I m speechless after RamK's performance ... He defeated undoubtfully the hottest #NextGenATP player of 2017, Dominic Thiem, convincingly on the grass ... This is one of the best win by an Indian in recent years, beating top-10 player on the tour ... In the first set, he broke Thiem in 2nd game to take 3-0 lead and kept this one break advantage for winning the set ... In the second set from 2-all, he broke Thiem in 5th and 7th games for winning it comfortably ... In this match, RamK produced huge serves and powerful forehands ... Next, he is facing veteran and very experienced Marcos Baghdatis.
Lee-Adil produced excellent comeback win over Dutch pair for entering into the quarters ... After losing the first set they fought hard for winning the second and the match tie-break on extra points ... Next, they r facing Carlos Berlocq and Joao Sousa.
