Togtdyalttai def. Chiller(1) 7-6(5) 7-6(2)
We had 1 break each in this match, and we had the game force us to start over two times. The first time, there was about a day before we started again. That time, the score was 2-1 30-40. I was serving, and he happened to win that first point back. So we served out the first set until the tiebreak. Throughout the first set, he kept guessing where I would smash the ball, which was pretty much what kept him in it. I'm not really sure how I won the
The second set wasn't quite as good as the first. Although we each were able to hold serve, I was the one putting more pressure on his serve. In fact, at 30-40 at 1-2 on his serve, we had to start over again. Anyway we served it out until the tiebreak, where I won easier this time.
Record (since coming back from ban): 24-6
