Rowan here. Awesome day of tennis at the Heineken Open today. All eight second round matches went to three sets, it was tennis heaven.
Juan Martin del Potro got tested by Ernests Gulbis but came through all right in the end. With all the Gulbis hype I forgot how good del Potro is. He did win 23 matches in a row last year after all. In a rematch of last year’s final defending champion Philipp Kohlschreiber narrowly beat Juan Carlos Ferrero in a third set tiebreak under the lights. A bit tragic for all you Ferreroholics out there, but it was a heck of a match. 2008 champ Phil has 2007 champ Dave Ferrer in the quarterfinals, should be a good fight.
