Dr.Ivo def. Mohamed 6-7(1),6-2,6-4!
It was very good match, i played awesome, maybe near my best...i had some luck with the net, sorry for that, but he had it too
I guess he can play better, but it wasnt his partner's day, he screwed up a lot of balls...connection was laggy at some moments, but it was solid
It was really hard to break serves today, there were 5 breaks, he made just one
1.set...we held to our serves strongly until 3-3 where he had 1 or 2 break points, i dont know, but i saved it great...i played great on break points especially...and then at 5-5 he had 0-40, but i managed to pull even that out and i had set point in the following game, but he played smart to save it...in the TB, i won the first point and then everything went his way, i missed like 3,4 balls in a row and he used it to win it 7-1
2.set...maybe the crucial moment of the match happened in the first game of the second set, where the first break was made...i broke his serve and i was strongly holding on to it and at 4-2 i managed to break him once more and seal the set...i dominated in the set as the score shows
3.set...it was very similar to the second, i dont remember if i broke in the first or in the third game, but i was controling it totally as he got a bit nervous and impatient...i broke again at 3-1 and held for 5-1...it seemed prety much over as i had a match point at 5-1, but he responded with some goods to make me serve for the match...i couldnt make it as my partner did some stupid mistakes and he broke me for the first time in the match...it was looking like a comeback as he won his service game easily and i was made to serve out the match again...this time i did it in a great manner, i played really concentrated and hit some great shots to seal the victory!
GG and GL Moha!
