Kubot began the match with sensational 4:0 and didn't lose a service game until the end (Wawa had break points in four games, twice in the first set).
Q-bot led 5:1 in the first tie-break, had also 3 bp's at 3:2 in the third, and later was two points away from victory at 6:5, was 2 points away from victory at 9 different stages of the match!

I think it's tough to say it was classical choke, Wawrinka at 1:5 in the tie-break, definitely played his best tennis of the match, also in his last service game was very aggressive and didn't give Kubot any chance to reach MP.
