    Thank you BB.

    I hope people who can, get to watch some of these matches.  The seeds are impressive for ATP250 tournament.

    Sasha Zverev beat another young promising guy Ymer in tight 3 sets.

    Dimitrov is scheduled for tomorrow.

    Dimitrov also.

    Tomic vs Baghdatis could be interesting (if Marcos is in good form), Sock will take on Verdasco and Simon is going against Leonardo Mayer.

    And Baghdatis beat Tomic today.   I wish I could have watched this today, but alas work...damnation!

    Verdasco put up a good fight but lost in 3 sets to Sock.  Simon and Muller also won. :good:

     

    Alright Sasha Zverev is facing Berdych tomorrow.  If anybody gets to see this match, could you please post some comments about it?  :)

    Chardy is facing Delbonis

    Darcis vs Gasquet

    Almagro vs Dimitrov

     

    And we bid farewell to Jarkko Nieminen today:  http://www.atpworldtour.com/en/news/nieminen-calls-it-a-career-at-stockholm-2015

    Happy retirement Jarkko!

    Berdych beat young Zverev and said that Zverev is a guy with a great future in front of him.

    Two Frenchmen, Gasquet and Simon, as well as Dimitrov are through to the quarter finals.

    So the match ups look like this:

    Sock vs Simon

    Chardy vs Gasquet

    Berdych vs Dimitrov (they met in the final last year)

    Baghdatis vs Muller.

     

    My pics are:  Simon, Chardy, Berdych and Baghdatis. :good:

    Gasquet and Sock disagreed with my choices. B-)  so they will contest 1 semi final and Berdych will take on rejuvenated Baghdatis in the semi #2.

    Unfortunately Isabelle, Richie lost.   Berdych is up a break at the start of his match vs Baghdatis.

    And Baghdatis retires after losing the first set.  Berdych vs Sock is the final.

    This is a great week for Jack Sock. I am happy to see him playing well.  In the live ranking he has the same number of points like Grigor

    Yeah, Sock is really making a statement. Let's see if he can maintain it.

    Jack will face Tomas. Does he have any wins over top 10 players yet?

    I am also not sure about this final.  Tomas should win it and perhaps he will, but I wouldn't be surprised if Sock does it.  But at least we have a younger guy in the final, finally. :good:
