I think Robson's performance reflected her style of play tbh, for every Clijsters and Li Na matches she's going to have a Stosur esque match where she plays well enough to demonstrate her talent, but her fearless style of play may let her down on some crucial points. Rusedski noted how her letting Stosur back into the first set when serving to lead 3-1 and then having break point opportunities at 4-4 only for Stosur to hold and then break Robson were the difference makers in that opening set.

Still she played remarkably well on the big points especially in saving match points on her own serve as well as Stosur's, played aggressively but at the same time with a sense of caution and just tried to slowly open up the court for her shots rather than hitting too hard. Credit to Stosur though, she managed to handle Robson's momentum and style of play excellently and displayed some sound mental strength to not let Robson get away from her as well as finding more and more match points and not losing her cool when each one slipped by.

I really don't follow a lot of the men's game bar a handful of players, what sort of player is Raonic? Are we talking a big server like an Isner/Karlovic, tenacious workhorse like a Ferrer, big hitter like a Tsonga/Del Potro? I'd be shocked if Murray lost given how well he seems to be doing mentally from Wimbledon onwards as well as how he seems to very rarely not have an answer for his opponents bar the Federers' and Djokovics' of the game.

He's got a big serve like Isner, and is a big hitter

Hmmm, I think Murray's generally superb return game should ensure he can trouble Raonic on serve, though I'm guessing by the 'big hitter' tag he's more like a Del Potro/Tsonga in terms of being more of an all round player than someone like Karlovic who is largely one-dimensional, so in that respect he could threaten Murray more than an Isner/Karlovic. Has he been playing well recently? Only I'm sure I saw his name banded about in the discussion prior to the tournament starting, so figured he must have been one of the dark-horses people were tipping to impress.

Pretty sure Murray is on court Monday evening/Tuesday morning which might help any trouble he might be having with the heat in the morning/afternoon games. I know how much work he's put into his conditioning and stamina to curb the troubles he had back when he was 20/21 but he looked noticeably affected during the Lopez match.

Team Smile are out, So Del Potro is the only one left for me. Team Goerges played a great match.

Ivanovic through in straight sets. Federer is given a walkover, so we won't be seeing any Federer magic today i'm afraid

Berdych also through in straight sets

Serena hands out a double bagel. Serena vs Ivanovic next round. Kerber vs Errani is on now. Errani was a break up, but Kerber broke back and held, So Kerber is 5-4 up atm.

Edit* First set went to Errani one a tiebreak. This is a really intriguing match between 2 players with defensive styles. And Errani breaks Kerber in the 2nd. My predictions are going down the shitter

There is a possibility of Errani vs Vinci in the next round. We've already had Shvedova vs King, and now we might get Vinci vs Errani

*Now Kerber breaks back

Errani won. TBH, i didn't expect that. Well done to Sara, this is a good tournament for her. Looks like she has recovered from that awful grass season she will want to forget.

Oh what a shame, I wanted to see Federer play. Why did Fish retire?

Errani beat Kerber, wasn't expecting that but I am not surprised. She is a very good player.

I seriously do not expect Raonic to beat Murray. I will be schoked if that happens.

Errani was an interesting matchup for Kerber. I thought Kerber would win, but it'll be close. Instead Errani gets it done in 2 sets. She's winning me over a bit here. Ever since the Golden set i've felt sorry for her. Not for losing the golden set, but rather for all the backlash she gets. Her grunt is very strange though

Yeah I also though it would be close but was expecting Kerber to win in 3 sets.

I am a fan of Errani, not a big fan but I enjoy seeing her play.

Errani is a bad match up for Kerber really. The best way to defeat Errani is to hit through her, and overpower her, but Kerber does not have enough power to do that. In the end she went for too much, and Errani's spin and angles make it so hard for Kerber.

Vinci a break up against Radwanska. Please beat her Vinci!!
