Absolutely brilliant play from the Indian; he held his nerve magnificently!

...

Atanu scores a perfect 10 in the third shot and wins the match! However, the Cuban's last effort of 10 won't be enough! 

...

Atanu wins 6-4 to march into the Round of 16!!!

...

And he does it!!!

...

Atanu has a 1-point lead now! If he gets a 10, he'll win.

...

Atanu scores a perfect 10 in the second shot, however, Adrian scores a 9! 

...

And Atanu breaks away with a 10! Brilliant stuff by the Indian.

...

Both men score 9 in the first round of this set! This is rather tense.

...

5th Set:

Atanu starts with a 9 in the first shot, while the Cuban international too scores a 9!

...

Good start by Atanu in the last set! Let's see how Perez responds.

...

Quite a comeback this from Perez; he has been just as calm and composed as the hard-charging Atanu.

...

Perez wins the 4th set with a score of 28 (8 10 10) while the Indian archer manages to score 27 (9 9 9)!  Both are level on 4-4! 

...

If this last set ends in a tie, we will have a shootout to determine the winner.

...

Atanu falters in the last shot, and we're up to 4-4 now. Whoever wins the next 2 set points, wins the match!

...

Perez scores a perfect 10 in the third set, Atanu manages to score 9! 

...

Neck-and-neck again, both men at 18. What does Perez have up his sleeve? Turns out he has perfection up his sleeve! A 10 for him.

...

Perez scores a perfect 10 in the second set, however, the Indian archer manages a 9! 

...

And Atanu takes the lead! He just has to maintain this lead now to reach the Round of 16.

...

4th Set:

Perez starts with an eight while the Atanu starts with a 9! 

...

Atanu looks really confident out there, despite the last score. 

...

Atanu now leads 4-2, and can still win this if he takes the next 2 set points. Pressure, pressure, pressure!

...

Perez wins the third set with a score 27 (9 9 9) while the Indian archer manages to score of 26 (9 9 8)! Atanu still leads 4-2!

...

That's the first real 'miss' by Atanu, and he concedes 2 set points to Perez! Well, he had to fall off his incredible pace at some point today.

...

Perez again scores a 9 in the second shot, again the Indian archer scores a 9 and level the score!

...

And it's absolutely neck-and-neck so far in this set! Both men on 18.

...

A 10 would be really handy for Atanu here.

...

Turns out he can only equal it. But still a decent start from the Indian!

...

3rd Set:

Perez starts with a respectable 9 while the Indian archer scores a 9 as well! 

...

Perez starts well again, with a 9. Can Atanu better that?

...

Atanu is just 2 set points away from a place in the Round of 16. Judging by the way he has shot so far, we're willing to bet he gets it done!

...

Atanu wins the third set with a score of 29 (9 10 10) while Perez scores 26 (8 10 8)! Atuna leads 4-0, just need 1 more set to win the match and go through the next round! 

...

A cool drink for Atanu after that brilliant set. But does he need any cooling down at all? He seems to have ice in his veins!

...

And perfection from Atanu again! He is on FIRE!!!!

...

Atanu needs an 8 to win this set.

...

And that's how you answer perfection - Perez's 10 was followed by a 10 from Atanu too!

...

Perez scores a perfect 10 in the second shot and the Indian archer matches it a 10 of his own! 

...

Good start by Atanu again. He hasn't shot lower than 9 so far today!

...

2nd Set:

Perez starts with an eight while the Indian archer scores a 9! 

...

The two archers get ready to take aim once more. This is quite thrilling to watch!

...

Atanu wins the first set with a score of 28 (9 9 10) while the Cuban managed to score 25 (8 10 7)! Atanu leads 2-0! 

...

The break between sets in archery has got to be nerve-racking for the players. What must they be thinking about in those tense couple of minutes?

...

Atanu scores a perfect 10 in the third shot while the Cuban manages a 7! 

...

And now Atanu is back to his perfect ways! A 10 to finish the first set.
