Federer - BlackyM 7-6 (5), 7-6 (18)
ya u red it right 18...20-18 he won second tiebreak...and not just that, tiebreak was unbelievable...but lets start from the beginning
I didn't seemed to me that I have delay, but I received 26 aces...so i'm not so sure in that...most of them were at the same place
In first set federer was winning his serves with ease, while on mine he was close but not too close in first several games.
Then at 4-3, he won a Break point, and it was tough point but he sent ball into out so I saved my butt.
Then at 4-4, I pressed hard, and I had 2 BPs (15-40), then I had huuuge chance to convert it in break, but he made a lob, which I thought that is going out, so I didn't wanted to hit it, but ball was in for millimeter and so he saved his ass.
In first set tiebreak...we both had few chances but we didn't convert it in minibreak, until at 5-5 he finally did, and confirmed it with his serve.
Second set was equal...we both had chances for chances
...but never BP, then tiebreak came.
Second set tiebreak was maginificent.
We both kept our serves until 6-6 and my serve. When I sent smash into the net and he was on the verge of victory.
But as I saved that kind of situations dozen of times I gave my best to do it even this time.
And yep I did, I saved that match point on his serve, and continued this uncommon tiebreak.
Then 20 points later, at 16-16 and my serve again, he broke me again, and had 17-16 and two serves...
Now happened some unbelievable funny thing...you can see it just in movies.
First I saved second match point, and got back into the match at 17-17, but I wasn't finished yet!
I made 2 minibreak in a row also, for 18-17 for me, set point and two serves.
Well, I was sure that I'm going to win it.
Then he was defending all the time in that point. I had amaizingly big chance because he was on the baseline and i was on the net...but somehow he won that point and now he saved his butt.
At 18-18, and one more my serve, he again won a point, this time easier then previous one, and found him self with 19-18, match point again, and third time on his serve.
This time he won it with an ace!
Sooo long TE 06...TE 09 here I come
