Rafa and Fernando Verdasco defeated the #8 seeds Herbert/Mahut in doubles today in Montreal by a score of 7-6(8), 6-7(2), 10-4. Since they were on court 9, there was no coverage (boooo!), so all we have to go by in judging the match is what we saw on livescores – and that included a lot of fighting from behind and break points saved. So, party on, Rafando!
