Opelka and #123 Escobedo.

Really poor.

With Nadal also out of the draw that means one of the following will make the SF from the top quarter:
(LL) Taro, Lopez, (Q) Bublik, (WC) Kokkinakis, Donaldson or Ebden.

You'd assume it'd be Lopez. Don't think any of the other 5 would have ever made an ATP500 SF. May be wrong though.
Sock now gone from the top half which really opens it up.

One of the following will make the final:
(LL) Taro, Lopez, (WC) Kokkinakis, Donaldson, Ebden, (Q) Escobedo, Chung, Mannarino or #5 Anderson.

Lopez is the only one from that list who has an ATP500 title. Mannarino and Anderson both have made ATP500 finals.

Huge opportunity for someone.

Z was more focused on the first set, attacking more and with precision, enjoyable to watch. He seemed a bit uninterested at the start of the second and was making a lot of unforced errors, then kind of stopped going for it and is now engaging in longer rallies. Faced one BP I think, but is holding mostly with ease as his serve is alright today and McD does not return well. About to serve at 3-4, hope he does not complicate things.

What a wonderful crowd for the Isner v Harrison match. Absolutely love this tournament and the atmosphere. @gogo must be in the stands.:p
I'm too busy stuffing my face with great food and mezcal in Mexico City. I'm too fat and tipsy now to make the trip over the Sierra Madres to Acapulco.

Huge chance for Kokkinakis to make QF or semis.
Very winnable match against clay courter Daniel or out of form Lopez.
Out of form Lopez is playing a brilliant third set right now to get to match game on his serve...10 for 10 first serve points won behind 8 aces. He was down 0-30 one game but has lost just two other points on serve.

EDIT: closes 6-4 but not without a bit of drama (3 BPs saved) overcome with the aid of three more aces.
