Third set to Almagro 6-1. Jerzy ran out of gas at the end. What a vast difference between the way he returned today and the way he returned against Devvarman, and it wasn't all due to the gaping difference in quality of serve between his two opponents. Just never found his rhythm and got outplayed off the ground for most of the match. Good run for him regardless. Not a sign that he's the "real deal" necessarily, but making the third round here in conditions which don't greatly suit his game at least gives hope that he isn't just a 100th ranked player with one fluke run, and that he'll somewhat consolidate his position on tour.

Tipsarevic completes the comeback against Benneteau 6-3 in the fifth.

Nishikori defeats Donskoy in straight sets. Wish I had watched a little more of this match. I haven't really seen much of Donskoy before.
