BlackyM - Ankit 6-2, 7-6 (8), 6-2
Oh, i didn't expected that, it just came from nowhere. Brilliant 2nd set for Ankit, really good and really smart and intelligent play during 2nd and start of the 3rd set..
He has great potential.
He won first game, but then I won 5 games in a row, it wasn't easy but it wasn't hard also. Then at 5-1 he showed signs of imporvement, won almost lost service game, and almost broke me next game, but I saved my self with aces.
It really was like exact copy, a replay of the first. He had 0-1, then I got to 5-1, and had Set point on his serve. Well then things turn around. Someone obviously messed up the tape because everything changed. He save that game for 5-2, broke me for 5-3 after I saved 3 BPs, but couldn't saved 4th one, then 5-4, and another easy break for 5-5. So in just a few minutes I found my self from 5-1 and secure set to place where I was trailing 5-6 and confronted to dominating opponent. Somehow I won my game for 6-6, and we entered tiebreak.
I made minibreak for 1-0, then I made DF, and he made winner for 1-2. He won next two points also for 1-4. Two aces from me to 3-4, returned minibreak for 4-4, but he made an ace for 4-5. Next two point weren't easy for me, but I won them for 6-5. Then he made two aces for 6-7. Then I made an ace, and his error for 8-7. At 8-8, there was a great point, where I made parallel after aporx 20 rallys, that barely touched the line, maybe by a millimeter, probably less. And then on my serve finally won set 10-8
I broke him for 2-0, after really tough battle, then he finally started slowing down, at 3-0, I had 6 BPs, he saved them all, but he couldn't do nothing on my serve. And finally at 5-2, I took 1st BP of the game, and won the match.
