Not well played, he led the fourth with a break and had a match point at 5-2* or 5*-3, had a drive volley and hit it straight to Serra
. He also had another match point at 5-4*
Then he took a nasty fall at 5-4 and twisted his ankle... He got it taped and played ok afterwards. Serra took a timeout before the tiebreak and got a MASSAGE... What was the reason, since cramps are no longer valid?
Jarkko saved one MP at 4*-5 in the final set and then wasted numerous break points at 5-5... Serra finally took it.
Jarkko has a poor record against Serra but he usually plays well at the Slams in best of five... I'm very disappointed... He needed the points since the Sydney final points fell off. Serves him right in a sense though, he let Serra dominate the rallies and waited for the errors.
