S.Williamz d. Bajko 6-3 6-7 3-6 6-4 11-9
My best match, ever.
Ok, the story of this match:
In first set, I started really well, Bajko was still sleeping, I kept my services easily and broke him twice.
In the second, Bajko played better, he broke me, and was on his way to set victory, but then I broke back and we headed to a tiebreak. The tiebreak was crazy, there were double faults for both and some lucky net cords for me, but I still managed to lose it by playing last two points poorly.
Third set, Bajko was on fire, he sliced very well and played great at the net, there was nothing I could do.
Fourth set, Bajko was still bulldozing me, I barely managed to stay in the match, I was sure he was gonna win the match, he was so comfortably winning points but at 4-4 , he played three terrible points, I hit three lobs over him and he missed all of them!!! So, set 6-4 for me.
Final set, I started serving and volleying more, that helped me, he didn't break me so easily anymore, and it was very even till 5-5. Then I played a really sharp game, broke him to go 6-5. This game, as I was serving for the match, I got very nervous and Bajko played really well, I had numerous match points but couldn't convert any!
We both held serves easily till 9-9, and I managed to broke, and was serving for the match again. Again I had many matchpoints, and obviously it was really hard to finish the match. But then finally after a hard fought point I was able to close it out.
It was a wonderful match and much fun! Bajko is the one to watch out in future tournaments!!
