Re: 3 is the lucky number! Nole in Beijing QF vs Melzer

Nole was playing casually or a bit showily in the latter part of the match, except the last couple of games, as he knew nothing from the opponent could hurt him and the crowd enjoyed those fun points. Berlocq seemed to accept the fact without too much resistance until the game where Nole broke him third time of the set from 40-0. There was a point in the game that Berlocq wanted hawkeye review and Mo refused it saying it was too late. It was the right decision though. He clearly played the ball / challenged after Mo already called the score. (The graphic on TV showed it was on the line anyway.) But somehow he looked upset with the decision & also with Nole's eagerness not to let him win a game and started playing more seriously - no more smiles after an interesting exchange. Nole didn't catch the swing and kept making silly errors, before realizing he better be careful.
