Gasquet chips and charges, not particularly well, and Ferrer misses an easy pass. 30-30

Ferrer puts away a short return with his forehand, set point

Gasquet misses a forehand wide. 6-3, 6-1, 4-6

Gasquet showed a lot of mental fortitude in his 5setter with Raonic - he's going to have to do the same here. But seriously, dat backhand. Dat backhand.

And brava, Flavia!

An appreciation of Pennetta's hotness.

That was a gutsy hold from Gasquet.

The third set he couldn't make up his mind whether he wanted to fight for it or cruise.

Now he faces 15-30. Good serve and putaway from Reeshard. 30-30

Great point construction from Gasquet. He's taken Ferrer off the court with that backhand numerous times today. 40-30

Gasquet holds after painting the baseline! One game away from actually winning back to back five setters.

5-3, love hold from Ferrer

Crosscourt backhand winner starts it off for Gasquet. Ferrer hits two balls long, the second is called long. 30-0

Gasquet doesn't move his feet and mi****s a forehand. 15-30
Ferrer takes his backhand down the line to make it 30-30
Wuh oh
Ferrer nets a backhand. Backhand giveth, backhand taketh away
Forehand winner finishes the match for Gasquet!

Wow. His strategy actually worked

ALLEZ!!!!

Vive la France! This is huge. To take out BOTH Raonic AND Ferrer in 5setters? Yeah, huge. One can only assume Nadal will get past Robredo which means we'll be in for a hell of a semi. Awesome.

The Little Aces final game from 1999.

I like how nobody was talking about Robredo

Haha I watched that a few months ago.

If Robredo manages to back up his win against Fed by beating Nadal (and they've had close matches before) then people will talk. Still think Rafa wins but hey, everyone saw Fed and Ferrer winning as well...

Why is the toss such a huge problem in women's tennis asks Pam Shriver? The return of serve? No.

Steffi Graf.

Robredo has nothing here. Nadal could probably triple goose egg him if he wanted tonight.

Murray shanks the forehand wide to give WOWrinka the second set 6-3. A display of excellence from Stan, really.

This Mayweather/Canelo ad at the bottom of my phone is annoying the piss out of me, so I haven't been commenting here today.

****ing amazing. Wawrinka started the match in the zone and stayed there. The bigger bonus in all of this? We may get a rematch of the Djoker/WOWrinka match from the Aussie Open. Incredible how we all thought Novak would have a tough time with Dimitrov, Delpo and Murray and turns out the one guy waiting for him is the same guy that TESTED him at the beginning of the year.

Murray didn't look like the defending champ and the ONE HANDED BACKHAND strikes again!

Tremendous from Stan.
