Karlovic wins in the tie break and match.  He was part of the doubles team that put the Bryan Bros out.  Great week for him thus far.  He put 29 aces past Gasquet.

Why are all the women on first all the time? Shove the stupid bores on outside courts at 3am.

How jammy can it get for Nole eh?  He's hardly had to flex that supposedly ailing shoulder his matches have been so easy so far.  Does he have ANYONE in his path who can give him a challenge?
While I don't particularly like Gasquet he does play beautiful tennis so sad to see him put out by someone who just serves him off the court.

Agree Ruthie, can't stand these too tall servers! Put them in a separate league!
Gasquet's a bit of an enigma, forever destined to lurk, very dangerously, on the margins.

Pity about Gasquet, I like watching him play and always want him to win his match except of course when he is playing Andy. I also wish the woman's match was later, I cant handle watching them more than a minute, that screeching is just too much.

Lets not get too excited about the Joker. At least in his next match he will  be playing someone in the top 50 who we will have heard of. What was the ranking of Niland and Berlocq?

That's my point araminta.  He has had it unbelievably easy so far and while I know it's good to be stretched a bit early on, if he really does have shoulder problems and is tired this will have suited him down to the ground.  Who is his next opponent btw?

I think its Davydenko who can at least put up a bit of a fight

Thanks araminta - yes even though he's nothing like what he was as you say he should at least put up a fight.  I'd really like him to take a set off Nole and push him.

Really enjoying the form of Tommy Haas. If this man hadn't had four years out to injury, plus another to look after his injured parents (when he was world number 2), he'd be sitting on four slam titles. Unluckiest player ever.

Gasquet has the body shape of a dwarf.

Hmm. A little extreme, but I know what you mean. He looks quite chunky, wonder how tall he is. You've gotta be 6' and over these days to have a chance.

Rino Tommasi, a famous Italian tennis journalist, called him a 'growth dwarf'.

Hey don't let's get sizeist!
Del P seems to be steaming through his match.  Could be a real threat down the line for our Andy.

Pleased to see Stan the Man just lost first set to Donald Young.  So hope Young not Stan comes through.
