Dodig - Raonic 6-2, 7-6.

I was expecting Milos to have a tough task, because Dodig looks in good form, but this was just depressing.
Not just he looks very tentative on grass, but he never should have lost that TB, after Dodig served 2 DF. Both times he gave immediately back the points on his serve, with poor shots.

On a positive side, Finally Fernando strings 2 wins together, he dismissed Ramos with 6-4, 6-0

And Raonic is out. The faith in the Young Guns slides ever lower.

We have a Simon v Lopez final. They get to re-enact this matchup on Tuesday in the 1st round of Wimbledon as well.

Feliciano has a nice game for grass. I hope he wins it.

A lefty with a great serve and nice touch at the net. Great on grass alright. Form has been poor of late and I don't see him going far at Wimbledon personally but would be nice to see him win here.

Agreed on all counts, Front, including his results of late. ¡Vamos, Feli!

Very strange to see them to play each other back to back in a matter of a few days, while they have met only once more than 5 years ago.

A weird coincidence, they (Deliciano and Gillou) have the same age as Stan and Nicholas in the other final. A 31y old (Lopez) against a 28y (Simon).
I keep scrutinizing the players ages, just to demonstrate to El Dude, that the players DO NOT peak at 24-26y.

And Lopez gets the win! It was very tight until the 3rd, which I missed. Don't know what happened to Simon there. (Two TB sets then a bagel?)
