- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 7-6(5) 6-0 - GAME, SET & MATCH! Tipsarevic, who hadn't won a match since the Australian Open before this tournament remember, has come through the final set without dropping a game. He steps up to a second serve from Anderson and belts a backhand winner off the return of serve to book his place in the fourth round where he will face either Gilles Simon or Grega Zemlja.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 7-6(5) 4-0 - BREAK! This time around Anderson manages to find two first serves instead of just the one but another double fault, his second in the set, costs him dearly as Tipsarevic breaks for a second straight game to firmly take control of this final set.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 7-6(5) 2-0 - BREAK! We told you we'd be checking in with this clash throughout the third set, so here is your first update. Tipsarevic has gone an early break up, Anderson finding just one first serve in his opening game and throwing in a double fault as well. The Serb is not going to let that escape and forces his way to the breakthrough. Can he hold on to it though?
- - We're going to move over to the Stadium court now where world number one Novak Djokovic is about to get underway against Somdev Devvarman. We will check back in on this match throughout the final set, however.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 7-6(5) - SET! Ouch! A double fault from Anderson to concede the set is painful for the South African. And Tipsarevic is still alive!
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 6-6 (6-5) - TIE-BREAK! Great defence from Tipsarevic to force Anderson into the error of netting a forehand and it's back all square. The South African salvages a point on the second attempt behind serve as he races into the net with an emphatic smash winner. But Tipsarevic levels up again with an ace before earning himself a set point when Anderson hits a forehand long down the centre of the court
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 6-6 (2-4) - TIE-BREAK! Anderson edges clear of Tipsasrevic heading into the change of ends, as he finds a forehand down the line that goes for a winner.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 6-6 - Anderson hits a couple of sloppy errors, including a forehand a good two metres beyond the baseline, to help Tipsarevic hold and force the tie-break in this second set.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 5-6 - Anderson leaves Tipsarevic serving to stay in this match for a second time after holding another fairly comfortable service game.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 5-5 - Another solid service hold from Tipso as Anderson sends a backhand return sailing well long down the line. This is battling stuff from a low-in-confidence Tipsarevic, who has not won a match in two months.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 4-5 - Anderson holds to 30 with a great couple of volleys, the last of which is a backhand down the line past Tipso who races back and attempts the crowd-pleasing between-the-legs shot with his back to the net. He can't land it in play, though, the ball sailing wide across court to hand Anderson the hold. Tipsarevic will have to serve to keep this match alive after the change of ends.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 4-4 - An impressive service game from Tipsarevic as he holds to 15 in what is his most comfortable service hold since the early stages of the first set. Still on serve in this second set
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 3-4 - Anderson produces a cracking forehand winner down the line, running round the ball, when just does not bounce up after hitting the court. It brings up two game points and, although he fails to take advantage of either of them, he does eventually go on to hold with from deuce.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 3-3 - Tipso completely mis-hits a forehand after doing brilliantly well to open up the court. The Serb and everyone in the crowd switches off but luckly Anderson was still watching the ball because eventually it comes down in play and the South African is there to hit the smash winner. He is handed two break points with a jump forehand down the line from Tipso that goes wide. But the Serb saves the both and eventually goes on to hold with a smash winner. That was tough for Tipso.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 2-3 - Anderson hesitates and stumbles and waits and eventually puts a smash, which to be fair did get held up by the wind, into the bottom of the net to concede the first point of the game. But he quickly recovers and races through the rest of his service game, holding with an ace - his fourth of the match.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 2-2 - Tipsarevic has landed just one serve so far in this set and is clearly struggling but Anderson lets him off the hook, throwing in a couple of errors including a forehand into the net to help the Serb hold
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 2-1 - Anderson squanders a first game point with a poor forehand into the net but he quickly recovers and goes on to hold to get himself fully back on track in this second set
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 1-1 - BREAK! Anderson breaks right back, nullifying Tipso's early break in this second set. The 6' 8" Anderson crouches down low to a cross court backhand from Tipso and belts a change-of-direction backhand winner straight down the line, catching just the very edge of the line, on his way to the break.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 1-0 - BREAK! Back-to-back double faults from Anderson hands Tipsarevic an early break point in the second set. The South African saves it with a fantastic second serve followed by a huge off-forehand winner, back behind the Serb, that was probably much closer to being out than Anderson would have liked. Tipso squanders a second break point, netting a return, but finally does take a third when Anderson nets a forehand while retreating behind the baseline.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-6 - SET! Anderson puts a tricky backhand return into play (nothing special just enough to stay in the point) and it pays off as Tipso sends his backhand reply wide down the line. That sets the South African level at deuce, which he turns into a set point with a ferocious backhand winner across court. And the first set does go to Anderson, Tipso crouching down low to the court and putting his backhand into the net.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-5 - Anderson comes through a tough service hold, back up from that top end of the court again, holding to 30 with a big first serve that Tipso can only net in reply. The Serb will have to serve to stay in this opening set after the change of ends.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-4 - BREAK! Tipso can't buy a first serve in this game and Anderson takes full advantage, earning himself a break point and then leaping all over another second serve and sending a rocket of a forehand back across court for the forehand winner that gets him back on level terms.
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-3 - Anderson is much more comfortable serving from this side of the court than the one he served from last time around as he holds to love to keep Tipso with just the one break lead
- - TIPSAREVIC 4-2 - Tipso eases through a comfortable service hold to consolidate the break and inch closer towards the first set
- - TIPSAREVIC 3-2 - BREAK! Tipsarevic doesn't have to do anything too special to take the first break, just getting the ball back in play and waiting for the errors from Anderson. The South African first hits a forehand wide across court (confirmed by hawkeye) to hand Tipso a first break point. And he then puts a forehand into the white tape at the top of the net to concede his serve.
- - TIPSAREVIC 2-2 - Anderson steps up just inside the baseline and rattles a forehand winner across court to deny Tipsarevic a second hold to 15. But the Serb quickly amends, holding on the next point when Anderson nets a forehand
- - TIPSAREVIC 1-2 - Anderson fires down his second ace of the day on his way to another hold to 15 to keep his service advantage in the opening stages of this set
- - TIPSAREVIC 1-1 - Tipso also opens his account with a solid hold to 15, the only point he drops coming on the penultimate point of the game when he sends a forehand long
- - TIPSAREVIC 0-1 - Anderson opens the match with a pretty straightforward hold to 15, wrapping up the game with an ace down the centre of the court.
