Upsets began the day at the Campbell’s Tennis Hall of Fame Championships in Newport. David Goffin was the first victim, falling 6-4. 6-3 to qualifier Benjamn Becker in 1:09. Becker played three matches on these courts over the last three days, and the experience showed. Goffin never led in the match, and Becker won all 13 first serve points in the second set. Then, Denis Istomin, the only Wimbledon 4th rounder in the field, was knocked out by qualifier Tim Smyczek 3 and 3. Finally, Izak Van Der Merwe took out Gilles Muller in 3.
Those expected to win who actually did included Sam Querrey in a 7-5, 7-6 (5) triumph over Alex Bogomolov, Jr. Querrey used 11 aces to get over Bogo. Kei Nishikori defeated Igor Sijsling 6-4, 6-4. And Milos Raonic came back from a first set loss to emerge past Ebden. Isner was the only one today who was able to beat his qualifier, knocking off Sergei Bubka.
