Monaco wins his first match (outside Davis Cup) of 2013! Beats Tim Smyczek 7-6, 6-1 in Houston.
Ricardas Berankis beats Tommy Haas 6-3, 6-3 in Houston. Also in QFs is young American Rhyne Williams (won his first Challenger this year) and Jack Sock took Isner all the way to a final set tie-break. Those two Americans will break the top 100 this year, of that I have no doubt. Meanwhile Verdasco lost 6-3, 6-2 to 35yo Ramirez Hidalgo!
Garcia-Lopez (Wawrinka won 6-1, 6-2) Paire/Robredo (Robredo won 7-6, 2-6, 6-0)
Jiri Vesely has reached his first Challenger SF - and with it breaks the top 200, becoming the first teenager since Tomic to do so.
Mannarino and Bogomolov making strides back to the top 100. Both former top 50 players, meet each other in the SFs in Guadalajara. Vasek Pospisil also looking to return to the top 100, faces Rajeev Ram in the other SF.
Utter choke by Paire. Could have won it after having a break point in the first game of the 3rd set, but after that was saved, he totally collapsed.
