Re: Week 36 : Sevilla (Entry List)

Epic match in some way

In first set both players exchanged service games with relative ease until *5/6 with Cervantes serving when Ciric had two SPs. In TB Serb it was 6/2* for Ciric but he wasted 4 SPs and ended the set with DF.
Ciric was simply the better player in the second set. After taking the only break in the match he won this part 6/3.
Cervantes saved one break point in second or third service game of 3rd set. Ther won service games quite easy, but Ciric was forced to defend two MPs in 12th game of decider. But then he won 4 points in a row just with the serve. In TB he had comfortable result, but hit easy put-away-forehand into the sky at *5/4. Unforced error from Cervantes on Spaniard's serve was the last point of the match.

Ciric was the better player, he should have won it much easier but he didn't do his best on big points. Luckily for him, Cervantes was even worse and managed to smash a few more racquets. Great serving from Ciric should be noted.
