BlackyM - Federer Roger 6-7 (5), 6-4, 6-3
Oh what a match, I tought Ill lose...he was so close of winning it, but somehow, I turned it all around
I wasn't feeling the movement, I was doing a lot of movement errors, but his errors and some of my winners kept me in the set. Altought he had like 4-5 Break Points, but somehow I saved it. I really felt that he is playing better at that moment.
Somehow at 5-5 (not 4-4 as he said), I manged to break him, after 4 his errors out of 6 points, I really didn't do anything special that game. But next game, I did again few movement errors and few "normal" errors, so he broke back
In tiebreak, there were a lot of minibreaks, but one that probably decided the set was my ONLY Double Fault of the match, when my 88mph serve went in out.
I started again with movement errors, I was moving really bad, I was so angry at myself, as I was practically letting him to bash me around. He was also returning great, with fast deep returns, on that way he broke me at 1-1 in 2nd set, after 3 return winners (+ my movement after serve).
Then at 2-4 he had BP to finish the match, But I saved it.
And then at 3-4, miraculously my movement became brilliant, my positioning got almost prefect, and I started to push him, and attack him when chances were opening, few of my deep shots got him out of rythm and I took advantage of it, and broke back.
At 5-4 I knew, that he might be a little bit nervous, so I wasnt forcing anything, I just started to play smart and waited for him to make any error that I can exploit so I broke him again for a Set.
Same thing, I knew he is agitate after losing 2nd set on that way, that he is probably worried that he might lose already won match. So at 1-0 I pressed hard and broke him again for 2-0.
Then at 3-0 I took one game to calm myself down, and just ran around without much thinking. But at 4-1, as I felt that Im playing better at that moment I pressed again, and broke him again.
AT 5-1 I had match point, and situation where he must guess where am I going to shoot, he guessed it right and made a counter winner, 2 points after, he broke me for 5-2.
But I had too big lead and confirmed it at 5-3
