Montanes/Hidalgo def. Aspelin/Cermak 7-6, 1-6, [23-21] !

A new "champions tie-break" record - Estoril, 1st round doubles:
Montanes/Ramirez-Hidalgo def. Aspelin/Cermak 7-6(2), 1-6, [23-21] after saving 5 match points

The fragmentary progress of the champions tie-break:
4:8, 8:9, 9:10, 10:11, 12:11, 12:13, 14:13, 15:14, 16:15, 17:16, 18:17, 19:18, 20:19, 20:21, 23:21

The previous record in "champions tie-break":
A.Clement/N.Escude - K.Braasch/A.Olhovskiy 7-5, 6-7, [18-16] (Marseille 2002)
The longest tie-break in doubles: 26-24 (Wimbledon 1985)

I thought of you Voo with this result, you'd be like an alcoholic with a free pass at a brewery with this score.

The singles players triumphed over the doubles specialists. Huge breaker, good to see.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

They would kick Federer´s ass ig they would be in his half of the draw.
This is absolutely great. They are unbeatable. They even win when it is that close.

A very good win, had plenty of opportunities to do it sooner though The champions TB probably took the same amount of time as the 6-1 second set!

Jim Thomas - Max Mirnyi - Jordan Kerr - Rohan Bopanna - Andy Roddick - Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi - Ilia Bozoljac - Chris Haggard - Jan-Michael Gambill - Donald Young - Nathan Healey - Lleyton Hewitt - Jamie Murray - Olivier Rochus - James Blake - Vince Spadea - Tim Henman - John Isner - Travis Parrott - Paul Goldstein - Tim Henman - Wes Moodie - Arnaud Clement - Michael Russell - Jeff Coetzee

An example of contradictory infos:

- I was following a scoreboard and I saw 5 Mp's for Aspelin/Cermak but...

The official Estoril website writes:

"Montanes/Ramirez Hidalgo d [2] Aspelin/Cermak 76(2) 16 23-21 (Match TB) - Saved 6 M.P."
and in the other place -
"Montanes and Hidalgo saved eight match points in the Match Tie-break"

So, how many: 5, 6 or 8?

IMO they had saved 5 Mp's (1 M.P. on return - 9:10) and wasted 8 MP's before finally won on the 9th match point
