omg what a match.
he was leading 51 in the first and i was very angry about myself as i had game point in almost every game. so i came back to 53 but he was serious to conclude the set.
in the second, i had luck with some mistakes he did in one of his serve game and broke. i think he had 0 bp after this.
the drama is in the last, i broke immediately to lead 20. then he had to stop for 5 mn and i was able to lead 31 after that. but he came back to 3-3, then 4-3 40-0 for him on my serve. id exactly know i ssaved them, but i did. after that he had 54 40-0 on my serve again (3 mp) and i saved them with one good point from me and two returns out from him. in the tb, i really had a chance to take two mini breaks but i missed volleys and he lobbed me surprisingly at 5-5 to have this break. then we had a good rally but i think i put it out.
i am sad to lose, mainly in a 500 final, but this match was so exciting that i am happy too.
thx voja and gl in iw...
oh and as i said to stajus, i think i proved i am a good player on clay by taking a set to schmith and almost beating voja. i don't want to feel proud, but it's a great feeling to worry the best clay players
