Kiril def. Dr.Ivo 7-5,6-1!
OOH, i always end up losing this tense doubles matches
in this case, first set was tense actually...he played very well, deserved to win, but i could win that first set with set point
...i hate when the ball travels, my partner doesnt play it and it ends up on the line eventually, that happened few times
1.set...we opened up with 2 very very close games but he prevailed, saved some break or game points and got to 2-0 and then he broke again...but i put up a great fight, i played awesome and i got myself back in the set with 2 breaks of serve, i was leading 5-4 and than i had set point which he saved with a winner because of my stupidity
then he broke me at 5-5 with a dash of luck and than when he served for the set i had break point but i wasnt able to win it and he won it 7-5
2.set...i guess i completely fell apart playing very very bad and doing error after error, and he just continued to play the way he plays all the time and broke me 2 times for 4-0 lead
then i won my only game in second set but when he won service game for 5-1 it was pretty much it as i played last game poorly to let him broke me to love for victory!
The difference was that he just made less mistakes than me, he doesnt make much errors and that won him a match...he was also better in those net battles, he just cant miss in that situation
we both had about the same number of net cords so i cant complain about that...things would maybe go different way if i won the first set, but i didnt so he deserved to win
GG and GL!
