No.8 Jurgen Melzer from Austria lost to Czech qualifier Lukas Rosol. No.16 Verdasco of Spain and No.18 Simon of France won. No. 20 Florian Mayer of Germany, No. 27 Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus and No. 32 Kevin Anderson of South Africa all fell.
I caught the last set of the Rafa Nadal and Pablo Andujar match and let me tell you Rafa is incredible. He won the first two sets 7-5, 6-3 and you know is being tested by the tough fellow Spaniard. People are questioning Nadal. He ends up having one of his worst sets on clay in the third, trailing 1-5. This guy though is a fighter because he didnt give up. See I would of been like alright I'm done in the third and lets just get on to the fourth so i can start anew. But Rafa he comes back and ties it 5-5 and ends up winning in a tie break 7-6 (4). That is why this guy is one of my favorite tennis players. Nadal should have an easy third round match against Antonio Veic of Croatia who knocked of No. 28 Nikolay Davydenko 3-6, 6-2, 7-5, 3-6, 6-1.
