The first half was terrible, but I thought he played well then, given the conditions and the fact it was his 1st match on clay, his FH was looking great, I enjoyed the match, by far the best one so far, people on this board are so negative.
I don't think he choked that badly, he looked just exhausted at the end, it doesn't help, especially with Hewitt bringing everything back. He also saved loads of MP.
I checked the articles on the tournament website, Eurosport, tennismagazin.de... Nobody mentions the story with Hewitt giving him back the point on MP, I guess they would say it.
Nothing in the interview of Hewitt on the tournament website either.
