Wow, this performance of Chardy has really caught me by surprise. He's returning serve really well, and these commentators rightly pointed out that his short slices have repeatedly caused Del Potro problems (and not for the first time in his career either). Chardy breaks a second time to take the set 6-3.

And just as I say that, he tightens up miserably and gets broken in the first game of the third... and Delpo hands it right back on a double fault, although Chardy played a couple of nice points before that. 1-1. Delpo serving at 2-3 0-40 and Chardy has some chances but Delpo absorbs the pace and draws a couple of errors, and hits an ace at 30-40 and again at ad-Chardy, ultimately escaping for 3-3.
