Dr.Ivo def. Pablo 6-3,3-6,7-6(3)!
Very hard match, he has great shots, i was struggling a lot against his serve, he aced me bunch of times
If he didnt had a lapse of concentration at the beginning, who knows what would happened...he had just one break point which he used, i had a lot of them in the first set and maybe 1 or 2 in the second and third
1.set...he started very bad as he made a lot of errors to hand me a break at 1-0 and i used it to seal a set 6-3...i could make another break as i had extra 4 or 5 BP's for a double break
2.set...he played much better, his serve was an enigma for me, i couldnt do a thing...he broke me at 1-0 with some fantastic returns and he held his serve till the end although i had a break back point at 5-3...i would say 10-15 aces in this set, i was powerless
3.set...no one did a thing on opponent's serve and we headed to a breaker...he started of great as he made me miss a half volley at the net with great passing shot...he got to 2-0, but i managed to get a minibreak back...we got to 3-3 where i reached the net on his serve and hit a volley winner
I held my 2 service points easily and he made a DF on my first match point
Very hard match, could gone both ways, i'm really impressed with his serve...GG and GL!
