OOh, great match...sooo close...i alwaaaays end up losing tense doubles matches, i never won one
He had sooo much luck with his partner hitting the top of the net as he won like 20,25 points during the match that way, unbeliviable
1.set...very weird thing in first set is that he was leading 4-0, i was absolutely out of the match mentally in that stage and then i regrouped, got to 5-4, he won a game and then we had one reaaaally long game at 5-5, my parnters serve...i won that one and then i broke him with some great play to win the set
2.set...i won first game and then he started to play really good, got to 4-1, i broke back once and then there was that one day pause ...after that, he broke me after i had 40-15, he got to 5-2, i won 2 games but he closed it out with very good game
3.set...very very tense set...we were winning games one after another, it was 1-1,2-2,3-3 and then he made a move by winning 2 games in a row, i maybe played that 2 games a bit worse then i played whole match, but i responded great, got to 5-4 and then broke him for 5-5, but he was then very lucky in that game with some unbeliviable pick ups and defensive skills and he then served it out to 30 with great play of his partner!
He defends fantastic and he had much luck with net, i had it too at some points, but im very satisfied with the way i played, in the end key was luck and maybe his experience in big, long matches...GG and GL!
