BlackyM - Mr. Schmit 6-7 (4), 6-3, 5-7
Every set was tough, and pretty equal.
First set we both had 1 BP, however there were no breaks.
In tiebreak I had chance for minibreak at 3-2, when he guessed side right at one moment, and caught another tough shot to turn around that point. At 3-4 my concentration fell and he got 2 minibreaks for 3-6, I saved 1 set point, however I couldnt another.
In that set I was doing a lot of movement errors, when I would press both directions at once, so I just kept standing on the place. While he wasnt returning that well.
He started with break point, I saved it. My services were tough, but at 2-2 I got BP and broke him. He almost got back at 4-3 when he had another BP, however I saved it. In the next game I got 4 BP/Set points, and took 4th one for 6-3
I started slow, and after two really close points on my serve and one of my errors he managed to break me for 1-3. But at 2-3 I got 0-40 and broke back from my 2nd BP of that game. Then at 4-3 I had 0-30 his serve, but played dreadfully so he managed to keep his serve. Then at 5-4 Luck got involved, of course in crucial moment. On 0-30, on his serve, first he made an ace, and then we had 50+ rally when DESY appeared and we had to replay the point, he took advantage of another first serve and got to 30-30. Then we played again point, where everything was going my way, and then DESY appeared again so we had to replay that point to again. In replayed point I missed a ball so he got to 40-30, I got to deuce, but couldnt break him.
Then at 5-5 my concentration fell, I made 2 errors, he was moving great he got to 0-40, I managed to sve one BP, but he took another. Then at 5-6 on his serve for the match, he had 2 match point 40-15, but I made two winners, one after good shot, 2nd after he missed a ball. However, at Deuce, he tried serve-volley I saw it, but I dont know why I just returned very slow easy ball, which he volleyed for 3rd match point.
Then again I made wrong return, ball went short and slow, and he took it with nice diagonal shot on the line for a win.
