Why He Won: Giraldo dominated the match against the 25th-seeded Tomic. Tomic has been a star on the rise in the last few years. It’s hard to pinpoint a few reasons why Girardo won because he so thoroughly controlled the match. The three biggest reasons were Giraldo's serve, particularly his first serve, better success on his opponent's serve and his ability to break Tomic’s serve.
Giraldo’s first serve percentage was 80, which he turned into a 75 percent success rate on his first serve. He won 49 percent of the points on Tomic’s serve to just a 34 percent for Tomic on his serve. He was also six for 13 on his break-point chances to just one for 11 for Tomic.
Who Benefits: Fourth seed Andy Murray. Murray is Giraldo’s next opponent. This is the furthest that Giraldo has ever advanced on the ATP Tour. How well will he handle the pressure of playing a high-ranked opponent in the spotlight?
