Petzschner had it and choked, expected one though.

Petzschner blew a match point in the TB also. But I'm not sure if he wasted a couple more before.

Re: München R1: Lleyton Hewitt def. Philipp Petzschner 6-2 6-7(2)7-6(8)

Amazing sportsmanship from Hewitt in the second set when he was leading 6-2, 5-4 40-15. Petzschner seemingly play's the ball long, Linesman calls out - match over, Petzchner comes to the net to shake Hewitt's hand, Hewitt starts to walk towards the net but wants another look at the line. Hewitt calls umpire over and insists that Petzchner be awarded the point as he thinks it touched. Dazed looks from Petzchner and umpire as Hewitt concedes the point. Petzchner breaks back to make it 5-all and eventually takes the set in a tie-break. Lucky escape in the end.

YES! Lleyton won a tiebreak AND his 500th match! Way to go, Lleyton! He worked hard to show that he deserved the wildcard.

Great ending I thought Hewitt was gonna lose after Petzschner held serve and saved 3 MP's to make in 5-5 in the 3rd set, but luckily he didn't

I think he had 3 in the tie break and one was on his serve

WOW. But not surprising as Lleyton would rather lose the match than receiving a point he does not deserve.

Are you crazy? He didn't do that at all. Hewitt said it was long.
