Maxicq def. Dr.Ivo 7-6(12),6-7(5),7-6(5)!
Very much of a big drama happened, it was really tense match
I didnt have a single break point in whole match, he had like 4,5 of them, all in the final set, so i would really say he deserved to win
1.set...nothing was happening when we were serving, we were holding comfortably and got to the breaker where i made an early minibreak but couldnt use it as he got it back with stunning return...then he got set point at 6-5, i got it at 7-6, he at 8-7, me at 9-8, he at 10-9, me at 11-10 and finally he made a minibreak at 12-12
, i really dont remember the situation
2.set...pretty much the same with the difference that i had the chance at deuce in 2 games, but couldnt go further...we got to the breaker where i made a minibreak at 3-2 with one amaaazing volley
i held my serve and won it on my third set point
3.set...in third set, he played fantastic...not till 3-2, but from then on...woow
he had 3 break points in that game, he earned it with some lucky and some fantastic returning, but i saved all of them with my 2nd serve, i dont know how
then at 4-3, he had another break point and i saved it...at 5-4 i held easily, but at 6-5 he had another break point and of course that was a match point...but i managed to save it and it was another tiebreak...we held till 3-3, and then at my service point, i got the first serve in, got to the net, but my player didnt play the volley!
i was extremely lucky in the next point with a net cord which gave me a minibreak back, he won his next serve point and then at 4-5 down my player again made stupid thing...i served, stayed on the baseline, he got the return in the middle of the court with safe strike and i wanted to put a drop shot in, but my player hit a very very high drop shot and he just slammed it by me standing at the net...i saved one match point with my serve, but i was powerless on his serve as he hit a forehand winner!
Great match, you deserved to win although you had much luck in the first set TB
GG and GL further in the tournament!
