Lead 6-2, 4-1 but seems to have fallen apart since, winning just one game from the last six.

Baghdatis beaten 6-0, 7-6(3) by qualifier Daniel Brands.  I didn't expect that one. Think

Me neither - I predicted him to get quite far in the ATP challenge too! Though Brands does play that type of all-or-nothing tennis that can be dangerous when he's on form.

Shame that Laura lost - she seemed to be winning so comfortably too.

Laura's on a three match losing streak. I really hope all this fame and money from the latest sponsporship isn't getting to her head.

I'm sure it must add a bit of pressure. Such a pity, as it seemed to be going so well, despite some dodgy serving

From BBC website: She let a 4-1 lead slip in the second set before being dominated in the deciding set, winning just one game.

"I would say a little bit more nervous than normal - when you go through a tough patch it is hard to get the first win back and I really wanted it today," said Robson. "That maybe made it a bit worse."

Sounds as if she puts a lot of pressure on herself.
Good luck Laura yay

Anderson grabs the second set against Ferrer 6-4.

Ferrer is out! Always seems to struggle here. Opens draw up for Berdych more than anyone else.

Actually, if Lorenzi can see off Simon (up a double break in the 3rd), there will be 4 non-seeded players (Paire, Lorenzi, Nieminen, Anderson) in that section of the draw to make the QFs.

Seeds falling like flies today - Paire destroyed Kohly today - 2&4. Great result for him. Nieminen hammered Verdasco 0&1(!), Leo Mayer took out Youzhny and Hewitt took out Isner.

Federer up 5-1 against Istomin and Janowicz/Nalbandian are in a 3rd in one of the most intriguing ties of the round.

Edit: Oh wow, Lorenzi cracks up 40-15 serving for the match and throws it all a way. Simon back in it at 3-5, still down a break but game on.

Also going to use this opportunity to shamelessly plug my new twitter account - basically up to date info, and general comments on all the latest results, from the ATP tour through the up and comers on the Challenger tour (the ones like Andy's opponent tomorrow who could soon be playing on the regular tour)  to the ones to watch out for and Brits doing well at Futures level.

If you're interested in hearing all the latest the link is below. Even if you don't use twitter that much a follow would still be appreciated to boost the measly 7 I have now. Thanks, TD out.
