RS beat Stefan Edberg 6-4 6-7(3) 7-6(5)
WHAT A MATCH!!
First of all i'd like to say he's such a fair player! I think we both deserved to win this 59 minutes thriller!
First set there was only a break. At 2-2 I broke him and then at *3-2 he had a BP but i saved it. We held serves till the end of the set and I won it 6-4.
In the second we started by helding serve. Then he got to a *3-1 lead but I broke him. Then there were no more breaks. The Tie-Break was all his.
The third was a rollercoaster. I mean, he started on fire racing to a 4-0
lead!!!! I was muttering to myself: I gotta fight!! I can't lose like this. And I did. After that his next 3 service games all went to deuces. I broke at *4-1, got to *4-3, more deuces but I had no bps this game. Then at *5-4 I broke him again after some deuces. Then I had 40-15 on my serve but he got to deuce and I had two quick points. He held either to love or to 15 and then in the TB he started with the mini-break but i won the next two points on his serve. It was enough to win the TB.
There were lots of rallies in this match some ended with errors, many with winners... He wasn't happy for screwing such a lead but he wasn't that mad either.
Sometimes it's hard to believe how he chose his partner.
Anyway, good luck in your next matches (except the one with Kyujii!)
