Tati Cornet def R. Nadal 76(5) 76(7)
It was a great match, we had to stop for one hour between the first and the second set because he had to dinner.
Even if it's clay, i really wanted to play my net game as much as possible and it was ok on my serve. He had 0/4 in the first and i had no bp. I expected longer rallies as he is a great defender, but it was really tough.
The second was surprising, he broke me (but now i am unable to remember when), i broke back twice and served for the match, but then he was really good. We both manage to hold until the tb and i had to save a set point in it before winning. Gl for your next tournament Jean-Yves
Tati Cornet def KZ 63 36 64
What a match. One more time, i decided to invade the net and it was rather successful. I miss two or three bp to lead 63 31 and then he broke me at the end of the second. We had a lot of rallies and it's hard to say who was better in this part of game. After the second set, i thought about these bp i missed, but i tried to forget it and i kept playing my game. I was a little bit lucky to break him as he missed the ball (but he was also in the second as i did one df, the only one in the whole match). I had the feeling he didn't try to fight in the last game on my serve. Still it was a great match.
Congrats for the final and gl in Atlanta
