Zuzana - BlackyM 7-6 (13-11), 6-4
I cannot say that I wasn't lucky in some moments...but at every single key moment he was lucky as hell
In first set I made a break for 1-0, at 2-0 I had 15-40...and I knew where is he going to serve...so I picked that side...and I was right, he served there...do you know what happened...
Ball just went trough my player like he is not there.
At 4-3, and my serve...at 40-30...he was on the baseline, and I was on the net...so he tried to pass me with passing shot...he had no chance of doing that...but as it was laggy (160 ping)...i wanted to move my player just half step back...but game interpreted it like I wanted to make a lob...and player made a lob...so he practically clear shot...and he made another passing, I was on that ball but player missed it
at 40-40...identical situation happened...so he won BP...and he won a point with lob on that BP
That thing that happened twice in a row in one game...never happened before in that match, and later in that match
But thats not all...
I pressed hard on his...i won another BP, but i received ace on it...he made 22 aces...far too much
in tiebreak i made minibreak for 3-1, at 5-4 and my two serves, he got back...and then we were just switching set points...at 11-11...he made a drop shot in opposite corner...and first time in the set he didn't get on the net...but he went guessing sides...of course that he guessed it right...and he made a passing shot that i couldn't catch
In second set...he made a break...after my player missing a lob because of lag...game just stopped for me for a sec, and i couldn't do shit...at 3-2 I got rebreak...so I was back in the game.
At 3-3, and 15-40, i saved two BPs...and then at 40-40 IT HAPPENED, my luck knocked me down for the last time in the match...
First after I won a point for 40-40, i was sure that I saved my ass...but oohh I was wrong...I set my fingers on wrong buttons...I play with numpad (8456), but i set my fingers on 956+...so I served in the middle, and then just kept standing on the same spot...so ofc he won a point, and another BP
Thats not all...
at his BP...i served on the side...he as usual made drop shot in the opposite corner...he did that approx. 40 times in a match...but this one was special...this one hitted the net...and ball just fell on my side of the court...
Somehow I did caught it...but i was too near to the net...and I sent it back in the net.
Y...thats how I lost
I even won more points that Zuzana...84-83...I had more winners, and less errors...in a matter of fact I had 3 errors in whole match...one on the last BP
