Stockholm SF: ToJo def Blake 3-6, 6-1, 7-6 (3) - Saving 5 MP!!!



Awesome display Tojo!!

Blake was 6-5* 40-0 up in the third set, had one more MP in that game and one MP at 5-4* 40-30.

Blake took a injury time out in the second set when having some back problems. He recovered though and all in all it was a great match.

ToJo is back in the top again. I didn't see it coming. I can honestly see him breaking back in the top 20s next year if he can stay motivated.

Magnus Norman has done some wonders with the AO champ from 2002.

Now go crush Dr Ivo in the final!!

Thomas Johansson def. James Blake 3-6 6-1 7-6

I'm not sure how many but I know he saved at least 5 MPs, 1 at *4-5 and at least 4 at *5-6.

He makes a final after a while and that in front of his home crowd

Classical Blake - he is still so weak in these situations. He can win these kind of matches only against another chokers like Mathieu, Calleri or Del Potro.
BTW, after winning 7 tie-breaks in a row, now lost 4th cosecutive.

stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career

Blake was classy in the post match interview.

James loves to waste match points, he tasted it at the US Open (3 mps) and today (5 mps)...

Congrats to Tojo, awesome fight in front of his home crowd, hopefully he can take the title now!

ToJo What a fighter

I wonder how James feels now, so many wasted chances, not only those 5 mps, but all those bps.

5 match points including 0-40 at 5-6 on Tojo's serve. At least 2 were 2nd serves.

Then a total capitulation in the breaker after dominating the set.

Actually I haven't seen ToJo mentally stronger before!
