MAYER 6-4 6-7(4) 1-6 2-6 - GAME, SET & MATCH - Alejandro Falla is through to the third round, knocking out German Florian Mayer. The 24th seed completely lost his way after dropping that second set on the breaker and it's the Colombian who progresses as Mayer hits a backhand return of serve into the bottom of the net. Fall progresses to a meeting with either Lukas Kubot or Carlos Berlocq

-

MAYER 6-4 6-7(4) 1-6 - SET - Colombian Falla is firmly taking control of this clash now as he races through a speedy third set for the loss of just the one game to leave himself needing just one more to book a place in the third round

-

MAYER 6-4 6-7(4) - SET - Germany's Mayer has bounced back in his topsy-turvy clash against Falla by sneaking the second set 7-4 in the breaker. Both men are struggling to hold serve as this match continues to rumble one

- 

MAYER 6-4 5-5 - Break back! Mayer digs in and stays in the second set. Attritional stuff out on court three.

- 

MAYER 6-4 4-5 - Break! Falla does it again, and the wily South American takes charge of the second set, for which he will serve.

- 

MAYER 7-6 3-2 - Break back for Falla! Just when we were saying Mayer's serve looked strong, he leys it slip!

- 

MAYER 6-4 3-1 - Break! The 20th seed is starting to take control of this match now - he moves ahead in the second, and apart from that one game at the end of the first set, his serve has rarely looked in danger.

-

MAYER 6-4 - SET! Mayer has two set points on the Falla serve - he hits a return long, then nets as Falla responds. But the danger is still there, and Mayer finally clinches the set when the left-handed Falla hits a forehand wide.

- 

MAYER 5-4 - An epic game finally goes Mayer's way. I think that was seven deuces they played. How much of a psychological body blow will that be for Falla, failing to take a big chance there?

- 

MAYER 4-4 - Falla has a break point, but Mayer gets himself out of jail with a couple of big service winners. A real ding dong of a game, four deuces so far...

- 

MAYER 3-3 - The big German has a break point but cannot convert in a long, baselines rally. The Colombian plays two-fisted off both sides and doesn't generate a lot of pace. He looks a little like Fabrice Santoro, without the array of outrageous trick shots.

- 

MAYER 2-1 - Over on court three, 20th-seed Florian Mayer is in action against Colombia's Alejandro Falla - no breaks yet, with the big German holding serve.
