Verdasco seems to have Khachanov's number. Second time in a row he's beaten him in the early stages of a clay Masters (beat him last week in the 2nd round of Madrid).

Incredible Verdasco. Beating two top 15 guys in 5 hours distance and both 3 setter matches
Also he played almost 5 hours between the 2 matches. 2 hours and 43 minutes vs Thiem and 2 hours 9 minutes vs Khachanov. Really impressive, mostly because he is 35 years old.

He matches up so well with Thiem its rather disgusting. Khachanov is not as big a scalp these days, but he did have advantage of only playing one match today. If Fiasco beats Rafa tomorrow(assuming he comes through), that will be stunning.o_O

Honestly, I'm tired of Rafa-Khachanov matches. That guy is as useless as anyone can be against Rafito. I'm glad he lost today.

Hey, he is 37, let Coric have something to tell his grandchildren. ;)
I will say Thiem was rather trying today. He was constantly whining and having temper tantrums. Now normally Fiasco will choke like clock work, but not when he's getting pumped up with a whole load of Thiem angst. The cherry on top of the Sunday was Thiem inserting his finger well up his nose late in the match.:sneaky:

He's got 4 seed at RG locked up; needs a Fiasco free draw it seems.:eek:

Well its a sort of US Open replay with Basha coming up shortly and of course Fiasco scalped him at Auz Open and elsewhere, so that's going to be no picnic. Fernando will be swinging for the fences after 6 sets today.o_O

Nadal's forehand these days is serioulsy a 50-50 shot. 50% he will miss even the easiest forehands. This is sad to watch. I remember RG 2017 where he destroyed Basilashvili 6-0 6-1 6-0. Today I will not be surprised at all if Basilashvili beats him.

Nadal is goating today.
Against a fairly mediocre player who is playing garbage. Wait till Nadal faces decent opposition.
He is no better than he has been this clay season. Little aggression and lack of initiative, not particularly fast. More of the same really.

This guy is not even a Nadal fan. Goating? LOL. I missed the last game of the first set, but I know for sure that when the score became 5-1 Nadal still had zero winners.

LOL must be weird for Rudd to go through that Kyrgios match and now getting bludgeoned by Delpo.

Speaking of Delpo, he's quitely moving through the draw, took out Goffin and now Rudd with ease. If he managed to string two such matches in a row does that suggest his physical injuries are behind him (for now)?

Nadal played a poor point and his face looks like he is about to lose the match, while fact is he has lost only two games in four sets today :)
