Watch the Simon / Monfils match instead, a lot more entertaining.

A counter puncher like Andy always fights back.

Tomic plays well, unfortunately Fed plays better at the decisive moments. Shame.

Watching probably the last set of the Tomic/Federer game. I hadn't seen much of Tomic until today and I must say he is very impressive.  Some fantastic shots, powerful off both sides, but then also a gorgeous touch for drop shots and inventive shots. Seems to be the real deal. It's no great shame to be beaten by Federer, he has put every good tennis player in their place at some time.  I think it provides good motivation to get back their and beat the man who posses the smuggest attitude in tennis, possibly all of sport.  Btw with the pink/purple motif echoed throughout his apparel, I'm surprised he felt the matching nail varnish option was too much!  Whistle

Omg that was a 71 shot rally. All these rallies are never-ending. Neither of them will be able to walk tomorrow, great for Andy though I want this to go to 5 sets; although it's not good that they both look to be playing very well.

To be honest I don't really want Andy to play either one of these, it will tire him out if it's anything like this.

True, although if that were the case the rallies would be even longer and whoever!? won would be happy to win a five setter in the next round.  Whereas both these guys are negating their chances in the next round with every set the contest.

I think Monfils will get tired first. He already looks to be struggling, has a slight problem with his knee as well.. also last match he was struggling with fitness a bit.

Same end to that set as last one. Monfils might just give up now, I doubt he will even want to struggle through a five setter here in order to come through this.

Looks like Monfils is going out, which is a shame, because a match between him and Andy is a rarity these days. He would certainly give Andy a game that would be entertaining!

UE count tells you nothing when the rallies are that long.
