BlackyM - A. Dimitrov 6-7(5), 6-4, 7-6(6)
I'm just stupid...I am my worst enemy...i don't want to be disrespectful toward Anton, he is really good, tough in rallies, he also really knew how to use my stupidity against me by punishing my every weaker shot and how to press my second serve, of which I won maybe 30% points in whole match. But, I just had sooo many chances, I would always make some stupid error, which is not necessarily out, but also missed balls, wrong movement, wrong pick of the shot, or side...Those things appeared in toooooo many situations. I can honestly say, I played one of the worst matches in last few weeks.
I broke him immediately for 2-0, and then missed ball two times, then missed empty court for 0-40, won two points for 30-40, and then made DF...and he rebroke. Later I had few times 0-30...but like I said I'm stupid!
In tiebreak he made first minibreak, I got it back immediately, very next point on my serve he made another minibreak, but like the first time, I got it back and had 5-4.
Then I pressed him, and he had no other option or he accidentally made a lob while I was on the baseline (just one time in whole match), on which I, God knows why, played slice, and gave him practically point which he took for 5-5. Then at 5-6, he made another minibreak for the set.
I broke him for 2-1, and kept my serve, I saved one BP in that set by ace. I won't repeat that I had chances for another break, but no other BPs.
I broke him immediately for 1-0, then at 2-0 I had 0-30, and 3 times missed ball (2 times on weak 2nd serve) and made one unforced error. But I kept my serve quite good so I was positive that I'll win it. At 4-3, I had 30-0, then I made double fault and error after he pressed my 2nd serve, but I won one short point for 40-30, then again he pressed me with deep return and won a point for deuce.
Then I made another error, and at BP he pressed my 2nd serve once more.
In this part he started to play much better on return, I couldn't make an ace. So in few mins I got from 4-2 to 4-5, in that game I had 30-0, but again I had trouble when he got to 30-30. I somehow managed to get this set to tiebreak. But I was angry and frustrated that I didn't finished it already, and now at this moment he played better.
Tiebreak started by me mini-breaking him for 1-0, very next point he made brilliant return for 1-1. After that I was so angry. I knew that I can't make an ace, and that he'll press me in every point, so I had to make another minibreak. Unfortunately I didn't, but neither did he. God knows how. So we went to 6-6, when I made good deep return which he missed.
Last point I made really questionable and easy to get drop shot, but a guess he didn't expected of me to play that stupid shot at that moment, and he wasn't able to get it, just by a scratch.
