Tournament Results & Quick Hits
- The popcorn match of the day was surely the last on the schedule as Alexander Zverev outlasted Richard Gasquet in a three set thriller. The momentum switched as Gasquet, who noticed up his 500th tour level win en route to this match looked to have the measure of the young German, taking the first set, before Zverev rallied. Even when Gasquet looked to be struggling physically he still had a few tricks up his sleeve, before finally Zverev closed out the encounter. He will face Kei Nishikori, who also had a battle on his hands in a three setter against Marin Cilic.
- If Zverev and Gasquet were popcorn, then the Jigglypuff award goes to Rafael Nadal and Dominic Thiem. After that epic match against Novak Djokovic, Thiem was flat and absolutely no match for Nadal, who battered him so resolutely, the atmosphere in the stadium was flat as well, with maybe a rousing cheer of relief when Thiem actually managed to get a game on the board.
- Nadal will face Grigor Dimitrov, who has played scrappy tennis this week as he tries to establish a more consistent run of form, and could well be another candidate for being blasted off the court as it seems inevitable that Nadal is closing in on an historic 11th
