R1 : Lapentti - Tipsarevic 6:4 4:6 6:1 7:6 . 3h41m

As always, Nico prefers to do it the hard way. Glad he finished this match today, so the schedule was almost done (Isner-Chela was postponed)

Typical Nico
Janko had two setpoints in the tie-break.

God damn it Janko.

Leveled up in the 4th, only to blow the TB.

Would of been nice to see a fifth set, and Tipsy messed up with 2 set points after making a nice comeback in the 4th, waste.

Nico choked a bit, served the match @ 5:4 and lost all points on serve then, Janko had nice chances of winning the TB, but didn't deliver

good fight from Tipsy in the 4th. saved a heap of virtual mp's at 2-4.

Allez Nico

Really I love Nico game style, he is a jewel on tour, and today my heart feels so sad because Guga says good bye , but when I see Nico fighting, with his impressive backhand and slices, I feel really good and comfy
