(reserve match)Kyuuji def R.Nadal 6-3 6-4 5-7 5-7 7-5
Finnaly i won't go further that the 3rd round..
I was confident because i beat him some days before in a training match, even if it was in a tiebreak, but this time my level of play wasn't good enough.
This match was a great fight, a fight with my serve (i gave him 10 times ) and a groundstrokes fight for debreaking.. Especially my 2nd serve was awful, and my 1st wasn't perfect too.
1st set : He did start playing very well, while i wasn't, and started leading 3-0. I managed to debreak, came back but one more time my serve wasn't good enough, break.
2nd set : he served 82% 1st serves, i was still playing bad with 15 winners - 15 errors.
3rd set : i had to win this one, so after his break in the beginning of the 3rd i was quite worried.. but after much fight i managed to come back, and then break again at 5-5, he nearly gave me the set giving me very weak 2nd serves.
4th : same scenario, he had the break, he served for the match but i managed to came back again, and won this 4th set.
5th : I was confident, a little too much because i got broke at the beginning of the set, i was still excited by the fact of winning that 4th, so i wasn't concentrated enough, he served for the match again at 5-4 but i came back one more time, and finally he took my serve at 5-5 with a double fault after a desync :'(
Congrats to him he played very well especially on return, i wasn't good enough but i know that if i can remove these stupid errors (bad serves, balls in the middle of the court) i will be able to be very good again.
This match gave me much much emotions, but a little less than me vs Voja at paris, which was truly the best.
