Pörtschach SF: Pico Mónaco saves 3mps and beats Ljuba Truba 6-4 6-7(4) 7-6(4)

Quality choke by Ljubo. He served for the match *5-4 30-0 in the third, and was broken (after not facing any bps in the second and third set). At that point it was clear Pico would clinch it.

Pico is now one win away from retaining his title

Ljubo had 0-40 when leading 5-3* in the third, so three MP's
Monaco won 1 point on serve in the final set tie break, Ljubo none.

Joachim Johansson / Ivo Karlovic / Andy Roddick / Ernests Gulbis / John Isner / Chris Guccione / Feliciano Lopez / Jo-Wilfried Tsonga / Ivan Ljubicic / Mario Ancic / Michael Llodra / Gilles Muller / Xavier Malisse / Max Mirnyi / Nicolas Mahut / Robin Söderling / Frank Dancevic / Olivier Rochus / Robert Kendrick

Not only that. Ivan had a BP to go *3-0 up , he had 3 MPs at 5-3 40-0* and as you said *5-4 30-0. In the TB Monaco won 1 point on his own serve and that was the difference.

Yeah I feel the most sorry for that one. Clear point at the net, but he hit it exactly in front of Monaco who knew what to do with it.
